Discipleship

“Each time you fall He will pick you up again. And He knows perfectly well that your own efforts are never going to bring you anywhere near perfection.” –C.S. Lewis Crying Over Spilled Pasta It was toward the end of a long day, one of those days in which everything seems to go wrong, and […]

A Time to Remember Several years ago, I found myself spending an afternoon in a very different way than I had planned. I’d come to my desk trying to find something I just couldn’t seem to track down. In the midst of searching every nook and cranny of the desk, I opened one little door […]

Loving Others, Yourself and the Lord The key to loving others well isn’t learning to love yourself first. I know, I know. That’s not what you’re hearing from the world right now, but it’s true. As good as it may sound, loving yourself first isn’t the answer.  Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like […]

Our Plans We will become foster parents once we have “our own” kids. That’s what my husband and I thought for a while. But God had other plans. On our first date, we talked about how we would love to adopt one day. However, when we became aware of the plight that is the foster […]

god-centered community God designed you for community (1 Peter 2:4–5; Eph. 2:19–22). He made you with a desire to connect with other people who can grow with you, cry with you, sharpen you, encourage you, and laugh with you. No matter your stage or season, all of us long to find people we can simply […]

Are you flourishing? If I were to describe my life on a daily basis, the word “flourishing” would most likely not make the list. Overwhelmed, busy, and tired would find their way to the top, while life-giving words like flourish, abundant, and thriving would often fall to the bottom of the list. However, Scripture clearly […]

I’m not yet 30, but I’m old enough to remember dial-up connections and AOL Instant Messenger, “away messages” to let people know when you were away from your computer, arguing with siblings over who got to use the computer to “get online,” and then arguing again when your time was up because you were in […]

Dear College Girl, Dear College Girl is a 31-day devotional to encourage current or soon-to-be college girls to live godly lives in school. We asked five women to contribute to this book—women who walked through college seeking to honor Jesus and glorify Him. Each letter contains wisdom from Scripture, personal experience, and godly insight on […]
