Growth is painful.

Just ask that tiny seed that gets shoved into the ground. Plunged into the darkness. There's no light - how can anything possibly grow here? Then that seed casing begins to crack open. More pain. Why is this happening? Nothing feels right. Nothing f...

"We always live what we believe; we just don't always live what we profess we believe."

I read that Dallas Willard quote last night and it has been swirling around in my mind ever since. Where is the disconnect between what we profess we believe and the way we are livin...

I've always been proud of the fact that I can somehow squeeze 48 hours worth of work in to 24 hours. I remember in high school being the one who woke up super early for a quick run around the neighborhood, read my Bible and journaled, all before getting to school aroun...

As a little girl, I attended a Christian school. Scripture memorization happened on a weekly basis, and I am so thankful now for those verses that are so deeply ingrained in my heart and mind.

When we chose to send our children to public school, I knew we would have to...

Eight years ago, my husband and I sat in our pastor's office for premarital counseling. We had been friends since middle school and knew pretty much everything there was to know about each other. Nevertheless, our pastor had us complete a personality profile. He looked...

Once a time, I had a blog. I loved that blog. That blog loved me. 

Writing is my creative release. I loved putting my thoughts "on paper". It helped me think through experiences, and helped me gain perspective.

I loved the interactive nature of blogging. I loved getting...
