Dear You Who Needs to Restore

Dear You Who Needs to Restore

Life doesn't always go the way we plan, does it? Or should I say, life never seems to go the way we plan it. You could have made plans to restore this summer - to go on a vacation with your family or a fun getaway weekend with friends.  To read certain books or to spend a certain amount of time in prayer.  To connect in a special way with people you don't normally see. But then life happens.  Someone gets sick.  You get sick.  Someone needs you unexpectedly.  A work project takes longer than it was supposed to.  A relationship flares that...

When Life Doesn’t Go According to Plan

When Life Doesn’t Go According to Plan

I had a plan. My plan looked something like this: I was going to send all four of my girls to camp the exact same week so that I could be at home by myself for one whole week. I've been looking forward to this plan for months. I've been dreaming about it in my really tired moments and planning for it in my upbeat moments. I was going to lay on my couch with my robe on in the middle of the day and watch Netflix, just because I could. I was going to deep dive into my next big writing project and write the first few chapters. I was going to go...

How to Restore: Rest

How to Restore: Rest

As funny as it sounds, to have a restorative summer requires some work. It requires me to take a few moments to think through what gives me rest, and what doesn't. I've learned the hard way that true rest isn't just about abandoning routine, it's about embracing a new one, one that involves the elements of solitude, rest, and work. Last week, we walked about solitude - time alone with God. (Click here to listen to last week's video.) Join me this week as I talk about rest - what does restorative rest look like and how can we incorporate it...

How to Restore: Solitude

The start of each summer feels like an invitation to me to restore – an invitation to come and rest so that I can have enough in my tank to last through the remainder of the year. But I’ve learned that rest isn’t just about sleeping in or going on vacation.  It isn’t about abandoning routine; it’s about embracing a new routine, one that invites true rest.  This routine involves three very different but important elements: SolitudeRestWork A summer without solitude develops no intimacy with God.  A summer without rest develops...

Thankful for Freedom

Thankful for Freedom

If you live long enough, you realize freedom is never free. It's something we pause to remember as a nation on Memorial Day. We remember the many men and women who have laid down their lives so that we, our family, our neighbors, our friends, our nation, can be free, and it is a debt we can never repay. For a father and a grandfather who were both willing to give seasons of their lives for the service and protection of our country to safeguard our freedoms, I am so thankful. My handsome dad graduated from the United States Naval Academy in...
