Are you prioritizing your Sabbath? I know this question may catch you off guard but truly think about this. I’m aware that I’m not the only one feeling this way, but September has flown by. It seems like just yesterday when Starbucks unveiled its Fall Drink Menu, signaling the true beginning of autumn for me. But I’ve noticed one thing about myself since the Fall has begun to swing into its rightful place. I am tired. Now, I can make... Read more

To the Christian Teacher at the Beginning of a New School year, please hear me when I say that I see you. As a teacher in public education, I often feel that Christians in this field are overlooked. Public Education has an image for many Americans that displays a very left-leaning stereotype of educators. This can leave many Christians in education feeling unseen. I want to leave a list of prayers you can pray over your staff, students, or fellow... Read more

With Fall right around the corner, it’s easy to prepare ourselves for the shift in weather. I have been lighting my “Apple Pecan Turnover” candle almost daily to submerse our apartment in the fall scent. Decorating our home with orange and green, tiny pumpkins, and baking Apple Crisp are some of my favorite ways to equip my home for the new season. What if we look at our prayer life the same way that we prepare our home for a... Read more

As Christians, worship is a key part of displaying our gratitude and thankfulness to God. The term “worship” may bring up a specific image. For some, they may think of a group of songs sung on a Sunday morning. Others may think of a hobby that they take time each day or week to dedicate to the Lord.  The things we spend our time on show our heart’s intentions. If we spend time honoring God, then it is clear that... Read more

My generation, Gen Z, takes pride in their accomplishments of discovering different ways to explore gender and gender roles. Growing up, I could watch my peers discover different aspects of themselves. However, I often needed clarification on the Biblical principles I was learning about not matching up with their discoveries. I had heard of Biblical womanhood but struggled to find examples of that in school. It was not until college that I truly realized that I wanted to step into... Read more

When it comes to studying the Word of God, I find myself where many people do: stuck on what to study and how to study it. As an English teacher, I find that studying a text meant to be the foundation of my life can be challenging without the right tools. Here are three bible Study tools that I’ve found to be critical in my journey of keeping a consistent reading and study schedule with God. The Bible App Shocking,... Read more

Spiritual Rest is something that I have always struggled with. Recently, my husband and I attended the Worship Together conference at The Belonging Co in Nashville, Tennessee. This was our second time participating in this conference. It has consistently been a source of rejuvenation for our relationship. During this particular time, many speakers spoke on the importance of Rest. As Christians, we often overlook the significance of the seventh day during Creation when God rested (Genesis 2:2-3). As our goal... Read more

To me, there is nothing that shows me more issues in a marriage than how the spouses speak about each other. It feels like everywhere I turn, I hear a spouse complain about their husband or wife– and when challenged to change they feel unheard. Why is it that in order to feel heard or seen by others, we must feel supported in our sinfulness and gossip? Our culture surrounding honoring and respecting our husbands in particular has drastically changed... Read more

In our culture, where styles, diets, and habits change frequently, young Christians often try to make Christianity “trendy.” While I appreciate their sentiment and their devotion to the Gospel, it’s important to remember that the Gospel is never trendy. Christianity won’t be trendy for various reasons, especially as stated in the Scriptures. We’re assured that our faith will offend others, and the truth we base our beliefs on will go against the prevailing culture in many ways. Christianity is counter-cultural... Read more
