Being Lazy Is Actually Good For You

Being lazy is good for you. Did that get your attention? Actually, I’m really talking about idleness and there’s a big difference between the two.

How God Uses our Seasons of Pain

How God Uses our Seasons of Pain

The holiday season is a difficult time for many to celebrate. If that is you, this post is for you today. I remember holidays when I found it painful to look at social media and see all the festive activities and view all the picture-perfect family photos, when in my heart I found it difficult to celebrate. I want to speak to you right now and let you know that I understand. But more importantly, I want to assure you that God sees you, God is with you, God feels your heartache and God uses our seasons of pain.

God’s Pattern of Fun

Even though life may not be going according to our plans, God desires for us to be joyful in the midst of the shocks and hurts. Joy is not surface deep, but soul deep.

It’s Time for a Social Media Fast

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Wendy Speake about all things related to a Social Media Fast on a recent episode of Your Hope-Filled Perspective podcast. She shares more about what she’s noticed with us here (warning…you just might feel a tad convicted like I was after reading her experience ;-)).

We all seem to be looking down these days. I wonder if that’s why many of us feel down too. We perpetually bow our heads, but not in prayer. While we might believe prayer works, we don’t have the time to get on our knees because we’re on our phones. Checking in online, responding to a text, watching a YouTube video—then looking up just in time to snap a picture of the sunset. As we post it to social media, we realize our neck aches and that we forgot to switch out the laundry.

We need a break. A holy hiatus. A social media sabbatical.
