Praise Challenge – “Shout to God with joyful praise”

“Praise” has been a grounding word for me recently. The Lord spoke it over me back in September at a women’s conference. I went to a corner of the room and began praying and crying (that weekend I discovered that when I feel the presence of the Lord, I cry haha). I was praying about [...]

Lover like Israel – April 22, 2013

Part of the reason I love blogging is because the Lord gets to remind me of lessons He taught me years ago, that have now come full circle. I'm about to start reading Hosea with a few friends, and I'm in charge of leading the first two chapters. So I've been studying up. And in [...]
