Oh Coffee – I Am Thankful For You

OnlyTrueNorthInsights, JennahLeave a Comment

I may not be from Seattle anymore, but coffee is an integral part of my day. To be honest, it’s an integral part of multiple parts of my day. To me, coffee represents more than just something to wake me up and get my engine revving for whatever the day holds. (And if I am totally honest, coffee really does … Read More

But Above All, Be Brave

So last week I wrote about getting rid of fear and the importance of shining light on those things that give us anxiety so that their power is removed. Ironically as I hit publish on the post about our daughter’s epic health scare a few years ago I felt a TON of anxiety and fear. What is up, Lord? I … Read More

Let’s All Agree To Give Fear The Boot, Okay

It’s that time of year again…Halloween. To be honest, our family kind of lives under a rock when it comes to this holiday – we rarely dress the kids up, and if we do, we head to a church or school harvest party instead of trick or treating. I don’t have any major issues with trick or treating or dressing … Read More

YOU GUYS! It’s official: the OTN mugs arrived at my door today and pre-orders are shipping out this week! Asha and I are stoked beyond belief about these adorable coffee (or tea or water or whatever) containers!

The Perils of Peopling

This world can be a crazy place. Not always safe for people looking to nurture relationships. Hurt feelings and miscommunications can sink a ship of friendship before it has even really had time to test its mettle in open waters…and for people like me that step slowly into relationships and carry with them a very small inner circle of people … Read More

Living In The Trees

OnlyTrueNorthFriendship, Insights1 Comment

How many of you believe you are made for something bigger? That you are destined to change the world, if even in a seemingly small way? If you don’t feel that way, you should. Because you are created for greatness.   We all are. But here’s the thing…before we can spread wide and high like God has planned for us, we must … Read More

What Heights of Love, What Depths of Peace

OnlyTrueNorthInspirations, Jennah2 Comments

Recently I have been listening to a fantastic group called King’s Kaleidoscope. They. Are. Awesome. They have many songs, but my favorite album right now is “Asaph’s Arrows.” It is chock full of old hymns beautifully and powerfully redone…if you haven’t heard this band, get thee to your computer and LISTEN! Anyway, one of the songs I have been listening … Read More

When You’re Feeling Small

OnlyTrueNorthInspirations, JennahLeave a Comment

You know the feeling… dishes piled high and no break in sight. I’ve been there. Sometimes it feels like you’re Alice in Wonderland, and you’ve just sampled the shrinking potion and find yourself growing smaller and smaller while life’s problems and unknowns and monotony grow larger and larger. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I love how Psalm 46 addresses the feelings … Read More
