2 Corinthians 15:2 - An Artist on a Budget

​I am an artist on a budget, so what do I do? I go to thrift stores and find used canvas. I take the old canvas and turn it into a new creation. 2 Corinthians 15:2, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” Believer, you have been...

Three Ways Discontentment Can Take Over

Three Ways Discontentment Can Take Over

​My life was feeling a bit out of control. I came to realize my discontentment grew wheels and took me for a ride. I’ve come to realize that there are three categories of discontentment. Are you discontent in the season of life you’re in? You want to finish school, have kids or retirement? Are you...

When Leaders Fall

When Leaders Fall

​When leaders fall, sometimes our faith takes a hit. Let's talk about how and why this isn't the Gospel message. As always, let's look at scripture. If your faith has taken a hit because of a fallen leader, let's go back to the Gospel.

How to Get Wisdom

How to Get Wisdom

​My 3rd grade Sunday school teacher taught about wisdom. He was a college professor during the week. I learned so much from his Sunday class because he talked to us like we were adults. What he said about how to get wisdom is something I will never forget and have done ever since.

How Do You Respect Your Parents When You've Moved Out

How Do You Respect Your Parents When You've Moved Out

​Honoring your parents isn’t an easy task. When you’re a child this is simple. It looks like obeying well and doing what you’re told. — But what does this look like when you’re older… When you no longer live in your parent's basement?

What You Do is Not Your Worth

What You Do is Not Your Worth

When I graduated college I didn’t know what I was going to do next. I didn’t have an answer to the question, “so what do you do?” Our culture values what people do more than the person. God values something different.

Lay Your Burdens Down

Lay Your Burdens Down

I have to walk a few blocks from my car to my apartment. It's almost impossible to carry the groceries in from that distance. I figured out a way so that I don't have to carry the groceries a few blocks. Just like groceries, we carry burdens in life that we don't need to be carrying.

Your Life Smells of God's Love

Your Life Smells of God's Love

Do the Impossible

Do the Impossible

​My day job is working as a radio sound engineer. I remember the first time a radio emergency happened at my job. I was panicking. I yelled out, “I can’t do it!” I don’t know what to do.” I don’t remember what went wrong. I probably accidentally played the wrong song on the radio air waves. My...

How to Deal with People Who May be Power Hungry

How to Deal with People Who May be Power Hungry

​Jesus knew who is ultimately in power. Not a human, not a fallen angel, but God. C’mon, can I get an amen!? What!? Yes! Praise God! AND Jesus came to overcome the world. It’s already been won. He didn’t have to prove anything. And believer, neither do you.

The Bible Verse You Need to Know Before You Date

The Bible Verse You Need to Know Before You Date

I get many questions about dating. I love these! So fun! And occasionally I’ll get a text from a girl who is going on her first ever date. We’ll go have coffee and talk about the guy, what the parents think, where is the first date going to be, what will she wear… all of the exciting fun things....

Fear of Failing

Fear of Failing

​Being present may help you with your fear of failing. I wrote down some lessons I learned from watching the Michael Jordan documentary. You would be surprised how he faced fear is similar to how God wants us to face our fears.

When You Wear a Mask

When You Wear a Mask

​Part of my testimony is being freed from perfectionism. If this is something you struggle with, you probably know how it feels to put on a mask to hide your imperfections. Christ came to pay for your sins, and we will grow if we abide in Him and confess our sins. He can free you from the chains...

Dad, You Matter

Dad, You Matter

​My father-in-law played a crucial part in my husband understanding grace. I am forever thankful. My husband told me the story while we were cooking dinner in our small kitchen. I teared up. Fathers, you matter. You can have generational impact for the Lord. Keep walking with the Lord. Happy...
