It Can’t Remain Unredeemed: The Impact of the Letter From the Man Who Killed My Parents

I don't even know where to begin. Tears truly roll down my face as I write these words. Within mere hours of publishing last week's post it became the most viewed article that I have ever written. But that is what it so amazing to me, I didn't write it. By the end of the day,… Continue reading It Can’t Remain Unredeemed: The Impact of the Letter From the Man Who Killed My Parents

Jesus is My Why – Overcoming Writer’s Block and Self-Sabotaging Lies

Just a heads up, I'm about to be very honest and vulnerable. I've been struggling lately. Really struggling. In more than one area, but especially and specifically with writing. I haven't written anything or felt like I had anything to write for weeks. I've said over and over to both God and my Husband, Tyler, "I… Continue reading Jesus is My Why – Overcoming Writer’s Block and Self-Sabotaging Lies

To the Man who Killed My Parents…

To the Man Who Killed my Parents, On this day, exactly six years ago, my parents were unexpectedly taken out of my life forever. They weren't taken by cancer or a mass shooting. They weren't martyred on the mission field, killed for the cause of Christ. No, the loss of my parents is due solely… Continue reading To the Man who Killed My Parents…

Why Change is Necessary and Beautiful

    Change. It is often unwelcome, yet always inevitable. It is often unexpected, but always an adventure. It is sometimes good and sometimes bad, but it is always a life-changing experience. No matter how hard we fight or pray, we cannot prevent change. And, over the last few years, God has shown me that… Continue reading Why Change is Necessary and Beautiful

This One’s for You

  This one's for the skeptics. For the doubters. For the unbelievers. I know sometimes we Christians seem a little crazy, a little eccentric. Sometimes we come off a little strange for believing in and trusting a God that we can't see. Sometimes it doesn't make sense when something bad happens and we say, "God… Continue reading This One’s for You

More than just a Dream

God spoke to me in a dream last night. He told me a scripture to read and it changed my life forever. When I woke up this morning I was all ready to get up and read this Scripture. Ready to have a life (and likely WORLD) changing moment. As I laid in bed for… Continue reading More than just a Dream

Freedom = Life

For the last few years I have chosen a word at the beginning of each year to represent what I hope to experience in the New Year. 2015 was freedom, and God absolutely met and exceeded every expectation. God delivered me from so many things last year, broke so many chains that I didn't even… Continue reading Freedom = Life

Emmanuel ♡

Emmanuel - God with us. I love the heart of Christmas. I love that Jesus loves us so much that He chose to leave the glory of Heaven, where angels worship Him constantly, to become a baby born in a stable, who would grow up to be a man abused and killed for our salvation.… Continue reading Emmanuel ♡

Be Born in Me

When the angel told Mary that she (a virgin) would bear, not only a son, but THE Son of God, Mary listened and willingly accepted what was told to her. But you know in the moment she couldn't have fully grasped what was being said. A young girl could not have fully comprehended what had… Continue reading Be Born in Me
