“I just want you to fall in love again.”

This quote is from a print that I gave away as part of a Lenten package on Instagram, and I think it’s a great way to approach our Lenten practices this year.

We can give up chocolate, coffee (your family asked me to tell you, “P...

I don’t usually do the word of the year thing, and I don’t really do resolutions very well. I just can’t keep to one thing for an entire year.

This year, though, God pretty clearly gave me a word that would be my focus.

In this season of Advent, we’re waiting for Jesus to enter into our world. Whether it is for the first time or the twentieth time, we’re waiting.

 “The Lord God then called to the man and asked him: Where are you?” (Genesis 3:9)

If God is all-knowing, this question doesn’t make sense....

This summer, my husband and I were enjoying our no-kids vacation, eating at a shared table in a restaurant in New York. We started talking occasionally to the couple next to us after eating their bread that was delivered to the table. (We thought it was like the chips...

When we vacation, my family and I love to head to the mountains and national parks. There is something about being outside and hiking for hours that refreshes our souls.

Without anything to separate or distract us we talk, we laugh, we discuss, we confront, and we disco...
