Looking on Others with Love and Mercy

 

When someone frustrates, disappoints, or hurts me, it is often difficult for me to look on them with love. Instead, I can feel bitterness or anger taking root. I loved the verses in Mark 10:21 and Lamentations 3:22-23 which reminded me of the unending and undeserved love ...

Open the Door

I recently went back and read a sermon I’ve long remembered by a friend and mentor, Ben Tyson. I always remember the sermon because Ben helped to answer a question I often wondered about, “Why was King David—a man whose life was marked by moments of great faithfulness and wisdom ...

I Don't Wanna Go If You Don't Go

Ever since I started doing a blog for real estate several years ago, I've included posts called "Contemplations from Katie," where I've written about different things I'm learning, growing in, or desiring to share with others.  I was recently encouraged by someone to try doing this ...

The Great Chasm

The Great Chasm

Over Spring Break, our family took a trip to Arizona to spend time with my parents and to visit the Grand Canyon. It was the first time Luke, I, or the kids had experienced it.  What a sight! Standing at its edge, you can’t help but be in awe ...

Black History, Racism, & Our Hope for Racial Reconciliation

February is Black History Month, or more appropriately, African American History Month.  Although African American history IS American history and, as such, should be honored, considered, and studied all year, our family wanted to take the opportunity this month to focus in, with greater intentionality, on this specific piece ...

The Word That Brings Fullness of Joy

Last year, at the beginning of the pandemic, I decided I wanted to read the Bible chronologically in a year.  I’ve started this a few times in my life but never made it all the way through.  However, by God’s grace and with the help of an app ...

It's Gonna Be Okay

It's Gonna Be Okay

Sometimes I have struggled with telling my kids, “It’s gonna be okay.”  Because, sometimes, I really don’t know if it’s gonna be okay.  I can’t say, “It’s okay, we won’t ever have to worry about war here.”  Or, “It’s okay, you’re healthy.  If you get sick ...

There's A Better Way to Engage in Political Conversation

As I’m preparing to thoughtfully exercise my right to vote on November 3rd, I’ve found myself discouraged with the dehumanization and divisiveness of our current political climate and weary of the uncivilized discourse bred by our highly polarized system.  Since I don’t love conflict, my initial reaction is to ...

Where Do You Look for Wisdom?

I recently came across an article that caught my attention.  It wasn't so much the words in the article or the title, but the image that accompanied it.  The image (displayed above) shows a pastor in the center fighting a losing battle with news media on either ...
