Thursday Thought – Remind Yourself of God
Sometimes I forget to think about God. I don’t mean it in a bad way – not like I’m walking away from Jesus or my faith. But rather that I get busy with life.
Wednesday Story of Impact – Prayer Requests
I’ve always felt like the Pizza Ranch Support Center is a special place to work for a lot of reasons. I get along with pretty everyone here, have a great team I get to work with every day and (because #honesty) there’s usually some sort of pizza or other snacks in the breakroom.
Tuesday Truth – Be Strong and Courageous
One of my favorite themes of the Bible is how God promises to be with us. In the book Joshua, Joshua was appointed as the new leader of the Israelites after Moses died and God was calling him to some epic battles.
Monday Mission – Read a Favorite Verse
You know how your favorite song makes you feel? Warm inside, probably “known” or “seen” in some way? What about your favorite food? A comforting feeling probably comes over you.
Friday Devotional – Unfailing Love
We’ve been slowly walking through the Book of Psalms, and this week we’re looking at (Psalm 36). The Psalms do such a great job of talking about the topics and emotions we most often deal with in life. There’s so much in this chapter, like always. There are
Thursday Thought - Manure Happens
“Manure Happens” is an interesting/funny take on an old phrase. I heard this on a podcast interview Tim Timmons gave about going through tough times in life. While manure may initially seem bad and something we want to avoid, it also has many beneficial purposes.

Crops that are grown on land treated with manure produce healthier crops.

Tuesday Truth - Trust
One of my favorite verses is Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” This is an important reminder for me. It’s easy to get sucked into worry and anxiety about what might happen or what someone might think of me. We need to remember the name of our God, Immanuel, meaning “God is with us”. This verse reminds me to not worry and trust that God is with me now and every day after. We needn’t worry about tomorrow, just walk with God today.
Monday Mission - Prayer
Prayer…How often do we stop and talk to God? Is it just a quick request or do we take time to really spend intimate time with God? The Shema prayer, in Deuteronomy 6:4-5, is one of the most famous prayers in the Bible. “Hear O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one. And as for you, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”
Friday Devotional - The Power of Your Words
It seems like a lot of my parenting moments of late have centered around encouraging my children to understand the power of their words and/or helping them to navigate through the hurt they feel due to the powerful words of another. All too often we underestimate the power of our words and how they can either build someone up or tear someone down.
