Holy Ever After

“Marriage is designed for us to live holy ever after and not happily ever after.” My pastor, Shawn Smith at SouthCrest Church, challenged the congregation today concerning our relationships. He refuses to allow us to settle for anything other than being “set apart, different, and unique” because only then will our lives, our marriages, glorify … [Read more…]

Do Not Be Anxious About Anything

It is unsettling to come off of a restful weekend and allow a glance at your schedule for the week to come overwhelm you. I see all good things. In the past our good things could exist together. I intentionally pray over each designated slice of time and see the value for my family in … [Read more…]

How Great is Our God?

My black and white personality appreciates the spunkiness of more colorful personalities. I take things literally while light-hearted personalities seem to enjoy more adventuresome paths of life. I ususally guess the punchline of jokes in advance, yet I don’t laugh as hard as everyone else. My admiration of an animated laugh and carefree spirit attempts … [Read more…]

What Are You Hoping For?

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.  Hebrews 11:1 “Mom, if I could ask for anything and it would just appear in my hands, I would ask for an iphone right now. What would you ask for?” I love Christian’s questions. I see his … [Read more…]

Moving Day: Come See My New Home

Blogger/Blogspot was the home for my writing journey I began more than six months ago. With the help of my friend, Kim Harman from K Harman Designs, we created a new home to share my stories yet to be written. From this point on I will be posting here at kaseyhanson.com. I hope you will continue to journey … [Read more…]

God Knows Your Name

It’s hard to be cool and nervous at the same time. Christian almost pulled it off on his first day of school. With his opening football scrimmage approaching that evening, Christian entered his fifth grade classroom and located his assigned seat. His classmates quickly informed him that he is welcome to sit at that particular … [Read more…]

All In God’s Strength

There is something nosey about faith in Jesus Christ. While it continues to grow deeply personal, it refuses to remain safely private. Even the most introverted of believers look into the lives of others and want to interrupt their journey without God. We want more for them than life apart from the presence of God because … [Read more…]

Why Write? – A Blog Hop

There is nothing like linking arms with like-minded friends. I had the chance to do just that at the She Speaks conference last weekend where the leaders of Proverbs 31 ministry encouraged, refocused, and equipped us to be who God is calling us to be as writers and believers.  Today, I am answering a few … [Read more…]

How to Develop a Thirst for God

“Mom, my third grade teacher had a picture of a glass with water in it by her door. Underneath the picture it said, ‘Some say the glass is half empty, but I say it is half full.’ I don’t understand. What does that mean?” I love one-on-one time with my son in the car. His … [Read more…]

When Our “Get To” Pleases God

“This is how you hold your nose when you are baptized.” “I am not sure about getting baptized. I don’t want to get my hair wet.” “John the Baptist was Jesus’s cousin? I wouldn’t let my cousin baptize me.” A straight face should be listed as a needed skill for a second grade life group … [Read more…]
