Heart Check

Seasons that Endure We’ve all been there … those times when the season we are in doesn’t seem to be changing. Those times when we question how long we can operate in “survival mode.” Times that bring the challenge: “If this doesn’t change, am I okay with that?”  I am privileged to work as a […]

“Out of the deepest waters and the hottest fires have come the deepest things that I know about God.”  –Elisabeth Elliot When Trials Come As believers, we can expect trials to come our way. I love the way the apostle Peter states it so honestly in 1 Peter 4:12–13: “Beloved, do not be surprised at […]

“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 […]

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. So often, I have an ideal in my head of what something needs to look like, and nothing less will do. I’m not artsy, so Instagram-worthy doodles on Scripture’s pages will never be […]

Girls’ Night Surprise Recently, I was hosting a sweet friend of mine for dinner. My husband was out of town, and I was looking forward to utilizing the time for a relaxing “girls’ night in.” I was planning to make tacos for our dinner together, and I had pre-planned the menu earlier in the week […]

Navigating Relationships I professed Jesus as my Lord and Savior at a young age. On Christmas Day 2005, my brother and I were baptized together at the church we were raised in. But in our small town, it was difficult to find a “Christian friend.” At the time it seemed unimportant. Through those crucial middle […]

Think Before You Speak My thumb hovered over the Reply button. I had been watching a discussion play out on Facebook, and I had strong feelings about the topic. I was becoming more and more agitated internally as I read opinions that were swerving away from truth and into dangerous, murky territory. Verse after verse […]

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 […]

Confession: I sometimes think quantity is better than quality. Two peanut butter cups is always better than one, even if they are two Reese’s versus one Justin’s. Four pairs of Gap jeans is surely better than one pair of Sevens, because what mom is willing to risk getting snot and strawberry hands all over her […]
