Learning to Pivot in the Midst of Crisis


Faith

After 32 years of living, you would think I could recognize it by now, but I still struggle to see it when it’s happening. The invitation to pivot, to change directions and seek out a new path, is often born out of a sense of crisis. What feels like an ending is really a new […]

Handling Busyness Like A Christian


Life, Off The Blog

“If the devil can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy.” I’ve nodded my head in agreement with this statement more times than I can count. Yes, I know all too well the peril of a busy life, the kind that keeps you running at a breakneck pace and leaves you crabby and anxious. I have […]

The Key to Productivity in God’s Economy


Off The Blog

Seven months into parenthood, I knew something had to change. I had expected the diaper changes, the snotty noses, even the sleepless nights; but I had not anticipated the frustration, the fear, or the perpetual feeling of falling behind. I woke up one morning to my daughter babbling in her crib. As I laid there […]
