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

A Better Wife Because of the Best Husband

How dimentional is your god? If you serve money, it is purely a transactional dimention. If your god is status, you’re stuck with the admiration and acknowledgment of others. If you make your marriage your god, you could argue that it meets multiple needs, but, in essence, we marry because we recognize life with this… Continue reading A Better Wife Because of the Best Husband

A Better Wife in the Long Run

I love that longest married couple’s dance at weddings. I love when the years creep north of 20 and the couples get fewer and fewer on the dance floor. It’s always incredible when the last couple put there has been married for more than 50 years. It’s beautiful to witness a love that has lasted.… Continue reading A Better Wife in the Long Run

A Better Wife in Conflict

I hope this series encourages people. I hope it spurs women to be the wives God calls us to be. I hope it brings clarity to our roles in marriage. But I also hope women aren’t discouraged. I know we’re talking about this “better wife.” I also know its easy to fall short of this… Continue reading A Better Wife in Conflict

A Better Wife in Friendship

I love my single friends. They remind me to serve others and be involved with people outside the four walls of my home. I love my dating friends. They remind me of what that spark and excitement looks like in relationships. But I gotta tell you, there’s no friends like your fellow wife friends. There’s… Continue reading A Better Wife in Friendship

A Better Wife in Pursuit

I have a confession to make. I have a tendency to be lazy. I can be lazy in my marriage. When we first started dating, it was easy to pursue Devin. But as the years went on and as we are now married, its getting easier and easier to simply live in the same house… Continue reading A Better Wife in Pursuit

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
