Christian Women and Social Media: Living Your Faith Online

  Social media and the internet in general can have a pretty negative connotation these days. Broadcasting our lives online and having access to so much information often fuels issues with identity, bullying, stewardship, anxiety, anger, and more. However, social...

ministry

  This weekend we celebrated the retirement of one of our event team members who keeps everyone safe on the road. He stood at the center of everyone’s attention (a place he hates) and said, “This is a ministry for me.” And it struck me that everyone feels that...

beyond what I can do

  Recently while talking about my job, a friend said something about the gravity of it—handling the Word of God, editing the words of teachers who influence millions around the globe. The gravity, the heaviness, the privilege of this work hits me every so often....

God is faithful.

God is faithful.

I’ve seen the pictures and posts on social media. I’m sure you have, too. Engagement photos, birth announcements, job promotions, new homes, wedding pictures. Then, right there in the caption of the smiling photo: “God is so faithful!” We like...
