    We live in a world with many distractions and messages that pull us in many directions. I write to encourage you to slow down and allow your soul to stop and connect with our loving God. I believe when we still our racing minds and bodies in God's presence, we can know God more intimately (see Psalm 46:10).

7 Things I learned in November

Hi, Friends, This month's focus: learning to walk more in faith and less in fear: 1. Pay attention to my thoughts and slam the door on the negative. "Beloved, unbelief is crippling. . . the steps we take forward with God we take through faith or unbelief [2 Cor. 5:7].

What negative thoughts or lies do you need to shut the door on? This past month, I've tried to ...

Can we trust God enough to rest? Rest from carrying tomorrow's burdens? Rest from "fixing" ourselves or anyone else for that matter? Rest from shaming ourselves when we fail because God doesn't condemn us? My friend Lisa Burgess made the adorable graphic as part of her review of 7 Days of Soul Care. Like most people, I need regular reminders to
