Jonah – The right man for the job

Jonah – The right man for the job

For the past 3 weeks in church, we’ve been talking about Jonah, and if you’ve ever been within 200 yards of a bible teaching church (or within 1,000 yards of a rowdy group of VBS kids) you know the story.  God wants Jonah to go to Ninevah, Jonah is afraid/against the idea so much so that he runs 3,000 miles in the OPPOSITE direction to try and escape.  Nowadays we can roll our eyes at this story, because most of…

What do Donald Trump, Lauren Daigle and Pastor Steven Furtick have in common?

What do Donald Trump, Lauren Daigle and Pastor Steven Furtick have in common?

You may be saying at this point, “what’s up with her ridiculously long blog titles lately?”, and you’d have a valid question.  Sometimes, though, a short and sweet title won’t do.  Sure, it may be keyword rich and easy to rank on google, but that’s not really my aim.  I’m writing what comes to me, when it comes to me and as it comes to me, and this was next.  It’s actually been a few weeks in the making, so it…

Write what’s on your heart | Blogging in today’s world

Write what’s on your heart | Blogging in today’s world

I’ve had it on my heart to write for awhile now, and what I most enjoy writing about is whatever is on my heart, specifically in that moment.  I’ve attempted to write about whatever is blowing around in the wind on a given day, maybe a popular trend or an information piece, but I’ve found that I mostly come up dry and unsatisfied.  My work is never as fruitful, and the end product isn’t nearly as satiating.  Most articles and books…

Am I more than just the average of every high and every low?

Am I more than just the average of every high and every low?

“Am I more than just the average of every high and every low?”  More than a ridiculously long blog title, or an offshoot →(for copyright reasons) of a catchy rhyme from Lauren Daigle’s song You Say, this is something I think most – if not all – of us struggle with on a daily basis.  It’s something that’s plagued me for awhile, if I’m being honest, and I’ve never been able to put words to it until this morning while…

Overcoming unhealthy mentalities

Overcoming unhealthy mentalities

Paradigm Change Over the past few years, I’ve come to the conclusion (slowly) that when it comes to my diet choices I change my mind like my 7 year old daughter changes outfits. I can be swayed as easily as a boat in a hurricane from a simple Netflix documentary, a convincing Pinterest graphic or the latest diet fad synopsis from a friend. All of this, in an effort to seek health, has left me feeling anything but healthy. This…

Is It Possible to Live Humble and Dream Big?

Is It Possible to Live Humble and Dream Big?

A conflict of interest it would seem, to live a humble life yet have big dreams/goals. From a biblical standpoint, we are to be humble servants, emulating Christ and being very modest about our own esteem.  From a worldly standpoint, we should be proud of our accomplishments, after all we did it, right?  So how do we live this dignified and quiet life, pleasing to the Lord yet chase after our aspirations and accomplish something bigger than ourselves – especially…

Learn From Your Failures | Failure Isn’t Final

Learn From Your Failures | Failure Isn’t Final

Failure.  It’s an ugly word, isn’t it? Ever since we were in elementary school, getting a big fat red F was bad news bears. We want to avoid failure like the plague, but it seems inevitable that we will all face some form of it at a point in our lives, doesn’t it? Why we fail Last summer, a popular article was released from Success Magazine entitled The 7 Reasons Why We Fail, here were the subheadings: Lack of persistence…

My Ectopic Pregnancy Story

My Ectopic Pregnancy Story

* This post contains images that some might find graphic/disturbing. Out of all of the blog post ideas I have jotted down in my Notes, I never fathomed that this was a post I’d be authoring.  In fact, having 3 healthy full-term births in the past gave me confidence that such a thing could never happen to me.  I’m over here thinking I’m fertile myrtle, all my husband has to do is wink at me and BOOM 9 months later we have…
