Around the Supper Table


We gather around our supper table daily to share with family. Not only do we enjoy the hugs and laughter, but it gives us an opportunity to share our journey with each other so that we can strengthen and encourage one another.

We have created this blog in hopes that our struggles, and sometimes revelations, can help you. We know that life can be difficult, but it is only through Him that we “live, and move, and have our being . . .” as stated in Acts 17:28. He hasn’t taken our struggle from us, but He has given us purpose in our struggles that we may help each other. We appreciate feedback and prayer requests.

In Matthew 11:28-30 it reminds us to, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

It is easy to know that I need Christ when life is hard, but what about when life is easy?  There are times when I realize that I can’t keep going or overcome on my own, so I ask for..... Read More

Around the Supper Table #82 – God’s Promises

How do you know what God has promised you?  I talk a lot about promises or knowing what God has told you, and I know how hard it can be to know either of these things. Our feelings and emotions..... Read More

Around the Supper Table #81 – Stand and Know

I was editing a video to be posted on social media, and someone thanked me for editing out the part that didn’t flatter them.  Not to say that our social media posts aren’t edited and cropped to portray an idyllic..... Read More

Around the Supper Table #80 – He Cares for Me

I finally wrapped up my last week of college courses and believe me, relieved is an understatement. This past fall was a battle to say the least. It was overwhelming and, at many times, I didn’t think I would be..... Read More

Around the Supper Table #79 – The Cost of Friendship

Check the box, ring the bell, I walked to the front of the church, prayed the sinner’s prayer, and was baptized shortly thereafter. I can remember the feel of the conviction to give my heart to Christ like it was..... Read More

Around the Supper Table #78 – Wait on God

I think that sometimes whenever God says, “Not right now,” it’s almost more difficult than a “No.”  I’m a very all-or-nothing person.  I’ve always been like that, so when God says, “Not right now.  Wait.” I really struggle. It’s like..... Read More
