A Deeper Gratitude Every Thanksgiving, the tradition of going around the table and proclaiming thanks one by one leaves me feeling frustrated. Why does this practice feel empty and insufficient to me? I think it’s because thankfulness, as a sinner-made-saint, demands an understanding of gratitude far beyond a last-minute toss-up. And so I search my […]

Gratitude Guards our Souls

Heart Check

Knowing the Bible My earliest memories of religious life begin at the tender age of two. I sang my first song in a small Baptist church before I had learned how to spell. My mama was our church organist and my grandmama was the pianist. As you can imagine, attending church was a pretty normal […]

The Dangers of Not Knowing the Bible

Studying the Bible

Overwhelmed With Debt It started out slow. A shopping day here, a weekend trip there, and then it got out of hand. No matter what I did or how much money I threw at them, the numbers only got bigger. And scarier. About six months ago, I confessed to my community group that I was […]

What Debt Taught Me About the Gospel

Gospel in the Mundane

God’s Goodness in Hard Seasons “Everything about my life feels hard.”  I spoke these words to a friend and I wasn’t being dramatic or seeking to gain her pity. It’s just the reality of living through my husband’s second deployment this year, caring for our six children on my own, and handling the challenges of […]

Love God, Love Others, No Matter What

Fear

No Filter Faith She’s got her fancy journaling Bible and her special pens. She finds the best obscure theologian quotes to post with the most down-to-earth captions. It seems she has been running an online ministry since she finished college. Maybe she’s Gretchen or maybe she’s your childhood best friend or maybe she’s your pastor’s […]

A #NoFilter Faith and Sanctification

Faith

Jesus and My Past Sometimes my past haunts me. I’ve been a believer for nearly ten years and barely recognize the woman I was before Jesus plucked me out of darkness and gave me a new heart. Yet, in the quiet hours of the night when sleep is nowhere to be found, I see her. […]

Jesus Is My Only Plea

Grace

Toxic or Not? In my previous blog post, I identified what a toxic person is, according to Scripture. The word “toxic” is often used indiscriminately to describe relationships, but Christians need to be careful that our terms line up with Scripture.  As important as it is to correctly identify a toxic person, it’s equally important […]

What a Toxic Relationship is Not

Discernment

What Is Toxic? I’ve seen and heard a word floating around increasingly the past couple of years describing others: toxic. It is used to describe friendships and romantic relationships and family dynamics. In essence, it’s another way of saying a relationship is really unhealthy or dangerous.  But here’s the problem: the definition of what a […]

Toxic Relationships and Scripture

Discernment
