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.

It's no secret that growing up is hard. It's even more difficult when everyone around you seems to be moving forward, and you're stuck awkwardly stumbling around trying to figure it out on your own. Trust us: you are not alone. And we're here to help, with tips and advice every Saturday to help you prepare for the big things ahead. 

New Series! Adulting 101

browse the series

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.

The Search for True Joy

In our newest Adulting 101 topic, we’re tackling a common issue a lot of teens (and yes, even adults) struggle with: productivity. Making time for the important things and forming healthy, productive habits. Keep reading because our guest author Phylicia has some great wisdom for us!     “I always over-schedule, procrastinate, or just simply […]


Adulting 101

Passion. I’ve always heard that word and felt super inspired. Like wow. Yes, passion, let’s do this thing! But do you ever feel like your “passion” isn’t going anywhere, or isn’t ever enough? I’ve been pursuing a professional career in the performing arts since I was nine, and even before I knew exactly how to […]


Business Tips

One big topic that we consistently hear our community talking about is the struggle with how to study the Bible more in depth. It’s tempting to just “read and go” as we play our audio Bibles while we’re getting ready for the day, or quickly skim over verses with a bowl of cereal. How can […]


Adulting 101

Christianity Isn’t  ‘Insta Pretty.’ Picture this: A group of young women meet up for a Bible study. Upon arrival, each of them orders their caffeinated beverage of choice (in a mug, of course) as they scope out the coffee shop for the best table (near natural lighting, naturally). Once their Bibles, journaling Bibles and coffee mugs […]

If you’re like most young adults, the time is nearing when you need to start thinking about moving out of your parents house and into your own place (say what!?). It’s stressful to think about.

Roll up your sleeves and grab a friend – this is perfect for any girls night, Bible study, or (let’s be real here) a midnight snack! ;) “There is nothing better than a friend, unless […]


Culinary Arts

Are you struggling with figuring out the responsibilities of homemaking, and how to put it into practice as a young, growing woman? Is homemaking all about sweeping and cooking, or is there a greater purpose? For week 3 of our Adulting 101 series, Melanie digs deeper into this important role God has for us, and how […]


Adulting 101

Sometimes I feel I’ve lost my voice. Sometimes I feel like I have nothing to say, no encouragement to give—like I’m in a stuck place and can’t free myself, let alone help someone else find their way. And I wonder why God has called me to this: to be a writer, encourager, empathizer, counselor. To be […]


Heavy Struggles

We’re kicking off week #2 of our ADULTING 101 series with the important – and often avoided – topic of why we tithe. Read this wisdom from our guest author Lauren Dickie on just how to approach this vital part of not only adulthood, but life in general. (Remember: if there’s something you’re struggling with in […]


Adulting 101

I used to think that the Lord kept me away from high mountain tops out of fear. I figured He thought that I would love the view more than I loved Him. I would get half way up and think, “I’ve made it this far, but I can’t keep going. I’m too weak. I don’t […]

Today is the day we’ve been anticipating for months, as we begin our brand new series “ADULTING 101.” As teens transitioning into adulthood, there is no question that you’re facing big changes and tough choices. How do you navigate it all? How do you “adult” in this world every day? We’ve reached out to writers […]


Adulting 101

“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 […]
