We all know "that" person. On social media, their life is perfect. They never have a bad day. Every single moment they breathe on Earth is a blessing and they will make sure you know that. And yet, even with all their perfect pictures, we all know that couldn't possibly be true. Nobody lives their … Continue reading Human.
This April will be a special one. It will mark 10 years that I have been following Christ. I truly can't believe this anniversary has come so soon. That fateful day feels like just yesterday. Many of my anniversary posts are just a recounting of my testimony, and while those are great, this time, I'd … Continue reading 10 Years of Sanctification
One of my favorite Matt Chandler clips is the one where he talks about Mark Driscoll. Chances are, most people nowadays don't know who Mark Driscoll was. If you do, that's awesome. But if you don't, he used to be the pastor of Mars Hill Church. He was also the founder of the Acts 29 … Continue reading Fulfill Your Ministry
A friend of mine and I were recently talking about work and she told me a story about her former boss that I would never forget. Let's call my friend "Nicole" (to protect her identity). Nicole worked as a secretary at a large firm. Now, Nicole's boss claimed to be a Christian. He went to church … Continue reading What Is Your Witness?
Yesterday, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed when I came across an article about Michael and Lisa Gungor. Honestly, I probably would have scrolled passed it had one word not been in the preview; Atheist. Surely, "atheist" and "Christian artist" typically don't go together, so I clicked the link and decided to see why … Continue reading The Road Is Narrow
"Fear, he is a liar. He will take your breath. Stop you in your steps. Fear, he is a liar. He will rob your rest. Steal your happiness. Cast your fear in the fire, 'Cause fear, he is a liar." Have you ever felt afraid? Maybe you were afraid for you life. Maybe you felt … Continue reading Fear Is A Liar
Anyone who knows me well knows that my life long dream was to be a lawyer. In 5th grade, I told my classroom's DARE officer about this dream and, in response, he gave me an outdated version of his rule book (which I actually read a few times). In middle school, I joined drama to … Continue reading I Should’ve Been A Lawyer
(The following post contains affliate links). When I was first saved, I didn't know many other brothers and sisters in the faith. Because of this, I ended up walking into the nearest Christian book store and buying whatever I could find (which led to me reading some "questionable" things, to say the least). Because of … Continue reading My Favorite Study Bible: The ESV MacArthur Study Bible
Divorce is never easy. Though I haven't been through one, I am the child of divorced parents. Being that my parents divorced when I was a teenager, I have this odd upbringing of knowing what a "normal" family is supposed to look like, then suddenly having that taken away from me. I am no stranger … Continue reading Lysa TerKeurst & Divorce
When I was pregnant with my first daughter, Julie, I expected a lot to be different. I understood that a baby meant a lot of changes. I knew we (my husband and I) would have a lot less space in the house as her swings, playmate, crib, etc moved in, that we would have this tiny … Continue reading What To Expect When You’re Expecting
