I was ten years old when I first started keeping a journal. I’ll spare you the details of what I wrote in this first journal, but it was far from a Christ-centered record of life. The topics frequently covered were: the boys I liked, the friends I had, and what I did on that particular […]

Five Reasons to Journal Daily

Studying the Bible

Two years ago, while everyone was sipping their pumpkin spice lattes and taking pictures in pumpkin patches, I was at home sinking into a deep depression following a surgery that didn’t go as planned.

Dying Beautifully and Living Joyfully

Well-Watered Women

When my husband and I were first married we travelled to Hawaii for our honeymoon. As young explorers do, we set out to experience all Hawaii had to offer.

Well-Watered Women

Missional Laundry: Where the Gospel Meets the Mundane

Biblical Womanhood

She’s living my dream… I thought to myself as I scrubbed the carrots in my hand and started vigorously chopping them. My blood was pumping full speed with a surge of jealousy.

When She Is Living Your Dream

Well-Watered Women

Four years ago… I clicked “post” with trembling fingers and launched a vulnerable piece of my heart into the world: the Give Me Jesus Journal. This journal had been the culmination of years of striving in my walk with the Lord. I’d longed to know Him more deeply through the Word, but I just couldn’t […]
