Hero

“She needed a hero, so that’s what she became.” “I complete me.” “You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.” These and more quotes like these were notes I jotted down in a quotation journal of sorts I maintained while going through my divorce. They sustained me through the heart wrenching process.… Continue reading Hero

Everything Is Broken

I think we call could agree that 2020 didn’t reintroduce the roaring 20s that we were expecting. The only roar is the wail of brokenness that seems to be radiating from every corner of the earth. A global pandemic kept us isolated while some died. People lost jobs and the economy began to spiral. The… Continue reading Everything Is Broken

Eyes Wide Open Faith

I had the best idea of an intro statement which had an incredible story behind it for this blog. I heard it first in my teenage years dramatically recanted in a sermon. The story broke me down into tears. It dramatically illustrated a point that, quite frankly, fit perfectly into the point of my blogpost.… Continue reading Eyes Wide Open Faith

Get Ready

When I was 16, I began working at a greenhouse. For years after that first year, the lady would continually have me come back and work for her. She must have been quite desperate for help because honestly I am one of the worst people to work in a greenhouse. To this day, if it’s… Continue reading Get Ready

Radical Response

I greatly appreciate my pastor. His preachings are biblical and true. He has wisdom and integrity. His teachings convict me and lead me to live the life God has called me to live. But he does have this flaw: he’s not Jesus. He can’t teach with the authority that Jesus did. While his words and… Continue reading Radical Response

Radical Foundation

I have a dilapidated old basement barn in my back yard. It looks okay from the road because of the steel on the two sides of it, but once you go in the top part, you realize the floor is weak and its starting to fall apart. If you go in the basement, you see… Continue reading Radical Foundation

Radical Discipleship

I was recently asked a serious question to which my answer would entirely depend on whether or not the person asking the question was a true Christian. It was a deep question with eternal implications riding on it. Initially I didn’t want to doubt someone else’s belief in Christ, but it made me uneasy in… Continue reading Radical Discipleship

Radical Teachings

We live in a time where everyone strives to be politically correct. We walk on eggshells in order to not offend anyone. We twist the truth and bend our beliefs in order to fit culture’s mold. But God’s commands aren’t always politically correct. They’re firm and steadfast. They don’t sway with culture norms. Disciples are… Continue reading Radical Teachings

Radical Life

I used to really strive to be enough on my own. I wanted to be a strong, independent woman who didn’t need anybody, especially not a man. I worked hard to be anything but the damsel in distress. I wanted to be the hero of my own story. I tried to live out this pinterest… Continue reading Radical Life

Radical Love

I secretly have always wanted to celebrate Valentine’s day. Maybe it’s my gender or my personality, but there’s something about taking a special day to express to the most important person in your life how deeply you love them. I love the idea of getting all dolled up, getting flowers and a hand written card,… Continue reading Radical Love
