Christmas was always special to me growing up. It didn’t matter how awful my year was or what I was going through, there was some joy in the air. There was such a palpable, real holiness to the season that I could feel. The magic in the lights and the tree, the coziness of a … Continue reading “The Hope of Advent”
What does “Biblical womanhood” look like to you? When you hear those words, what comes to mind? Do you picture a woman tucking her kids into bed, cleaning her sink? Maybe you see the Proverbs 31 lady rising before dawn. Maybe Jesus shows you a picture of yourself, right where you are, in the very … Continue reading “What Is Biblical Womanhood?”
My Bible is one of my prized possessions. Nothing brings me peace quite like sitting down and meeting God in its pages. What a beautiful thing we so easily take for granted, access to a Bible.

There’s so many inspirational posts for new moms, great moms, those who’ve lost their moms, but … Continue reading “The Hidden Pain Behind Mother’s Day”

The beautiful story is found in John 4 and usually has these highlights: Samaritan. Adulteress. Unworthy. Woman. Sinner. Shame. Shame. Shame.
