The Right Roots

Amazing  Tree Roots

This summer marked the beginning of my seventh year of living overseas as well as the start of my seventh year of marriage. Never did I imagine this is how I'd spend my 27th year of life. Yet life is funny, isn't it? We do our best to predict and prepare, but a twist in the plot seems to be the only certainty there is. I can think back to my days in pre-marital counseling, and the words … [Read more...]

Here are links we're loving this week! We love jewelry here at LifeWay Women so we think Rocksbox is so fun. Basically, it's a jewelry rental-subscription service.

You may have noticed, we love Periscope (follow us @LifeWayWomen). We're having fun … [Read more...]

Book Notes | Fear and Faith

BookNotes_700x500

I’m reading Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves by Trillia J. Newbell. My sweet daughter, Kali, gave me the book for Mother’s Day. A great gift for the mom who loves to read. And a great gift because the truth is I’ve struggled with fear most of my life. If you name the fear I’ve probably experienced it. Everything from spiders, mice, and sharks to fearing people, God, and … [Read more...]

The Armor of God | Excerpt

Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Colossians 3:2-3, NASB Renewing our minds and deflecting the enemy’s advances to control them is not for the faint of heart. It requires vigilance. Aggressive, proactive attention. I know one woman who has taken the concept of wearing her helmet very … [Read more...]

Some days feel like a battle from sunup to sundown. You sleep through the alarm, your presentation at work doesn't go well, your children (or you) really need a nap, and your exhaustion trumps cleaning the house. Can anyone relate? The struggle is real on those days. And we feel the tension in our souls. But there's an underlying struggle on the good days too. All day, every day, there is … [Read more...]
