We all have those passages of the Bible that we really cling to, or that really stick with us through life, and 1 Corinthians 13 has not been that passage for me. Honestly, I always thought it was a little superfluous. It wasn’t necessarily necessary. It was for those passionate people that needed that extra encouragement that … Continue reading Loving Like Jesus Loves
It’s autumn. My favorite time of the year. Along with sweater weather, leaves changing to shades of crimson, pumpkin spiced everything, endless “I’m thankful” posts from everyone in my Facebook newsfeed, lots and lots of rain, bonfires with friends, sunsets at 5pm, and crispy cool starry nights, it’s the season to be thankful. With all … Continue reading Tis the Season to Be Thankful
In the time it took me to write this blog post, 30,085 children were aborted in my country. That’s 38 lives for every word that you will read here. But I don’t care. Here is a meter of abortions this year in the United States. If you can stand it, go look. (If you can’t … Continue reading Abortion is Rampant, and I Don’t Care

We work out, we wear the right clothes, we act like we have it all together, but we … Continue reading 3 Steps to True Beauty: what the world doesn’t want you to know
I can’t help but notice our ability to find the worst in everything. It must take some sort of talent to be able to so carefully ignore every blessing in our life. We say life is tough, we say life is stressful, and nothing goes the way we plan, yet every time something good happens, … Continue reading Happiness is a choice, so make it.
My emotions do not define God. God is God and He always will be. What we say— what we think—what we want— will never change who He is. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. My emotions do not define truth. God’s word is truth. Whether I like it or not, His word defines … Continue reading Truth is truth.
This year we celebrate the 239th year of independence. In the beginning, the pilgrims wanted a free country where they could voice their opinions without fear of imprisonment, they wanted to be able to hold their convictions without fear of being hated. When they began to draft The Constitution of the United States of America, … Continue reading Freedom or Tolerance: choose one
As we adjusted to life with the new baby, our days were filled with many tears, questions and praying. We shared the news with close friends and family who joined with us in praying and lifting up Rowan to the Lord. Everyone said the same thing “God must have a big plan for him.” It … Continue reading rowan’s story pt. 2
I think I might have been a pretty mean little kid. We were watching some old home video a while back from when I was about 2 and Alex was just learning to sit up and crawl around. In the video, Alex is sitting up, peacefully playing with his toys. He had two or three … Continue reading What Does It Mean To Forgive?
