I want to tell you a little story. Once there was a skinny girl in college. She was going to school to be a paralegal. She loved the thought of working in a law office. Legal research and writing was her absolute favorite class. Reading about cases and writing contracts and memoranda? Love, Loved it!… Continue reading A Little Story
Does this describe how you feel right now, too? I said this to a group of friends a while back about a particular subject, and one of them answered back with, “Amen, Corri! That’s how I feel about everything right now! I used to tell God I needed Him to write the answers He’s giving… Continue reading Bad Signal?
On the phone with a friend a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about not having as productive a day as we had planned. So I called him a slacker. He came back with, “Yeah, we don’t get a Sabbath.” And that got my brain to going. We think we have to constantly be… Continue reading A Day of Rest
We are coming off of a most awesome weekend. We went with a group from church to Gatlinburg for Winterfest, a convention for Christian youth they have every year. We went up after school on Thursday afternoon, to make it just in time to unload and crash into bed. To set the scene: Jeremy had… Continue reading Shipwrecked
It has been a wacky day, but I couldn’t let it go by without talking about this dude right here. Today is Tyler’s sixteenth birthday. I’m not really sure how that happened, because yesterday he looked like this: But now he’s bigger than his moma. But still not too big for daddy to pick up.… Continue reading Sweet Sixteen
Right after Jeremy and I got married, we had our first baby. His name was Rex, and he was a black lab. I absolutely loved that dog. We had him until I was pregnant with Troy. He got attacked by another dog in the neighborhood and had to be put down. I was torn to… Continue reading Ruff Day
Let me tell you about my valentine. This man has my heart. If I could have put together the perfect man for myself, what I imagined could never have come close to what I have in him. God knew that we needed each other, and I am so glad He made our paths cross 20… Continue reading My Valentine
One of the things we do during our Sunday service is before the Lord’s supper, there is a slide presented with a scripture and a question for thought. Today’s scripture was Hebrews 1:3 & 8. The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God…But to the Son He says, “Your throne,… Continue reading Come – Join My Table
When God created man He knew Just what man was going to do – Make bad decisions every day And from the path led by God stray. No one’s perfect, there’s no doubt We just can’t seem to figure out How to act the way God said, Control our bodies, hearts, and heads. To buy… Continue reading Growing In Grace
My son and I are fans of the MCU. We love us a good superhero movie. I don’t think there is a character I don’t like, but one of my absolute favorites is Tony Stark. (Unironically, my favorite DC hero is Batman. Arrogant business owners whose only superpowers are their money and intelligence. Does that… Continue reading “I’m Not Tony Stark.”
What a day. I spent the majority of the day at the Lean Into Jesus Ministries ladies’ conference with a few friends. (And a whole room full of ladies on fire for God.) And my soul has been refreshed. This year, the theme was “More”. Several ladies spoke about what “more” meant to them. Giving… Continue reading “More”
Are you happy and carefree 100% of the time? Of course you are. We completely ignore and don’t worry about, or even better are oblivious to, the negative things in life. We have the Spirit of God within us, so we are just bubbling joy everywhere, right? (If you have figured this out, please send… Continue reading Flaws and All
At our ladies’ retreat, I included an acrostic in the material, showing ways we are priceless. Then we encouraged everyone to come up with acrostics describing themselves. I wanted to share both the one I gave them, and the one I came up with for myself. What words would you use to describe yourself? Corri… Continue reading I’m Priceless
Maybe there is a lot going on in your life. Maybe there is just something in particular you’ve been struggling with. Maybe you feel like you are struggling with everything. Yes, I’m speaking to myself, as usual. I found myself having a morning where I was just overwhelmed. Trying to get the kids to get… Continue reading Some Days, You Just Feel Weary.
I want my roots to be in Jesus. To be full of Him and to follow His footsteps. To follow His path and grow in Him and to be more like Him. I want my roots to be so deep in Him, so tangled in Him, that the fruit I bear can’t help but show… Continue reading Where I’m Rooted
