Confession and Repentance

Check Your Story (at the door) I love telling stories. Stories connect us to a time and place, a memory, to one another. But lately, I find myself telling stories that aren’t mine to tell. I have played it off as a form of caring and sharing with those I love, but at the core, […]

Death that Leads to Life Colossians 3:5 tells us to “put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” I think we all have a pretty good picture of what sexual immorality, impurity, passion, and evil desires are. It’s easy for us to nod […]

“Out of the deepest waters and the hottest fires have come the deepest things that I know about God.”  –Elisabeth Elliot When Trials Come As believers, we can expect trials to come our way. I love the way the apostle Peter states it so honestly in 1 Peter 4:12–13: “Beloved, do not be surprised at […]

“Each time you fall He will pick you up again. And He knows perfectly well that your own efforts are never going to bring you anywhere near perfection.” –C.S. Lewis Crying Over Spilled Pasta It was toward the end of a long day, one of those days in which everything seems to go wrong, and […]

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 […]

Perfectionism Paralysis Maybe it’s a personality thing, but I find perfectionism creeping into every area of my life—including my relationship with God. So often, I have an ideal in my head of what something needs to look like, and nothing less will do. I’m not artsy, so Instagram-worthy doodles on Scripture’s pages will never be […]

Girls’ Night Surprise Recently, I was hosting a sweet friend of mine for dinner. My husband was out of town, and I was looking forward to utilizing the time for a relaxing “girls’ night in.” I was planning to make tacos for our dinner together, and I had pre-planned the menu earlier in the week […]

Our Story and Theirs A few years ago my husband and I were invited to dinner at the home of a sweet family in our church. We didn’t know them very well at the time, but what we did know about them we loved. They were clearly devoted to the Lord and loved one another […]

Confession: I sometimes think quantity is better than quality. Two peanut butter cups is always better than one, even if they are two Reese’s versus one Justin’s. Four pairs of Gap jeans is surely better than one pair of Sevens, because what mom is willing to risk getting snot and strawberry hands all over her […]

In the Night I pull my coat on, grab my bag, and head out into the night—though sometimes I’d prefer to be heading to bed instead of to work. But work is a privilege. I, along with an amazing team, look after some of the very vulnerable, who know their days are counted, and provide […]
