Today we are kicking off the 30-Day Word Before World Challenge, and thousands of women around the world are joining in with us. This challenge is simple but intentional: devote your heart to seeking the Lord before jumping into the world each day. We created a free guide you can receive and begin at any […]
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 […]
There’s no better way to begin this post than with the living and active words of Scripture. Take a moment to read this short passage slowly, asking Jesus to show you something new in His Word: “Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into […]
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 […]

In Isaiah 55, God invites all who are thirsty to come and drink from the living water that satisfies. His invitation is for everyone. He doesn’t just call those who have their acts together, those who aren’t as needy, or those who have money. In fact, God explicitly calls “everyone who is thirsty” to come […]

In the midst of her insecurities, her distracted heart, and her sleepy eyes, He came with truth, redemption, and purpose.
There was a time in my life when studying the Bible felt like foreign territory and a massive, unattainable goal. My schedule seemed to be “jam-packed” and I was unwilling to forfeit a little bit of extra sleep to read the Word. At this point, I hadn’t really tasted and seen with my own eyes how good God is and how Scripture would change my life and become the bread and water to my existence. This time was in middle school – those awkward years where everyone is trying to figure out who they are and exploring their identity. Middle school was a strange time for me, like it is for most people. I was teetering between living a sold out life for Christ and falling headfirst into the ways of the world.

These clumsy years were actually used by God to be the foundation He used to begin to show me that time with Him wasn’t a waste, it was a necessity to living fully.
