Goal Setting

Last year I had the worst habit of waking up and scrolling on my phone first thing. I knew it wasn’t good for my soul, but I did in anyway. The warmth of my covers somehow lured me into staying “just a few minutes longer,” and my time with Jesus started to suffer. To be […]

In 1716, American revivalist preacher, theologian, and writer, Jonathan Edwards, penned a list of seventy “resolutions.” These resolutions, unlike most New Years Resolutions, were rooted deeply in a humble desire to obey God’s Word. Edwards began each of these resolutions with the simple word “resolved…” Resolve means to firmly set in one’s heart to do […]

The ultimate resolution in the life of the believer is simply stated in these two commands. Love God, and love others. Our New Years Resolutions may change from year to year, but if you are a believer in Christ and are being transformed in His image, then hopefully the heart of your goals each year […]

For the past three years I’ve been on an unexpected journey of being a “mamaprenuer”.

When we confuse the source of our identity with who God says we are and what the scale says we weigh, everything else becomes skewed. We focus less on Jesus and more on ourselves. We obsess and worry over every calorie instead of spending every moment pursuing the kingdom of God. What if we dress for today and walk in the confidence of who God made us to be, right now?
