I’m terrible at prayer. Actually, it’s the discipline of prayer—setting aside time, focusing and making it a priority—at that, I am terrible. I talk to God all the time as I come and go in my day-to-day life—from ramblings in the car to inner dialogues as I ride the elevator at work. I am talking to God each day, but as for quality time—it’s skimpy. And life is hard. This week a dear … [Read more...]

It was certainly an … [Read more...]

A couple of months ago I heard a worship song that I have since played over and over and over and over again (you can ask my roommate and my friends—they’ll tell you). It’s “Good, Good Father” by Housefires, and I think I’ve finally realized why I love the song so much. It’s because it declares who God is.

I have a pen-pal. I know, right? Who has a pen pal these days? Well I do. Her name is Clare and she is the most adorable 10-year-old girl on the face of the planet. Ever. We don’t speak the same language, but with the help of my friends at Compassion International, I’m able to write letters to Clare and maintain this special friendship from over 7,000 miles away. I am Clare’s sponsor—meaning I … [Read more...]

I’m 48 years old, single, and have never had children of my own. I’ve never been pregnant. This was a shock to the beautiful women I met in Uganda in late January. We were all sharing testimonies. Mine was simple. Divorced, no children, but God has been faithful. Theirs were much more difficult and heartbreaking; husbands kicking them out for only having female children, children with HIV, … [Read more...]

And God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:10) “And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” (Genesis 1:2b) Atlantic City, New Jersey is well known for its casinos to be sure. But did you know that it is also the home of the Miss America Pageant and has been since 1921? The city is also the home of the world … [Read more...]

This week, while many in the country are bracing for even more winter weather, Panama City Beach is bracing for Spring Break. The sun and sand become scattered with college students, rowdy, reckless, and rebelling. The locals prepare for the invasion and disruption they've come to know as March and quiet forces make their way south. The Georgia Baptist Disaster Relief Team links arms with … [Read more...]

This summer, we asked women to share with us about one verse from Scripture and how it has impacted their journey. We’ll be posting some of their answers here on the blog. We pray you’ll be encouraged in your own journey as you read about those of others.  This testimony is from Sara in Vancleave, MS.  They will have no fear of bad news;     their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the … [Read more...]
