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 […]

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 […]

Doubt and Faith I believe doubt—particularly the deepest, most terrible kinds—are not spoken of enough. I understand this. For a long while, I didn’t share my doubts. For those of us in public ministry, it can feel as though we are not allowed to have them. But we are just as fallible as the next […]

A Choice to Trust Five years ago, I stood at the edge of a 30-foot wall with belts and ropes cinched around me as my boyfriend (now husband) coaxed me to step backward. “You can do this, Lara,” he said. “You’re going to be fine. It’s completely safe.” He and a fellow co-worker had convinced […]

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. […]

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 […]

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” […]

An Unusual Time This is a strange time we are living in, isn’t it? 2020 has been a year to remember, and we are only halfway through it. The beginning of the year overflowed with so much promise. We dreamed big dreams and planned big plans. When COVID-19 hit the US, there were moments of […]

The night before the cross, Jesus took his friends to a commonplace: the Garden of Gethsemane. He knew His suffering, humiliation, and death were near, but He didn’t hide. Instead, He prayed and asked His closest friends to pray with Him.  “And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, ‘My […]

Full-Blown Panic A few years ago I had my first full-blown panic attack. To say it caught me off-guard and knocked me off my feet would be an understatement. Until that point, I had lived life going 100 mph at all times, like a speeding train with no brakes. I learned the hard way in […]
