DON’T IGNORE THE SIGNS OF SPIRITUAL HUNGER | SARAH VALENTOUR
“Hangry—a combination of hungry and angry—is a cutesy word we use to justify a lack of self-control while experiencing hunger. Much like my lack of self-control reveals when I’m physically hungry, the stirring and growling of my soul reveals when I’m spiritually hungry. Without realizing it, I’m ignoring the signs of spiritual hunger.”
THE BIBLE NEVER OFFERS A DRINK FROM SHALLOW WATERS | TIM CHALLIES
“As a practical guide there is no book to touch it. There is not a problem you are called to face and not a duty you are compelled to carry and not a burden you are forced to bear but your strength for it all will be as the strength of ten—if you make a daily companion of your Bible.”

“I paid lip service to the idea that the Bible was inerrant and infallible, and I even spent a considerable amount of time memorizing the Scripture (thanks to God-fearing parents), but honestly, it just didn’t mean that much to me. It was just a book with some true things in it.”
DANDELION DAYS | AIMEE JOSEPH
“Thus, for the dandelion, losing its last threads of its self is technically winning. In dying to itself, it is fulfilling the very mission for which it so intricately exists: to scatter and shed abroad its seeds of life. Its death means the new life of countless more dandelion plants who, in time, will return the favor!”
