Hospitality Isn’t Just for the Holidays, It’s a Ministry

Hospitality Isn’t Just for the Holidays, It’s a Ministry

The holidays are here and many of us are probably thinking about the guests coming over, the gifts, the parties, and how we plan to practice hospitality. But, did you know that hospitality is biblical? It’s more than pretty Pinterest dining room tables. The Old and New Testament are filled with stories about hospitality and how it helped spread the Gospel. Jesus is our biggest example of what it means to be hospitable. Join me today as I go through the Hospitality acronym and discuss my earliest experiences with hospitality and talk about a special friend at the end who was a shining example of the light and love of Jesus. This episode is dedicated to Dolly, who I will greatly miss.

Breaking Bread Without Losing Your Head! Diving Into the Details of the Thanksgiving Dinner Table

Breaking Bread Without Losing Your Head! Diving Into the Details of the Thanksgiving Dinner Table

Hospitality is not just about a pretty table, it's about how you position your heart to serve others and to make them feel comfortable. If you are at ease your guests will be too. We always hear it's not about being perfect it's about being present and I 100% agree. The presentation doesn't matter if your guests feel uncomfortable. Often we get caught up in the presentation because we try to give our guests the best experience we can give them, but the best experience starts with a relaxed hostess. Preparation and pre-decision help you be present and not worry about those details that drive us crazy.  Today I will discuss how to take Thanksgiving inventory so that you do that pre-decision work and get prepared so you can be present! In this episode I'll talk about taking inventory of the following: Tables, chairs, and serving tables The number of plates (main course, dessert, and any appetizers) you need for the number of guests you are hosting. The number of glasses, coffee cups, or wine glasses Silverware Napkins whether cloth or paper Serving Dishes & Utensils Tablecloths Of course, I won't leave you high and dry without some resources to make taking inventory easier! Go to my website and get 4 downloads!  2 Thanksgiving To-do Lists with different designs Thanksgiving Inventory List- One is blank that you can fill in, and the other list I have filled in some of the categories for you, to make it super simple.

Faith Flicks Friday Pick! Divine Influencer

Faith Flicks Friday Pick! Divine Influencer

If you are looking for a good movie with a relatable theme, then listen to my review about the heartwarming and uplifting faith-based movie, "Divine Influencer," available on Pure Flix. The film centers around Olivia, a 29-year-old social media influencer who is pretty materialistic, who suddenly and unexpectedly finds herself at a crossroads in life after a series of unfortunate events that humbles her quickly!

Olivia's world takes a dramatic turn when she loses her job at a fashion designer's firm, and simultaneously, her philanthropic Christian parents cut off her financial lifeline, and she faces eviction from her apartment. It's a perfect storm of adversity that forces Olivia to reevaluate her life choices.

Olivia takes a job as a Resident Assistant (RA) at a Christian rescue shelter's dormitory for women. The mission is run by a familiar face from her high school days, adding an intriguing layer to the story. As Olivia navigates the challenges of her new role, she embarks on a soul-searching journey that leads her to rediscover her faith, embrace selflessness, and find a deeper purpose in life.

A Reflection on Psalm 36:4...Are You Committed To God’s Course for Your Life?

As followers of Christ, we are called to be committed to a course that leads to a specific point—a course that aligns with God's will and promises abundance and peace. But in our journey, we often encounter the tempting and deceiving course of sin, which can lead to spiritual depletion.

We'll delve into the deceptive allure of the course of sin and its potential consequences while highlighting the assurance we have as followers of Christ.

Wisdom Wednesday! A New Month & a New Theme! The Power of the Tongue

Wisdom Wednesday! A New Month & a New Theme! The Power of the Tongue

This month we will study the Proverbs that talk about the power of our tongue. The tongue has the power to bring life or death, and the impact it has on those around us is tremendous! Today I discuss Proverbs 12:18 “The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

The Key Reflection Questions are:
1. Are your words giving life to the people around
you? Do you encourage, build up, and restore?
2. What reckless words do you find yourself saying, if any, and think about where those words are stemming from? Is there bitterness,
envy, anger, or sadness that you may need to tend to that is simmering?
3. Think about how you can intentionally bring healing into the lives of your family, friends, and people you don’t know well? Think about this in terms of interacting with strangers; how can you be a peacemaker instead of a peacebreaker?
4. Think about the verse, Can both fresh water and saltwater flow from the same spring? We know this can not happen, but do you find this
happening in your life? Are you praising God and cursing man?
Thank you for listening! Let's be peacemakers in a world of peacebreakers!

