Why God’s Healing Is More Amazing Than You May Have Realized

If someone gave you a million dollars, what would you do with it? I posed this question to several friends and family members, and their answers included things like “pay off all my bills” (actually, this one was the one most often mentioned), donate to worthy organizations, buy a new car, take a vacation, and […]

What It Takes to Be a Good Mom

In high school and college, I auditioned for and was accepted into various choirs. I have a good voice, though there are plenty of people whose voices are better than mine. But one area in which I excel is my ability to hear when a singer is on pitch. Which, of course, means that I […]

Leaving It All on the Field

By now, if you live in North America, you’ve probably heard that the Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series. If you read last week’s devotion, you know how happy this makes me. What you may not know is how I reacted to their win (after screaming with joy in a way that went beyond […]

How Parenting is Like a Roller Coaster, and How God Can Help You Through It

(Guest post dictated by Kenny Breedlove, age 11.) Hey, Mom, I have an idea for your devotional. You could write about how parenting is like a roller coaster. It has ups and downs, and it sometimes has fast and slow moments. Like it’s fast when kids grow up too fast. It’s slow when you have […]

When You Need to Do Your Part

In this story, I’m going to call them Child A and Child B, because I don’t want to embarrass Child A. But I want to share the story with you (paraphrased, mind you) because I have the sneaking suspicion that, if you have any school-age children, a scenario like this just may have played itself […]

When You Need Practice

I didn’t think picking up Cheerios was such a big deal. Apparently, it was, at least to Timmy, who didn’t want to pick up the bag of Cheerios he’d dragged into his room for use with his Cheerios book. “Please pick up the Cheerios and put them away,” I said. “Aagghh!” Timmy yelled. “I’m mad! […]

Waffles and Clowns

My son Timmy’s 4th birthday is fast approaching, and he can’t wait. If I had a dollar for every time he’s asked, “Is it my birthday yet?” I’d have a lot of money. Recently, my daughter Jessica turned 8, and Timmy was upset. “Why isn’t it my birthday yet?” he asked. Then, yesterday, when I […]

When God Won’t Give You What You Want

“Mommy, can I have a cookie?” Timmy asked. “No,” I said, “we’re going to eat dinner soon.” “But I want a cookie!” “Sorry. It’s almost time for dinner.” “But I LIKE cookies.” “After dinner.” By this point, Timmy was getting distressed. “But how can I eat a cookie if you won’t LET me?” he begged. […]

What Do You See?

Look at the picture accompanying this devotional (it’s over to the right). Go ahead, look at it. What do you see in the foreground? The other day, as I was walking into the kitchen, Lindsey met me as she was coming in from the back yard. Beaming, she held out a fistful of grass and […]

When One of These Things is Not Like the Other

Did you watch Sesame Street as a child? I did. I loved it. One of my favorite segments was the “One of These Things” game. They would show a square evenly divided into four smaller squares. Then, they would add one item to each square, three of which were similar, and one of which was […]
