  • Random Snippets
    • Time to Do Hard Things
      Today, our culture expects very little from teens—not much more than staying in school and doing a few chores.
    • ♫ Rock Bottom
      I'm a sucker for great music, and Jimmy Needham knows how to make great music. Check out the song Rock Bottom…
    • Eternally Focused
      Reading about this kind of crazy love Francis has for Lisa is quite extraordinary. Often times we are compelled to have a Christ-centered relationship, but what does that really look like? It looks weird… really weird. From what I see in the Scriptures, it is extreme and counter-cultural.
  • When Asking for Prayer…

    I’m going to be talking about today as if it were still Monday, though the clock marked 12:15AM is telling me otherwise.

    It was one of those off-days, where practically everything in life was attacking me and making me fumble. Whether it was barely making it to jury duty on time, or finding myself trying to drink from a bottle with its cap still on, or feeling ignored after offering to do something nice, nothing really fell into place. So naturally, being the wonderful Christian I am, I asked my friend to pray for me.

    Okay… not so wonderful. She asked me if I had talked to God myself. At that moment, I realized that I stumbled through half the day without talking to God. Why did I bother scanning through my buddy list to ask for prayer when I could have done so myself?

    Thank you Kat for being a Godly woman and a wise reminder.
