Today, Kristen and I have recorded a podcast for you that offers a little plan for pacing yourself for this holiday season--a way to put a plan in action so that you can manage the weeks ahead with grace.
I love advent. It prepares me every year to remember how amazingly inspiring His coming is. Just the picture of a tiny infant, being celebrated by angels, a young mother and father caught up in the miracle of a new birth warms my heart to the depths
We all long to be known, loved for who we are and validated as people of worth. This kind of deep friendship is the essence of discipleship. Friendship forges pathways from one soul to another.
We are made for relationship. God created us to love, communicate, enjoy companionship, to celebrate life in community and to feel that we have a place to belong.
Influence comes from investing in real friendship, making time to look at one another face to face, sharing moments, listening to hearts.
"It is on my heart to renew your heart."
I hope you will join me as we start a new journey with God in 2017.
Walking in the light doesn't mean getting all of our desires met or having a perfect life. Walking in His light means that we will look for his light, seek the answers to life from His perspective and to enter into His design and purposes.
Ultimately, the heart of a leader is to serve generously as Jesus himself modeled for us through all the moments of His life.
Picturing our home as a place that remembers all the great life from eras gone by and that captures its beauty, has been one of our goals, that has given us hours and years of collecting and crafting and nurturing over the years.
If we were made for love, and if love is the foundational need in the deep places of our hearts, then knowing that our children have this need, should shape how we seek to influence them.
