The Discipline of Remembering

This morning I called my mom for a quick chat and she reminded me that this week was “a bit of an important week…do you remember what happened this week?” Although this kind of conversation is rather typical, I responded that, no, I could not recall the importance of the dates ahead of me, and she proceeded to remind me of two wedding anniversaries, two birthdays and, most importantly, 7/11 day (where you get free Slurpees from 7/11…

A season of discontentment

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound.

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. – Phil 4:11-13 What are you thankful for this year? We are entering a season in…

Imitators of Christ

We Imitate What We See Every morning around 6 am I hear the soft thud of four-year-old feet hitting the ground, the creak of a bedroom door, and the secretive steps of one of my girls creeping down the hallway to surprise me. A brown-haired head pokes above the arm of the sofa I sit upon and I gasp in mock surprise as my quiet time with the Lord comes to an end.  Every morning, my daughters come…

Jesus Asked “Why?” And We Can Too

The question is a human question. It’s what we ask when we face suffering. When we watch our loved ones get sick. When a marriage falls apart. Why? Perhaps we ask the question because we sense that if we could only know more—the logic, the explanation, the ultimate payoff for this current suffering—then we might be able to endure our circumstances better, with grace, maybe even joy.  When I climb a mountain with my husband, I know how…

Hi there, I’m Anne. I started Daily Discipleship because I want believers to daily grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus. I am a wife to Andrew, a mother of twin girls, a writer, and theologian-in-training. After studying theology and counseling at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, I spent six years teaching, discipling, and coaching women at Harvard College with Christian Union. Now, I am fortunate enough to live in the mountains and be a writer. Thanks for stopping by.
