A Pop-Up Prayer

Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Here in Charlotte, school buses started their daily trek to and from schools to scoop up and drop off children this week. Teachers were up early, ready […]

A Radiant Face

Psalm 34:5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. Have you spent time with a toddler recently? I have! Two of my staff members have young girls… one has a 20 month old daughter (with a second on the way!), and the other has an almost-kindergartner, and every few […]

Slow Down

Everyone knows the tale of the tortoise and the hare. The hare flies through the race, but still ends up coming in second. The moral of the story is simple, “Slow and steady wins the race.” We’ve repeated it since we were cutting construction paper in elementary school; however, slowing down, finding intentionality and breathing […]

Film-Making Friday

The Spoken Word

2 Samuel 23:2 The Spirit of the Lord spoke through me; his word was on my tongue. There are so many ways we can record our words these days. Constructively, we can share our internal thoughts between the pages of a journal. All too often, we recklessly take to Facebook, Twitter, or whatever social media channel […]

An Itinerary

As I write this, my three girls are on the adventure of a lifetime, working their way through Europe. As we watched the summer wind down, Clark and I decided to send the girls on this trip… a chance to explore their independence, bond more deeply as sisters, and experience new places and culture. It […]

A Painting for Oprah

Our team has been busy preparing a brand new project that we’re excited to release this fall. We’ve been revisiting some of our favorite stories from our original edition of Angels In Our Midst, and it seemed like a great time to share about my painting for Oprah. We’re excited to share more with you in […]
