Alli Miller, Devotional Writer
Alli is a native Texan but calls Louisiana home. During the week she teaches English and video chats with her nephew. On the weekends you'll find her lacing up her tennis shoes for a run, her nose in a book learning more about her Redeemer and Friend, and writing Sunday lessons for the younger hearts at Living Hope Fellowship. Her heart is for encouraging others to taste and see that God is breathtakingly good to and through them.

Japan practices the art of “Kintsugi.” When pottery breaks, they don’t trash it. They gather the shards, gluing them back together, but not with an average, everyday glue. The binding agent is mixed with precious metals, platinum, gold, or silver. . .
In the educational field, there’s something known as a Pacing Guide. Students need certain skills and proficiencies by year’s end, so teachers plan backwards from end to start. Periodically, we’ll compare lessons to the Pacing Guide to make sure students are on track. . .
The sun sets early now. Today it’s even darker as the skies open, bringing wind and rain. The four year old’s school day ends and dad has come to take her home. He walks in, drenched, carrying a wad of pink. . .
The guardsman matches the picture to my face. He returns the passport, confirming if we’re Israeli we have correct permits for entry. What was mentioned in Micah 5:2 ESV as “too little,” is now a bustling city controlled by Palestine. . .
Have you ever asked, “God, what’s Your will for my life?” Take comfort you’re not alone. It actually shows up in the Bible repeatedly. There are many stories of people wanting to know the way for their lives.
