Relationships

In the span of two months, I said two contradictory statements to my husband.  “I don’t think I can be a stay-at-home mom anymore.”  “I think I just want to be a stay-at-home mom right now.”  My patient husband always waits for me to unwrap these statements.

The words felt like a stone hurled at my soul, sucker-punching my identity in Christ. I can still recite several […]

Being a single Christian in your late twenties warrants a lot of comments, questions, and advice. I’ll never forget the moment a woman in my church asked me, “Do you not want to get married?” I’m fairly certain my mouth hung open for a few seconds! I had just shared with her that the Lord […]

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 […]

I was scrolling through Instagram the other day, mindlessly perusing. Suddenly, this adorable girl posted this insanely cute sweater that I really liked. As I paused to read her caption, I was immediately overwhelmed by a need to buy the sweater. Never mind that I have dozens of warm, cute, well-fitting sweaters in my closet. […]
