Considering that the first Living Proof Live event of 2012 isn't until April, you might be wondering why in the world I'm sharing info about LPL, you know, now. However, since I know that lots of folks plan trips to LPL with their churches and/or Bible study groups, I thought you might like a heads up about a great perk LifeWay Women is offering if you're attending an LPL with a large group.

So I know that today is a holiday, sure to be filled with all manner of laid-back goodness, and I can't think of a better way to start off your day than to listen to this version of How Great Is Our God from Passion 2012. "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have … [Read more...]

Well, I'm typing this post through tears - but I wanted to make sure to point you in the direction of one of the sweetest things I've ever read. Vicki Courtney's daughter got married right before Christmas, and Vicki taped a precious moment between Paige and her daddy at the wedding rehearsal.

I have a couple of big goals and a few small-ish ones for this year; I'm guessing you probably do, too. And unlike years' … [Read more...]

Last night I was hopping along a delightful little Internet rabbit trail, just sort of clicking from one link to the next with no real direction, and somehow I ended up watching this clip from one of Beth Moore's appearances on Life Today. Oh, it was a timely word for me. I've actually had several conversations with a sweet friend about this very topic (r-e-g-r-e-t) lately, and I'm convinced that … [Read more...]

I realize that we're all probably a little sluggish this morning considering that yesterday was more than likely chock-full of excitement and activity and food and celebrating and maybe even some repeated viewings of A Christmas Story (which, by the way, our eight year-old watched for the first time and loved). But this morning I woke up thinking about a song that sweet Paige Greene mentioned to … [Read more...]
