For Your Faith
Whether I’m playing Cranium with my kids, scrubbing the kitchen floor, hiking in the Minnesota woods with my husband, or driving to my small-group Bible study, I’m always watching for bits of life to weave into my books, and listening for God’s still, small voice.
Sometimes, the things I discover cause me pain, sometimes they tickle my heart with humor, other times they fill me with a deeper devotion. Always they lift my focus back to the God of all creation.
I hope you can curl up with a cup of tea and draw encouragement from some of these devotional musings I’ve written over the years.
