Worshipping God as Women in His Image

By on October 4, 2016 in Biblical Womanhood, Theology with 3 Comments

We live on a conservation where the canopy of trees stretches back as far as I can see. Sitting on my back porch, I’m immersed in nature. I can hear grasshoppers chirping in unison while the breeze rustles through the leaves. Occasional birds chirp like melodic, timed bells. Wispy white clouds are painted across the […]

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 […]

By on August 25, 2016 in Theology with 0 Comments

I grew up in St. Louis, MO, and one of my favorite places in the city is the Cathedral Basilica. This massive cathedral holds the largest collection of mosaic art in the entire world. It’s breathtaking! Wall-to-wall, intricate glass pieces line vaulted ceilings and vast archways, creating portraits that depict entire stories. Up close, you […]

In the previous blogs, I have presented an overview of the recent debate of the Trinity and gender roles (here and here).

By on April 19, 2016 in Theology with 1 Comment

Have you ever conducted a biblical search on the word table? The first time the word table is used in the Bible is in Exodus 25. In this chapter, God gave Moses very detailed instructions about how the tabernacle was to be designed and furnished. After providing Moses with the blueprint for the ark of […]

Can We Be Christian Feminists?

By on November 19, 2015 in Feminism, Theology with 9 Comments

Feminism has been getting a facelift lately. From Beyonce’s 2014 VMA performance, to Emma Watson’s U.N. “He for She” campaign, women are identifying themselves as feminists to champion a broad umbrella of issues. Essentially, being pro-women is considered synonymous with feminism. It’s occurring among evangelical Christians, too. Earlier this year, the millennial-oriented, faith-and-culture publication, Relevant […]

What Can I Learn About God from Orphans?

By on October 20, 2015 in Theology with 4 Comments

A blond-headed, blue-eyed daughter, I looked like the perfect blend of my mother and father. As others commented on the likeness, my parents smiled inwardly knowing that it was their heavenly Father who had chosen the custom matching of their adopted daughter as He had “made a home for the lonely” (NASB) or, according to […]

Theology of a Red Door

According to early American history, a red door signified that a home was welcoming. The red door was a way of communicating to tired travelers, traveling by horse and buggy, that this was a safe place to rest for the night and have a warm meal. In Scotland, homeowners would paint their front door red […]

Today school is back in session, and I have a confession to make. While I love all of my students equally, and consider it one of the greatest privileges in the world to get to invest in these women and pray for them throughout the semester, the truth is that there are some types of […]

Can There Be Real Equality with Distinctions?

Distinction: We believe that God has given women and men distinctive roles within the family and the church; that these roles were intentionally created and given prior to human sin; that according to God’s design, these roles are interdependent but not interchangeable (Gen 2:18-25; 1 Cor 11:3, 8-9, 11-12; 1 Tim 2:12-14). My Personal Journey […]
