What You Do is Not Your Worth

What You Do is Not Your Worth

When I graduated college I didn’t know what I was going to do next. I didn’t have an answer to the question, “so what do you do?” Our culture values what people do more than the person. God values something different.

Lay Your Burdens Down

Lay Your Burdens Down

I have to walk a few blocks from my car to my apartment. It's almost impossible to carry the groceries in from that distance. I figured out a way so that I don't have to carry the groceries a few blocks. Just like groceries, we carry burdens in life that we don't need to be carrying.

Your Life Smells of God's Love

Your Life Smells of God's Love

​I was walking in a smelly high school gym when a cheerleader started asking me questions about my faith. I barely remember what I said, but she did. I recently heard from her and this is what she said.

Do the Impossible

Do the Impossible

​My day job is working as a radio sound engineer. I remember the first time a radio emergency happened at my job. I was panicking. I yelled out, “I can’t do it!” I don’t know what to do.” I don’t remember what went wrong. I probably accidentally played the wrong song on the radio air waves. My...

How to Deal with People Who May be Power Hungry

How to Deal with People Who May be Power Hungry

​Jesus knew who is ultimately in power. Not a human, not a fallen angel, but God. C’mon, can I get an amen!? What!? Yes! Praise God! AND Jesus came to overcome the world. It’s already been won. He didn’t have to prove anything. And believer, neither do you.

The Bible Verse You Need to Know Before You Date

The Bible Verse You Need to Know Before You Date

I get many questions about dating. I love these! So fun! And occasionally I’ll get a text from a girl who is going on her first ever date. We’ll go have coffee and talk about the guy, what the parents think, where is the first date going to be, what will she wear… all of the exciting fun things....

Fear of Failing

Fear of Failing

​Being present may help you with your fear of failing. I wrote down some lessons I learned from watching the Michael Jordan documentary. You would be surprised how he faced fear is similar to how God wants us to face our fears.

When You Wear a Mask

When You Wear a Mask

​Part of my testimony is being freed from perfectionism. If this is something you struggle with, you probably know how it feels to put on a mask to hide your imperfections. Christ came to pay for your sins, and we will grow if we abide in Him and confess our sins. He can free you from the chains...

Dad, You Matter

Dad, You Matter

​My father-in-law played a crucial part in my husband understanding grace. I am forever thankful. My husband told me the story while we were cooking dinner in our small kitchen. I teared up. Fathers, you matter. You can have generational impact for the Lord. Keep walking with the Lord. Happy...

Your Words Matter

Your Words Matter

​I've walked away from conversations feeling like I shouldn't have said anything! I'm sure you've had that feeling too. Usually this happens to me when I'm talking too much about myself. There's an example in the Bible of how we can use our words to glorify God and not...

A Different Type of Peace

A Different Type of Peace

​What is peace and is it working for us? Those are the thoughts I have about peace. When I took a deep dive into what the Bible describes as peace, it's not at all what a hippie with a yoga mat would say. Jesus promises that He will give us peace.

Why We Should Laugh

Why We Should Laugh

Laughter is good medicine. You've heard this before right? Psychologists agree. Did you know God laughs? We are talking about why it's good to see God laugh in the Bible and why we might be able to join Him.

What Does Repentance Look Like?

What Does Repentance Look Like?

​Jesus called us to repent and believe. What does repentance actually look like in our lives? Recently someone illustrated repentance to me in a way that I will never forget. Repentance looks like turning around because your life depends on it. Just like turning around if you were going head on...
