Give Thanks

Friday Devotional - Give Thanks

I believe most people long for a closer and more intimate relationship with Christ from time to time. I know I do. The question is, how can we make this happen? How can we feel closer to God? Well, I believe Scripture points to a thankful heart:

Thursday Thoughts - Thankfulness continues on Thanksgiving!

Content provided by Jenna Finkenhoefer Thankfulness continues on Thanksgiving! If you missed my post on Tuesday, I asked my Pizza Ranch Family to share what they are most thankful for this year. Here are even more responses I received this week. I continue to be amazed and inspired at the responses. What an incredible privilege it is to work with all of you at Pizza Ranch. THANK YOU. I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I did…and Happy Thanksgiving! “To me, Thanksgiving is all about enjoying time with family and friends and thanking God for the many blessings he has given me.”

Tuesday Truths - Thankfulness abounds!

Content Provided by Jenna Finkenhoefer I’m so grateful to be able to contribute to PR serves and was especially excited to contribute on the week of the Thanksgiving holiday. However, I really was challenged with finding inspiration….so, I leaned into my Pizza Ranch Family, and asked several people to share what they were most thankful for this holiday season. The responses I received truly made me realize what an incredible team we are at Pizza Ranch. So, this year I’m most thankful for the wonderful people I work with- you truly make every day a blessing. I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I did! More to come later this week! “I am thankful for my family, and having a roof over my head, and a full heart and pantry.”

Monday Mission - “Don’t be a “MARTHA”

Content provided by Jenna Finkenhoefer “Don’t be a “MARTHA” (Unless, of course, your name is Martha) I’m sure you are familiar with the story of Martha and Mary (Luke 10: 38-42). Each time I hear the story of Mary and Martha, especially the week of Thanksgiving, when my plate is literally overflowing with tasks to complete prior to the holiday, I can completely relate to Martha, and can appreciate her frustration with her sister Mary. “What the heck Mary? Can’t you see I’m busy here?!”

Friday Devotional - Esther

The book of Esther is full of many examples of leadership, drama, conflict, and redemption. One thing to look at is the character qualities…

Thursday Thought - The Vastness of God

One of the things I love most about Iowa is all of our farmland and the beauty that it displays no matter the time of the year. While I grew up in Kansas City (very different than Orange City), all of my grandparents and much of my extended family lived in Northern Iowa and lived on farms.

Tuesday Truth – Bravery in Brokenness

At church, we are starting a new series on the book of Ruth. The first message was titled “Bravery in Brokenness” and the pastor talked about chapter 1 only. If you need a refresher on the story of Ruth, it’s a wonderful account of how God is providential in His timing and how He provides for His people in unexpected ways, even in the midst of tragedy.

Monday Mission – Pray for Missionaries

This week Pizza Ranch has a team of 29 people in Jamaica, working alongside a group of local people there on several different projects. For almost a decade now, we have partnered with this same group of people, building relationships with many locals, loving on them and their families, and helping with construction and other community enhancement projects.

A Pure Heart Pslams 51

Friday Devotional – A Pure Heart

We’ve been slowly walking through the Book of Psalms, and this week we’re looking at (Psalm 51). The Psalms do such a great job of talking about the topics and emotions we most often deal with in life.
