Resisting Rest

By Lara d’Entremont
Guest Contributor 

I sighed as I stood next to the video monitor, listening to the poor, tired girl cry from her crib. She was yawning and rubbing her eyes when I arrived to babysit. And yet, despite being exhausted, she resisted sleep like it was a monster out to get her.  

I don’t have children of my own yet, but from what I’ve seen in other people’s children, it seems they resist sleep the more tired they are.…

Every day that we rise from our beds with breath in our lungs is another day the Lord has given us. Each day is filled with its own purposes that were prepared by God in advance for this time and place.…

Rejoice, Pray, Give Thanks

Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 15 

This year has brought a steady stream of trials. My younger brother died very unexpectedly in January, caught in a rip tide while on vacation. Three days after his funeral, I was in the operating room having surgery.…

Spiritual Pruning

By Aubrey Coleman 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

When the blooming seasons end, it’s time to clip and trim our favorite florals down to their bare branches. The work of pruning is an essential gardening skill. To prune means to cut off or cut back parts for better shape or more fruitful growth.…
