How are you and your family going to bless your pastor this month? 

I'm Tauna! This is me: Jesus follower, wife, mom, [domestically challenged] homemaker, homeschooler, and writer. Join me at, where I work to bring you encouragement and tools for the journey. Let us pursue God's call on our lives (no matter the learning curve) and rely on Him to equip us for the task!


  1. Thank you for the printables and great ideas!

  2. Thank you, Tauna!
    I love your site. Just came across it this morning. Beautiful ideas. Our pastor is really the best. He does not conform to the “world view” of Christianity nor sugar coat it nor try to make it “user friendly”. I know not enough truly listen when he counsels them and he serves some who are down right abusive, but he remains faithful to God’s will and Jesus’ command to go forth and tell the good news. I pray God gives him strength, encouragement, and renewal each and every day. I know he speaks what God has told him because there are sooo many things that I have asked or wondered about and miracle of miracles, his sermon explains them. It amazes me how many times I’ve read a scripture and not really understood it’s meaning or implications, but then, WHAM! It’s made clear. GOD IS AWESOME!!!

  3. Hey, thanks for sharing about my “mint” gift for pastor appreciation! I need to remember to get something together for our pastoral staff before this month is over!
