“How do you grow a following?” she asked. I cringed at the question, because I know firsthand that numbers can shackle our souls and trip us up if they become our driving ambition in life. I’m asked this question quite often, and it’s honestly one that I wrestle with answering well. Our society is built […]

Leading In a World That Follows

Biblical Womanhood

I am a clinical professor of nursing at a large, public university.  I love my job.  My students are creative, innovative, curious, and individualistic.  There is a spark in the air I breathe every day because of them.  Working at a university lends itself to so many unique opportunities and there is this underlying current […]

Modesty. It’s an age old word that makes most people cringe on the inside, even in the church. Debates about modesty have divided believers while most ideas of its’ meaning have no true Gospel foundation. The term modesty has always seemed to be a mysterious word that is tiptoed around but never grasped or studied. Most people are afraid to embrace the subject and others reject whatever it might mean. When I was younger, the term modesty always brought to mind the picture of a nun or Maria from the Sound of Musicfully covered from head to toe with no color or creativity. This didn’t sit well with my love for fashion!
