Hope For Women … you’re capable of wonderful things | Angelia White

Life is not always easy—that’s a truth I’ve come to know far too well. As a young girl and into adulthood, I haven’t always had ideal situations occur. I’ve faced instances of abandonment and sexual abuse, leading to brokenness, depression and having to start from scratch. I felt completely alone during my darkest points, and I wasn’t sure where to turn. I never had sisters growing up, but I certainly wished for them. Thankfully, the Lord provided me with the {Read More}

All over the world there are people just like you, wondering … and wandering. Maybe you question why you are here on earth. You have no clue what difference you can make. You want to be a person who can make a difference in the lives of others, but how can {Read More}

4 Ways to be Overwhelmed by God, In the Midst of An Overwhelming World | Hayley DiMarco

For the woman overwhelmed, rest is a fantasy that we imagine would be amazing, but never a possibility. Before I began to seek God for my overwhelmed life, I didn’t even believe in rest. Maybe that’s because I didn’t seem to have enough time for it, but frankly I wouldn’t even have known what to do if I had. It has happened before. There have been times when I have found myself with no deadlines, no pressing responsibilities, and a {Read More}

18 Engaging Resources to Help Every American Understand Black History

  As a white person growing up in California I had black friends, and I thought I understood black history, just from things I’d learned in school. Then, in 2010, my family moved to Little Rock, Arkansas, I started a support group for inner-city teen moms, and we started attending a multi-ethnic church, and I realized I knew nothing at all. What to do next? Educate myself. These are some resources I’ve discovered to help me understand the true history {Read More}

Peace in Every Way | 2 Thessalonians 3:16

2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. Prayer: Dear Jesus, I thank you that you’re the Lord of peace. When I turn to you, it doesn’t mean all my problems will be solved immediately. When I turn to you, it does not mean I’ll have all the answers to my questions or that my worries will vanish like the morning {Read More}

How To Get Things Done Even When You Can’t Clone Yourself

I looked at my friend’s to-do list that she posted on Instagram. “No wonder I’m cracking!” she posted. “I need a clone.” I cringed as I looked at her list. It was long. I also cringed because I remember the feelings that huge of a to-do list brought on. The feeling that I was always behind. The feeling that I was a failure because I couldn’t keep up. And it seemed the more I focused on all the ways I {Read More}

The Great Cover Up | Chrystal Evans Hurst

Selfies. Most of us have taken them. Some of us have taken them seriously. If you’ve ever posted a selfie on social media, you can appreciate the work it takes to get a good one. The lighting has to be right. The angle has to be right. And lord knows, the filter has to be right, too. Selfies are serious business. I’m embarrassed to say there have been times it took thirty snaps to get the one photo I felt was {Read More}
