If you watch anything in the next couple of weeks, make it this movie Minari. If you care about being part of another, more hopeful narrative, Minari is a movie for our times.

What my friend, Helen Lee, writes here is profound and needful and I’ve been sitting long with her wisdom.

Our family is leaning into “The Wonderful, Wonderful Healing Power of Minari.”


Do you struggle to know what to say to God in prayer? A great way to guide your prayers is by including God’s Word. Meditate on the truths and promises of Scripture and then turn them into prayers. God loves when you speak His language!

profoundly said…one to read again and again:

Maybe you need this reminder today too: It’s okay to not have all the answers. It’s okay to feel sad. It’s okay to cry. God never said we’d have a pain free life, He actually gave us a heads up that we’ll all face hard times. His story never ends there, though. He is a restorer at heart and He specializes in redemption. ⁣

on repeat this week: When We Fall Apart


[ Print’s FREE here: ]

Early in the morning, first thing, there’s this turning on of a lamp and this sacred encounter with God:

Today, let’s pine after the heart of God: 

Want the One who wants you more than anyone else.

I have found this true, especially at the bottom of all kinds of unspoken broken: God is never an obligation, but always worthy of anticipation. Time with God isn’t an action on some to-do list but an act of Love with Someone. 

God isn’t a duty when you are attracted to His beauty.

I can not help it, because this has been my story: 
Fall in love with the One who erases all of your falls. 
Pine after the One who hung on a tree for you,
the only One who ever loved you to death and back to the realest life. 

[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Dare to fully live!

That’s all for this weekend, friends.

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

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

Share Whatever Is Good.
