Happy APRIL dear friends! We can’t believe how fast the year has gone, but as we head into a new month and a new season, we are thrilled for what’s ahead. This month we will begin an eight-week, in-depth study of Ephesians using our Walk In Grace journal as a guide. This journal uses a […]

“How do you grow a following?” she asked. I cringed at the question, because I know firsthand that numbers can shackle our souls and trip us up if they become our driving ambition in life. I’m asked this question quite often, and it’s honestly one that I wrestle with answering well. Our society is built […]

Today’s post was originally shared on the LifeWay Women leadership blog. LifeWay Women aims to equip women to reach women, in Jesus’ Name. You can subscribe to their blog for weekly updates and more material that will encourage you to lead like Jesus! “How old are you?” It’s one of the first questions I was asked when […]

“I just want to quit.” -me (and most likely you)

If you’ve been reading this blog or 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 wrestled with the potential it has to be used for good and for God’s glory. When I read any of Paul’s letters in the New Testament, I see him using arguments and means that were known to the people he was reaching to share about Jesus. Paul addressed the people right where they were with the power and hope of the gospel. There was no social media during the time he wrote his letters to the church, but he was passionate about reaching people in their own various contexts. While society looks different than during Jesus’ time, the principles and timeless truths of Scripture still apply to us today. The Great Commission is still a command to us, and it’s our role as Jesus-followers to wrestle through the countless ways we can reach people and shine the light of Christ in a dark world. 

Motivation is a curious thing. We can be motivated by things so easily – sometimes recognized, other times subconsciously. When we recognize something that compels us into action, it’s easier to get moving and make a choice that brings us satisfaction. We choose to eat healthy all day so we can reward ourselves with a […]

Confession. I am a recovering addict. Chances are, you are one too. I have been enslaved to “likes” and trapped by numbers for a lot of my life. The number battle seems to wage a war in my heart each day. Even before things like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, I measured myself by how many people complimented me or knew me. In college I struggled with the numbers I saw on the scale. They never got low enough for me to feel beautiful and my body suffered from it (read more about my story here). It seems like we are constantly trapped by numbers and never appeased with what we see.
