Our Devotion in Motion

Organizationally Yours-Where to Start?

I’m sitting at church, dutifully taking notes as our pastor shares from God’s word, when my husband leans over and glances at what I have written.

Organizationally Yours- Going for the Prize

  All right, I’m weird…okay, okay, I have a problem. I am an office/school supply/curriculum junky. I admit it! It’s the organizational-colored glasses I wear.

A Heart That Passionately Values Being a Mother

Passion can be an overused word these days. It is usually used to describe a deep longing that fuels you to accomplish great things with your given time, treasures and talents. It conjures up images of the super successful person who relentlessly does not give up in achieving supernatural success. It is rarely used in the context of the duties …

Just My Size

Our seven year old daughter was constantly doing some craft or project. She announced one day that she needed a cross for her room. She asked me if she could make it out of wood and decorate it. “Uh huh”, I answered as I did the dishes. About a half hour later she called for my help. “I have the …
