Anchored Printable: Ecclesiastes 3:11

The older I get, the more time seems to slip by so quickly. I feel like I’ve blinked and another school year has flown by. There never seems to be enough time to do all the things I’d like to do. It’s a precious commodity in which I have to decide how to prioritize and…

Anchored Printable: James 1:2-4

Let’s face it: life ebbs and flows, back and forth, between mountain peaks and valleys. It’s good, it’s messy, and it can be sometimes just plain hard. This month’s print reminds us that as Jesus followers, we are called to persevere, even when what we can manage looks like a slow, slow crawl, dragging ourselves…

Anchored Printable: John 10:10

Abundance and a full, vibrant life, work together simultaneously in my mind. Vibrant abundance is the life that Jesus calls us to enter into. We are no longer suppressed, subdued, silenced, or shamed. We are not floundering foolishly, nor frantically fleeing. We are anchored in possibility. Our yeses and amens align with God’s Word, and…

Jesus as Shepherd

It’s Spring time in Oregon. The grass is a vibrant, glossy green. Daffodils are bursting through the earth with intense yellowy colors. As I was driving along country roads the other day, I noticed the life stirring. The sheep were out to pasture, and the newly birthed lambs were frolicking near their mothers. Everything appears…

Anchored Printable: Proverbs 28:1

When you think about a lion, what image comes to mind? Does the lion seem meek, mild, or mute? Does the lion seem worried about where food may come from? Does the lion anxiously wonder who his friends are and if they really like him? Absolutely not! Lions fret over very little. They are powerful….

My One Word for 2019: NOW

When the founder of Anchored Voices, Chara Donahue, encouraged a few of us friends to think and pray about #oneword365, I didn’t realize the story that God would start to unfold slowly over the years. In 2016, when Chara asked us for our words, I prayed and the word that kept coming up repeatedly was…

A Gathering Prayer

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, meaning Christmas is nearing as well. If you are graciously hosting a holiday event this season, take a moment to whisper this prayer to Jesus, a man who loved to gather all sorts of people together around His table. When the turkey turns out less than desirable, or you…

Anchored Printable: John 8:32

The world looks beautiful as the ground is blanketed by leaves, and trees stubbornly hold to modest decoration, but nothing is as gorgeous as truth that sets free. As you enjoy the beauty of fall, it is our prayer that you also rest in the truth that Jesus lived the perfect life, died, and rose…

Raising Disciples

As a Christian, anytime the word “home” is mentioned, I tend to think long-term, as in our heavenly “home”. But what do we do with the time we’ve been given right now? What should our earthly home look like? As my friends and siblings are beginning their own families, I fondly remember the home I…
