Your season of disappointment is actually an appointment with Holy Spirit.

In 2018, I joined (and committed to) Crossfit. I also met my physical therapist, who would not only help me overcome chronic knee pain and get back to doing all the things I love, but also later became my coach. I also met my nutritionist, who temporarily wrecked my whole life and taught me toContinue reading “Your season of disappointment is actually an appointment with Holy Spirit.”

No matter what role you play in the life of your church, it matters.

Chances are, you’re headed to church at some point today. For some of you, you’ll stand on a stage and lead worship or preach the message. Others of you might hold a baby, play games with a group of preschoolers or make a kid with special needs feel like a million bucks by meeting himContinue reading “No matter what role you play in the life of your church, it matters.”

No goal is too big for the confidence God created you to have.

It’s a terrible time to talk about goals. It’s Saturday. It’s July. It’s the 6th day of the month. Today is the kind of day many of us are believing the lie we already failed and we should either give up or wait for Monday, August 1 or January to start attacking the thing weContinue reading “No goal is too big for the confidence God created you to have.”

Setting boundaries around social media use doesn’t make you spiritual. It makes you healthy.

Are you one of those people who think you’re superior because you drink your coffee black? Or you buy organic? Or you don’t have cable? News flash: You’re not. And the next time you announce on social media that you are going on a social media fast, I hope someone slaps you. Not really hard.Continue reading “Setting boundaries around social media use doesn’t make you spiritual. It makes you healthy.”

You are only as BIG as the DREAM you DARE to LIVE

Have you ever made a vision board full of these magazine-worthy pictures of a glamorous life you thought would be amazing, but none of those things ever came to fruition? Maybe you envisioned the wedding of your dreams? Or launching your own business? Or building your dream home? Maybe it was being debt-free? Running aContinue reading “You are only as BIG as the DREAM you DARE to LIVE”

Job 42 Moments

A couple months ago, I had a vision of a conversation God and Satan were having about me. It looked a lot like the one they had about Job in Job 1. God: “From where do you come?” Satan: “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” God: “Have you considered My servantContinue reading “Job 42 Moments”

Don’t fall asleep on Jesus

Let’s talk about a comeback story. Or two. It’s Good Friday, which means we are spending the weekend remembering and celebrating the ultimate comeback story. Our Father in Heaven loves us so much that He sent His Son to live, serve, die and rise again for us. Let’s get something straight right now. God didn’tContinue reading “Don’t fall asleep on Jesus”

Be a beginner again

It’s okay to be a beginner again. It’s a skill actually. If you can get good at not being the smartest person in the room on something, you are going to learn a lot of really great things. The problem is we don’t like being beginners. It’s uncomfortable. It doesn’t feel good to not doContinue reading “Be a beginner again”

Say yes one more time.

A few months back, I shared pieces of my story with fatherlessness (Abandoned and adopted. Twice. and Abuse lies.). I saved the hardest piece for today. It’s been five years since Bucky fell out of the sky. I spent my entire childhood begging God to be a daddy’s girl. When I was a little girl,Continue reading “Say yes one more time.”

Stop being busy

One of the saddest things I hear is when I ask people how life is and their response is, “busy.” “Busy” implies they are running from thing to thing, commitment to commitment, and not enjoying it. They always have that look on their face and that tone in their voice. That feeling like it’s justContinue reading “Stop being busy”
