September 20 – Party: I Want To Rock And Roll All Night And …

2:263 – Party: I Want To Rock And Roll All Night And … #faithbites #faithjourney #RedLetterChallenge Party If you are like me, you are now singing the Kiss Song! It’s upbeat and most of us know it. What’s funny to me, is I always say work hard and play hard. Part of that is having fun. Life is a highway, […]

September 19 – Fasting Isn’t For Others

September 19 – Fasting Isn’t For Others

2:262 – Fasting Isn’t For Others #faithbites #faithjourney #redletterchallenge fasting Have you ever fasted? I know I have. Until today, I didn’t realize that fasting could be something more than just food or the true purpose. Fasting isn’t so others no you are sacrificing. You also can’t “fast” from something that isn’t truly important or meaningful. I abstained from coffee […]

September 16 – The Book Is Missing. Should I stop?

2:260 – The Book Is Missing. Should I stop? #faithbites #faithjourney #redletterchallenge missing Like clockwork, tonight I sat down to read Day 8 of the Red Letter Challenge. But when I went for the book, it was gone. I can’t find it in our bedroom, office, living room, bathroom (you never know), and it’s just gone. At first, I thought […]

September 7 – Just Listen

September 7 – Just Listen

2:250 – Just Listen #faithbites #faithjourney listen Nothing profound in this #faithbite. No dramatic realizations or crazy experiences. Just the need to listen to each other. People speak on words, action, inaction, and emotion. Just listen. Today, during a couple of political debates, I had nothing to add. I was glad for the respectful tone, but didn’t have the facts […]

September 6 – Tiana’s Dad

2:249 – Tiana’s Dad #faithbites #faithjourney Tiana’s We are big Disney fans in our house. We love “The Princess Frog” or as everyone says Tiana’s movie. Great music, a great independent woman, and a great villian. In the movie we see Tiana’s Dad twice. Once when she is little and he is hardworking, poor, loving, and never lets anything get […]

2:248 – For The Person Listening In #faithbites #faithjourney Listening Have you ever gotten into a debate and someone tells you it’s not worth it because you will never change the person’s mind? It happens to me all the time, especially on social media. Then someone gave me the brilliant advice that while you may not change the mind of […]

September 4 – W.W.J.D?

2:247- W.W.J.D? #faithbites #faithjourney W.W.J.D W.W.J.D? What would Jesus do? I often find myself doing things I don’t want to from gossiping to being angry fo being prideful. Then I see people who claim to be Christian doing the most unChristian-like things. But what would Jesus do? Imagine if we asked this question before we took the actions we did? […]

September 3 – Are You A Gossip?

2:246 – Are You A Gossip? #faithbites #faithjourney Gossip Do you gossip about others? Lately, I have been doing more and more listening and less talking. I have seen people sharing stories about each other that may or may not be true. Spending time trying to out words in people’s mouths, thoughts to their actions, all while not even being […]
