It’s Moving Day! {Exodus 40}

Moses did everything just as the Lord commanded him.

Have you ever moved from one home to another? It’s a lot of work – but it’s exciting! I remember preparing my boxes for the movers.  Each box was labeled by a big black marker. On moving day, I stood in command, pointing the men in the right direction. In Exodus 40, it’s moving day and God is in command! God is telling Moses to set up the tabernacle and exactly where to put each piece.  God is detailed and Moses is obedient. “Moses did everything just as the Lord commanded him.”   (Exodus 40:16) Seven times we are told […]

What Am I Doing Here?

What am I doing here?

This is the conclusion of the “Women Leading Well” series!  Today we have a guest.  There’s a message from me to you – at the end – please don’t miss it! Sometimes in the midst of babies, baths and bedtime stories, we can lose our way.  We desire to be used by God but perhaps there’s no time left in the day for leading anything! Rosilind writes: “What am I even doing here?” The question reverberated in my head as I stood in the middle of my living room rocking my baby and weeping. 7 years ago, I had boarded a […]

If Tomorrow Never Comes

If Tomorrow never comes

By Sonya Schroeder at OvercomerOutreach.com I was 15 when I heard these words for the very first time, “We are getting a divorce”. I remember it like yesterday. My eyes filled with water, my stomach started to ache, I could not breath. Then the thoughts started hitting me like a ton of bricks. My world as I knew it for the last 10 years was about to change with the breathing of those 4 words. What would tomorrow look like when there is no mom & dad just mom? Would we have to move? Where would we go? The biggest […]

How Pinterest Makes Us Feel {Exodus 31,35}

How Pinterest Makes Us Feel

Pinterest – it’s a virtual pin board where we can pin recipes, cute shoes, birthday party ideas, great quotes, home decorating ideas, DIY tutorials, hair styles, and much, much more! We love it (it’s the fastest growing social media platform right now) and apparently…according to my google search (I screenshot for you  below)–we hate it. I typed the words, “pinterest makes me feel” and this is what automatically came up: So this is sad right? Because there is so much to learn and enjoy on Pinterest.  But clearly the feast for our eyes there, makes us feel really bad about ourselves. […]

Heaven is For Real: What the Bible Says About Heaven {Exodus 26-30}

Heaven is for real - what the Bible says about heaven

There have been a lot of books written about heaven that sit on the best seller lists. Clearly, people are curious about the after life. But rather than listening to a 4 year old’s story or hearing from the “Boy Who Came Back From Heaven” who recently announced it was a lie and he did not go to heaven –  I recommend we look into God’s Word and see what He says about HIS dwelling place. As we read Exodus 26-30 this week, you may have felt bogged down with the details of the building of the tabernacle ….but check out […]

How to Deal With Wounding In the Church

How to deal with wounding in the church

Insults hurt from those outside the church but inside the church, the wounding can hurt so much more deeply.  The reason is because the church is meant to be a safe place. Over the years, I have experienced my deepest wounds from my church family. I suppose it’s because I trust the people in my church and have assumed that if we are all following God’s Word, wounding should not happen.  But it does. Why? Because the church is filled with sinners and the reality is we fail each other. Sadly, I have been naive at times and too trusting. […]
