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...

Your Words Matter

Your Words Matter

​I've walked away from conversations feeling like I shouldn't have said anything! I'm sure you've had that feeling too. Usually this happens to me when I'm talking too much about myself. There's an example in the Bible of how we can use our words to glorify God and not...

A Different Type of Peace

A Different Type of Peace

​What is peace and is it working for us? Those are the thoughts I have about peace. When I took a deep dive into what the Bible describes as peace, it's not at all what a hippie with a yoga mat would say. Jesus promises that He will give us peace.

Why We Should Laugh

Why We Should Laugh

Laughter is good medicine. You've heard this before right? Psychologists agree. Did you know God laughs? We are talking about why it's good to see God laugh in the Bible and why we might be able to join Him.

What Does Repentance Look Like?

What Does Repentance Look Like?

​Jesus called us to repent and believe. What does repentance actually look like in our lives? Recently someone illustrated repentance to me in a way that I will never forget. Repentance looks like turning around because your life depends on it. Just like turning around if you were going head on...

The Jealousy Cycle

The Jealousy Cycle

​I didn’t realize I had said something that hurt her until it was too late. My sister is nine years younger than I am. We’ve had the classic big/little sister relationship. God used a recent conflict to teach me a huge lesson — how sneaky jealousy can be.

Being Single During a Pandemic

Being Single During a Pandemic

​I’ve lived completely by myself before. It wasn’t very long, but it was a few years. I enjoyed having the advantage that, when you’re single, you can be “single-minded” or “focused” on what the Lord has for YOU (1 Corinthians 7:34). However, some days were easier than others. If you are single...

Make Space for Prayer

Make Space for Prayer

​Prayer is so powerful! Susanna Wesley is the mother to John and Charles Wesley who both were used by God to lead a great revival in England. Susanna had many children and very little resources. She was often found sitting in a chair with a blanket over head. That was her way of getting alone with...

My Friend Kathy

My Friend Kathy

​My friend Kathy has trouble with her eyes. She is a part of my church's youth group. I watched, heart broken, as she had to stay behind most youth group activities. One day, Kathy shared something with me that made me think. As Christians there is something we need to say more often...

Anxiety

Anxiety

​I've had a really hard time sleeping. How about you? Did you know that not only has modern psychology proved this, but the Bible provides a great way to keep from letting anxiety rule our lives. Philippians 4:8 says, "Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is...
