The Truth

Beth and I are continuing our look at love. What does it mean to rejoice in the truth? I can tell you what it means to me where I’m at in life right now. I cling to God’s promises – because they are truth. The truth is truth no matter how I feel. It remains…

I Told Ya So

I didn’t think I was the gloating type. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy hitting my husband with an “I told ya so” when appropriate. Not exactly kind or loving, huh? Gloating is what Beth & I are looking at today. At almost 19 years of marriage, I’m guessing I’ve said…

My List

I think it’s safe to say that most of us have a list of people we wouldn’t want to run into at the grocery store. Today, Beth and I are talking about having a “record of wrongs” as we continue our study of love in 1 Corinthians 13. I don’t consider myself a grudge-holder. But…

Irritable is the New Black

I’m unsure of when it happened. But I’ve been super grumpy lately. Everything kind of annoys me. And when I feel that way, I tend to retreat because I don’t want to subject others to my poor attitude. Maybe it’s sleep deprivation. Maybe it’s the demands of wifedom & Motherhood. I wear irritable like a…

What’s In It For Me?

Beth and I are continuing our look at 1 Corinthians 13. Today we’re talking about what it means to be self seeking. I’m so tired and worn out as I write this. Sunday’s have become the hardest day of my week, and thus I’ve dubbed them the new Monday. My kids gave me a run for…

Don’t Be A Jerk

Beth & I are continuing our love series in 1 Corinthians 13. Today, we’re talking about how love is not rude. To put it simply: don’t be a jerk. Don’t be the kind of person who constantly corrects others, needs to be right or knows everything. You can be right – or you can have…

Arrogance vs Confidence

Beth & I are looking at arrogance today in the love chapter, 1 Corinthians 13. I used to believe confidence was a form of arrogance. That somehow knowing who you are in Christ and walking in that truth makes you stuck up. I couldn’t be more wrong. It is actually the opposite. There’s a humility…

Boastest the Mostest

Beth and I are continuing our look at 1 Corinthians 13. Today, we’re talking about boasting. In this golden age of technology, where every hiccup and fart is documented on social media, there’s an onslaught of “humble bragging”.  It seems like everyone is doing something cool. Living the good life. The best restaurants, concerts, vacations,…

Me vs The Green Eyed Monster

When I say “green eyed monster”, I’m not referring to my husband. Im speaking, of course, about jealousy.  Beth and I are continuing our look at love in 1 Corinthians 13; what it is and what it is not. And – it is not jealous; it does not envy.  I’ve been debating what to write here…

Kindness is the Cure

Kindness is like that perfect black dress; it never goes out of style. It costs nothing to be kind, yet means the world to the recipient.  Beth and I are looking at 1 Corinthians 13:4b love is kind. When was the last time you saw a kind political debate over social media?  These are dark times…

Patience & Progress

Beth and I are looking at the love chapter in 1 Corinthians 13. Today we are looking at patience or as I like to call it – NOBODY’S strong suit!  My first month working in education, I’ve decided teachers and parents of small children are among the most patient of people.  When your love for…

Love Is All You Need

Yay! New series ahead. Beth & I are talking about the traits of love.  God gave Moses 10 Commandments. Guidelines that were simple, yet people messed that up. Then when Jesus showed up, He broke it down further and made it even simpler for us by breaking it down to love (love God & love…
