Do you want to learn how to ENJOY God's Word? Has it been a while and you need the motivation to pick up your Bible and dig in? Or maybe you have a habit formed but you find yourself stuck in a rut? If so youre not alone!! Ive found myself in all three places most recently feeling really blah about my studies. Sometimes we just need a faith-filled prayer and a small adjustment to breath fresh life into our time with God. If youre ready to learn how to ENJOY Gods Word more today I invite…
Boom. #sermon #trust
Today is our first Sunday at our new church Grand Island Baptist Church. Chris officially starts work tomorrow and will preach his first sermon next week. So today we simply attend service. Im excited join the church today begin getting to know our new family and serve alongside of them in the years to come. Yet my heart today is in Kentucky and the church family we left behind.

Our home for the next two weeks. We dont close on our new house until the end of the month so we had to find a place to stay for the interim. Im looking forward to two weeks of slow after several months of cra-zi-ness. This wasnt our original plan but our God who always knows best provided what we didnt know we would need. #orrtreks
Serious study in as little as 15 minutes a day! For real!! My life is up-side-down and in boxes and it would be easy to give up on Bible study through the chaos. Yet over time Ive realized that Gods Word can be enjoyed even amidst crazy seasons and busy schedules. As I learned to let go of the paralysis of perfection pick up my Bible and use a simple yet powerful study method Ive come to focus on quality over quantity. Consistency over ideals. Enjoyment over obligation. You can too! My…
Last glance. With each of our moves Ive taken a picture right before I lock the door and close it for the last time. Typically its a completely bare hallway. But this move has been so odd with us leaving the bulk of our stuff behind for the movers to take care of. (SO grateful!) It doesnt seem quite like goodbye ... but our keys have been handed over 700 exhausting miles have been traveled and tomorrow we wake to begin a new chapter. #orrtteks

Feeling all the feels. This has been the week of lasts. Last Bible study. Last play date. Last school lunch with friends. Last girls night. This Sunday will be our last church service at Pioneer. There is sadness and loss for what and who we are leaving behind. There is hope and excitement for all that awaits us in Florida. There is a great joy in experiencing our God who is faithfully guiding and sustaining us in all the details. There is a deep peace in knowing that our sovereign and…

Thankful for the Kentucky Baptist Convention leadership and their faithful investment in KBC pastors and their wives! Amidst a crazy emotional season Im enjoying a refreshing weekend of teaching worship and S P A C E. I love how theyve built in so much time into the schedule to just be. Its been an honor to get to teach from the Word for the ladies session and share training through the #FOCUSed15 method. #ILoveMyJob #MyVoiceIsShot
