A Barn Story

Sandy Fulginiti Devotional

Everyone loves a good story. This one is near and dear to my heart. It’s about second chances. It’s a story of transformation and it began in an unlikely place nestled in a small North Carolina town. When a young couple went searching for their first home, they came upon a little red farmhouse. On the foreground of the property …

Thank You for Your Intention

Michelle Marsalis Coen Devotional

It was one of those dreary, wet blanket kind of days where there’s no distinction between the sullen grey sky and the rain soaked pavement. From my window seat, I watched the soggy tarmac bustle with activity as I tried to tune out the angry phone conversation taking place in the seat next to me.

Come As You Are!

Sandy Fulginiti Devotional

Can you even imagine the possibility if this were true?  Can you grasp the multiplication of blessing? What if we opened our doors and were proactive in seeking out others face to face in genuine community? What if we were free to open our hearts and homes to all that came seeking? Recently, I was challenged by unexpected guests coming …

The Dangerous Prayer

Stewart Fenters Devotional

Have you ever avoided asking a question because you thought you already knew the answer? This past winter when the stomach bug was floating around, my son Elliott started walking slowly down the hall towards the bathroom and I reluctantly asked him the scary question, “Does your tummy hurt, buddy?” I already knew the answer. The bug had landed in …
