Gratitude Over Grumbling

Gratitude Over Grumbling

by Leslie Ann Jones November 01, 2018

Every year at this time, my social media feed explodes with friends and family members counting their blessings, one day at a time, and honestly, I enjoy those posts a lot more than the political ones that generally clog things up. If there's nothing else we can learn from social media, let's remember this: Gratitude is better than grumbling.

A Heart Devoted

A Heart Devoted

by Leslie Ann Jones October 01, 2018

Hannah's story is beautiful and compelling and convicting all at the same time. I want to be like her when I grow up. I long for that kind of intimacy. That kind of faithfulness. That kind of trust. Don't you? May the same fervent devotion take root in our hearts and spill out in our prayers today and tomorrow and the day after that too.

Beauty for Ashes

Beauty for Ashes

by Leslie Ann Jones September 01, 2018

When life gets hairy, we usually know what we need to do to make things better, but sometimes, especially if it's a hard thing, we shy away from doing it and just keep trucking along. For some crazy reason, we prefer the ashes of this life to the beauty that God has set aside for us...or maybe that's just me.

Free Indeed

Free Indeed

by Leslie Ann Jones July 01, 2018

We've made so many sweet memories celebrating freedom with our people over the years, but it's not only our freedom as Americans that's cause for celebration. If you are in Christ, you are truly free, and nothing in this world can change that. Amen and amen.

Lay it Down

Lay it Down

by Leslie Ann Jones June 01, 2018

The truth is that I'm a little bit of a control freak, and it's harder than I'd like to admit for me to let go of all my little kingdoms, but it's worth it. Because that's where God is. He meets me in the surrender and in the bowing down and in the letting go. What do you need to lay down today? Are you trying to control every detail of your life, or are you trusting in the Lord?

Fear the Lord

Fear the Lord

by Leslie Ann Jones May 01, 2018

Contrary to popular belief, the woman in Proverbs 31 wasn't perfect. She was only human, after all. The thing that set her apart wasn't her work ethic or charitable giving (although those were certainly commendable). It was her fear of the Lord. She feared God, and she ordered her life accordingly.

Live Fully Alive

Live Fully Alive

by Leslie Ann Jones April 01, 2018

For us who believe, Easter is so much more than new spring dresses and chocolate bunnies. It's more than overflowing baskets and egg hunts and marshmallow peeps. It's the most important part of the Christian faith. It's central to the gospel message—because Jesus is alive, we are too, and that's cause for celebration.

Raise Your Gaze

Raise Your Gaze

by Leslie Ann Jones March 01, 2018

I don't know about you, but for me, 2018 has flown by in a blur. Between the shop rebranding, speaking engagements, product development (new resources coming soon), obligations at church, and all the other things, I just haven't had a minute to slow down. But I need one. I'm willing to bet that you do too.
