January 19 – That Didn’t Work. Let’s Order Pizza

2:19 – That Didn’t Work. Let’s Order Pizza #faithbites #faithjourney pizza I like to cook. My family loves when I cook and try new things. I’m always a little nervous as I don’t want to waste the money on the ingredients or make something that people don’t like. Tonight, I tried a new skillet cheese bread loaf and garlic brown […]

January 14 – My Day Sucks More Than Yours

2:14 – My Day Sucks More Than Yours #faithbites #faithjourney sucks Today was not a good day.

January 5 – Challenge Complete. Next!

2:5 – Challenge Complete. Next! #faithbites #faithjourney Challenge Today marks a big day for me. In November of 2017, a friend of mine who shared scripture every day said he was leaving Facebook.

January 3 – Be a Becky

2:3 – Be a Becky #faithbites #faithjourney Becky Today a church friend of mine passed away. It was unexpected and I hope that everyone keeps her and her family in their prayers.

December 22 – Memorization or Internalization

356 – Memorization or Internalization #faithbites #faithjourney internalization One of the weekly assignments my eldest has is to memorize scripture. She studies it, recites it, and gets a sticker for it. I’ve asked her if she remembers it a week or two later and she doesn’t. She may have the concept on some but not the word. No internalization of […]

355 – The Longest Night or A New Season? #faithbites #faithjourney season December 21 is the first day of Winter. A new season of cold, snow, Christmas, New Year, and a time to reflect on what is came and what is next. For me though, I also look at it as the longest night of the year. I’ve always been […]

December 20 – Trust But Verify (Part II)

354 – Trust But Verify (Part II) #faithbites #faithjourney Verify You might remember that back in September I wrote a #faithbite entitled Trust But Verify. That message was about not bearing false witness and listening to find the truth when someone is accused of something. Today, I use the same title but for a different type of verification. Understanding what […]

In medical school, there is a testing scenario where you are evaluated on your clinical skills. Basically you go to a room, read a scenario, go in and interact […]
