Grace P. Cho: Am I Grateful or Do I Whine Just Like My Kids?

7/11/2022
We must slow down our minds and our hearts to recognize what we have to be grateful for. Our posture determines our attitude. Practicing gratitude helps us to make mental and emotional shifts throughout the day when it’s not going well, and it grounds us and gives us a better perspective.

Becky Keife: Coming Alongside Your Anxious Child

7/8/2022
Jesus sees. Jesus understands. And Jesus holds it all. As parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, aunts, mentors, and friends, we all have the privilege and responsibility of paying attention to children and adolescents.

Kayla Craig: Finding God in the Pebbles in Our Lives

7/7/2022
Maybe the lesson is for us to enjoy the moment and not the end result. I can be so focused on what is to come that I miss the delight of being in God’s presence now. Of seeing the image of God in my life, in my neighbor, in myself — now. Join the conversation: https://incourage.me/?p=224628 -- Hey you. Yes, YOU!

Stephanie Bryant: What We Really Want Is Peace in the Middle

7/6/2022
Jesus is fighting for you. What we really want is peace in the middle, don’t we? We want to know in the middle of the diagnosis, job loss, feuding friend, political drama, ignoring husband, and rebellious children that Jesus will win, that we will not be overcome by evil.

7/5/2022
If you’re tempted to apologize for who you are or how you are, please don’t.

Anjuli Paschall: The Aroma of Christ Can Smell Like Cigarettes and Bourbon

Kathi Lipp: Sorting Out Our Values and Tossing Comparison

7/1/2022
Some days, it’s miracle enough to get the laundry done imperfectly. We live in “working” houses. We cook, we eat, we play, we pray, we work, we study, we create, we rest, we love, and we live in our houses. Somehow, we’ve made the idea of a messy house, a pile of undone laundry, or heating up a frozen meal into a morality issue.

Kaitlyn Bouchillon: Get Your Hopes Up

6/30/2022
Sometimes the answer to our prayers is not a yes or a no but a Person. With everything in me, I believe God is healer. What I’ve come to see, though, is that healing doesn’t always look like what I’ve pictured. Sometimes the answer to our prayers is not a yes or a no but a Person. We get God, and in my desperate reaching, I’ve found Him to be enough. Are you longing for healing? Listen to Kaitlyn about why we can get our hopes up. Leave a comment here:...

Michelle Reyes: The Lost Art of Play and Why the Church Needs More Fun

6/29/2022
God designed life to be full of joy. Many of us feel burnt out these days. We’re tired and weary of each other and even the church, at large, at times. What is the way forward? Yes, we need the fellowship of Sunday morning services. Yes, we need to be taught and nourished by God's Word through sermons and Bible studies. But what if the path forward for healing and deeper bonds also included a commitment to playing together more? Listen to Michelle Reyes about the remedy of play and...

Jami Nato: Passing Notes: a Lesson in God’s Love for Us

6/23/2022
The true remedy for our shame is God's love. "I am stupid and a bad kid you don’t want," the note from my eleven-year-old said in sloppy handwriting. Don’t we do this with God? Don’t we struggle with the same shame when coming to Him — or when deciding not to come to Him — because we think He'll reject us based on our performance, on being able to control our emotions and actions just so? We loved Jami's tender story of an interaction with her daughter that teaches us all about God's...

Michele Cushatt: The Fellowship of the Lonely

6/21/2022
We can choose to see each other, as we are, and allow a little space in this corner of the internet to not be alone in it. David dared to publicly admit his loneliness. Perhaps that is the secret. And perhaps that is what God has wanted for us all along -- to share in our collective loneliness and, thus, find relief in it.
