College

The Best is Yet to Come College is such an interesting season of life because you never really know what’s around the next corner. Those years have a funny way of making it feel like your whole life is up in the air, hinging on your next exam, your acceptance into a certain program, or […]

Shining the Light of Christ This Halloween: When we choose to instead close our doors and turn off the lights, we miss the one night of the year where our neighbors are coming to us! How often do we invite people to church or to our home for a gathering only to be rejected? What a wonderful opportunity to say “yes!” on Halloween night when they come straight to our doors. This time of year is the beginning of cooler weather, festive gatherings, and togetherness. It offers us the opportunity to reach out to our neighbors and friends in creative ways.

Halloween. It’s like a four-letter word in some Christian circles. Yes, there are some pagan roots that do not line up with the Bible. There are practices this time of year that are downright demonic. But when most people mention that they enjoy celebrating Halloween, they aren’t talking about their love of séances and Ouija […]

How to be a Cheerful Giver of Your Time (Time management for the Christian woman and college girl)

I wish I had learned much earlier in life that overcommitment can be a sin. Sometimes we put good before God, and we assume that something good is definitely what we are supposed to do. When we jump into a commitment headfirst without even prayerfully consulting God, we can find our plate completely full—even overflowing—and […]

We’ve all been there: spending too much time on our phones and too little time in the present moment. For such a small device that can fit in the palms of our hands, it’s amazing how much power our phones or tablets have over our hearts. I’m a firm believer that we don’t have to […]

A 31-Day Devotional for College Girls to Honor the Lord During Their College Years.

Dear College Girl, Dear College Girl is a 31-day devotional to encourage current or soon-to-be college girls to live godly lives in school. We asked five women to contribute to this book—women who walked through college seeking to honor Jesus and glorify Him. Each letter contains wisdom from Scripture, personal experience, and godly insight on […]

The following is an excerpt from Jessica Mathisen’s brand-new book Already Chosen: Loving your Life in the Midst of Longing, now available on Amazon. Jessica Mathisen lives in Athens, Georgia with her first and forever boyfriend, Rory, and their sweet puppy, Bailey. She is a recovering perfectionist, a former teacher, and a lover of people. Her […]

“How do you grow a following?” she asked. I cringed at the question, because I know firsthand that numbers can shackle our souls and trip us up if they become our driving ambition in life. I’m asked this question quite often, and it’s honestly one that I wrestle with answering well. Our society is built […]

the day of love February 14th is a day that is anticipated, and often dreaded, by many women, both married and single. The glory placed on the materialism of the day often overshadows the beauty of deep, abiding, perfect love. Stores entrances overflow with chocolates and flowers and the waiting time at restaurants is doubled. […]

Do you ever notice your heart can have a tendency to put good before God?  Often I assume that something good is definitely what I am supposed to do, because it is good, after all! Then I jump in headfirst without even consulting God or prayerfully asking Him if this is His will for my life.  […]

For years, I have read books by recent and older authors that have shaped my walk with Jesus. Having a mentor in my life has always been important in my spiritual growth, but there are several “mentors” that I have never met and will never meet. These people have mentored me through their writing and […]
