This story came across my email this past week and I thought to myself, now this is why I do what I do. No, this has nothing to do with me personally, but sometimes I get caught up in the minutiae of work and need to be reminded of how God is working and how I'm so blessed to be even such a small little part in His work. Terry lives in Millington, TN, a large Navy/Marine military base and … [Read more...]

Today is a big day for our favorite worship leader, Travis Cottrell. You want to know why? Yes. He has written a book. And it releases today! If you've ever had the chance to worship with Travis at a Living Proof Live event or anywhere else for that matter, then you know what a heart he has for worship. He has a heart so focused on where God leads that he seems to be able to completely forget … [Read more...]

All righty. I have a real treat that I'm going to share with y'all today. For the last couple of months I've been reading and admiring the fresh new look and feel of Home Life magazine, and I am just taken with the fact that it is so much fun. It's colorful and modern and just a little bit funky. There are articles for every age and stage of family life, and it's truly a joy to read. In the May … [Read more...]

Priscilla Shirer's new book, One in a Million, hits the shelves in book stores and discount stores and online stores this week, and if this video is any indication, it is going to be absolutely incredible. Not to mention convicting. Priscilla wrote a great post about her book yesterday on her blog (you can follow her on Twitter, too). And remember: there's also a Bible study version - you can … [Read more...]

About three years ago I was looking for an online Bible study that I could do on my own. It was one of those times when my schedule didn't match up very well with the times my church was offering Bible study, so I thought maybe I could find some downloads on the web. The first place I looked? The LifeWay Women site. They only had a couple of downloadable studies at the time, and I'd already … [Read more...]

Can I just tell you how much I enjoyed my ride into work this morning? It's all because I was so enjoying my new CD by Kelly Minter, Loss, Love & Legacy. I'm just saying, go to or your nearest LifeWay Christian Store and pick yourself one up along with the new Ruth Bible study. This is the type of study that I love because it's about hanging out with girlfriends, … [Read more...]

When Melanie and I were in Nashville for the National Leadership Forum, we had been in the LifeWay building for approximately four minutes when our friend Mary walked up and said, "Did y'all hear Margaret Feinberg? Because I LOVED HER." Unfortunately Melanie and I didn't hear Margaret Feinberg because we were still in the vicinity of the Nashville airport when she spoke, but thanks to the wonder … [Read more...]

I know I say this every week but I am seriously loving the Esther study. Not only do I feel like I'm reading the book of Esther in a way I never have before, but I am finding so many God-breathed lessons along the way. The most profound thing for me this week was something Beth said in the Session 3 DVD. I don't remember her exact words, but the way I wrote it down was like this: "When we're … [Read more...]

I don't know about y'all, but I think "Esther" just keeps getting better each week. I am so wrapped up in the story now even though I've read it a bunch of times before and know how it all ends. There's something about the way Beth brings out certain details that has made it come alive for me. I swear I'm sitting on the edge of my seat to see what's going to happen next. The day that really got … [Read more...]
