All That We Have

Spring is in the air and I am itching to do all the things: wash the windows, declutter the house, plant the garden, mulch. I am pondering where to start. Is it my cabinets? They certainly have platters and mixers and crock pots and bowls all ever so neatly and gently (I’m sure) placed by […] The post Feeling overwhelmed?

How we interpret words really does matter

There is a line in a song from the Broadway musical Wicked where one of the main characters, Elphaba, says, “Something has changed within me. Something is not the same. I’m through with playing by the rules of someone’s else’s game.” This stanza is playing on repeat in my mind this morning as I actively […] The post How we interpret words really does matter appeared first on All That We Have ..read more

Finding rest in the everyday

What is rest? My husband asked me the other day as we unloaded dishwashers and made the coffee early in the morning. Our to-do lists that day were longer than the hours available to complete half of the tasks listed and my text messages were incoming with more requests. The day was overwhelming before the […] The post Finding rest in the everyday appeared first on All That We Have ..read more

I’ve been thinking a great deal about conversion lately, especially as we gathered over the holidays with friends and family. Time together gives many opportunities for conversations to be shared as we hear the ups and downs of each other’s year. As a parent listening, I think often how much easier the path would be […] The post Thoughts Turn to Conversion at Start of New Year appeared first on All That We Have ..read more

The process of letting go and letting God work in the lives of our children is an ever-present challenge. Recently, over the Christmas break, I was asked to explain to my son why I was Christian. I take my time to ponder and pray before such deep questions, especially when I know the sincerity behind […] The post Why I am a Christian appeared first on All That We Have ..read more

During Advent, we must watch as we wait

If love is a mission, then having eyes to see is its goal. When people are invited to our busy home, they often ask how they can help. My response is, “Have eyes to see a need and go ahead and fill it,” whether that be the vegetables on the cutting board that need to […] The post During Advent, we must watch as we wait appeared first on All That We Have ..read more

I sat in the café the other day watching a group of women share an animated conversation. They laughed and a couple more women sat and joined the conversation. I sat at my table, working on an article, and wondering why I never felt included in this particular group, why an invitation did not come […] The post Give Yourself the Grace appeared first on All That We Have ..read more

There are moments in family life where memories become etched firmly in our hearts. These moments provide a glimpse into the beauty of the Father’s provision in creating the family. Yesterday was one of those moments. It took a push from my husband and a nudge from the kids, but we paused the business of […] The post The Gift of Wasting Time appeared first on All That We Have ..read more

What is your family’s mission as you ‘serve the Lord’?
All That We Have
by marybeth
8M ago
“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”  We’ve heard this so often, perhaps inscribed on plaques we hang in our homes, but what do we really mean when we say it?  For Joshua in Scripture, these words were bold and declarative. He was throwing down the gauntlet in a loving but […] The post What is your family’s mission as you ‘serve the Lord’? appeared first on All That We Have ..read more
