His Wisdom for Her World

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us.

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us.

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us (leading us to faith and worship), we have to see it as something done by us (leading us to repentance). Indeed, “only the man who is prepared to own his share in the guilt of the cross,” wrote Canon Peter Green, “may claim […]

Overcoming the Stronghold of Fear

I was six years old when I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I remember having a strong conviction over my sin, and I knew I needed Jesus to come into my life to save me. When I was eight years old, my mother was diagnosed with cancer. This was when fear […]

The Recent Debate of the Trinity and Gender: A Development Not a Departure

In the previous blogs, I have presented an overview of the recent debate of the Trinity and gender roles (here and here). I also discussed and answered two major charges against the position called “EFS” for its emphasis on the eternal functional subordination of the Son to the Father. In this blog, I would like […]

Fostering Grace

Fostering Grace

Unqualified. Insecurity. Doubt. Fear. Those are the things that constantly loomed in my thoughts. Those words could define a number of things for you – for me, those words defined motherhood. In January, my husband and I embarked on an uphill journey through the Foster Care System. We have welcomed the late night phone calls asking […]

How I Changed My Definition of Beauty and Learned to Love My Wrinkles

How I Changed My Definition of Beauty and Learned to Love My Wrinkles

Standing in front of the mirror after my twins were born, the six months of sleepless nights were written in the crevices of my eyes and the sullen appearance of my skin. Motherhood was taking it’s toll on me — mentally, physically and now in the form of some brand new wrinkles on my face. […]

Don’t Be An Elephant, Girl! Pick Up Your Shield!

“Why can’t I get over this?” “What is wrong with me that I keep struggling with the same thing over and over again.  Am I an idiot or something?!?!” “This will never cease being a temptation in my life.  I might as well just resign to the fact that I will always be this way.” […]

Why Simply Reading Devotionals Will Not Achieve the Goal of Discipleship

The goal of discipleship is 2 Timothy 2:2 – “…and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” We are taught to teach people who will teach people. (Read that 3 more times and put in calligraphy somewhere in your […]

The Trinity and Gender? Talking about the Recent Debate (Part 2)

In Part 1 of this series, I summarized this debate and the criticisms against EFS (the eternal functional subordination of the Son to the Father) theologians, mainly Wayne Grudem and Bruce Ware. I also discussed one of the charges against EFS theologians, namely that EFS theologians should not relate the Trinity to gender roles. I […]

The Gritty, Grace-Filled Virtue of Self-Control

The Gritty, Grace-Filled Virtue of Self-Control

“She’s so transparent,” “She is so quick to give grace,” “She’s a great listener,” “She’s got…so much….self control.” Not the most sought-after compliment for a Christian woman these days; it’s akin to something like, “She’s got a great personality.” But why, I wonder. Why does complimenting someone’s self-control seem so lacking in its “spirituality”? Is […]

The Trinity and Gender? Talking about the Recent Debate (Part 1)

I was enjoying my post-graduation trip in South Texas when several friends informed me of the recent online debate about the Trinity and gender roles. Again—yes, again—this issue is hotly debated. However, this time the debate is not between egalitarians and complementarians but among Reformed complementarians. The debate seems to have turned into a “civil […]
