When We Need a Reset

Some days I feel like I need a total reset in my life. I feel like a reset is needed when I’m unproductive, or when I’ve been spending increasingly more time scrolling mindlessly through social media, or when it’s obvious I’m not present during conversations, or I’m more argumentative, or just overall not feeling like…

Don’t Forget to Rest

Not that I’ve watched, or watch, the Twilight Zone very often, but I do have a favorite episode. It’s about a man who was the last person on earth, and he lost all hope. Just as he was about to end his life, he saw a sign in the rubble that read Public Library. He…

Be Fearless

“On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled. The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath. But Jesus knew what…

Don’t Sit on Your Gift

Two of my favorite things to talk about is prayer and purpose. Even though I am no expert in either subject, I believe these two things, especially when put together, allow us to experience life like never before. Prayer, when direct, full of scripture, pure and heartfelt is how we talk to our Father. Prayer…
