"I can see God in this." That's all we need to hear, right? If one person can see God in this worldwide lock down...this incredible pandemic...would we say it's been worth it? It's taking quite a bit of faith for me to say that this all might be worth it, or that there is a purpose in this uncertain time, if just one … [Read More...] Certainty in Uncertain Times

I read something in my Bible study the other day that gripped me. It felt like the words I've been looking for to describe what we do at Naomi's House. In The Gospel of Ruth by Carolyn Custis James, she describes what she thinks Boaz was representing when he first interacted with Ruth. The scene is this: … [Read More...] Feed Them
