Back home in Alabama, right in the middle of downtown hidden off behind a few buildings near our city Civic Center, there stands a rickety old set of stairs. It’s like something out of an 80’s horror movie if you want me to be perfectly honest. It’s all rusted up and creaks and clangs when […]

Guard Their Spiritual Journey

Guarding our family's Spiritual Journey | Courtney Kirkland

Since the beginning of COVID-19, I have been absolutely unhinged by how clearly and how loudly God will speak when we are actually listening to Him and listening for Him. It’s almost as if COVID-19 helped to strip away everything that was clouding our faith and cluttering our lives. Although the things that it took […]

Blessed are the Gatekeepers

Blessed are the Gatekeepers | Courtney Kirkland

From the time that I was a child, I have always wanted nothing more than to change the world. Despite knowing its significance and its impact on my children, most days motherhood doesn’t fulfill me.

Walking in Disobedience

I received a Review copy of the ESV Prayer Bible from the good folks at Crossway in exchange for my honest opinion. Their generosity in no way influenced my opinion. Anyone who has been here for very long knows that I have a deep rooted passion for prayer. When I read the book Fervent a few years […]

ESV Prayer Bible

A few days ago a friend said something to me that I haven’t been able to shake. I have thought about it. Pondered it. Prayed about it. Journaled about it. Not many things stick with me like that. I typically let things roll off my back and keep a very thin file of things said. […]

Embracing your Battle Scars

I received a Review copy of the NIV Artisan Collection Journaling Bible from the good folks at Zondervan in exchange for my honest opinion. Their generosity in no way influenced my opinion. This Bible arrived by surprise one day at my front door. Typically, I know when I have new products coming but this one was a […]

I received a Review copy of the CSB Notetaking Bible from the good folks at Christian Standard Bible in exchange for my honest opinion. Their generosity in no way influenced my opinion.
