I just unpacked the last box from my most recent move—what a relief! After months of feeling overwhelmed, living in chaos, and having endless to-do lists running through my head, it’s finally finished. No one enjoys moving, but for me, it’s always been a particular thorn in my side. Unfortunately, I’ve become quite the expert […]

This article is part of our series on broken wells. In Gretchen’s new book, The Well-Watered Woman, chapter 5 is about “Forsaking Broken Wells.” We long for the living water that Jesus offers (John 4:10) but too often settle for empty wells and broken cisterns (Jer. 2:11-13). Gretchen explains, “We spend a lot of our […]

Sand snuggled up to my feet, covering them like a wet blanket. The frothy water rushed quickly over them, my feet sinking deeper into the soft ground as the wave receded. The sky burst with brilliant colors. It looked as if someone splattered pink and purple watercolors onto the clouds. Being outside of the everyday […]

At any given moment, you may find me listening to a podcast, working on my laptop, and eating a snack. Or I might be taking a walk with my son in the stroller, talking on the phone, and scrolling Instagram—all at the same time. How often do we pride ourselves on being able to do […]

It was a devastating and shocking loss, one that I am still processing daily. As you can imagine, this heart-wrenching goodbye ushered in […]

It feels like I’m always waiting for something: completing the fostering license process, going back to school, my husband finishing dental school, or going on the next vacation. Always Longing for Something  One of the most difficult waiting periods of my life was when […]

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that I share a lot about social media. I’ve wrestled with the use of technology and the ability it has to strip us of our passions and trip us with comparison. But I’ve also seen the potential it has to be used […]

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 […]

Love God, No Matter What Tomorrow is an important day in America. Thousands of folks across the nation will cast their vote for a new President. This election season has brought to light many fears and uncertainties that might have otherwise remained hidden but were likely there all along. I know I’ve had my fair […]

Approaching Your Pastor While listening to podcasts or reading books and blogs, you’re likely to come across something that doesn’t sit well. The source is Christian, but you’re unsure whether the idea presented is biblical or wise. Whom do you turn to with such questions? Friends? Social media? A trusted website? As a pastor, I […]
