On the Stack at the Farm this Week:

Anything: The Prayer that Unlocked My God and My Soul, by Jennie Allen. 

“Somehow I thought most of my life following God was not supposed to be too costly. Following God is flat costly….
“Great people don’t do great things; God does great things through surrendered people.”

“Caught in this familiar haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie Allen and her husband Zac prayed a courageous prayer of abandonment that took them on an adventure God had written for them. “God, we will do anything. Anything.
Anything is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move us to stop chasing things that just make us feel happy and start living a life that matters. A life that is…Surrendered. Reckless. Courageous.
If we truly know a God worth giving anything for, everything changes.” One book, one prayer, to ignite your summer with.


The Better Life: Small Things You Can Do Right Where You Are, by Claire Diaz-Ortiz
“The Key to Big Change — is small change.” An easy, small book — to deeply inspire small & huge change. Paired with Jennie Allen’s Anything — and you’ve got fire in your bones for beautiful things!

Why Would God Choose Me

“…all of our lives should be lived in the constant amazement of this

okay, the kids and I could hardly believe this?


Post of the week from these parts here:

…so, if we’re all being honest here — we’re all fighting a hard battle — and sometimes you just really need someone to gently throw our a real life line — and you’ll take it:

something to hold on to when you’re tired & the world’s broke your heart a bit

a boy on a mission – what if we all did something like this?

something to really cheer about — life lessons learned on and off the field

when we base life on simply what we see — we miss the power of living.

Dear Little Lies that are keeping us up late:
Yes, you Lies that are telling us it’s not going to turn out okay,
that God won’t be enough, that this mountain ahead of us is too high, that we’re going to fail, mess up, blow it, lies that give us no rest — well, guess what, Little Lies?

The Truth is that God’s got us, that He’s bigger than any mountain, He can make a road through any ocean, He’s in us & with us & for us & He is enough, so we will always have & be enough — and His absolute perfect love for us kicks all you Little Lies & all you Lying Fears right to the curb.

So consider yourself busted, Little Lies & Lying Fears:
When His Love’s got a hold of you?
There isn’t a lie in the universe that can pull you apart.
Love has a hold of us — so you fear & the lies really don’t.
Love, The Free & Absolutely Safe Us.

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
