Each year we host an extensive retreat that girls all over the country attend, and each year we have an incredible time diving into the Word and exploring our creative talents together. Make new friends, dig deeper in your relationship with Jesus, listen to amazing speakers, and spend 5 days with us in the beautiful mountains of Washington.

Make Homemade Chia Pudding With These 4 Ingredients

A few months ago, at this very moment, I was plugging in my laptop in a cozy little upstairs nook of a giant house and preparing to speak about the gospel, productivity, how those things relate, and why it matters. I was in the hills of Tennessee, pouring my heart out at the fall Delight Retreat. […]

  In the last several years, social media has become a buzzword not only in society, but also in the business world. Social Media platforms are, of course, primarily for individuals, but that hasn’t stopped organizations and companies from jumping on the bandwagon.

Dear Liv, Bad news: you’re not going to get any less awkward. Good news: you’re going to become more confident and embrace “adorkable.” It turns out, boys do like adorkable, so you’re going to be just fine. About boys, we might as well hit that topic right away. Boys are weird. They don’t become less weird […]

Since joining the Delight community in 2013, checking into the Facebook group has become just as much a part of my daily routine as brushing my teeth! Even though I hadn’t met any of these girls personally, we were connected by our desire to follow Christ and our common creative interests and similar day-to-day lives. […]

Through this new season, God has been breaking down old habits that were formed throughout my college years. Although I am extremely thankful for that time in my life, it was […]

There is a reason why I don’t talk about God very much when I talk about mental illness. I think it’s because I’ve felt its sting myself. On hard days—days where panic rose in surges like a loose wire inside my chest, where I felt as though something inside my head had caved in and […]

Heavy Struggles

How many times I’d hovered on the edge of a pool of golden light, craving to step into its glow. Afraid to because I hadn’t been invited – figuratively and literally.

The year 2017 is here and like many of you, I’m making my list of New Year’s Goals. One of those goals being to spend LESS time on social media. But HOW ON EARTH am I supposed to stay connected to people?! How am I supposed to stay up to date on the latest trends?! […]
