Fall rolls out the red carpet for me each October when autumn leaves greet me on my morning drive. I almost feel guilty for how I anticipate watching the once-green and vibrant leaves die slowly and beautifully in my yard. Each tree that glows with gorgeous yellows, radiant reds, and bold browns signals that I’ll […]

“I’m doing really well.” The response had become my most common lie. Such responses are expected of Christian women, after all. The Stepford Wives quality unnerved me, but like a good little Christian girl, I fell in line. Keeping up the appearance of goodness easily becomes more important to me than being honest about my […]

We pray that you will find encouragement for your marriage through this article and experience hope in your hurt through this article written by Gretchen, our founder, about her miscarriage.] I never know how to start an article on miscarriage, because it […]

Recently, my friend Dee called me. Several years had passed since I saw her last. Hearing her voice after so long filled me with delight as it reminded me of my previous local church. On the outside, we couldn’t be more different than one another—her life was completely opposite from mine. She’s an older white […]

I sat on the edge of my bed with my phone to my ear. For the past six weeks, my husband functioned as a single parent while I laid in bed, suffocated by morning sickness.  My doctor called regularly. She was glad to hear I was finally starting to feel normal again and asked about […]

I had high hopes for my newly planted garden—that is, until my neighbor’s tree fell and crushed it the very next day. It was my first attempt of many to plant a garden this year, and by my fourth try, summer was drawing to a close. With little time left, I wondered if there was […]

What will they Remember? There’s something in us, as parents, that feels like we need to make fall magical. The apple cider. The pumpkin patch. The hot cocoa bars. Do you ever find yourself wishing you were that mom with the peppermint stir sticks for the hot cocoa or the caramel syrup for the apple […]
