What Book are You Reading?

“So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.” -James 4:17 I’ve been re-reading one of my old favorites lately: All Creatures Great and Small by beloved country vet James Herriot. It’s a welcome respite from the constant barrage of bad news; a delightful retreat into…

Glass Backwards

Do you ever see pictures of yourself and think “Well, poop.”? Ben and I both have mirrors over our dressers and of course over the sink in the bathroom, but the woman I see in family photos recently looks more like a “before” picture than an “after”. It’s easy to forget and think it’s not…

Me-ology and the Churld

If you are a Christian, and your pastor is preaching anything other than what’s in the Bible, it’s time to find a new church. Today. I recently heard of a local pastor who refuses to officiate any weddings at all because he’s too afraid to stand on Biblical principles and say “no” to marrying couples…

If There Was No Light, They Couldn’t Throw Shade

I have never been so ready for Jesus to come back. Our culture is one where we fight for the “right” to exterminate our own children from our bodies. The enlightened among us let our children pick their gender, take irreversible hormone “therapy” and go in for elective surgery to butcher their bodies; all in…

Real Men Wear Pants

Today I am going to broach my most controversial blog topic yet.. Christian women, what if we let our husbands be the head of the home? I just made a weird sound in my throat. Because this one is hard for me. Try doing your own thing for thirty-nine years, marrying someone who wasn’t even…

The Offended Generation

America. Land of the free and home of the brave. Or is it land of the triggered and home of the perpetually offended? I’m not so sure these days. Ok, ok, before you go get your sensory suit, hear me out. I truly detest hurting people’s feelings. As Christians, we should always love the person…

Start Here

I love the part in the Bible where the disciples just went about their normal lives and tried to be “nice”. They never offended anyone, and they got lots of “likes” on their encouraging and inclusive Facebook posts. Man, they were likeable guys. That’s not how it really went down, though, is it? That story…

Pan-What?

Last night my husband and I watched a clip from an episode of Blue’s Clues. This popular children’s show, targeted at kids age 3-5, was centered on a pride parade, and a drag queen sang out about how proud these different families were to have same-sex parents or even pansexual and asexual family members. Blue’s…

Open-ish

Happy Tuesday. So, because I’m not exactly sure what to write about this morning, I thought it would be a great time to tell you something I’ve avoided talking about. My hooha. More specifically, the improbability that I will be able to have a baby without divine intervention or some pale person in a lab…

My God Story

Guys. I have NEVER had it all together. Not before I was a Christian, and not since becoming one. I fall short every day. But if God can take the mess I was, the girl who thought she had zero value, then he can do the same for you. The amazing thing is, he longs…
