9 Thoughts from 4 Weeks on Crutches

You never realize how active you are until someone tells you to stay put. Here’s a largely unedited list of things I’ve been thinking about from my lovely vantage point of the couch in my living room.

Poem: Momentum Without Hype

By Lydia Sellers >>> I want momentum without hype Joy without strife Godly wisdom without pride Love without lust Peace without passivity Fulfillment in true identity I want purpose not pushiness Completeness not weakness Balance.

Back to blogging

By Tiffany Deluccia Six weeks. How much life can change in six weeks. God is as good as ever, and I am much refreshed. Thanks for giving me a break. I believe Jesus was our model when he would regularly withdraw to seek the Father’s heart. That’s what April and this first half of May…

Taking a break!

I’m taking a break from writing, and I wanted to give you a heads up. We’ve had a lot going on for the last few months and some major changes to digest. So, TJ and I are taking some time away from everything to pray, recharge and make some difficult decisions. Jesus modeled for us an…

Help fight sex trafficking – Race to Rescue

By Tiffany Deluccia Jesus said in Luke 4 that He came to set the captives free and to set at liberty those who are oppressed. If freeing the oppressed was close to His heart, we must make it close to ours. The Race to Rescue 5K is a community effort in Greenville, SC to raise awareness of…

Poem: Seeing Through Dust

Seeing Through Dust By Lydia Sellers Our value is determined by what’s inside our hearts. We’re not physical attributes, political attitudes, or potential aptitudes. Categories, categories, stereotypes. Who are we? Are we not human? Or are we to decease as projects of the era? When will compassion no longer be a slogan? Will we see…

Review: Speak Love by Annie Downs

By Tiffany Deluccia Zondervan sent me a copy of Annie Downs’ new book Speak Love to review for you lovely friends. The thesis is simple: Make your words matter. They can speak death to those around you (and we all know our words have done that), or they can be life-giving. Annie is funny, and…
