Confession and Repentance

“I thought I’d be over this by now!” Whitney* exclaimed as she sat at my kitchen table. It’s been two years since Whitney started going to counseling. And while the presenting issue at the time had nothing to do with sexual sin, the journey to get healthy in one area of her life shed light […]

Has a relationship in your life become messy? Has something that started as encouraging eroded into an obsessive, painful web of emotions? Your new BFF insists on knowing everything about your daily activities. It felt so amazing initially, but now you feel trapped. Your mentor or someone you’ve been discipling has stepped back from needing […]

Confession: I created the Give Me Jesus Journal to help women study the Word daily, and some days I don’t use it or finish my entry. There are days when I linger for a long time in the Word, and there are days when I only read one verse. Some days I start reading my […]

Waiting is hard. I am impatient, and I also love control. 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.

Though I have the picturesque Goldendoodle, I’ve found myself mourning these common milestones—especially as others receive these blessings on what seems […]

A Change of Heart I discovered the intriguing world of inductive Bible study about six years ago. Following the technique I learned from my pastor, I began soaking up the word of God like a sponge. Excitement sparked like lightning inside my brain as I began connecting dots across Scripture. I started to really know […]

Preparing In Surrender If there is one thing that I want to encourage you with before we dive headfirst into our 40 days of prayer in the Psalms, it would be this wisdom from the missionary, Hudson Taylor: “You must go forward on your knees.” I think we tend to live life backward from the way […]

Back to Jesus It was an all-out fight to focus during my quiet time. Thoughts flooded my mind—worries, fears, questions, unresolved ideas, pressing tasks. I couldn’t read the words before me in my Bible. Time flew by like a rocket. I spent the time trying to wrangle my attention while counting down the minutes to […]
