Heart Check

Anger at Home I punched our dinner once. Yep, full fist right into the fish fillet before me. The details flee my mind of why on earth I felt such burning rage at that moment in our home. All I know is, in my foolishness, I can destroy a whole lot more than our dinner. […]

She’s living my dream… I thought to myself as I scrubbed the carrots in my hand and started vigorously chopping them. My blood was pumping full speed with a surge of jealousy. I had just finished mindlessly browsing social media while my soup broth simmered and my heart boiled with discontent. In the midst of […]

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that I share a lot about social media. I’ve wrestled with the use of technology and the ability it has to strip us of our passions and trip us with comparison. But I’ve also seen the potential it has to be used […]

The Meaning of Advent Advent is a Latin word that means “coming.” There are two Advents in Scripture. The first Advent was the incarnation of Christ, and the second Advent refers to the future event of Christ’s return to defeat Satan forever and restore God’s kingdom.  As Christians, we base our entire lives upon the […]

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.

No Filter Faith She’s got her fancy journaling Bible and her special pens. She finds the best obscure theologian quotes to post with the most down-to-earth captions. It seems she has been running an online ministry since she finished college. Maybe she’s Gretchen or maybe she’s your childhood best friend or maybe she’s your pastor’s […]

Jesus and My Past Sometimes my past haunts me. I’ve been a believer for nearly ten years and barely recognize the woman I was before Jesus plucked me out of darkness and gave me a new heart. Yet, in the quiet hours of the night when sleep is nowhere to be found, I see her. […]

“You Shouldn’t Judge.” Once upon a couple of years ago, there was a wildly popular book written by a self-professed Christian author. It was released by a Christian publishing house and marketed on Christian platforms and websites. It was a fairy tale come true. Crushing it at the top of The New York Times Best […]

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 […]

An Unusual Birthday Today I turn 31, and today I should be delivering our third baby. It’s a strange feeling to celebrate life and mourn death on the same day. I remember it like it was yesterday. We’d gone to church that morning, and as I sat in the back, I felt a bit “off” […]
