The Search for True Joy

Apr 24, 2017

Leave a comment below to support and thank her for sharing this with us!   It’s something everyone is longing for, craving, desperately searching for, and can’t live without. Joy. “We have it over here!” […]

Expectations, Fears, and Golden Calves

Mar 3, 2017

“Why God? Why?” I prayed. What was wrong with my plans? I expected my life to follow this path. I expected to be in a different season of life right now. I expected [fill in the blank]. I was frustrated and hurt because things weren’t going my way, and I couldn’t understand what God was […]

Broken and Healed by the God of Bethel

Feb 18, 2017

“I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed the pillar and where you made a vow to Me. Now arise, get out of this land, and return to the land of your family.” (Genesis 31:13 NKJV) “I am the God of Bethel.” Why does God say this? What is the significance? Bethel was the […]

What It Really Means to Be Brave

Nov 21, 2016

It’s Saturday morning. I’m sitting in my small temporary room with a gentle California breeze cascading through the cracked window. The sky is blue, the birds are awake, and I’m reflecting on the reality that just last year, this strange and tropical place became my new home. My forever home is 2,000 miles away in […]

Will God Make My Dreams Come True?

Oct 10, 2016

Dreams have been on my mind a lot lately. Not the kind you have while you sleep, but the kind that keep you from sleeping. The kind that make you stay up all night imagining what you could be, what you could do, and what you could accomplish. The ones that make your heart beat […]

Aligning the Heart

Sep 6, 2016

“If the heart is a compass, what is it tuned to?” These were the words my pastor spoke not too many weeks ago, and I couldn’t shake them from my mind. As a Christian, I like to think that God is the “True North” of my internal compass. In reality I often find that deep down […]

Draw Back, or Draw Near

Jul 14, 2016

I still remember the feeling, even though I was only 15 years old. I remember sitting in church, in that auditorium, and wishing I could disappear, wishing I could sink right into the floor. The pastor was talking about discipleship, and that a real disciple of Jesus would read their bible every day. And many […]

Surrender: Collapsing into Him

May 19, 2016

He said it suddenly, and the words pierced through my heart. “I just want you to be open to God about your future as I am.” Inside, I wanted to protest, and say, Yes, I’m just as open as you are. I’m completely surrendered to God’s plan. But instead, tears came. We sat on top […]

Dear You

Feb 18, 2016

Dear You. I started a letter to myself because I knew it was what my heart needed. I spent the week before in the whitespace of Colorado, hiking in the snow. It was there, in the openness of God’s creation, that I saw my soul stripped bare. You know, those moments when your heart bubbles […]

Love in Jars of Clay

Feb 4, 2016

“I love you.” I stare into his brown eyes – get lost in the pools of them. They are gentle and strong; dark brown, but a hazel glow blazes forth when I stay and linger long enough. Those words took some time to say – I remember a time when they didn’t roll off my tongue […]

What is Abundant Life? (part 1)

Jan 25, 2016

Question: are you living an abundant life? Or maybe here’s a better one: what is an abundant life? I look at my life in comparison to those around me, let’s be real here, we all do it.  Sometimes I can get to thinking that my life doesn’t measure up.  Then there are other times where […]

The Power of Words

Jan 18, 2016

Whose words are you listening to? Choosing to believe that you are who the world, the enemy, and your flesh says you are instead of who God says you are will immobilize you, create a false reality, and keep you from knowing God’s will for your life. Isaiah 26:3-4 says, “You will keep him in […]
