I recently spoke with Pastor Paul from Hope Lutheran Church about Mental Health Awareness.
I honestly didn’t realize I was a morning person until I worked at a coffee shop after finishing college. I was often peppered with questions like “How many cups of coffee have you had this morning!?”, or “I’ll just have whatever Allen’s drinking!”. The thing is, most mornings I hadn’t even had a single cup yet!
On Uplifting Mornings, I may not be able to serve you a fresh cup of coffee (I’ll see what I can do if you come by the studio), but I can serve up joyful stories, encouraging conversation, and some Christly love and compassion!
When I’m not spending mornings with you, you’ll find me with my wonderful wife Lara, 3 year old son Sylvan, baby girl Samara, our Corgi Tucker, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Cricket, and our feisty cat named Riddle…it’s a blessedly busy household!
I had the chance to interview with Crystal Dunham, who is a counselor at Valley Christian Counseling Center, for Mental Health Awareness Month.
God is in this story - God is in the details - Even in the broken parts - He holds my heart, He never fails - When I’m at my weakest - I will trust in Jesus - Always in the highs and lows - The One who goes before me - God is in this story
Thank God for a choir singing - And a voice saying come back home - Saturday night looked like the end of the story - But thank God for Sunday morning
Cause I can feel it rising on the inside - A fire burning wild and bringing me to life - My God You’re so much more Than just a feeling - You are my healing - You are my healing
It’s in the empty tomb - It’s on the rugged cross - Your death-defying love - Is written in Your scars - You’ll never quit on me - You’ll always hold my heart - Cause that's the kind of God You are
