When we are weary, when we’re discouraged, when we can’t remember why we took this road in the first place, what do we do?

I get sucked into a routine of striving. I’m trying to get it right. I’m trying to be joyful and have peace and to be content despite everything cu...

If someone were to ask me what I struggle with the most—what I haven’t been able to surrender 100% to my creator and savior, what I don’t want to talk about—I would have to say shame. There are days when shame envelops me like a well-crafted quilt, carefully stitched o...

**Trigger warning for discussion of suicide and mental illness**

It’s been a month, and I haven’t known how to write about it or if I should. Even as I type this, intending to post, I wonder if it’s a mistake.

Recently, I was at an event at a church. Generally, I try to avoid “events,” but this one had tea…so…

I like lists

I like lists so much that I have, on occasion, made lists of lists.

Every day, I wake up with a list in mind of what needs to be done.

I keep two lists taped to my wall at all times.  

God used to do lists. But more recently, he has given us a different method...

Have you been sowing seeds and are still waiting for them to sprout? Have you been working hard towards a call from God and are waiting for the blessings to follow? Does it feel like you’ve been walking through a dark tunnel and you aren’t sure if there even is an end...

I'm noticing a theme. Perhaps you have seen it too. More so even than the usual early-January-new-years-resolution vibe, I’m seeing people wanting, hoping, dreaming, and even expecting more from this year—specifically, expecting more from God this year.
