I can’t believe this is our last week of the year! Thank YOU for journeying with me through His word and allowing me to share from my heart. I pray He continues to draw you to Himself and into His word in 2022. He truly is our treasure, friends! 

Just in case you missed it, I will not be continuing the devotional into 2022! I will be busy writing my next book (ahh!) and am so excited for the opportunity to trust God, again, to make much out of my little. I am also praying I can make this devotional available in print down the road and will keep you posted.

Let’s stay in touch in 2022, ok? I’ll have email updates from time to time, and also have some fun things planned for social media.

Grace and peace to you and yours,

Katie

“Here I am,” said Moses, and could we? Maybe we don’t get to see a burning bush but if we open our eyes to really look, if we open our ears and our hearts to really listen, we will hear the God who calls our name out to us – “Beloved, Beloved!”

After a really full week of work, I decided to use my writing time this week to snuggle my babies instead. The good news for us is that I fully believe God’s Spirit-breathed Word speaks for itself.
