4 Ways Ministry Kills

There is a line in one of my favorite movies I often quote. “You’re killin’ me, Smalls!” If you haven’t watched Sandlot, I recommend it. This phrase comes in handy. Sometimes we say or feel this because we are frustrated when others don’t understand us. However, many times ministry literally is killing us.

48-Hour Life Plan

Remember when you were a kid and people asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Now you’re an adult, and there are days you still wonder about that, right?

You Need to Love Me More

I love coffee in the morning – the smell, the warm mug in my hands, the taste. It starts my morning out well. I also love the smell of rain. It fills the air and reminds me of my childhood when I would play outside in the rain. I love my husband and my family. Have I told you about my grandsons? I love it when Rye and Roman see me and start yelling, “Gigi, Gigi! I missed you.” Bear hugs and kisses follow. It just melts my heart. I could go on and on.

Yes, there were many other wonderful dishes served but I always found myself seated where the large Anchor Hocking mixing bowl of mashed potatoes was setting. The gravy was also nearby and the purpose of the turkey, at least for me, was to make the gravy to go on the mashed potatoes.

Faith and Giving

The essence of faith is clearly defined for us in Hebrews 11 where it says, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see,” (NIV).
