Happy, happy, happy weekend!
…because sometimes we have to whisper to each of us just hanging in there who need to hear it…when we’re tempted to fill with despair, Hope whispers that God will fulfill His promises. And when you know God is trustworthy — you know today is worthy of Hope. Come along with us here because who doesn’t need a bit more hope-filled good news?

Let yourself smile, be crazy inspired, laugh, love & really live the gift of this life
just a little bit more this weekend
Serving up only the Good Stuff for you & your people right here:

In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.

Psalms 95:4-5 (NIV)

Oh that we would run to the father the way this sheep runs to the arms of its neighbor!

What a joy it is when you are blessed to be a blessing.
This is a generous and heartfelt way to #BETHEGIFT

Yes! A celebration!
Think of the stories they share from day after day of their love in action for each other.

“…small acts of love can brighten the heart even in difficult situations.”

This moment?! This is precious, careful and kind love. How Sweet?!

Awwww! Listen to those adorable giggles!

God can turn our testimony into a mission. No matter the role God allows us to play in the lives of others, the goal is to bring him glory in everything we do. Thank God for the heart He has given this woman!

So this happened…

Utterly flattened by gratitude & awed by the surprising, laying-low ways of God 😭🌊

Thursday, deep in the middle of book launch week for WayMaker, (the day we all got the news that you moved our little book to #7 at Amazon) we were stunned & undone to find out in the sheep barn, lo & behold, 5 completely unexpected days early (!!) — two little wobbly lambs looking wide-eyed up at us! A St. Patrick’s Day surprise! Did you weigh on what you think we should name them?

As spring is upon us and life sprouts all around us, may we all bloom!

Even in the darkest moments, there is a way to share a glimpse of light.

Oh, how we need you, Lord!

This, this right here. Lighting the candles every night on this Lenten Wreath from The Keeping Company is my absolute favorite practice of this season, focusing & turning my heart …to keep company with Him.

Honestly? Every night I don’t want to blow out the candles… just want to linger in the light and the light of His Word… and gaze upon the way Jesus went the whole long way for us.

Sometimes kindness comes in the most simple ways and yet it means a great deal.

The thoughtfulness of this little one for his furry friend is love in action.

This moved me deeply. In the midst of heartache and war, an offering of song.

A mother’s hope, a stranger’s kindness, a child’s journey… so thankful and yet still praying.

The gift of family can come in so many ways.

Keep reminders of hope, notes of encouragement, photos or prayers
in these wooden hands, from The Keeping Company

Post of the week from these parts:

Feel Like You’re Too Much? This One’s for Us

Ever felt like you’re too much? That all your feelings and passions and hopes and dreams and heart — are kinda — too much?

This is the most tender, vulnerable story I’ve ever told — of how I almost blew up my marriage, our life…. us. Everything.

A story that, turns out?

I will break his heart in a thousand ways.

I will end up utterly shattered and broken by my own heart-twists and turns.

You aren’t too much to the people who choose to see all of you.

You do not have to shrink small. You do not ever have to make yourself disappear.

Your muchness may make you feel like not enough — but your muchness is your strength.

Your muchness isn’t a liability — your muchness is how you love muchhow you love large.

Every woman’s muchness isn’t a vice — every woman’s muchness is her very strength.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart—
and with all your soul—
and with all your very, very, much.

Love much with all your very muchness.

Your real muchness is your real strength.

Excerpt from WayMaker: Finding The Way To The Life You’ve Always Dreamed Of

quieted & undone & laid low…
& you are all SUCH people &…..thank you

It’s impossible for us to please God — unless we trust God with the impossible.

Can we just sincerely thank you for your grace with us this week as we released WayMaker into the world… Thank you for your real love, genuine kindness, carrying prayers — for being with us in this.

I’d love to invite you to join us on the way as we walk with The Way, no matter how the Way goes.

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.
