Is it possible that good things can come out of our broken dreams? What does the Bible say about trials and unanswered prayers – and how do we learn to find joy again when God doesn't fix it?
We'll be studying the Scriptures and finding answers to these tough questions in the FREE online Bible study When God Doesn't Fix It with Laura Story and @christiansply starting the week of June 4th! Sign up and join us this summer! Link on Facebook page!
I love John Piper's commentary on Phil 1:6: " Phil. 1:6 is one of the greatest and most often quoted promises in the Bible. And well it should be. The fact that God is at work in his people, changing the thought patterns and preference of our sinful nature, so that we love what He loves, retooling the grooves in our brain, knitting together the complex strands of our emotional wounds with infinitely greater skill than the world's foremost micro-surgeon--there's no greater promise than this."
Sweet Ben and his chest cold.
Thank you for the kind words about Laura's book "When God Doesn't Fix It"! @feat.bigjon ! -team laura
After three days of potty training, many, many pairs of batman and lightning mqueen undies and a lot of carpet cleaner, it warms my heart to see these two snuggling together.... and finally asleep :)
My cookie monsters.
Grateful to spend Mother's Day with this crazy crew. I am very blessed to have both of these wonderful ladies in my life!
Home from our amazing trip to Guatemala. My heart is still overflowing with gratitude to @compassion for inviting us, but even more so to our Heavenly Father, for allowing us the privilege of being part of taking care of his children. "For God so loved the WORLD..." Jn 3:16
Words can't express the joy I felt watching these two today, their giggles penetrating any language barrier. So thankful to @compassion for the opportunity to come alongside Maria and her family in this unique and personal way. I believe both of these girls' lives will be changed forever.
Full day today, visiting a new friend named Sylvia. She and Josie colored, did some chores together and painted each other's fingernails. It was life eye opening to experience a day in the life of this little girl. @compassion
Ready for another adventure!
Waking up to the sound of birds and car horns, excited about day 2 in Guatemala with @compassion . It's hard to put into words the joy I felt yesterday, visiting a school of 250 precious children, taking much needed food and supplies to one room homes with dirt floors... and seeing Josie begin to understand what mommy and daddy mean when we talk about stewardship and the great responsibility God has blessed us with, to show his love to every child bearing his image. Praying for strength and safety for another big day!
So thankful to celebrate thirteen years of marriage to this guy- great husband, wonderful father and best friend.
Hoping on a plane with my sidekick Josie, heading to Guatemala for the next 4 days with @compassion . Prayers appreciated!
I love knowing that no matter how much how I flail, no matter how much I doubt, His grip on my life never loosens. He holds my soul just as tight as the first day He redeemed me. Goodness and mercy will “hunt me down” all the days of my life. Praise be to God!
Thankful to be a part tonight of what God is doing in the Auburn, AL community through East Alabama Medical Center. One of my personal highlights was meeting Belinda who is celebrating 11 years cancer free! #praisethelord
Thankful for friends to play music with ... and assemble tricycles together.
What a privilege to be part of @passion4moms conference in DC this weekend!
"It doesn't matter what your faith looks like; it matters what it is." @bobgoff I love this guy, how he loves Jesus... and how he loves my kiddos.
Connected in ATL on my way to D.C... and switched twins.
My little Sherpa
Headed to Grand Rapids with my buddy Griff!
Her expression... priceless.
When it feels like Hope cannot be found, Grace abounds.
Pic from this weekend. Are we having fun yet?
Here's a list of where I'll be in the coming months and weeks. Keep us in your prayers as we travel and come see us if there's an event in your area!
