Self Care through Christ
Life pulls you in so many directions, and the demands on your time and your psyche can seem overwhelming. Experience the joy and contentment that comes from knowing we have stopped striving and are rest in God's unconditional love.

Dear Friend -- I just had to share this post with you, written this time last year, as it is one of my all-time favorites. -- Love, Lisa
It's such an interesting message the world sends us this time of year, and by interesting, [...]

Introducing Our Newest Young Adult Bible Studies

December 2, 2018

I remember my first official day of working for Walking with Purpose vividly. I hit the ground running in Chicago, surrounded by more than 8,000 college students at SLS 2018, a young adult conference hosted by FOCUS, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students.
This time was exciting for a variety of reasons, [...]

Just Wait, That's All.

November 11, 2018

It was 11 PM and pitch dark as I crept up Signal Mountain for the first time. My best friend had warned me that the path to her new Tennessee home was lined with hairpin turns. Although I heeded this warning, I also shrugged it off due to my decent amount of experience driving up and down mountainous terrain. [...]

Longing for Something More

November 4, 2018

The holidays are coming and the influx of catalogs in my mailbox confirms it. I can't seem to throw them away because their contents might offer me the perfect Christmas gift for my husband, the ideal accessory for my house, or to-die-for shoes. The likelihood of me actually buying something from them is very slim, [...]

My favorite/least favorite question I have ever been asked is, “If heaven didn't exist, would you still obey God?”
Don't worry, I'm squirming in my seat too.
My first thought was, “Yes, of course I would still follow the rules. I'm a good Christian after all!” But then, [...]

I read in a recent Fox News article, “The Vatican responded Thursday to the report of hundreds of Pennsylvania priests abusing children, [...]

Kick-Start Real Change

August 19, 2018

Are you tired of your list of good intentions that never translate to action? How many times have you made a resolution (and really meant it) only to fail within a few short weeks?
We've all been there. It isn't that we aren't aware of the ways we need to improve…but actually making the changes can be overwhelming. [...]

Continuing the Fight for our Freedom

July 1, 2018

I am heading to the White House to celebrate the 4th of July. For real. Our son, Jonny, is performing there and is bringing me along-my flight and hotel included in the deal. A confession-when we first got the news (along with a request for our social security numbers), [...]

Throw on Your Leather Pants and Embrace Your Identity as a Warrior

June 17, 2018

As I walked to my favorite coffee shop in downtown St. Augustine to write this post, I nestled into a fitting mental posture by reciting the word, “warrior,” over and over again. As I did, all sorts of quintessential, warrior-esque images popped into my mind's eye. [...]

Warrior for the Ordinary

June 10, 2018

Summer invites me to slow down—to settle in to the here and now—to eat the ice cream cone slowly enough that it melts down my hand. So, I usually order ice cream in a dish and eat it fast. I don't say this with pride in my efficiency. [...]
