    The Sneaky Scheme™

    The Sneaky Scheme™

    In this episode of Ordinary Matters, we open with a story we love about The Sneaky Scheme™ of our daughters. It sets the table for our conversation about the gift of God’s forgetfulness, the invitation to bring our mess to him, the peculiar joy of confession, and also the role of attachment and the presence of God. We hope our thoughts help you discern the presence of God in your ordinary life.
