I start my mornings lately with a devotional about thankfulness and gratitude. It helps me start the day with a grateful heart; a posture I need t...

    These days my yard has an overabundance of leaves. Timely and expected, yet it still amazes me to see them continuing to fall day after day. My fa...

    Antique stores are gold mines filled with treasure just waiting to be found. Redemptive mother churches of old stuff. The more glorious aisles of booths, the more piles of stuff, the better! Chances are if I’m not drawing or working or wearing one of my many business hats, I’m SO down for going there. I’ll get my keys and my tennis shoes, let’s go! Antique stores are my favorite place to spend an afternoon when I’m in need of inspiration, a history lesson, or just soul space.

    Good morning, it’s God’s morning! How do you start your day? The first thing I do before getting out of bed is I look at the Bible verse of the day on my phone. Yes, even before social media and messages. I’ve intentionally made it a habit over the past few years and it’s a game CHANGER. I challenge you! It’s not any kind of fancy Bible study or trendy app. But I like it that way. I crave the simplicity this verse of the day brings. 


    Good morning, it’s God’s morning! I’ve been out of town for a tour de Tennessee the past few days, so it’s good to be home and take a deep breath. ...

    Good morning, friends – Or should I say afternoon…ha! It’s one of those days when there are NOT enough hours in the morning. But I’m glad you are here all the same! I came across these verses yesterday. It never ceases to amaze me how God’s Word speaks life into our every day – exactly when we need it. These words from Philippians brought so much encouragement to me, and I wanted to pass them along to you.

    Good Morning Glory! Happy Wednesday. This morning I want to share these verses from Mark 4. The subtitle in my Bible calls the passage, “Jesus Calms the Storm.” 35 As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” 36 So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). 37 But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. 


    Good Morning Glory! The past few weeks I have been thinking a lot about kindness. I recently started teaching kids Sunday School at my church. The lesson I just taught was about King David’s kindness to Jonathan and his son, Mephilboseth. (Try pronouncing Mephilboseth to a bunch of 1st and 2nd graders…ha). The Bible story came from 2 Samuel 9.


    I have always been an early morning gal – I love mornings & the new possibility each day brings. My day starts with scripture & coffee, & this morning I thought to myself…what if I could share that time with a friend like you, too? So here’s my first Morning Glory: a few verses, some words, & a prayer from times passed to remind us that God is the same through every generation. Every morning we can rise & shine & give God the glory because He makes us new each day.
