Day 14: Choose Better

“Enter through the narrow gate.  For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life, and only a few will find it.”  Matthew 7:13-14This is a beautiful and telling verse.I have not […]

Day 13: The Little Things

I became a Christian at 13. I was pretty devout until the age of 17 when I decided that my will was better than God’s.  Brilliant, I know.  But, the point is, I have known the basic concepts of Christianity for a long, long time. As an adult, I’ve been wishy washy, trying to move back […]

Day 12: Put me in Coach!

As I sit here on a rainy day, right after the explosions at the Boston Marathon, I contemplate what to write.  Is there one thing to say or do that is more meaningful than any other?  No one knows what to say or do.  Our country is hurting.  We continue to be shaken to the […]

Day 11: Marriage Revisited

As I grew up, and I am sure many others are the same, I had a vision for my life.  A big part of this vision was the perfect, romantic marriage.  Romance and joy.   Joy and romance.  Love all around.  I don’t ever remember envisioning that there might be tough times or that I would […]

Day 10: The Holy Who?

I love to read, but I hate to waste my time on books or chapters of books that I don’t think I am going to get a lot out of.  Often when I pick up a book (I read mostly non-fiction right now) it is because there is a specific chapter, lesson, or message that […]

Day 9: Commit to my Church

We, as people, have the ability to convince ourselves of some pretty dumb things.  I’m not sure exactly how it happens, but it does, over and over again.

One of the dumb things I convinced myself of over the years was the notion that people don’t need to go to church to be Christians.  After all, […]

Day 8: Beer it is Delicious!

I’m just going to say it.  I really love beer.  To write that on a Christian blog, or even just say it as a woman, makes me 1. Sound like a hillbilly 2. Sound not-so Christian.  I think it would be better to say I love martinis or red wine.  At least then I might […]

Day 7: Christian Music, Nourish your Soul

I know I am getting a bit slow at getting these out, but regardless of when they come out, there will still be 40 posts/days of getting out of my comfort zone. It’s mainly her fault.  LOL!So on the first day of this challenge to myself, I posted the following:“I know your deeds, that you are […]

Day 6: Invest in my Marriage part 2: I will go first

I got A LOT of feedback from the first Invest in Your Marriage post, so I thought it would be worthwhile to put some of the information from our Love and Respect Conference out.  First and foremost, let me say, it was WORTH IT!!  I was nervous going in.  We were invited by some friends […]
