My first panic attack happened last year on an airplane over to Madrid. Coupled with sickness, little sleep, and a baby who wouldn’t be consoled, my mind and body reacted in a way I had never experienced before. This experience began a breaking in my soul that I thought would lead to complete ruin, but […]

Panic Attack + God’s Plan of Attack

She was wondering if she could ever be free. Freedom seemed to be far off in the distance from where she was, trapped by lies her in the prison cell of her mind. She looked around her, thinking everyone had it “all together” and she was the only one falling apart. She stared in the […]

Is This “She” You?

Dying to Live If you’re a Hamilton fan, then you know there’s a moment in the show when George Washington is discussing the war with Alexander Hamilton, making the statement: “Dying is easy; living is harder.” I feel like there’s a correlation between that statement and what happens when you finally open the can of […]

Once You’ve Opened a Can of Worms

Relationships

In the Light This summer, I led a Bible study for the young singles in our church, and sexual discipleship was one of the topics in this series. It was also the week I had the most anxiety about teaching. In a conversation with a friend, I relayed my nerves about this particular week and […]

A Can of Worms

Well-Watered Women

Can I just be honest? I love bible journaling. I love painting an image to connect my mind to a verse and getting to share my heart through the process. But the enemy has snuck into what should be an act of worship and spoken comparison, insecurity, and pride into the nooks and crannies of […]

Freedom in the Word

Studying the Bible

We all carry one. That 3 foot, 36 inch measuring stick. It’s a crutch for some. A weapon for others. And then for for others it’s a scepter by which they rule others by. It’s the most unbecoming accessory. With it come chains that hold us back, tie us down and leave us wounded and unusable for the Kingdom of God. We feel as if we will never measure up to others by it, and we feel as if we are above others because of it. This stick is a lie. It’s a stumbling block designed to trip us up. And the maker of this stick is comparison.

The Measuring Stick That’s Never Enough

identity

It’s time we took our eyes off the numbers, scales, and sizes and consumed our lives with the weight of glory in Jesus Christ. You are already free, sisters. Nothing holds you in changes anymore because Jesus holds that key that sets you free. Let’s live for the kind of weight that matters—sharing the glory of Christ with a world that desperately needs to know there is freedom, today.

4 Steps To iPhone Freedom

Relationships

The following post is written by my dear friend, Emily Riley. I asked her recently to share her story of redemption from an eating disorder. Women and men all over the world struggle with weight and having an incorrect body image. Most people struggle with disordered eating, but never tell anyone of the hidden bondage. We easily hide our image struggles behind a guise of “healthy eating,” exercise, and even self confidence, when on the inside we are aching and in a prison. It is my desire to bring light to this dark, hidden area. I, too, have struggled with an eating disorder and have found immense freedom that can only be found in Christ alone (read my story here). As we open up our hearts vulnerably, I pray that Jesus would shine brightly and lead others into a life of freedom and authenticity.

The Weight of Authenticity

identity

The following post is raw. It is a tiny glimpse into a struggle I had with an eating disorder in college, and my heart in sharing it with you is that more women would find freedom from the bondage of eating and image through Jesus. Eating disorders are one of the most hidden sins of our society, especially in the church. As followers of Jesus, we need to stand firm against this yoke of slavery and speak about the lies that women are believing all over the world about their image, food, and worth.
