Jude’s Favorites at Age 5

 Song: Word crimes, Uptown Funk (censored), anything Peter, Bjorn, and John. Color: The Rainbow Trending words with Jude: "Cute," (e.g. "Daddy, I saw a bunny and it was soooo cute! and then the dogs chased her and she ran away, and I was like "awhhhhh..." or "This room is so cute!")

A beautiful mess

Beauty in the mess. This was my first attempt at encaustic art and it was fun (if a bit sloppy and poorly executed). I was inspired by James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.” Over the past 7 years in home groups I’ve […]

In our poverty of mind and heart
