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…

Are You Truly Willing to Trust God?

Are You Truly Willing to Trust God?

“But if you could choose, would you choose to be discontent until you receive a baby, or to trust God and never receive a baby?” His question caused me to pause for thought, making me uncomfortable as it sliced through my self-deception. If God told me that trusting him meant I would never receive a…

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…

Wrestling By Faith

Wrestling By Faith

I’ve found wrestling with God to be a common occurrence in this season of life. My faith often feels frail as I hope each month for new life to begin in my womb, only to look upon a negative pregnancy test. God continues to show me my utter lack of control over the conceiving and…

When God’s Calling is to Wait

The Pursuit of Happiness and Why Its Pursuers Aren’t Happy

The Pursuit of Happiness and Why Its Pursuers Aren’t Happy

It’s a vicious cycle, really. Climbing the “corporate ladder”, trying to get your foot in the door before anyone else. It’s even on display in the festivities of Black Friday, which seems to be a bigger “holiday” than Thanksgiving lately. What’s behind the arguing and backstabbing we witness so frequently? People striving for whatever they…

God Will Use Your Brokenness

God Will Use Your Brokenness

This article was originally written for Broken Beautiful Bold Ministries here. We are a broken people, am I right? Each of us come from various backgrounds and upbringings that shape our character and struggles. We have been broken by others, broken by this world and are undeniably broken at the core of our being. For the…

A Heart Prone to Discontentment

A Heart Prone to Discontentment

For 3 years, I have waited. Sometimes, I waited well. Other times…not so much. I’ve had dreams and desires for ministry that have gone unfulfilled and my heart has many times been frustrated. I wanted to devote time to writing and ministry. But I had to work. I wanted to be a homemaker and actually…
