Who is Invited to the Table?

Posted on

A year ago when we sold our house and stuff and embarked on this journey as The Graveswolds, God put two words on my heart: GATHER and TABLE. I said, “Really, Lord!? You are teaching us about hospitality, but we don’t even have a house OR A TABLE?!” And He said, “You don’t need those […]

What Imprisons You?

(*Warning, if you watch this video, you might cry. Here are the lyrics) I’m wrecked by this video. Like, I’m choking tears back in this public space I’m calling my office today. This song has been on repeat for more than a year now…along with the rest of the epic album, but I guess some […]
