5 unlikely benefits of listening to the Bible

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

Several months ago, I completely re-engineered my Bible reading plan. One of the changes I implemented is that instead of just reading my Bible, I started listening to it as well. I have the YouVersion app installed on my Kindle, so whenever it’s time to read, I pull up the day’s passage, press the Play… Read More »

School begins today, and I’m officially the mom of a 2nd grader and a Kindergartener! We had a fantastic summer, and I’m sad to see it end.

Is God small enough for you?

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

A few days after we returned from our 15-day, three-destination, 3,100-mile road trip, I spent an afternoon with the Lord and my journal reliving the evidence of His power and majesty that were evident daily on our vacation. [Photo: Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, CO] I could see Him in the sun’s early rays… Read More »

Who are you trying to please?

Author: Emily E. Ryan

The other day, I stumbled upon this verse by Paul: “Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant” (Gal. 1:10 NLT). You know what word popped out at me the most? The word, obviously. It stuck out because,… Read More »

I’ve gone insane. Join me, won’t you?

Categories: Emily's Posts

Basically, my husband and I have gone insane. For months, we planned to spend our summer vacation at my family’s lake house on Lake Livingston. One week. Close to home. No frills. Relaxing fun. But somehow over the past few weeks, that plan has changed to: Two weeks. Few days at the lake. Road trip… Read More »

Do you ever out grow guilt?

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

Any time an email begins with, “My cousin gave me a copy of your book while we were at a funeral,” I know I have to keep reading. Is that a “thing” now, I wondered, and imagined pews of mourners passing down tissues and copies of my books during “I’ll Fly Away.” No, it’s not… Read More »

Fireworks in eternity

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

For several years now, my church has a tradition of celebrating July 4th at the cross on our campus with a huge picnic / baptism / concert / fireworks extravaganza. Thousands of people bring blankets, lawn chairs, wagons, umbrellas, food and cans of OFF for a laid-back night of thanking God for our freedom –… Read More »

The only books your family will need this summer

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

If you are the least bit familiar with The Chronicles of Narnia, it is probably because of the most popular of the seven books, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. It’s the story that launched the series, and it’s held strong for over 60 years. Lucy. The White Witch. Aslan. The stone table. It… Read More »

What you’re up against

Author: Emily E. Ryan
Categories: Emily's Posts

It really doesn’t matter how old or young you are. You still want to look fabulous. You want to drop or gain a few (or a lot of) pounds. You wish your hair was straighter or curlier or darker or lighter. If your eyes were a different color, that would be great. And your closet… Read More »

Do you need to SHOUT?

Author: Emily E. Ryan

Sometimes, we just need to SHOUT about what the Lord is doing in our lives! Why? Because other people need to hear it! When others see God’s hand upon your life, it encourages them in their own lives. So, don’t keep it a secret! Share it with us! What is God whispering in your ear?… Read More »
