Stop stuffing down your emotions

Stop stuffing down your emotions

Throughout my life I’ve experienced seasons when I feel emotionally strong and can handle anything and other seasons when I cry or freak out if the wind blows my bangs out of place…

Obedience Can Bring You Peace

Obedience Can Bring You Peace

Obedience brings peaces? Those are words I never imagined I would say.  I used to get anxious when someone would use the word obey or obedience. It had an extremely negative connotation in my mind. It was associated with losing control, being taken advantage of, and not being respected as an individual. But thankfully, as I matured, I began to understand obedience from a different perspective.  

Your Money Is For Him, Not You

Your Money Is For Him, Not You

What does being wealthy mean to you? Does it mean monetary wealth? Does it mean amassing material possessions?  I could throw a bunch of Christian scripture at you about riches and wealth, but instead, let me share some personal thoughts and #realtalk with you.

How To Live Unbothered

How To Live Unbothered

When we think of finding serenity, we often think of a place. A place where we can escape to find peace and quiet. Learn how to live unbothered no matter where you are.

What's your perspective?

What's your perspective?

I find television shows that show life from different points of view fascinating. One show I’ve really found riveting is called The Affair. This might surprise you, maybe even shock you that I’d admit to watching a show where the central theme is about two people who have an affair and all the consequences of that choice, but let’s be real, most of us don’t spend 100% of our time watching Hallmark movies…

Is Your Hope In Jesus Christ Alone?

Is Your Hope In Jesus Christ Alone?

Is your hope in Jesus Christ alone? In this post, we’ll explore what a Christ-centered hope really looks like. So to get started, let me tell you a weird Bible story. You know, one of those bizarre Old Testament ones that most pastors shy away from? The kind that you read and you don’t know what to do with so....

Can We Really Be Content With God's Love Alone?

Can We Really Be Content With God's Love Alone?

Are you content? I mean really content? The Bible makes it clear that our satisfaction is not contingent on any earthly source. But in Christian circles, our conversations surrounding the issue of contentment are insufficient. We preach that “God’s love is enough.” So what more could we ever want…

Finding Contentment In The Center Of His Will

Finding Contentment In The Center Of His Will

The other day my boss asked me how I liked my job. It was an interesting question because he knows that this is nowhere near where I expected to be at this point in my life.

Finding Freedom From The Anxious Hustle

Finding Freedom From The Anxious Hustle

I don't know about you, but somehow I've completely confused what I was taught about having a strong work ethic with the idea of constant hustle. Do you find yourself going and going, non-stop? Your hustling might be related to a different area of your life, but I hope that in sharing this journey of how God is showing me that having a strong work ethic doesn't mean that I have to hustle non-stop will help you find freedom too.

Embrace This Season

Embrace This Season

It’s just a few days before the first official day of Summer as I sit on our couch, writing this post. The weather has been a hot topic of discussion as my friends from coast to coast have commented on how it still feels like winter. Today it’s actually drizzling here, rain spotting the ground and outside my window one of our trees is steadily dropping its leaves. It reminds me of how life is, how sometimes even though we’re ready for the sun to shine, cold winds blow and storm clouds continue to loom.

Where Is Your Sanctuary?

Where Is Your Sanctuary?

I started this business from a desk in the corner of our living room. It’s a space I share with my husband when he’s watching TV, with our dog who has decided that the comfy rug under my desk is his bed and with piles of laundry every other week. It’s actually a pretty chaotic place to try to concentrate, especially when I frequently stop what I’m working on to read a prayer request, pray or try to listen for God’s leading on if the ideas that are flowing are in line with His Word.

Cultivating Contentment

Cultivating Contentment

“My life may not be going the way I planned it, but it is going exactly the way God planned it.”  Being content in all circumstances isn’t easy. Find encouragement in the story behind the beloved hymn “It Is Well.”
