Forgiven to Forgive: Part One

Relationships

February 14th is a day that is anticipated, and often dreaded, by many women, both married and single. The glory placed on the materialism of the day often overshadows the beauty of deep, abiding, perfect love. Stores entrances overflow with chocolates and flowers and the waiting time at restaurants is doubled. For 22 years of […]

Wooed By Grace

Biblical Womanhood

I had a funny interaction yesterday with a kind, well-meaning individual who was trying to offer some encouragement. The words didn’t come out as I’m sure they intended when they said, “Rachael, you’ve lost weight! You’re starting to look so pretty!” I just had to laugh a little because it was meant as a compliment, […]

Diets, Grace and Worth

identity

Ruth is a story of grace, woven throughout the pages of Scripture, pointing us to Christ – even years before He would come to earth to redeem the lost and save the wayward. Ruth is a picture of love, redemption and grace that reminds us of God’s relentless pursuit and unyielding love. We often think […]

Reintroducing Ruth: Gospel of Grace

Well-Watered Women

I never expected our hyperactive goldendoodle to teach me so much about God’s grace, but He’s funny like that sometimes. Lately she keeps going into the yard, throwing herself in the dirt and rolling around. She comes in filthy, with bugs and slugs (which are disgusting by the way) and leaves all in her fur. […]

Grace & Goldendoodles

Relationships

This post is from a member of the LLB Community, Hannah Clark: There’s a song with the lyrics “She’s the slipped disc in the spine of community.” The first time I heard them, they kind of took me for surprise. That was who, at one point in my life, I thought that I was. I […]

But God Redeems

My Story

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

I have a confession: I am a recovering “good girl.”

The Law of Love

Studying the Bible

February 14th is a day that is dreaded by many women, both married and single. The glory placed on the materialism of the day often overshadows the beauty of deep, abiding, perfect love. Stores are filled to overflow with chocolates and flowers and the waits at restaurants is doubled. For 22 years of my life I never had a Valentine (other than my sweet dad who took on that role). I never received the fancy chocolates, never was surprised with a dozen roses, and never was taken out on a Valentine’s Day date.

The season of revival is upon us. In the blink of an eye, tiny sprouts of green will bud on the trees and the drops of color will sprinkle the ground. Spring is coming. My heart races at the thought of spring each year. By the time March comes around, the bare trees and bleak skies have made my heart burn for color and life. The seasons come and go every year, echoing the sound of revival and restoration. For centuries, God has continued His work of redemption in the spring, bring what was once dead back to life. What an incredible picture of the gospel? What a magnificent painting of grace!
