I have a minute.
One I could fill with all sorts of things.
There is laundry to be done, a book to be written, endless organizing and list making to satisfy the OCD in me.
But my soul can’t take it anymore.
I need a minute.
Sometimes we just don’t want to sit in our thoughts. We don’t want to ponder the deep questions or access the pain. But we can honor ourselves by going there.
I need a minute.
I am pondering who God is in the midst of suffering, where God is in the midst of suffering. And why suffering?
I’m not really looking for answers.
I am just sitting with the questions, the uncertainty, the anger, the disappointment with God.
I just need a minute.
We don’t have to have it all right.
It's not about the answers.
It’s about the questions, the exploring.
The faith that God will remain no matter what I am wrestling.
I just need a minute. How about you?
What do you need with the minute you have? -Lizz Enns Petters

Join Our Private Facebook Community and GET THIS special Live Q&A with Lizz & Esther (or the recording if you can't make the specific date and time). You can access this by supporting us on our PATREON platform.
Lizz & Esther have just been published in a book titled Deconstructing Hell, where we unpack parenting and deconstructing as it relates to eternal conscious torment, the traditional view of hell.
We will be sharing our thoughts and answering questions about how the belief in hell is toxic for us and our kids!
But we won't stop there. We'll chat about ways to parent with "hell off the table."
Come join us HERE!
Lizz and Esther are Contributing Authors in the Coolest Book (with the Coolest Cover)
Deconstructing Hell is OUT and READY to be devoured and takes dead aim at one of the most destructive doctrines of Church history: the doctrine of eternal suffering for the non-believer.
Lizz's chapter is titled, "A Gospel of Hope" (a gentle parenting approach to deconstructing hell) and Esther's chapter is titled, "Pushed by Fear or Led by Love?" (raising children with a gospel of value and dignity vs. fear). We joined 14 other authors (way more famous than us with lots of letters after their names), and have this book in our hands right now! We are thankful for Chad Bahl for putting it all together for us! Check it out more HERE!
Kids will “root” for Mariposa as they learn that we are ALL created with purpose and love. Deconstructing mamas will be happy to find resources that they feel comfortable sharing with their little ones!🥰
All net proceeds from this book will be donated to Our House in Little Rock, AR. Our House is a non-profit dedicated to empowering families and individuals who are homeless or near-homeless. To learn more visit ourhouseshelter.org.

One last thing. We want to remind you that we are so glad you are here. We wouldn't be the same without you. You will always find GRACE for where you've been and who you are now, and SPACE for who you are becoming and will be.
Carry on, our new-found friends. Welcome to the twisty-windy, full -of-adventure faith path that's laid out before us all. Love,
Lizz & Esther
