The Unexpected Comes, and Yet, God is Faithful!

Little did I know that God was preparing us for the day we didn’t know we’d encounter. My husband was scheduled to have a medical test on Wednesday, June 30th, and at first he didn’t want me to take the time off work to go with him. I began thinking that I should go with

We All Need People - Faith Caffeine - Joelle Povolni

We All Need People!

We all need people! Loved ones, friends, peers, even those we disagree with, mentors near and far, and those that we influence. Our family didn’t toast glasses of sparkling cider at midnight like usual this New Year’s Eve. I love traditions like this as they somehow connect us to the past, present and future all

Learning to Love Others Well When It's Hard

Learning To Love Others Well When It’s Hard

Loving people we disagree with isn’t easy, and yet, I feel God convicting my own heart all over again. God calls us to love others and live unoffended, and not give others control over our emotions or how we live out our future. Learning to love others well, when it’s hard, is God’s best for

Friends show up as strangers, it’s up to us to make friendships.

Isn’t Love Always The Key

Who couldn’t use more LOVE and less of everything else in their life? I don’t know when this dream started in my heart as a young girl. I had envisioned my grandfather, a minister, praying over my future husband and me on our wedding day, for as long as I could remember. Fast forward to

You Have A Choice

The first year or two we lived in Mississippi I pretty much skipped my favorite season, fall. I was waiting for the cool crisp, sunny weather to arrive before I decorated, or dressed for the season. Shorter days came, school was in full swing and others put out their fall decor. I waited. It was

Pleasing God is not about being perfect or performing well.

I overslept my alarm. I can’t even remember hearing it go off or shutting it off. I jumped out of bed with a start, and ran to wake up my daughter for virtual school (hello fall of 2020), to make coffee and to get ready to leave for work. Mornings like this feel invasive. Pleasing

Fear Wears A Mask Too – Part Two

Irrational fears don’t play fair. Like when we don’t apply for a new job because we’ve worked on one computer platform for so long that we have convinced ourselves we’ll be quite computer illiterate on the other one. This may sound stupid y’all, but fears often do in hindsight. Little irrational fears combined with larger,

Fear Wears A Mask Too – Part One

Irrational fears may be silly, or embarrassing, but y’all they are for real.  I know they are no joke because of how many times I find myself angsting over or paralyzed by one. I bet you’ve experienced this in one way or another in your life too. The first and only job I was ever

Is Anything Certain With Having Faith?

Nothing prepares us for lightning strikes stripping the bark off of trees during storms or seasons of life where it’s hard to focus, as our life takes on new shapes and forms we’ve never seen. Maybe we have less time, or too much time. We may find ourselves pivoting from the path we’ve known.  A
