Two weeks ago, I began praying very specifically over different aspects of my writing and growing a ministry. It has been hard for me to get into a routine which included those important parts of my soul, with all of the transitions we have been experiencing between jobs, gyms, groups, and more. All I want is to … More I Serve a Venti-God [OR] The Journey to Come
I wrote this post on Friday (September 11th). I planned to do a final read-through and then publish it, but instead Jeremiah and I started watching documentaries about 9/11 on the History channel. We say we need to “never forget” but we do. That has become more of a slogan than a reality. I don’t dwell … More An Anniversary to Remember
If your life is anything like mine, it can suddenly turn you on your head, and before you know it, weeks have flown by while you’re still clutching that day-old coffee in hand, waiting to take that tentative first sip, not realizing the time for steam has long since passed you by.
It’s been just over two weeks since She Speaks, the writing conference I attended, has ended and I’m still struggling with the right words to really describe how powerful the experience was. I guess the most succinct way to explain my feelings can be found in a tweet I posted that Friday night: So #spiritually and #emotionally … More God Speaks at She Speaks
Okay, before all of the backlash starts that I will inevitably get from this post, let me begin by saying I fully respect your right to disagree with me. However, disagreement and disrespect are two very different things, so please keep that in mind before you respond. When it comes down to it, that is really what … More 3 Reasons Why More Christians Should Get Behind the SCOTUS Decision on Marriage Equality
I’m not a huge movie buff; don’t get me wrong, I love movies. But I was raised on a few VHS-tape classics (Indiana Jones all the way!) and never spent much time in the theaters because I was too busy with the adventure of my own life. Can I just add a side-note to say that whether … More Indiana Jones, Final Destination, …and Jesus?
Do you ever impress yourself with something you’ve written? For me, it comes when I’m looking back through scribbles in a notebook and suddenly, wow, did I actually have that thought? Who knew I could be profound? The exact second I have that pride-filled musing, I have to give myself a mental slap because it’s clear … More Book Week: The Highlight Reel
Success derives from indifference; at least that’s what society tells us. We don’t like to let our emotions run wild. Instead, we’d rather medicate ourselves into a bland state of mediocrity before our extremes get the better of us. Everything is designed as a sedative. The first time we express “too much” or “too little” energy … More Goldilocks Syndrome
June. Seriously? How did we get here already? I don’t know about you, but I’m in need of a quick pause. With time flying by exponentially-faster each moment, sometimes it really helps me to stop, take a breath, and reevaluate the last few months. Care to join me? *Inhale.* Breathe deep. Let your lungs fill. … More Take A Breath & Reevaluate
Last September was a crazy time for us. Jeremiah and I were starting a brand new chapter in our lives by uprooting the only life we really knew in Pennsylvania, and moving to Charlotte, NC. There were so many moving parts that we needed to stay on top of: apartment hunting, moving costs, job searching, … More Be Still, but don’t Stand Still
