Recently, I chatted with Jordan Frye of Urban Rescue about the band’s new album, Wild Heart, set to be released on May 6th. I quickly fell in love with this album, especially their single “His Name”. Jordan’s parents divorced when he was in high school, and his mother was diagnosed with Leukemia shortly afterwards. He’s been through his share of heartache, his faith has been tested and the pain has pushed him closer towards God. There’s a saying that suffering will either make you bitter or… Read more

Charles Spurgeon’s meditation on April 21st was such a sweet reminder of the intimacy of our Savior! The last line was my favorite!! “A living Redeemer, truly mine, is unspeakable joy!” Hope it’s an encouragement to your soul! I know that my Redeemer lives. The essence of Job’s comfort lies in the little word “my” – “my Redeemer” – and in the fact that the Redeemer lives. Oh, to get hold of a living Christ. We must get a share in… Read more

Recently, I was having a conversation with one of the pastors at my church in Washington D.C., and we were talking about how one of the hardest things to truly believe is that God loves you. I wish I didn’t struggle as much as I do to believe God’s love for His children, but if I’m being honest, it is a struggle. My soul needs constant reminders of God’s character! I wanted to share a Charles Spurgeon meditation from his evening devotional a… Read more

Citizen Way sophomore album, 2.o  is set to released on March 11th. The band is currently on the Rock & Worship Roadshow tour with Newsboys, Mandisa, Phil Whickham and others.   Their album feels like catching up with an old friend, hearing tales of sorrow, growth and change. I had the change to chat with Ben Calhoun, lead singer of the band about the album, their music,  and the heartbreaking miscarriage that sparked the first single off the album, “When I’m With You.” Interviewing him felt like talking… Read more

They are currently touring on the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular alongside Skillet, for King& Country,… Read more

Valentine’s Day was yesterday, and my social media was flooded with pictures of people’s significant others. While I’m single this Valentine’s Day, I enjoyed being with my church family and getting my first massage with a girlfriend. Even thought I don’t have a significant other, I’m blessed beyond belief to have a men in my life who care for me well. Instead of sharing my words, I thought it would be encouraging to share what Christians brothers had to say to… Read more

Charles Spurgeon is near the top of my list for favorite authors and pastors. Known as the “Prince of Preachers,” Spurgeon articulately communicated God’s truth in unique ways that deeply connected with people. This morning, while reading his “Morning by Morning” devotional, it struck me that what Spurgeon is talking about, is truly the key to successfully living the Christian life. Christianity is not all sunshine and rainbows. Quite often, it’s the opposite; being a Christian involves taking up your cross and following your… Read more

I’m so excited to welcome one of my dearest friends to Patheos today – Anna Cribb. She and I attended Liberty University together, lived in DC at the same time, and have shared many heart-to-hearts and laughs. Anna is one of most “real” people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing – her honesty and vulnerability are some of the things I like most about her. Enjoy her thoughts! Is God Really Good? Have you asked this question? I have. We… Read more
