Praying Scripture through Seasons of Change

Happy October, friends! It’s only October 4th but I have already made four loaves of pumpkin bread (with chocolate chips, obvs) since the first official day of Fall. I love Autumn.

Death and Taxes: Our Only Certainties?

I suspect you’ve heard the saying, “The only things certain in life are death and taxes”?

Six Ways to be Light in a Dark World

Friends, can I be honest with you today? I have been battling some deep insecurities over the past week. I am not generally an insecure person, but last week my son began preschool and I found myself dreading the meet-and-greet. What if all of the other moms are more put-together than I am? (And by […]

Where Do You Look for Approval?| The Freedom and Joy of Obeying God

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10 ESV) Two Sundays ago, I was baptized at our church. It was incredible and I was far more […]
