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

Radical Fasting

Fasting for religious purposes has seemed to become less normal in modern times. That being said, I don’t think Jesus would give us a protocol for fasting if he did not intend on us doing so. While this is different than other blogs on the Sermon on the Mount, I believe first I need to… Continue reading Radical Fasting

Radical Perfection

How quick are we to rise to our own defense yet slow to give love? As Christians, we should let God be our defense and love others without hesitation or condition. But I think most people have been hurt by someone who professes christianity yet fails to live it out in these aspects. In the… Continue reading Radical Perfection

Radical Commitment

Jesus tackles some difficult subjects in the Sermon on the Mount. This week’s blog highlights a section that is no exception. In fact, I prayed pretty hard on how to write this in the most palatable way possible as to not step on any toes. But I believe Jesus preached this sermon in the order… Continue reading Radical Commitment

Radical Reconciliation

I believe we need routine heart checks. I’m not speaking of our physical heart, though there is merit in that, but I’m more so thinking of our soul heart where our emotions and thoughts lie. The Bible says out of our hearts flows the wellspring of life (Proverbs 4:23). The thoughts and meditations of our… Continue reading Radical Reconciliation

Radical Fulfillment

This next section in the Sermon on the Mount is simple and straightforward, yet we tend to deeply struggle with it. Do not think I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear,… Continue reading Radical Fulfillment

Radical Connection

“Can you hear me now? Good.” Most of us remember this iconic Verizon commercial. While the advertisement did it’s job by permanently implanting its phrase in our brains, it seems a bit ironic. A cellphone company that boasts on its service stating obviously in its commercial that it lost service at one point. Perhaps even… Continue reading Radical Connection

Radical Unmasking

“God’s blessing can’t get on who you’re pretending to be: just who you really are.” – Levi Lusko Who are you? Really. Deeply. Who truly are you. Not who you are pretending to be. When you take off your mask of performanism or people pleasing, what are you left with? Where us your heart at?… Continue reading Radical Unmasking

“If I were to take spoons and pluck your eyes out, it’d be more embarrassing and uncomfortable than painful because your eyeballs would be dangling out of their sockets by strands.” The things teenage brothers say to their 5 year old little sister to scare them for eternity… For some reason, perhaps the scaring, these… Continue reading Radical

War of the Mind, Battle of the Plate

“You’re gorgeous! Just stop.” It never mattered how many times I heard these words or similar while battling a disordered relationship with food and my body; they didn’t help. Regardless of how desperately I wanted to have the words penetrate my heart or how hard I tried to just stop restricting or binging and purging… Continue reading War of the Mind, Battle of the Plate
