Free Indeed

What does enforcement of face coverings, protest, and Independence Day have in common? I’ll tell you. The concept of freedom. We want to be free to go in public without a mask, free to protest whatever we believe in without consequences, and free as Americans because of the victory in the American revolution. But do… Continue reading Free Indeed

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

Radical Pursuing

I remember when I was a little girl, there was one particular incident I was with my dad somewhere and I ran up to him and asked, “daddy, I’m thirsty! Can you get me something to drink?” He offered me the free hot chocolate the place had, but I didn’t think hot chocolate wasn’t going… Continue reading Radical Pursuing

Radical Sharing of the Gospel

When I was young, I never understood the point of fancy serving wear. What was wrong with presenting dinner in my mom’s beloved, yet worn pots and pans? As I’ve grown, I realize while that 1980s something roasting pan was useful, it didn’t present prime rib well to special guests. The old pot used for… Continue reading Radical Sharing of the Gospel
