Delicious Knowledge

I keep turning her words around, savoring their truth:
“What is good is not just a matter of what we know but *how* we live it out…
Habits and rituals reflect and cement what we worship;
what we worship determines the purpose of our lives.”

– what a vision of love! –

oh to love long and unwavering like this!

oh my, oh my! dare you not to grin wide & laugh loud on this one. PURE JOY!

You’re Invited!

Being joyful isn’t what makes you grateful. Being grateful is what makes you joyful.

We’re thrilled to embark on the One Thousand Gifts Challenge and warmly invite you to join us!

We’re committing to journaling daily gifts from God during the three weeks leading up to Thanksgiving — because? No amount of regret changes the past. No amount of anxiety changes the future. Any amount of grateful joy changes the present.

When you join, you’ll receive a bundle of FREE resources to help you along the way:

  • Journaling pages to record your gifts in one place
  • Weekly devotions to your inbox to help encourage and cheer you on during the challenge
  • Bonus: A special calendar to help you commit to praying for a specific person that you’re grateful for each day of the challenge. Just write a different name down for each day and cover them in prayers of gratitude and blessing!

just take a moment to pause and enjoy life’s beauty –

a beautiful message from our very own intern –
and what powerful words on thanksgiving & God always at work in the midst of hard things

creating, painting, decorating – so many beautiful ways to use the gifts God’s given

Pomegranate might just be some of the prettiest fruit on God’s earth!
Maybe try one or two of these festive, beautiful recipes with them?

May we never tire of God’s beauty and majesty found all throughout the earth
glory, glory, glory

For every person who is walking a hard way and looking for a way through, WayMaker is your sign.

Your sign that there is hope, that there are miracles, and that everything you are trying to find a way to, is actually coming to meet you in ways far more fulfilling than you ever imagined.

“Come magnify the Lord with Me,
And lift our faces up to majesty
Come magnify the Lord with Me

Well, hello NOVEMBER!
“Whatever you do, do everything…*giving thanks*” Col. 3:17
God’s will is for us to give thanks *in all things*…
because this is how God knows we can live through *anything*

All the research concludes that if you write down just 3 things
you’re grateful for every day, you increase your happiness by *25%*!
Who doesn’t want *that*?!

And giving thanks in all things is a God-command for our *joy*.
Let’s do it!

Take the Joy Dare (3 prompts a day to find 3 gifts) –
