Friendships are a gift of love from our Heavenly Father above. I truly cherish the friendships God has blessed me with!  I am thankful for every unique individual that God has brought into my life. That is inclusive of my blood family, my in-laws, and especially my husband! Just family alone has given me so many special friendships. My little “sister” by marriage is my best bud forever. Friends make  [ Read More ]

  We live in a very fast paced world. We can get an oil change in 15 minutes. We can get pizza delivered to our door in 30 minutes. We can get everything we want shipped the next day, even the kitchen sink. We can pump our gas from the “fastest pumps in town”. We like express lanes, speedy checkouts, and our food fast. The other day my husband and  [ Read More ]

Judges and Ruth Lesson 5: The Spoils of War (Judges 8)   This is one of those chapters that is incredibly bittersweet. It will leave us both cheering for Gideon and cringing at some of his poor choices. This is a powerful reminder that our Bible heroes are human too; the only perfect person God ever used to fulfill his purpose was Jesus.   Read Judges 8:1-3   These three  [ Read More ]

Let It Overflow–Harbor in the Tempest

Posted by Lacy Crowell March - 18 - 2015 7 Comments

I am a professed people-watcher. If I had unlimited free time I could easily spend hours at a park, the mall, or even Wal-Mart, just watching the way people interact. I love to watch their body language, the way they dress, the way they speak to those around them, and even who individuals choose to surround themselves with. Unfortunately, however, sometimes my fascination with people-watching makes my heart hurt. For  [ Read More ]

Are You Distracted?

Distractions are funny. They come in so many forms. I have two daughters—one is very logical, shy, and quiet while the other one is very talkative, outgoing, and busy. My outgoing daughter is known for beginning a conversation and then getting distracted by almost anything (I think she gets this from me)! Distractions like this are pretty innocent. Sometimes however distractions can be dangerous. Our family has a towing company.  [ Read More ]

Treasuring God’s Word– Mary Rose and Me

Posted by admin March - 11 - 2015 2 Comments

Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You. Psalm 119:11 Mary Rose rolled over in her cozy bed and blinked. Morning. It came just as fast as her mother told her it would. Spying her clothes and shoes that had been laid out the night before, she remembered. Sunday. “Today I get to say my memory verse in Bible class that I’ve practiced  [ Read More ]

Water For the Soul

“People need encouragement – and a lot of it!”  I once heard a preacher say this in a sermon and I believe it:  we do need encouragement – and a lot of it.  In the Bible, we read about a man named Joseph who was also called Barnabas by the apostles.  The name Barnabas means “son of encouragement” – what a special man Barnabas was.  He was such an encouragement  [ Read More ]
