Being Transformed--One Degree at a Time

Being Transformed--One Degree at a Time

This past weekend, I was able to escape into the mountains with some women from our church for our first Table Rock Women’s Retreat.   Retreats like these are one of my greatest joys.  I love being out in God’s beautiful creation, developing deeper friendships, having time to rest ...

Losing Linus

Losing Linus

When Hadley was almost three, we decided to get a family cat.  We went to the Humane Society, visited a room with several kittens bounding around, and watched for the one we wanted to adopt.  We let Hadley pick him out, but I know I did my fair ...

A Backpacking Trip to Remember

 

With five children, it can often be very difficult to get individual one-on-one time with the kids.  We have sporadically tried “stay-up-nights,” where one child gets to stay up a bit later than everyone else to have dessert, play something, and talk a bit with both of ...

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 ...

Receiving Correction

My husband, Luke, recently gave a sermon on the topic of receiving correction (which I highly recommend listening to HERE if you want to learn more).  The conversations we had as he prepared to share with our church body along with some recent personal experiences have served to illuminate ...

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 ...
