My Decision NOT to Die

A few nights ago I saw a magazine with the picture of a girl my age and the words, “My Decision to Die” plastered across the cover. Horrified, I turned questioning eyes to the person next to me and they explained that due to the brain cancer that caused... read more

When He Thinks About Me (Psalm 139)

I’ve read Psalm 139 a hundred times about how He knit us together in our mother’s womb and have even wept at the wonder of seeing a baby come into the world. But last night listening to Steffany Frizzell-Gretzinger‘s latest album, folding laundry and... read more

Porn on Paper (Guest Post on Whole Women Ministries)

Sex was not a word I ever remember hearing in my house growing up, yet it was in that very house that I got my education—not through my parents, but under the cover of darkness. Tucked into a forgotten cabinet, a worn-out cardboard box taught me more than I’d... read more

Is That Not Enough For You?

“Am I interrupting anything?” At my editor’s words, I looked around the kitchen I had dove into in hopes of muffling the noise of the TV in the next room. “Ummm . . . not exactly,” I muttered. “I was ummm . . . don’t think any less of me . . . I was watching (insert... read more

Pulling Dragons

Huddled among the couch cushions, the pull on my soul is nearly palpable. My hand pressed against my chest, I shiver, for the air is thick with them—thick with dragons I thought I’d slayed. Thick with dragons I’d told to stay. Thick with dragons I could have sworn I’d tamed.

How a Popsicle Stick Saved My Life

God is looking for people through whom He can do the impossible –

What a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves. (A.W. Tozer)
Here is a piece of my testimony. I hope it encourages you that there IS a God who loves you. The kind of God who watches for you to come back to Him, and will run to you even when you are a long way off.  He’s the kind of God who throws His arms around you when you have done nothing but curse Him. We can NEVER earn His mercy or His love. It cannot be done. He gives it despite us-despite our bitterness, our waywardness, our apathy and fickle hearts. It is a fierce and stubborn kind of love. A love that picks us up, carries us and holds us close to His heart, refusing to give up on us.   (Video by Scott Moore with Surge Digital.)

We are what we believe we are.
