Worth the Read {the 31 Days edition}

31daysButtonI am certainly not the only writer taking part in the 31 days of series this year.  In fact, there are over 1500 of us participating! I have perused the contributors and wanted to highlight a few that fit in well with this #chronicallywell series. Just click on the links to visit their sites.

I pray that these 31 days are a blessing to you.



31 Days to Living Well with Chronic Illness- An Introduction

Hi friends! Every year when I join the blogging community in committing to write on one topic every day for 31 days I question my sanity.  And, I say I will never participate again.  And, every year I develop some type of writers amnesia and when God lays a new topic on my heart, IContinue Reading

Playing Catch Up

It has been a whirlwind two weeks.  Last week, Mike and I traveled to Ft. Leonard Wood, MO to pick up our soldier. It was a long, grueling 15 hour drive.  But, I did get to spend it with this cutie. We watched Jason graduate as a military police officer for the US Army {mamaContinue Reading

Peeking In

I tend to be quiet here when I am going through something{s}. Really, I have a lot to say but need to say it in real life before I can go blabbing about it on my blog. Plus, I am sick.  After a night in the ER with two bags of fluids, a really strongContinue Reading

InstaFriday #2

This week has been a long one.  TGIF, for sure! I have two posts in draft that I just don’t feel led to hit publish on right now but just know, God and I are going through some stuff together.  Confidence was definitely the right word to choose for 2012.  Stay tuned for an announcementContinue Reading

InstaFriday and a Bible reading plan update

I got an iPhone 4s {insert geeky squeal here} right before Christmas! I am in love with this gadget, particularly the Pinterest app and Instagram. Imagine my delight in finding a bloggy link-up for sharing your photos from the week {cause I take a ridiculous amount of photos with my phone}. Here is my weekContinue Reading

{day 19} Let go of what’s holding you back

As long as we are holding on to or harboring {unconfessed} sin in our lives, we will never experience the joy of the Lord. ~Pastor Ed Taylor There is something holding you back from experiencing a clean heart.  From experiencing the fullness of the abundant relationship with God that you were designed for. It’s you. Continue Reading

{day 18} Why forgiveness is so hard

  We serve a God of relationships, a God that values unity. We are called to unity and the enemy is constantly seeking to destroy that in any way possible. Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.  I urge you, therefore, to reaffirmContinue Reading

31 Days to a Clean Heart check-in

Thank you for grace, friends. I have not posted every day {didn’t I predict that would happen?} I still have much to say on this topic!  We will continue next week with more obstacles to a clean heart and finish up the month with action steps. But, this weekend, the frenetic pace of life MUSTContinue Reading

{day 12}Walk in Faith

Sweet Pea is taking her first tentative steps. She much prefers furniture walking– holding on to the couch, a chair or even my leg– to letting go and walking on her own.  When she realizes she is standing without support, she sits down.  As believers, we can become furniture walkers too. We say and thinkContinue Reading
