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!

By on October 13, 2016 in Christian Life, Faith with 2 Comments

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?

By on October 11, 2016 in Christian Life with 1 Comment

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

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 […]

The Lethal Game of Comparison

By on September 15, 2016 in Christian Life with 0 Comments

The Comparison Game. It’s one we all play. And, in the end, it’s one we all lose. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, the woman on the latest episode of Fixer Upper – all present the newest ways in which we see what we don’t have. There are a gazillion articles online concerning comparison. I stopped reading them because […]

An Introvert’s “Guide” for Building Community

By on September 6, 2016 in Christian Life with 2 Comments

Being someone who leans more towards the introverted end of the personality spectrum, I am especially grateful to God that He allowed me to marry an extrovert. Otherwise, as a friend once jokingly pointed out, my son might never see the light of day! My husband is the type of person who will eagerly wait […]

Overcoming the Stronghold of Fear

By on August 18, 2016 in Christian Life with 0 Comments

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 […]

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

By on August 4, 2016 in Christian Life, Faith with 0 Comments

“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.” […]
