Day 7 of 31 Days of Seeing Jesus in Your Daily Life: Oh, To (Not) Be Young Again!

Yesterday morning my poor Piper was losing her mind! A little background: Our yard has a variety of huge mature trees, including a lot of burr oaks.

The sun ran its fingers through the leaves of my favorite maple tree as I was walked up from my son’s bus stop yesterday morning. The beauty took my breath away.

Instead, I… Continue reading Day 5 of 31 Days of Seeing Jesus In Your Daily Life: Sun-soaked Radiance

Day 4 of 31 Days of Seeing Jesus In Your Daily Life: Getting Rid Of The Ick

Yesterday I decided to clean my office while my boys got ready for school—evidence that miracles still happen. In the last few weeks, I’ve taken to working on the kitchen island because I needed a change of scenery—at least that’s what I’ve been telling myself.

Day 2 of 31 Days Of Seeing Jesus in Your Daily Life: The Parable of the Apple Tree

In Minnesota, Fall is the season to transition from boating, camping, and catching fireflies to snowmobiling, ice fishing, and catching snowflakes. It’s one of my favorite seasons because it’s a total package: Football, quilts, and apple cider; campfires, colorful leaves, and cooler temperatures; layered outfits, scarves, and cute boots. But it wasn’t until I met… Continue reading Day 2 of 31 Days Of Seeing Jesus in Your Daily Life: The Parable of the Apple Tree
