Rarely do my husband and I sleep in separate rooms. This week, though, he is suffering through a double ear infection and a sinus infection. Our little boy is recovering from a virus as well, so I really am taking measures to give my immune system its best shot so we don’t all fall apart. Even still, sometimes I feel … Read More

What You Need to Know When You’re Searching for More

Jesus is the Man of Sorrows, but he’s also the Prince of Peace. He gets where we are and all that we’ve been through. But he won’t leave us stuck. He brings peace and resurrection and hope to anything that brings us low, because he got low with us so that he could raise us up with Him and set … Read More

I heard a message this morning at church that gave me an a-ha moment. It gave words to what I’ve been understanding in my soul for a few years now about processing and living in true transformation through Christ.

What God Thinks is Greater than What I think

I love hearing people’s thoughts. God created us with remarkable minds and has given us the ability to process what we notice and experience in this world thought by thought.

This Stuff is Real

I’m not a theologian. But I am a Christ-follower. Long before I chose Him 29 years ago, Jesus chose me. I was 4 when I decided to follow Jesus. It wasn’t a complicated decision. I hadn’t been into drugs or come from an abusive home or anything like that. My storyline of following Jesus had a pretty steady baseline until … Read More
