who is my tribe?


When I am passionate about something I go after it with everything in me.  Sometimes I forget to ask God if this is what He has in mind, and I end up getting rejected and hurt in my pursuit to reach earthly dreams. In those cases I fully take all the blame and know that […]


Romans 5:3

Today’s guest post by Gianna Kordatzky from Traveling Thought and Family Fun Twin Cities.  So honored to have Gianna back and thankful for her willingness to share her faith with us!     For once, we didn’t have anything planned. No festivals, no time-consuming projects, no errands. Nothing. The weekend was a blank page. It was splendid. Then, the […]

What is the Fragrance?


guest post by Gianna Kordatzky from Traveling Thought and Family Fun Twin Cities Sitting at my booth at the farmer’s market, I fed my kids a picnic supper (I must say it didn’t last them three hours—I guess that’s what happens when you eat supper at 4:30).

Faith and Favortism

With only four weeks left of my James: Mercy Triumphs study by Beth Moore, I am feeling quite bittersweet. I love that I have learned so much about James and myself, but I just dont want it to end. Beth said this quote at the very beginning of study and she could not have been more spot […]
