The Excellent Wife: Week 7 Homework

Hey wifey friend. As I was driving to our gathering on Friday, I felt the Holy Spirit begin to whisper to me. I was passing all of these gorgeous trees on my drive. Trees full of beautiful colors. Leaves turning browns and oranges and adoring shades of autumn. Leaves that, at any moment, will fall…

GATHER: The story of Jenny Franks

There I was. Living through the biggest tragedy of my life. Had this really happened to me, my family, my husband? Why God? This is not the life I had planned for myself… I don’t want to live like this… I could go on and on with all the questions, complaints, and tears that were…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Warrior” I find myself continuing to ponder on the truth of II Chronicles 16:9- “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him…” God is looking for the warriors. Yes, He does strengthen the hearts of those weak and wounded but He also…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Place of Safety” “I love you, Lord; You are my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my Savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me and my place of safety”.                    …

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Divided Loyalty” “…Do not waiver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.

“You light a lamp for me. The Lord my God lights up my darkness”                                               Psalm 18:28 “The Lord is my light and my salvation so why should I be afraid?”    …

To the girl who…is flirting with the world.

First things first. I’m so glad you chose today to come and peak into Flourish’s post. I’m gonna jump into this, but first I want to throw out a quick caution to the words ahead. They are words that hold a a very serious, very heavy topic. I’ve walked this out. I’ve flirted with the…

To the girl who…doesn’t understand why this is happening to her.

I have found myself standing in the middle of a storm I never expected. I am now standing in the middle of the waves, knees about to buckle underneath me. I don’t understand why I’m standing here. I don’t understand what’s happening right now. Am I dreaming? Am I really facing this trial right now?…

To the girl who..is stuck in the in-between.

Have you ever found yourself feeling sorta…stuck? You look head of you. You see what’s coming. You look behind you. You see what came. What went. You do a 360 around your life and you see what’s happening right now. And you just feel stuck in this abyss. Stuck in this…in between phase of your…

Help Ashleigh and Brett reach $10,000 for their adoption…

Man oh man.  I never realized just how expensive it is to adopt a child. There are many avenues that one can take to pursue adoption, but the path that Brett and I feel like the Lord has led us to is not a cheap one. That being said, every sweat that drops, every tear thats…
