Behold Apr17

Behold As last year was coming to a close and this year was beginning, I kept coming across the word “behold.”  It’s a word we don’t use anymore and one I’ve honestly never paid attention to, but it’s all over the Bible.  Because I kept hearing it, seeing it, and seemingly not able to escape […]

Carry, don’t Lift, Burdens Apr10

Carry, don’t Lift, Burdens Guest blog post by Courtney DeFeo One of the biggest reasons we don’t mentor is because we are full with our own junk. Well, that’s my excuse. I have so much on my own heart, with my own family, that I fear I cannot emotionally or physically manage anyone else. The […]

No Shortcuts Feb20

No Shortcuts We all love shortcuts – finding the quickest way possible to get us somewhere or something. The route with less traffic. Buying online and picking up at the store.
