I sat around glistening trees that Christmas with warm drinks and giggling babies—other people’s babies. Almost a year of trying to conceive had left me feeling empty; each cycle passed with no news that a little one would soon be joining our family. On Christmas Day I held more babies and let one or two […]

Why did God create us with emotions?  Have you ever thought about that? He could have easily made us without them, but in His sovereignty, He chose to let this be one of the ways that we image Him, understand Him, and glorify Him. Do emotions function like a thermometer or a thermostat in your […]

As 2019 comes to a close, I’ve been on the hunt for the “perfect planner” to use in 2020. Over the past few years, I’ve tried out several planners in an attempt to find one that would help my overwhelming life feel more manageable, organizing my days with ease. The other day I stumbled upon […]

A Change of View A child’s world is small. I remember holding my tiny baby on our couch and my father-in-law said, “Think about how small his world is. To him, this house is the entire world. All he knows is wake up, be fed, and go to sleep again.” As children grow older, their […]

From My Heart to Yours Hey sister, Many of you who open the Unshaken journal are walking through a season of struggle, questioning, or suffering which has caused anxiety and worry to pile up in your heart like a heavy weight.

It’s easy for us to nod […]

“The seasons change and you change but the Lord abides evermore the same, and the streams of His love are as deep, as broad, and as full as ever.”  –Charles Spurgeon Change and Consistency Change. Hard, holy, and beautiful—I have experienced paramount change in the past eight months of my life. On March 4th we […]

Seasons that Endure We’ve all been there … those times when the season we are in doesn’t seem to be changing. Those times when we question how long we can operate in “survival mode.” Times that bring the challenge: “If this doesn’t change, am I okay with that?”  I am privileged to work as a […]

“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 […]

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 […]
