If you’ve been around for a while, you know my husband and I are church planters who have moved halfway across the country to plant a church, while also having our two toddlers in tow. And, I’ve just experienced so much as a minister, business owner, mom, and wife with chronic illness and I have … Continue reading Confessions of a Minister Wife/Mom with Chronic Illness
I've been believing a lie my whole life. One that has permeated everything I've ever done. One that has been the driving force for so many of my attempts and my accomplishments. It's the lie of unworthiness. People, mainly good intentioned church people, have told me (and my peers) over and over that I am … Continue reading The Lie of Unworthiness
I have never been so discouraged by the American Evangelical Christian church than I have been this year in 2020. Things have been degrading since President You-Know-Who came out of the woodwork, but it was nothing until this year.

God has recently been working on me about where my focus is to be, and as hard as it is to say goodbye to that platform, I know God was priming me for this one. Now, I won't be taking … Continue reading Announcement Time!

But I do know quite a bit about both, from education and experience. With the upcoming (and now recent) nuptials coming up, I have been toying with a post … Continue reading Marriage & Ministry – Marriage IS Ministry
Purpose, Priorities, and the Fine Line Between Them Ok, guys, before we jump into it, I am so excited about today's (or, tonight's, rather) post. I'm starting a monthly guest spot that I'm calling: Spotlight Sunday. Tonight's first ever Spotlight Sunday is written by one of my very best friends Laura Noelle.

Over on my personal blog, I had written some things recently that may be helpful for some in ministry or helping professions, when looking at things like depression, anxiety, and burn-out, either in ourselves or our clients. As I step out in faith, and grow in the direction of focusing on these areas, I wanted … Continue reading Recent Thoughts
My love works with a missions organization that serves on college campuses. Now that we are joining lives, I will also be a part of this ministry. Which is great, because college age students happen to be one of my favorites to work with, in life and in ministry. Tuesday night, we were at a … Continue reading Comparison
I believe I've shared on this blog (and if not, I have on my personal blog), that I am recently engaged. In two short weeks to be married. As I have taken a break from writing and other things in the past 3 months, God has been working in my heart. When I first started … Continue reading New Direction!
