#write31days: Day 8 – Truth

Jo / October 8, 2017

I couldn’t think of anything to write on this topic today so I thought I’d find some Scriptures to meditate on instead. “Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.” (Ps 51:6) “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to…

#write31days: Day 7 – Hold

Jo / October 7, 2017

Do you ever feel like your life is on hold? Like, there’s something more waiting for you? Maybe you can identify the more, maybe you cannot. Maybe you know what it is that has you “stuck” and maybe you do not. But, regardless of being able to articulate the whys and whats behind it all, you know there’s more. And…

#write31days: Day 6 – Story

It’s Not About Guns, It’s About Hate

Jo / June 12, 2016

My husband is kind of a shy guy. He doesn’t feel the need to talk (unless it’s in the car with me). He has opinions, but doesn’t feel the need to share them and when he does speak, it is usually to make a joke or say something witty or funny. He’s a serious guy, but he doesn’t take himself…

Wrecked by Redemption

Jo / July 30, 2015

Old & New A few years ago, I participated in an eleven month long mission trip called The World Race. All the participants were encouraged to blog through the months and ministries. That’s when, I believe, the Lord began to water the seed of writing He’d planted within me long ago. But, I’ve struggled with writing since returning from the…

The Ironic Thing About Writing

Jo / May 11, 2015

Here’s something ironic. The hardest thing about wanting to be – er wait, I mean, being – a writer… (…writing coaches keep telling me I need to claim the title of “Writer.” Which is odd, really. Because a Writer writes, right? And I haven’t written a thing in months. But, whatever, they’re the writers and I’m the wannabe so I’ll trust…
