A Bright, White Kitchen Makeover

Our bright, white kitchen it is one of my favorite parts of our home! My husband and I moved out of our very first 1,400 square foot home and into our new house almost two years ago. We were just getting back from a vacation to the North Island of New Zealand, and immediately following our 13-hour flight and a little bit of sleep, we got the keys and started moving in! It was slightly chaotic and we were jet-lagged, but the excitement superseded the tiredness and we had a blast.

Lord, Please Help My Unbelief

…“Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24)

In the midst of trials and temptation, we can often become clouded by our circumstances and allow ourselves to question God. We believe that He is God and we believe that He is good, but a part of us may not. We question His intentions, provision or power in our lives because we may not understand, or believe in, His plan or His goodness.
