May 13 – It’s A Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Jesus

#133of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Before we get started, I wanted to wish all of the mothers out there a very happy Mother’s Day. I have had many women in my life who have been a mother figure. You have helped me through so many situations. I also want to thank the mother of my two children for the gift of life […]

May 12 – Pretty Isn’t Easy

#132of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Pretty Isn’t Easy. I was mowing the grass this morning and realized what a pain it is to mow around trees, bushes, garden beds, and other decorative yard features. At the same time, I had three kids chalking on the driveway putting their time and effort into art that will be washed away by this afternoon’s rain. […]

May 10 – My Plans or His Plans

#130of365 #Faithbites #FaithJourney My Plans or His Plans Today, like most days, I woke up, got showered, dressed, made lunches, dropped my daughter off at school and headed to work.

May 5 – What’s your Story?

#125of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Today’s lesson is about sharing. We are made to be in community with each other. As young children, one of the biggest lessons is sharing and the hardest lesson is usually sharing our toys. I see my kids all the time fighting about sharing toys. One child will pick up the other’s toy and start playing with […]

May The Fourth Be With You – Giving Generously

#124of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney #StarWarsDay Before we get started, I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Star Wars Day. And being Lutheran, I can’t help but when someone says “May the Force Be with You”, I have to say “And also with you”. Anywho, onto today’s lesson. Today’s lesson is about giving generously. We’ve talked about giving before, but I wanted […]
