WELCOME

Let's reclaim joy this christmas!

Do your Christmas preparations leave you less than joyful? We never plan on our holiday preparations consuming our days, but when they do and Christmas arrives, we find ourselves tired. We hope to stay focused on Jesus, but the busyness of life gets in the way, and our time with Him gets pushed aside.

This devotional book will help you slow down and experience the joy you desire by connecting with Jesus. Each day, you’ll find practical suggestions to create space for worship and prayer. In as little as 10 minutes a day, you can experience the joy and refreshment you desire.

I’m so glad you’re here. My prayer is you’ll join me as we gather to encourage and inspire each other to follow Jesus in this adventure we call life.

Grab your favorite beverage, mine is coffee, take a deep breath and close your eyes. My friend, Jesus loves you!!!

No matter what you are going through today, Jesus is in it with you. He’s not on the sidelines. He is present and active in your life. You matter to Him. He understands what you are feeling. HE SEES YOU!

Life is messy and full of challenges. Just when I think it’s going along great, an unexpected curveball comes my way. It’s in life’s challenges where I’ve found some of my biggest adventures by turning to Jesus for help and trusting His loving guidance.

Now, don’t get me wrong, not all the challenges in my life are big and life changing. Some are mundane—broken appliances, vehicles, or no internet—and others are life altering illnesses. But each one has drawn me closer to Jesus. Each an opportunity to strengthen my faith if I allowed.

My friend, even though life is messy and challenging, in the arms of Jesus, we have an opportunity for an adventure when we choose to lean into Him, grab His hand, and allow Him to lead us through. We don’t need to power through alone, His strength will sustain us. We don’t need to have all the answers, Jesus does. The adventure is in journeying through the challenges with Jesus as our guide.

I pray you’ll join me on an adventure with Jesus.

Wrapped in a hoodie, my hands tucked in the sleeves, I am surprised by fall this year. The cooler air, the muted greens and yellows of the leaves and the morning wind, all reminders the season is changing. I’ve enjoyed the summer on the lake. Waterskiing, sunset cruises, and gatherings with family and friends. Each a …

Butterflies

Leaves rustle, twisting and turning in the breeze as the forest branches sway, making a symphony of music. Along the path, fluttering through the air, rising and falling with the breeze, a small yellow butterfly searches for a place to land. The sunlight enhances its bright yellow hues. Though smaller than the nail of my …
