Wonder

Friday, 07 November 2014 by

Since we’ve been talking about Less Worry. More Wonder. this week, it seems like a great time to share “Wonder” by Amanda Cook and Bethel Music. The first time I heard this song, I fell in love with it. It is a beautiful song with a message that is so simple yet so profound.  

Practicing “Wonderstruck”

Thursday, 06 November 2014 by

Practicing “wonderstruck” can be easier said than done. I wrote yesterday’s blog post on a walk home from work early one morning in September. It is such a distinct memory.  I was walking along the street, thinking and praying to myself, when the idea came. I paused at the corner of 10th St. SE and

Less Worry. More Wonder.

Wednesday, 05 November 2014 by

Worry is a waste. Worry adds nothing to our lives (other than high blood pressure). The problem is, worry is an easy place to wander into. Our brains are wonderfully complex and capable of processing and interpreting so much data.  So when we don’t understand something or things don’t go as expected it’s easy to

Rock the Vote!

Tuesday, 04 November 2014 by

  The Wholehearted Chronicles isn’t really a space for politics…but I will say this! GO and Vote!  Your voice makes a difference. Then be vigilant in praying for your representation. “I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.

Hello Cupcake!

Monday, 03 November 2014 by

  Each year on this day, I try to have a little date with a cupcake. I figure a birthday is a good excuse to enjoy a little “Hello Cupcake” moment without regret or hesitation (#win)! But more than that, it’s a chance to say, “Hello New Year!” It’s also a chance to pause and

Difference Maker

I’m a fan! Okay, kind of a super fan of NEEDTOBREATHE! Last month, my friends and I got to go see NEEDTOBREATHE in concert (again!).  It was a seriously great show…truly inspired and inspiring. When Nathan (my husband) and I went to visit some of our best friends, who share our love of NEEDTOBREATHE, we,

Am I Creative?

Thursday, 30 October 2014 by

Have you ever asked yourself this question? Have you ever watched someone who is like a modern day Monet or Michelangelo and wondered to yourself…”If that’s creative…how can I be creative?” When we talk about creativity we often think of artistic creativity. Which means that if we don’t possess the traditional, artistic creative gifts, it

You Are Needed

If you are breathing and your heart is beating, then you have something wonderful and unique to offer the world. God has entrusted you with things only you can carry, things only you can do! So carry those things well. Learn to steward and extend your gifts. Engage with and rely on the team that

I love Team & Team Night!

Tuesday, 28 October 2014 by

Everywhere I look people are talking about “team.” Sure, it could just be the circles I run in…or it could be a beautiful trend emerging (I hope it’s the latter). I love “Team” and I am beyond thrilled to see worship bands and church creatives the world over beginning to embrace this idea of team

50 days

Monday, 27 October 2014 by

There is something really powerful about declaring the name of Jesus with this as your backdrop.   Nestled between the White House and the Washington Monument, there stands a tent where people have been worshiping day and night since September 15th. When it’s all said and done, 50 days of continuous praise and worship will have
