My children are in kindergarten and first grade this year. Earlier today, I was helping my kindergartener with some worksheets, and we tore one out to fold into a book. She confidently read each page aloud to me, proudly reading about digging, planting, pulling in the garden. I sat in awe, amazed that reading has come so easily to her and that she has already learned to find joy in it. Last year, when my son started reading, I wept. Yes, you read that correctly—I wept! It was my favorite milestone thus far; it touched me deeper than his first tooth, first steps, first word.

Paul David Tripp recently tweeted, Corporate worship is designed to cause you to run from the kingdom of self and run to the kingdom of God, to dethrone yourself and to give your life to celebrating and serving the King of Kings everywhere you are and in whatever you do. I couldn’t love this any more—it’s a poignant reminder of why Christian community is vital to the health of our souls.

Dearest friends, we have reached a major milestone here at Mundane Faithfulness: we have finished reposting all of Kara’s blog posts! As you know, at the end of Kara’s life, her original website broke beyond repair, so one of her wishes for Mundane Faithfulness was that we repost her content. It’s taken three and half years, many tears, and the love and encouragement of this beautiful community, but we have accomplished Kara’s goal, and I am so proud of us!! Thank you for being faithful readers, for praying for the MF team, for loving Kara and her family, and for being supportive friends.

Kara's Collection: Encouragement From Mickey

from an article originally posted March 19, 2015...

A few days ago, Mickey wrote this in a message to a few of us gals as we wrote back and forth, struggling with the impossible task of saying goodbye to our Kara. I thought it would encourage your hearts, too, as we all process this awful but hope-filled goodbye.
