Surrender

Why did God create us with emotions?  Have you ever thought about that? He could have easily made us without them, but in His sovereignty, He chose to let this be one of the ways that we image Him, understand Him, and glorify Him. Do emotions function like a thermometer or a thermostat in your […]

As 2019 comes to a close, I’ve been on the hunt for the “perfect planner” to use in 2020. Over the past few years, I’ve tried out several planners in an attempt to find one that would help my overwhelming life feel more manageable, organizing my days with ease. The other day I stumbled upon […]

Finding Purpose in Our Days As a single woman with a part-time job in a rural town, it’s all too easy to find myself subconsciously slipping into the belief that the things I do aren’t all that important.  “If your circumstances were different, your life would matter more,” this lie whispers on the worst of […]

Perfectionism Paralysis Maybe it’s a personality thing, but I find perfectionism creeping into every area of my life—including my relationship with God.
