Janet and I began Coffee Cup Friends in 2005 as a creative way to share life with our families and friends. Never in our wildest dreams did we believe it would go into so many countries around the world and touch the lives of so many. God is awesome good! Janet later moved on to pursue other venues that she […]

If I live in a house of spotless beauty with everything in its place, but have not love, I am a housekeeper ~ not a homemaker. If I have time for waxing, polishing and decorative achievements but have not love, my children learn of cleanliness not godliness. Love leaves the dust in search of a […]

I know not by what methods rare, But this I know, God answers prayer. I know that He has given His Word, Which tells me prayer is always heard, And will be answered, soon or late. And so I pray and calmly wait. I know not if the blessing sought Will come in just the […]

Rachel Elizabeth

Holiness is being so happy in God that sin loses all appeal. – Unknown Rachel squeals with laughter as I run my fingers along her ribs. Her eyes scrunch into half-moons of delight and her cheeks flush pink as we play on the floor. Never in my life have I seen such an exquisitely happy […]

The Backseat Driver

“Jesus never measured His life by how or where He was of the greatest use. God places His saints where they will bring the most glory to Him, and we are totally incapable of judging where that may be.” – Oswald Chambers “Christian contentment is the direct fruit of having no higher ambition than to […]
