Take Me to Church

When I rededicated my life to Christ a few years ago, I bought into a lie that seems to be a prevalent mindset for those who are young in their commitment to following Jesus. I believed I didn’t need the church. I believed I could get just as close to God through my own study… Continue reading Take Me to Church

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 Intimacy

I don’t believe in the concept of soul mates. Before you jump ship and assume I don’t solely love my husband, hear me out. There is nothing biblical about God designing one particular person for you to marry. It is, in fact, contrary to grace to expect another imperfect human being to meet our own… Continue reading A Better Wife in Intimacy

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

Jesus in the Street, Freak in the Sheets: how Song of Solomon is making me a better wife

I’ve been reading through my bible starting in the old Testament. As Ecclesiastes came to a close and Song of Solomon came up, I determined I was going to see what God’s heart is in this obscene book. I read through looking up in my notes all the oddities but it still seemed way past… Continue reading Jesus in the Street, Freak in the Sheets: how Song of Solomon is making me a better wife

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

Starving for Control

I spent an extended period of my life working to overcome my eating disorders. I went to great lengths to practice self love and self care and implement certain disciplines in order to overcome anorexia, bulimia, and orthorexia. Yet nothing truly seemed to work. I found myself shifting from one form of eating disorder to… Continue reading Starving for Control

All Things Work for Good: 2019 closing and 2020 beginning

Cuddled up on the couch mulling over the past year whilst sipping on sleepy time tea, I am left with a smile on my face. This was not the year I expected. Rather, it was much better than I ever imagined. The verse that stands out to me that most accurately sums up the past… Continue reading All Things Work for Good: 2019 closing and 2020 beginning
