An open letter to the prodigal daughter who is tired of striving and just wants to come home

  Dear Sister, I know your heart is breaking. I know you are tired. Please come home.

Exchanging the good for the best

Exchanging the good for the best

Do you thrive on being being busy? Do you go through life at a break-neck speed? Does the concept of ‘enough time’ seem elusive?

My New Year’s resolutions and a mission I have chosen to accept

The New Year is often looked at as a point in time when we get to start fresh on a clean slate. The old year is behind us, the new one is before us. Blank pages of life are anxiously awaiting to be filled. When we make New Year’s resolutions, it’s often something that we KNOW needs change.

Dealing with anxiety and depression as a Christian

Dear Christian struggling with anxiety and depression, You’re not alone. I know what it feels like to struggle.  I know what it is like to feel the pressure in your chest, not be able to breathe, and shake to the point you can barely hold on to a glass.

Are you a spiritual toddler? – Learning to walk in faith

“For we walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7 As followers of Christ, we are under constant scrutiny by the world. Given the current climate in the world right now, many aren’t just watching us, they are waiting to see us fail.
