In Over My Head

I am WAY in over my head. What am I doing?   There is so much to do for the kingdom. So many people to reach. So many hearts to be transformed. What am I doing?   I think of the ways God has used me, and the divine appointments he has set up, and think, “Wow, God used someone like me to touch the heart of his child. There is so much more to do!”   It becomes overwhelming when you think about the big picture. But God is telling me to focus on the person in front o

Maundy Thursday Resources for 2015

Today I am focusing on resources for Maundy Thursday, the day before Good Friday, which commemorates Jesus’ last Supper with the disciples and the institution of the Eucharist. Its name of “Maundy” comes from the Latin word mandatum, meaning “command.”This stems from Christ’s words in John 13:34, “A new commandment I give unto you. Love one another as I have loved you”. Many of […]

Reconciled to the Image of God

What kind of God do I believe in? This is the question that has revolved in my mind since I read Richard Rohr’s Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi. He claims that Francis had a a strong maternal concept of God. Like many of us, I grew up with very patriarchal images of […]

You can be apart of this journey!!

Hello! My name is Jessica Morice and I just want to let you know about some exciting things that are going on in my life. I currently attend Regent University and am studying to receive a bachelor’s degree in International Studies. As well as being a part-time student and a part-time worker, I am a woman of God. Lately, God has revealed to me that there is more to life than living luxuriously. God has called me to an epic life of experiencing Him; however, the question is: am I willin

Pick a Number, Any Number!!!

Hey all you awesome supporters out there!! I have a fundraising opportunity for you!  It. Is. So. Simple.  I promise!  Pick a number, any number.  It can be your lucky number, your favorite number, or a number of significance and donate that amount to my race fund.  So if you take #24 then you donate $24.00 to my fund!  You can pick multiple numbers, get a group together and pick an entire row, or pick every number on the chart (just kidding, but you could!).  

The Healing Room

It was well over 100 degrees and humid, and the tiny room was packed from wall to wall. The florescent lighting and whitewashed plasterboard was devoid of all color, and instead cast shadows over the masses of sick and hurting people lining the floor. Walking through the doors gave me that nauseous sensation I feel every time I enter a nursing home. These desperate people traveled a long way to be here, even though they wouldn't be visited by any doctors. Today they awaited an appointment with t

Celebrating Holy Week With Kids – Resources for 2015

Easter Sunday is the central celebration of our faith yet I struggle more and more because it seems to me that what begins with triumphant shouts of Christ is Risen Alleluiah, and a beautiful flowering of the cross ends with an easter egg hunt. “It’s great to see the kids so enthusiastic.” people tell me, but is it […]

United by Love Not Doctrine

A couple of days ago, with the help of a couple of friends, I planted the early vegetable garden with cauliflowers, cabbages, broccoli, lettuce, Chinese greens, and carrots. I use the square foot method – lots of diversity close together for maximal yield and minimal pest control. I start with well composted soil and try to […]

Being sure in the unsure (with a tribute to "the route that neVer was")

So. Here I am. The excitement building. Plans in the making. Relationships forming. Count down to training camp. Count down to July when I launch. Mentally preparing for all my fundraising and equipment needing to be bought. E-mail received. Everything changes.    I'm not going to lie, when I received that e-mail telling me that my original route did not have enough people signed up to launch in July on route 5, I was extremely disappointed. I had already formed friendships with the
