What about when you’re alone with your boyfriend or future boyfriend?
Countless friends have recently asked me this question, and I feel as though it is such a hard battle to face and discuss. I tried my best to be understanding and transparent, and every time I prayed about this for my sweet friends, a word kept coming to my mind: boundaries.

Ok, really…these muffins are a FAVORITE not just because they make my house smell entirely like Christmas, but because they only take me 20 minutes to prep, bake AND clean up!

I grip the handle of the pitcher, a gift from my sweet cousin after her visit as a thank you for our hospitality. It reads simply, “Grace and gratitude.” I traced the design of the wheat, the dot pattern, and each letter, as if trying to remember. That day, I felt neither gracious nor grateful. […]

I could come up with a million different names for this, like Fire Roasted Garden Tomato + Gluten Free Penne Soup with Fresh Basil and shaved parmesan, or Shallot + Fresh Basil Tomato Soup with garlic and cracked black pepper, but I think you get the idea. This soup is basically a bowl full of […]

I’ll be honest. I went through a bit of a grumpy season earlier this year. Do you have those moments when you get a bit of vision, a glance of a dream, and all you want to do is run toward it? But instead, you turn around and run straight into a wall? That was […]

In 2 Kings 6:1-7, there’s a very interesting little story.  There’s really nothing that precedes it or comes after it to show us why it’s actually in the bible. Elisha is living in a kind of barracks for prophets, and one of them tells him that they want to move to a bigger place.  So […]
