This is a fictional account of the story of Rahab of the Bible. It is well-imagined and does stick to the correct facts laid out in Scripture, though they are few. The story takes greater depth and becomes heart-changing in the hands of one of my favorite authors, Tessa Afshar.
Many of us our familiar with this prayer from Matthew 6:9-13 which says, 9 Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven,hallowed be your name.[a]10 Your kingdom come,your will be done,[b] on earth as it is in heaven.11 Give us this day our daily bread,[c]12 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil."[d]Matthew… Continue reading God, our Father in Heaven
I was sharing this with my husband. So much is going on within my heart and mind right now. I think it's a renaissance of me. God showing me the very heart of who He created me to be. And giving me the way forward to actually voice what has been stuffed inside for many,… Continue reading Renaissance
The most beautiful view on my most recent trip during covid-19. Hi friends! I've started to get a reputation for getting extremely good deals on flights, as well as flying for free.

I'm usually able to stay in a bright place and find the joy, but doing that has been like pulling… Continue reading When it Just Keeps being Hard

As the dream come true unfolds, the… Continue reading The Happy Sacrifices of a Mama
