Breathe + Lent in the Psalms

Breathe

A Confusing Valentine’s Day Our first married Valentine’s was a bust. Let me rephrase that. Our first married Valentine’s didn’t go as I expected. And in turn, I found myself disappointed and let down in a pretty significant way. When I look back on that day eight years ago, I smile at how much could […]

Valentine’s and Unmet Expectations

Relationships

A Solid Foundation When my husband and I were house shopping, we fell in love with two houses simultaneously. Each met our checklist for the price, location, and pictures we viewed on the realty website. We quickly called the agent and booked showings.  The first house was solid. It was evident the builder had a […]

Foundational Truths for the Discerning Woman, Part 2

Discernment

Forming and Understanding Beliefs I believed whatever professing Christians taught me growing up in church and youth group. They claimed to be believers, they had studied Scripture, and a few of them had degrees from Bible schools. Why shouldn’t I trust them? I knew to beware of false teachers, but I assumed they would be […]

Becoming a Discerning Woman, Part One

Discernment

The Fear of Anxiety As I lie on my bed, an onslaught of thoughts and worries barrage my mind like a broken dam.

Breathe in Mercy, Breathe out Worry

Prayer

Checking Boxes and Quiet Times They handed me a spiral-bound notebook and a Bible reading plan and told me to read my Bible for 30 minutes every day. Each day’s reading included two questions to answer. So, like a good little rule-follower, I did what they said. From seventh grade through my senior year of […]

Studying God’s Word in Community

Studying the Bible

Back to Jesus It was an all-out fight to focus during my quiet time. Thoughts flooded my mind—worries, fears, questions, unresolved ideas, pressing tasks. I couldn’t read the words before me in my Bible. Time flew by like a rocket. I spent the time trying to wrangle my attention while counting down the minutes to […]

Every Distraction a Detour Back to Jesus

Confession and Repentance

The Book Above Every Other Book Nearly 130 million books exist so far in this world1, but only one Book has living qualities. Only one has been breathed out by the God of the universe. This book is the Bible. The Bible is the ageless, unchanging, life-altering Word of God. It is written by human […]

Study the Bible with Gospel Glasses

Studying the Bible

Truth and Reality One of my goals this year is to read every Pulitzer Prize fiction award winner of the last decade. A great story has become a reprieve from my normal nonfiction reading. It allows me to get lost in a world that is not my own. Often, I find the characters compellingly familiar […]

God’s Word: a Balm of Truth for a Misguided World

Studying the Bible

The Story of Scripture The span of history covered by Scripture is both long and wide. At times it can feel overwhelming trying to take it all in and remember who is whom and what happened when. A neat aspect of studying the Bible, however, is that this vast narrative becomes smaller with the individuals […]
