Oh, hi there — let’s catch up.

By Tiffany Deluccia >>> Have you ever tried to start a conversation with a friend you haven’t seen in a while and struggled to know where to begin? That’s how I feel writing to you today. What a year it has been. You know bits and pieces; but the story has grown bigger and more…

When You Get Stuck in Transition

By Tiffany Deluccia >>> I somehow missed the month of September. It flew by. For the last several years at work, our theme song has been Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends.” iPhone launches and national campaigns and food & music festivals… A PR firm madhouse. And then I did wake up, and…

Burn to Memory Psalm 82:3

By Tiffany Deluccia >>> I was on vacation all last week (I’ll try to share some pics from Charleston soon), and the Lord impressed some strong things on my heart. First and foremost this: Rest in not vacation. Rest is in His presence. If we look to things other than Him for our rest, we…

Called to Action

By Lydia Sellers >>> I was abruptly interrupted while praying a couple weeks ago. As I poured emotional word vomit in “prayer” format, the Holy Spirit stopped me and suggested I ask if He had anything to say. As I quieted my soul and chose to listen, I heard Him say something a bit unexpected….

Reblog: Have We Made an Idol Out of Sexual Purity?

By Tiffany Deluccia >>> I recently read an article on purity in Relevant Magazine I thought you all would appreciate. This quote really jumped out at me: We spend so much time discussing physical purity, without challenging this generation to live a life that is so Spirit-filled, Christ-centered and God-breathed that purity is just the…

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. I want the balance found in the Trinity Not the extremism I find within me.  

Are You After God’s Purpose for Your Life or His Plans?

Do you ever feel lost or confused about God’s will for your life? The elusive will of God—that thing we say we desire while we pursue our will for our lives and ask God to approve our plans. God has been teaching me a thing or two lately about why He made me. I daresay…

Reblog: The Reason I Don’t Pray for the Genocide in Iraq

I don’t have words to talk about the situation in Iraq right now, but I thought these were great thoughts from Jamie Jones and wanted to share them with you. May they inspire you to pray like they have inspired me. (P.S. Thanks to Austin Phillips for sharing this post via Facebook.) — Tiffany The…

World Hunger? Solved.

By Lydia Sellers>>> In our own country, cities, neighborhoods, and homes, souls are famished for food. Spiritual skeletons walk around us every day, longing for substance. Consuming everything the media offers, none are satisfied. Like eating glass, the messages we digest from our culture don’t satisfy and cause internal bleeding. However, we Christians have the…

You Don’t Have to Try So Hard

By Tiffany Deluccia >>> I may be the last one to the punch here, sharing this video a week after it came out, but I thought it had a strong message for all of us ladies! Colbie Callait’s new song ‘Try” — What was your gut reaction to it? How about this video? Would you…

Getting to Shockingly Gracious

When she’s been hurt. When she’s disappointed. When she’s angry. When she’s frustrated. When she’s tired. A woman who does not give grace lacks the deepest kind of beauty: The willingness to yield to the Holy Spirit that always prompts us to forgive. Always prompts us to display love the way Christ did. Selflessly. If you’re anything…

Burn to Memory Proverbs 11:16

By Tiffany Deluccia >>> Learning to be a gracious woman. This verse arrested my heart a few weeks ago. Let’s memorize it together. I’ll share more thoughts tomorrow but I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below on what it means (or what it doesn’t mean) to be a gracious woman. What do…

Burn to Memory 1 Timothy 1:5

By Tiffany Deluccia I wrote a blog post on this verse a few weeks ago, and I forgot to post the Burn to Memory image! In my opinion, that post is worth another look. (I certainly haven’t mastered simplicity since then!) Either way, enjoy this download from my friend Trista and let it remind you…

Are we playing games with poverty?

By Tiffany Deluccia >>> When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep— So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, And your need like an armed man. Proverbs 6:9-11 Poverty takes many forms. There’s the poverty that creates physical lack and…
