Happy Ash Wednesday! A day that frequently tends to sneak up on me. Unlike Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s day, or even Groundhog’s day, Fat Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and Easter wander around February, March, and April, making it difficult for me to keep up.
One of our favorite past speakers, Katherine Wolf, has a brand new book out this month with her husband, Jay: Suffer Strong: How to Survive Anything by Redefining Everything.
Lent, we meet again. My experiences from Lent have included a wide array of sentiments and experiences, from using it merely as a way to shed a few pounds before summer to using it as a season to dig into more of who God is and deepen my relationship with Him.
We absolutely LOVED welcoming Rebekah Lyons to Virginia Beach last fall! We wanted to pop on here to let you know about her podcast that she and her husband, Gabe host called Rhythms for Life.
We are wild about a classic wedge salad, and we love this recipe.

As a young girl, I always looked forward to the first day of school with great anticipation. I'm not one for change, but a new school year meant new teachers, new classmates, new school supplies, and most importantly, new school clothes! Not to mention, each year, you returned older and wiser--each new year, you moved up one more notch on the the food chain.
Happy Fall, Y'all!! Ready for "pumpkin everything," crisp air, and cozying up with a good book! We know just the thing!
This fall, two of our favorite past Changing Seasons speakers, Jeannie Cunnion and Sara Hagerty each released new books that you MUST check out. Seriously, they're a must!
Fall is a GREAT time to jump into a new Bible Study and Changing Seasons Virginia Beach has compiled a robust list of several studies nearby. The churches and many Bible studies are hyperlinked, so be sure to check them out below!
I’m not sure what the weather’s like in your corner of the world, but in our little corner of Virginia Beach, we've had a string of dreary, weary, rainy days.
The kind that makes you want to crawl back into bed and sleep for the rest of the day, because it’s so dark, you can’t even differentiate the difference between day and night.
The kind that make you yawn just by looking out the window.
Feeling tired? Overwhelmed? In need of a break? Anybody feeling a little spontaneous?? We've got just the thing!
One of our most well-loved Changing Seasons speakers, Lincee Ray, is heading to Kitty Hawk THIS weekend, for the Galilee Women's Retreat! Grab some friends for a last-minute getaway and be encouraged by Lincee's insights on what it looks like to truly desire God.
Last fall, we had the privilege and JOY of welcoming Katherine Wolf to Virginia Beach for our fall luncheon. In case you missed it, be sure to check it out!
“You crown the year with Your good blessings, and You leave abundance in Your wake.”
Psalm 65:11 (NET)

There is a story in the Bible that showcases the attributes of two sisters. It consists of only five verses, yet so much is packed into this particular moment in history. In fact, these verses are so notorious that their content still makes some women fired up today. It’s the story of Martha and Mary.
Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.
For busy, on-the-go women (which, let's be honest, is pretty much all of us), it can be hard to find time to sit down and actually open up the Bible. Ironically, when life is at its craziest, busiest time, that's when we need God the most.
We've got Valentine's Day on our minds and we wanted to share a few of our favorite Bible verses that underscore the depth of God's love. Truly, there is no amount of candy, cards, roses or chick flicks that will ever compare to the unfailing love of God.
Several years ago, I was on the hunt for the perfect dress to wear to my brother's wedding. Never mind the bride, what in the world was the S.O.G. going to wear?! (sister of the groom)
I don't know about you, but for me, I have such a hard time scheduling out everything in my life that needs to be done. In the world of never ending to-do lists, there are areas in my life where I've convinced myself that I need at least 1-2 hours to actually make it worth while: cleaning my house, exercising, spending time with God, writing thank you notes….the list could go on and on.
