Friday Faves

Friends, it’s been a minute. I stopped doing the Friday Five when I somehow gathered almost five jobs and now I find myself with only two (sometimes three). Perhaps in my free time, I’ll be able to read more of the internet and share it with you. I’m...
Christian Women and Social Media: Living Your Faith Online

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

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....

lighting the candle

Tweets of the Month Club | May 2018

Listen, May was not the best of months. Twitter was often an accurate reflection of the hurt, the tragedy, the anger that we all felt. For the purposes of this post, we’re going to ignore most of that—not to run away, but because sometimes we just need some...

Hope in the Midst of Lament | Post for LifeWay Women

Photo by Olya /Voloshka on Unsplash   It doesn’t take a lot of searching these days to find lament. Rightly so, because we hear constantly of God’s image bearers being mistreated, killed, wounded, and abused. We lament. This month, as we’re reading through God’s...
