Confession and Repentance

I made a surprising find this week when I opened the drawers of my son’s dresser. Suddenly, it became apparent how he was managing to keep his room so tidy. Everything he owned was jammed into those drawers! As I sat on the floor folding and sorting, I was reminded of how easy it is […]

Not What I Planned My twenties have not gone according to my plan. So far, my post-grad years have been absent of a fiancé turned husband, a house turned home, and bump-dates turned babies. 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 […]

The Story of Scripture The span of history covered by Scripture is both long and wide. At times it can feel overwhelming trying to take it all in and remember who is whom and what happened when.

I sat on our couch one sunny afternoon with a mama friend, sipping tea and catching up on life. Her little one was lying happily on the floor, chewing on a rubber toy.  This lovely young mother bore the signs of one who had been in the trenches of new motherhood. Many nights of little […]

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 […]
