loneliness

Have you ever felt left out? Excluded? Maybe even abandoned? Whether it’s a childhood best friend who suddenly dumped you, a high school romance that went awry, a parent who walked out, or a husband who broke his vows, most of us have experienced some form of abandonment. And in that moment, it can feel […]

This article is part of the Preach the Gospel to Yourself Article Challenge. We know that phrases like “preach the gospel to yourself” are used so frequently in Christian circles that they can become Christian gobbly gook. You kind of get what it means, but don’t know how to actually do it. This series of […]

I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life when I graduated high school. I’d always talked about being a writer and an artist when I grew up. But the thought of choosing a specific college or career path felt overwhelming. So I made the choice to live at home and study […]

Church can feel like an add-on to our weeks. We’ve already invested so much time in going to Tuesday morning moms’ group, writing in our journals and following our inductive studies, listening to podcasts and sermons in the car, humming worship music while scrubbing dishes, and teaching our children the classic Bible stories during family […]

A New Kind of Loneliness Early last year, I found myself feeling deep pangs of loneliness—again. I talked about it with my husband and my mom, lamenting a social life everyone but me seemed to have. I’m the kind of girl who has numerous friends and connections. I have lived in the same town and […]

Cocooning At Home It was a trying time—an isolating season. But as advised, we pulled away from all of our normal social activities and gatherings. We stayed at home day after day, avoiding big groups of people and only going out when necessary. We spent about eight weeks in this unique season called “cocooning.” You […]

An Unprecedented, Unexpected Time Today is my fifth day at home and counting. My social interactions have been limited to my husband, my cat, and friends and family online. But even these interactions have been limited because I find myself overwhelmed by the amount of information sent my way. The constant news and constant updates […]

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 […]

Loving Others, Yourself and the Lord The key to loving others well isn’t learning to love yourself first. I know, I know. That’s not what you’re hearing from the world right now, but it’s true. As good as it may sound, loving yourself first isn’t the answer.  Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like […]

A New Mindset “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”  (Isaiah 55:8–9) Wait, child. The phrase spoken into my situation after I talked […]
