The Silly Wooden People

One thing I do to help with children’s church is to read a picture book to the kids every once in a while. I love doing this because the kids love it so much! The kids that have trouble focusing on anything are enraptured by a picture book. Who would have thought? Here’s a bunch…

Verse of the Week | Jeremiah 33:3

​Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. – Jeremiah 33:3, KJV What struck me about this verse is the surety of the statement,”I will answer thee.” God will never hold back his goodness and wisdom from those who ask for it. When we…

Hap-ily Ever After

On Saturday, our church went to a youth rally in a nearby town. There were teens there from other churches that I had met at camp before, and we had a lot of fun! We played real-life Clue (the board game) and they did such a good job putting it all together. The speaker gave…

Verse of the Week | Isaiah 58:11

​And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. – Isaiah 58:11, KJV I don’t even know what to say to expand upon this verse! It’s the ultimate…

Meaningful Worship Songs

With what God has been teaching me about worship lately, I decided to make a worship playlist. Many modern worship songs are too repetitive for me, so if you feel that way too, these songs are for you! Casting Crowns, “Loving My Jesus” This is just an earnest, soft song with some of Mark Hall’s…

Verse of the Week | Proverbs 12:22

​Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight. – Proverbs 12:22, KJV I noticed something about these verses a while ago. It says lying lips (not lies) are the abomination. When I was little, the word abomination was defined to me as “something that you hate so much, it…

I’m not Raising Grass

Several years ago, my great-grandpa passed away. I had the privilege of knowing him, and he was such a humble, funny, godly man. A few days ago, we had a birthday party for my grandpa (my great-grandpa’s son). My dad’s present to him was a framed picture of my great-grandpa with the words, “We’re not…

Verse of the Week | Daniel 2:20-21

​Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: – Daniel 2:20-21, KJV My Nana told…

What Is Worship?

One thing I’ve been learning a lot about lately is worship. For a while, I felt that too much of my prayer life was just asking. (I did do a little thanking, but not a lot.) Go down the checklist, ask that these people have good health, safety, wisdom, etc. That is a good thing…

Verse of the Week | Luke 17:33

​Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. – Luke 17:33, KJV This verse was in my devotional book the other day. The angle that the author chose was one I hadn’t given much consideration before – basically, that life is short. If God…
