I think many people have a tendency to stop trying when they get overwhelmed. It’s easier sometimes to do nothing at all, than to tackle a big project. Or sometimes we choose to avoid what overwhelms us by filling our time with other things. I frequently coach my children through huge piles of laundry, scattered… Continue reading I am Overwhelmed
Our final day of the challenge. In the video, let’s talk about how these different approaches to asking God what we should do each day can help us get in the habit of doing so!
In today’s video we talk about asking God to show us what we should surrender today.
Today in the video I talk about asking God what He would have us see today.
In today’s video I discuss why we should be asking God who and how we should serve each day!
Today in the video we focus on giving God the glory in everything we do. Let’s ask Him to show us how He would be glorified through our lives today.
In the video, I explain day 2 of this challenge: asking God to direct our prayers. When we ask God, “What would you have me pray today?”, we allow ourselves to see our prayer requests in a different light. We also open ourselves up to divine interruptions and new prayer requests.
In the video I explain why I want to embark on a 7 day challenge of asking God each day what He would have me do. Each day I will explore that concept from a slightly different angle—hoping to develop practical habits to consider God’s will in all of my decision-making. Come along with me!

She said she was “OK” and… Continue reading Not Knowing What to Say
Last September my family and I took a trip to Colorado for my brother’s wedding. It was a big, long, and expensive (for us!) trip. Earlier in the year, I put money aside from our tax return in order to pay for the trip. However, while we were out there, I couldn’t help but get… Continue reading He Has Already Provided
Life is weird right now, isn’t it?! Many of our routines have been upended and we are being forced to adapt to new habits. And just as we are suddenly spending less time with certain people, we are forced to spend more time with others!
