    In 2014, my husband Stephen and I moved to the coast of Georgia from our home in a north Atlanta suburb. We were burned out from working in non-profit organizations - him for 15 years and me for nearly 10. We knew we needed to change our lives before they became unmanageable. Stephen is open about the anxiety and depression he was dealing with during that seaso...

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden

     

    Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he leads justice...

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden

     

    My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the ...

    The Bible says, "In His presence is fu...

  • Why do I need so much encouragement to become the Christian I aspire to be?

    This question plagues me often. It seems like I can never do enough to keep myself on track with Bible study, prayer, Christian alms-giving and service; I’m easily distracted from my lofty goals by the minutiae of everyday life. Then, when I read a particularly inspiring book about faith or hear the story of someone...
