When the Devil Derails Your Day

By on February 9, 2017 in Christian Life with 2 Comments

I should have known it was going to be a bad day. I stepped out of bed and, before my eyes had fully opened, I tripped on the cord that my phone was plugged into and ended up flying across the floor. With my face flat on the carpet and posterior in the air, I […]

The Subtle Dangers of Social Media

By on January 26, 2017 in Christian Life with 4 Comments

Each day, we walk into a battlefield of comparison. From perfectly posed Instagram pictures to carefully worded Facebook posts, we compare our worst moments to the seemingly “best” moments of others. We scrutinize what our friends and other women are doing through a tiny filter of social media and belittle the work God is doing […]

2017, Year of Priorities Not Resolutions

By on January 24, 2017 in Christian Life, Uncategorized with 0 Comments

Are you viewing 2017 through the lens of the media or the Word of God? The media reports that, among other things, family values are crumbling, lawlessness is rampant, the weather system is producing unprecedented damage, the education system undermines parental authority, the economy is literally bankrupt, and morality is at an all-time low. However, […]

4 Pinterest Boards You Shouldn't Have

God has laid this on my heart a while ago, and I’m finally getting around to writing this. I really enjoy Pinterest. It’s like this gold mine of awesome ideas that are all in one place that I can organize by category. I am on it ALL THE TIME. Behind the Bible and creation itself, […]

Becoming a Sanctuary of His Presence

By on October 20, 2016 in Christian Life with 4 Comments

In my tiny bathroom, there hangs a shelf lined with little lovelies: my go-to nail polish in Ruby Slippers, a jar of eye cream that promises miracles, a tube of lip gloss squeezed inches from its life, and my favorite bottle of perfume. One morning not too long ago, I overslept and, in my haste […]

Oh The Tangled Web We Weave!

I hate roaches. I just loathe them. Maybe my disgust is compounded by growing up in Florida where the roaches have wings! I mean, seriously, is there any more nightmarish, repulsive bug? What is it about roaches that makes us instant princess-and-the-pea type wimps? Ask us to stand up to social injustice? You got it! […]

Could We Just Love Each Other, Already?

About 10 years ago, as a junior in high school, I joined the world of Facebook. Awhile before that, Facebook was only open to college students via proof of an “.edu” email address, but soon after it opened up and high school students jumped in. It didn’t take much longer until…our parents showed up. Whether […]

What’s Keeping You from Using Your God-Given Influence?

By on September 27, 2016 in Christian Life with 1 Comment

There she was. Sitting on a beige sofa in the middle of my living room. Let’s call her Ashley. Ashley had grown up in the church and is still a faithful member. She even serves in the women’s ministry. She is a loving wife, mother, and career-woman. From the outside, she had it all. However, […]

Our God is a God of Second Chances

By on September 22, 2016 in Christian Life with 1 Comment

This year, my oldest daughter, Makaylan, began kindergarten. I’ve known for a year this day was coming, but I did not anticipate how deeply it would affect both her and me. I spent two weeks preparing her for this big event. (And my husband spent even longer preparing me.) We talked about her new teacher, […]

Misconceptions of Grace

By on September 20, 2016 in Christian Life, Theology with 0 Comments

Never before have I heard the phrase, “Can I have grace?” so often since becoming a dean at a Bible school.  And why shouldn’t I?  We all want grace. We get pulled over for speeding, and we do everything in our power to convince the pleasant police officer to give us grace, to get us out of […]
