Finding Purpose in Our Days As a single woman with a part-time job in a rural town, it’s all too easy to find myself subconsciously slipping into the belief that the things I do aren’t all that important.  “If your circumstances were different, your life would matter more,” this lie whispers on the worst of […]

An Unexpected Invitation “Hey, are you free if I stop by this afternoon? I’d love to talk something over with you…” I saw the text pop up from a friend in the middle of a morning that was less-than-amazing. I had been up a good part of the night with my baby, so I was […]

From Dark to Life One of our favorite things to do as a family is growing a garden. But the vegetables, flowers, and fruits won’t grow right away. We have to tend the tiny seeds first, planting them in tiny planters in our sunroom. Often, we use old egg cartons. Our family will fill the […]

Hopeful Brokenness I’m reflecting on the recent death of a beloved sister in Christ, in awe of the beautifully hopeful brokenness in this unexpected event. All I saw during the weeks following this loss was a body of believers coming together to carry the burden, to pour truth into one another, and rejoice in the […]

Unknown Circumstances I was four weeks away from graduating from college. While most seniors were living up their last days of pre-real-world bliss, I was facing the hardest decision of my life so far. Internships, interviews, and job offers had collided in the best and worst of ways, and I had one week to make […]

Disordered Eating Every time I try to write this post, I feel inadequate because I struggle with the topic of food—every single day. For the longest time, I believed I would never struggle with an eating disorder because I just love food too much. I couldn’t imagine going an entire day without it. I still […]

strength and weakness One of my greatest weaknesses is that I believe “I can do it all.” I want to be able to work a full-time job, work over 20 hours at my part-time job, volunteer, host dinners at our place, coordinate events, start student organizations, translate blogs/videos, pursue graduate school full-time, and be a […]

transition and conflict I remember the overwhelming confliction of being renewed, yet not knowing what to do with that truth. I remember feeling the conviction of who I was now—a child of God—but not sure what that meant. I had been saved by God’s grace alone, but I was alone, without community. I pushed through […]

the idol factory “An idol is anything that is central in my life, anything that seems to be essential. Anything by which I live or depend.” D. M. Lloyd-Jones Theologian John Calvin said that the heart is a “perpetual factory of idols.” We are constantly looking for things to worship, and making the good things […]

Growing up in the church, I often heard about the fruit of the Spirit and could list them off to you, but I had never gone through each virtue and studied them in light of the gospel. As I wrote this study with my sister, Kara Holmes, God opened my eyes to realize this truth: […]
