Church as a Haven {Five Minute Friday}

I’m joining with Kate and the Five Minute Friday crew for our weekly 5-minute free writing. Today we’re writing on the word: haven. Go. I never imagined church would be a haven. Funny, isn’t it? Church should be, right? It should be the place we turn when we have nothing else. Heck, it should be… Continue reading Church as a Haven {Five Minute Friday}

Expectations {Five Minute Friday}

It’s been a while, friends, since I’ve written with the Five Minute Friday crew. So I’m joining in with the amazing #fmfparty community and writing on a common theme, for just five minutes. Today’s word is: Expect. Go. When I hopped on a plane and flew to South Africa for two years, I was told… Continue reading Expectations {Five Minute Friday}

Wholeness of Community {Five Minute Friday}

It’s Five Minute Friday time, when I gather with other writers from all corners of the globe as we write together, for just five minutes, on a common prompt. When we put away the inner editor and just let the words flow. Our gracious hostess, Kate, has all the details on her blog, as well… Continue reading Wholeness of Community {Five Minute Friday}

Season of Quiet {Five Minute Friday}

It’s not Friday, and it’s nearly a week late, but after a long hiatus, I’m back to join in with the Five Minute Friday crew, where we gather each week to write for just five minutes on a common theme. And this week (actually, last week) is “quiet”. Check out Kate’s blog for the full… Continue reading Season of Quiet {Five Minute Friday}

Let My Heart Dwell {Five Minute Friday}

It’s time clean this dusty space, knocking down the cobwebs and clearing out the dust, replacing them with words once again. It’s been nearly a month since I wrote anything here (though you wouldn’t know, because I scheduled posts through the end of October while I was in Cambodia). I’ve been quiet since I boarded… Continue reading Let My Heart Dwell {Five Minute Friday}

Blindly Brave {#write31days}

Over the past year, I’ve gotten to know a few of the #FMFParty ladies pretty well as we planned the #FMFRetreat together. Last summer, we were finally able to meet in person, which was an incredible blessing. One of the lovely ladies, Mary, gave a devotion at the retreat about living bravely, and it spoke… Continue reading Blindly Brave {#write31days}

Words of Power {#FMFPartySnailMail}

Words are powerful. Too often, they are powerful in the wrong ways. They tear us down and break our wills. Crush us into the ground, taking the fight out of us in the process. This world? It’s rough. We can so easily see the ways we don’t measure up, or can’t catch up. And while… Continue reading Words of Power {#FMFPartySnailMail}

Alone, Not Alone {Five Minute Friday}

It’s Friday, which means it’s Five Minute Friday time, where I join up with Kate at the #FMFParty gang to write together one a common prompt, for five minutes only (okay, it might’ve been one or two more today). Today’s word is: Alone. This isn’t where I planned to be. Like any normal American girl,… Continue reading Alone, Not Alone {Five Minute Friday}
