Mother’s Day is the Hardest

Mother’s Day is the Hardest

It seems, even before the first sprout sprang from the ground, indicating spring is near, my heart had already begun to dread what follows April showers. It’s not those beautiful flowers which May typically brings, nor is it the warmer weather I fear. It’s Mother’s Day. The day where churches worldwide will honor the visible…

God Sees the Woman Walking Through Infertility

God Sees the Woman Walking Through Infertility

I held the pregnancy test in my hand and examined it closely. Could there be a faint line? Oh Lord, please let there be a faint line. There wasn’t. It was negative. No baby had taken root in my womb and those supposed symptoms proved to be simply taunting me, giving me false hope that…

Looking Toward a New Due Date

Looking Toward a New Due Date

January 16th 2018. The day our first child was due to enter the world. I realize it’s just an estimated date and they’re rarely correct, but it’s one I’ll never forget. I’m not naive enough to expect that today would be remembered by anyone other than me. Even my husband had to be reminded. It’s…

Even Now We Will Praise Him: The Story of the Children We Lost

Feminism Doesn’t Love You Back

Feminism Doesn’t Love You Back

It seems feminism is the new religion of America. Many young Christian women can be found saying, “I love feminism!” I have to wonder though, does feminism love them back? Modern day feminism is no longer just about gaining women’s rights. Today’s feminist can be seen applauding other women who kill their baby within the…

Don’t Envy the Wicked

Don’t Envy the Wicked

I recently wrote about how comparison kills friendships within the Church. But what about when our hearts envy those outside of the Body? Should we handle it the same way? Is it okay to envy nonbelievers? Both psalmists, Asaph and David, walked through some of the feelings we may have when we’re tempted to envy…

Comparison Killed The Friendship

Comparison Killed The Friendship

I’ve been learning a lot about the art of rejoicing with others lately. And I’m learning it as I walk through a painful loss in my own life. As I watch friends and family receive what was taken from me, temptation weighs heavy upon my shoulders. It’s a temptation most of us wrestle with and…
