This article is part of our Hymn Series, releasing throughout the month of June leading up to the launch of our new Be Still collection. Rooted in praise to the Lord, hymns have a way of helping us slow down to really reflect on and appreciate truths about God and the gospel as we sing […]

Have you ever sat across from a friend and felt your theological disagreements strike up between you like a jagged fence? The conversation was going well, and you were laughing and chatting, but then the conversation drifted to your faith, and you realized you each held opposing views.  Your friend may have left that day […]

Preparing for Motherhood “Antenatal what?” I scratched my head, trying to make sense of my therapist’s words. “Antenatal depression.” She continued. “It’s depression that some moms experience before the baby comes.” I let her words sink in. And after a quiet moment, nodded my head in agreement. “I think that sounds about right.” The name […]

Church can feel like an add-on to our weeks. We’ve already invested so much time in going to Tuesday morning moms’ group, writing in our journals and following our inductive studies, listening to podcasts and sermons in the car, humming worship music while scrubbing dishes, and teaching our children the classic Bible stories during family […]

Can Spending Time in Nature Make You a Better Bible Reader? I’m outside today, looking over the plot of earth that will hold our garden in a few weeks. Officially, spring is just a few days away, but the air carries a slight chill. Still, we’ve made it through the slog and slosh of winter, […]

A Social Break This past fall, when the engine of homeschooling and managing life amid lockdowns and working from home seemed to hit full steam, I logged off of social media. I deleted the apps from my phone and I told myself I would be fully present. I’d look into my kids’ eyes when they […]

I tiptoe out of a dark room into a dark kitchen. I prepare a simple breakfast and a pot of coffee before cozying up on a screened-in porch to wait for the day to break into the night. Then I flip on a light overhead to see and meditate and study the holy words that […]

A Deeper Gratitude Every Thanksgiving, the tradition of going around the table and proclaiming thanks one by one leaves me feeling frustrated. Why does this practice feel empty and insufficient to me? I think it’s because thankfulness, as a sinner-made-saint, demands an understanding of gratitude far beyond a last-minute toss-up. And so I search my […]

Knowing the Bible My earliest memories of religious life begin at the tender age of two. I sang my first song in a small Baptist church before I had learned how to spell. My mama was our church organist and my grandmama was the pianist. As you can imagine, attending church was a pretty normal […]
