Something is happening in our young women’s ministry and my spirit says we need to change the current narrative, because we are creating a dangerous habit. I’m afraid we are spending more time admiring the beauty of our decorated journaling Bibles than we are reading and being convicted by the Word.

I love ice skating.  I’ve been going ice skating since I was really little. Although I really like it, I am so, so bad at it.  I grip the wall of the rink and shuffle myself around. If I slip even slightly, I freak out. I went ice skating a few weeks ago with a couple of […]

How Ice Skating Taught Me To Trust God

The glimmer of my tiny Christmas tree lights shimmer and I exhale, writing this to you. We are about to celebrate the greatest of all miracles in a few short days – God coming to earth. It is truly a miracle, that God came down to get us. There are just some times and some seasons […]

I clutch onto the candle, look at the glimmering lights of the tree, and I know what my heart needs most this Christmas and every Christmas. His light to penetrate my dark. Sometimes that’s painful. I spent many mornings this season, in front of this little tree with God, praying like He’s my only hope […]

When I was in 6th grade, I went to my very first dance.  I watched as all of the boys and girls found partners, and began swaying an arms length apart from each other.  My mom had insisted on coming to the dance with me, and she made it clear that if I wanted to […]

Early this morning before my work shift, I was reading through some passages of Scripture, trying to gain my daily strength from the Word. One verse in particular caught my eye and got me thinking. Hard. “A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown.” Proverbs 12:4 Phew. Her husband’s CROWN? The fact that I could be […]

This is the third week of Advent. (already!?) This year threw me off a little bit, since Christmas is on a Sunday this year and Advent began earlier. This week, our focus is joy. Broken and marred by sin, this world was and is in desperate need of our perfect King to come. We marvel […]

We’re excited to bring to you this super simple and straight-forward tutorial form Ariella. She’s going to show us how to shoot with Kelvin temperature. Bonus: Scroll down to watch her step by step video!     Shooting in Kelvin White Balance is pretty amazing, guys! I can’t wait to show you how I do […]

I met this girl many years ago, although I don’t really remember how or when she became such a huge influence in my life. Nonetheless, here we are. She’s ruthless, cold-blooded, and extremely detrimental. She’s insulting and, frankly, she’s just annoying, and I can’t seem to get her words out of my head. I know […]

This flesh life is hard. There’s no other way to say it. There are challenges and difficulties, adversities and loss. There is weeping and mourning, sorrow and pain. But there is a joy beyond all compare in the presence of Jesus Christ. After experiencing loss just a few short months ago, I’ve found myself in […]

Marriage. As a girl, it’s something I always dreamed about. Walking down the aisle in a beautiful white dress with the man of my dreams waiting to say “I do!” The reality is: marriage is made up of two humans and marriage takes work. After 25 years, I can say with all honesty that marriage […]
