A Change of Plans 2020 has not been what anyone expected. When I wrote down my dreams for this year on January 1st, it did not involve a global pandemic or worldwide unrest. We are over halfway through the year. But chances are, you’re feeling tired, soul-weary, and a little offbeat. As I’ve dug deep […]

Pressing Pause to Press Into Jesus

Word Before World

I made a surprising find this week when I opened the drawers of my son’s dresser. Suddenly, it became apparent how he was managing to keep his room so tidy. Everything he owned was jammed into those drawers! As I sat on the floor folding and sorting, I was reminded of how easy it is […]

Ridding Hypocrisy from Our Lives

Confession and Repentance

Constant Change I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with change. There are changes I enjoy, like traveling or moving to a new place and taking in its culture, quirks, and idiosyncrasies. But feeling lonely and not knowing how to get to the grocery store in my new hometown or village? Those changes make me squirm. […]

A Changing World and Unchanging God

Change

When Plans Change Ah, summertime. The days are endless and the sun is plentiful. The heat is constant and the routine is … lacking?

Finding Joy in the Word

Joy

I knew I had to drink more water. My skin was dry, my stomach was queasy, and I had more headaches than usual. I bought a planner with a monthly habit tracker and set a goal of drinking two bottles of water each day. But the boxes on my habit tracker didn’t get checked as […]

Gospel and Law for Ordinary Life

Gospel in the Mundane

An Unusual Birthday Today I turn 31, and today I should be delivering our third baby. It’s a strange feeling to celebrate life and mourn death on the same day. I remember it like it was yesterday. We’d gone to church that morning, and as I sat in the back, I felt a bit “off” […]

The Day Death Entered My Womb

Motherhood

The brutal murder of George Floyd marked the first time in a long time that evil made me physically sick to my stomach. Similar to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping through our nation, this hatred is news we can no longer tune out. It’s a reality our friends and loved ones are protesting in quiet neighborhoods, […]

Love Is Worth the Risk

Racial Reconciliation

Not What I Planned My twenties have not gone according to my plan. So far, my post-grad years have been absent of a fiancé turned husband, a house turned home, and bump-dates turned babies. Though I have the picturesque Goldendoodle, I’ve found myself mourning these common milestones—especially as others receive these blessings on what seems […]

The Root of Disappointment

Contentment

Exposing the Truth During this worldwide pandemic, it seems to many like the world has stopped. We have experienced a level of uncertainty no one could have fully prepared for. It seems as though all of the things people could so easily sweep under the rug are now exposed.  When I saw the attack of […]