Taking Up My Mat! My 30-Day Fitness Challenge!

In today's Faith, Coffee & a Kid Podcast episode, I discuss my 30-day commitment to improving my physical health. The past year has been full of ups and downs, and all around, that has left me feeling physically unmotivated, and it shows.

He has an incredible story that reminds you that you can can overcome any obstacle with the strength of Christ and an attitude of faith. Nick was born with no limbs, and to see what God has done through him is inspiring!

Today’s movie recommendation is probably my favorite Faith based movie of the year! It is based on a true story of a spiritual awakening in the 1970s that embodies idea of spreading the gospel and breaking down the barriers that keep us from building bridges of love and being the hands and feet of Jesus! Hope you enjoy the review! This is a great movie night selection for the entire family!

Wisdom Wednesday! Are you plowing in season to reap a harvest?

Wisdom Wednesday! Are you plowing in season to reap a harvest?

Today is all about plowing in season to either reap a harvest or not. Proverbs 20:4 tell us, “ The Sluggard does not plow in season so at harvest finds nothing.” Don’t you love how the Proverbs gives us practical wisdom on the consequences of our action or non—action? When we do not plow in season we often miss opportunities, we miss God’s blessings and we miss the opportunity to be a blessing to others. Today I dive into this scripture and reflect on how we with reap a harvest or not. Some reflection questions are: what seeds are you planting in your life in your ministry in your family that you are nurturing? Or what seeds are you not. 2) are you plowing in season? What are you investing in? How have you invested in the gifts you are blessed with? Are you moving towards God‘s purpose or away from it? 3) Think about the season you are currently in, is it a season of opportunity or a season of preparation, to sit in prayer and get ready for the next chapter of your life? Also please answer the quick poll on whether you would be interested in a short devotional to go along with the theme we are studying in Proverbs? Thank you for listening!

Wisdom Wednesday! Is Your Path Blocked by Thorns or Is It an Open Highway? Proverbs 15:19

Wisdom Wednesday! Is Your Path Blocked by Thorns or Is It an Open Highway? Proverbs 15:19

Today I jump into Proverbs 15:19, “ The way of the Sluggard is blocked with thorns but the path of upright is a highway.” What obstacles are blocking your way, what competing thoughts are keeping you from the open highway that leads to God’s abundance for your life. There is so much practical wisdom in this Proverb and self reflection that we can apply to our lives. The 4 Key Takeaways are: 1) if you find yourself relating to the Sluggard, reflect on the opportunities you may have missed, or passages that have been closed, and your role through your thoughts and actions? 2) Think about a time when opportunities and people were places in your path at a time when you were diligent and walking in obedience? 3) The Sluggard blocks it’s own path through habits - physical, mental and spiritual. What habits or thorns may be impeding you? 4) Do you take time to ponder the path you’re on? Is it a path that leads to an open highway or a closed off street?

It’s Wisdom Wednesday! Let’s Dive Into Proverbs 13:4! Are You a Sluggard or Diligent?

Welcome to the 1st episode of Wisdom Wednesday! Today I’ll be digging into Proverbs 13:4 “ The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.” There’s so much wisdom in this verse that I think you will relate to on a very practical level! God wants us to know and receive the magnitude of his spiritual blessings and abundance but we must choose wisely and act with diligence and not a sluggard attitude. I also give 4 applications, or questions for you to think about that you can apply in your life from this verse. Let me know your thoughts!

Is a Judgmental Attitude Burning Out Your Christian Light?

Is a Judgmental Attitude Burning Out Your Christian Light?

Did you know that according to a recent poll by the Episcopal Church, entitled Jesus in America, that 54% of those 3119 adults polled with no religious affiliation found Christians judgmental, 55% said we are hypocrites and 50% said we were self righteous? Wow! As Christians we should find this disheartening. In this episode I dive deep into why judgment is squashing our Christian light and stopping us from effectively carrying out the message of Jesus.
