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…

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…

Burn to Memory Proverbs 24:10

  By Tiffany Deluccia I sometimes find myself believing in my heart of hearts that if I’m doing well and following God’s lead, that I should experience calm waters. The opposite is often true: The more you seek after God’s heart and His will, the more opposition you will face. It does no good to…

That Moment When…

By Tiffany Deluccia That moment when: The unknown drops your stomach like a rock. The road erodes in front of your feet. A fog descends to hide the valley, leaving only a view of the mountain beyond it. He whispers, “Hold onto your courage. Isn’t this fun? I lead you with one hand over your…

Burn to Memory Hebrews 12:1-2

UPDATE: So, this was the Burn to Memory verse back at the end of October, and the focus was on the “running the race with endurance” part. For this week, we’re focusing on the “since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses part.” Aaannnd, I just realized Trista had designed two separate mobile…

And the Lord says wait.

By Tiffany Deluccia “Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall run and not grow weary. They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 This verse is on my refrigerator right now. You know why? Because we have been in a pressure cooker for months, and God’s word is life. When the…

Fear and faith in the ICU

Someone close to us was in the hospital. Someone young. Sudden and confounding. No one knew exactly why it was happening.

Burn to Memory Psalm 46:10

  Burn to Memory is our special section focused on Scripture to memorize. Pin it, print it or make it your smartphone wallpaper. Why is memorizing Scripture so important? What’s in your heart comes out at the moments when it is needed. (And if what’s in there isn’t good, it’ll come out even when you don’t want…

Rain is a good thing.

By Anna Vanhoose I don’t know about y’all but here in South Carolina it has rained nonstop for three months. It’s crazy! It’s so hard to not let your day get ruined when you wake up and see that – big surprise- it’s raining again. These days it’s hard for me not to get bummed…

Come and go.

By Tiffany Deluccia To come and to go. Since the beginning of the year, my Bible study leader has been repeating that phrase. The two number one callings of every Christ-follower are to come to Him and to go into the world with His love. But when the pressure is on… – mid-term exams approach…

Burn to Memory Matthew 28:18-19

Sometimes jarring yourself back into perspective is as simple as recalling this verse: This is what we were left here to do. Wherever you are, this is your goal. Your purpose is to know Him; your mission is to make Him known. When the pressure is on, do we call to remembrance His sacrifice for…

Burn to Memory 2 Thessalonians 3:13

Tomorrow is the first day of October – nutty how quickly this year is going by! The end of the year can  turn into a boiling pot of high-stress ingredients mixed with a lot of things that are supposed to be fun. For me, those currently include holidays, football games, my sister’s wedding, family birthdays,…
