Q&A with Dannah Gresh, Author of Secret Keeper Girl

As a mother/daughter relationship coach, Dannah places special emphasis on helping moms raise their tween girls to be sexually pure, modest and emotionally whole teen girls. What are the challenges younger girls are facing today that ten years ago more likely would have been encountered during their teen or college years?

Walk it Out Stories: Lessons from a Cage Fight in the Minivan | Lea Ann Garfias

J.C. Penny’s isn’t a great place to start a fight with your husband, come to find out. When we realized our increasingly tense voices were garnering the side eye from more than one customer, we high-tailed it out of there. There was only one place to go: the minivan. It was a cage fight in the minivan. Don’t tell me you’ve never had one. Enclosed in the seemingly soundproof vehicle (in order to have a minivan cage fight, you must {Read More}

Walk it Out Stories: When God Says “Not Yet” | LaToya Edwards

It had been a long 2 years. Walking through divorce (again) and trying to heal from abuse was more than I ever bargained for. After all this time I was weary and battle worn. I received some amazing words of encouragement and lots of messages of hope and victory. So many people were praying for us. I just knew that this week was the appointed hour where God was going answer all my prayers and put an end to my {Read More}

Walk It Out Stories: The Life We Truly Crave | Elisa Pulliam

Has your life turned out how you expected or do you feel like you’ve been re-routed to places you never imagined? We were newlyweds busy plotting our course while God was about the business of “determining our steps” right into an unexpected job interview (Proverbs 16:9). Within a week of that divine appointment, my husband was hired, or should I say, we were hired. As is the case with boarding schools, it’s an all-hands-on-deck commitment.

Walk it Out Stories: Stepping Out to Do What I Promised Myself I Never Would | Janet Holm McHenry

There is a stirring, a restlessness, an unsettling feeling that builds up within me just before God leads me in a new direction. That was certainly true right before I had The Dream. Or rather, a literal nightmare. I was on a tour bus filled with reporters and dignitaries set out on a tour of a new housing area in Sacramento. The city fathers were impressed with how they had replaced a blighted area with beautiful, new homes. However, as {Read More}

Walk it Out Stories | Katherine Reay

I’m delighted to be a part of Tricia’s work with Walk It Out. She writes so many truths within her book. One resonated with me and that is what I’d like share here: You never know what God has in store. Simply trust him. In December 2008, I was severely injured. For a time, slowly moving from my bed to an armchair then back to bed was the most I did in a day. I could not define myself as {Read More}

Walk it Out Stories: My Journey to Mr. Wonderful | Arlene Pellicane

When I was in high school, I was blessed to have a lot of titles. Cheerleader. Honors Student. Student Body President. Youth Group Leader. But there was one title I was very displeased with. Dateless. I think I was the only one to graduate from high school without being asked out. No roller rink dates. No fast food jaunts. Nothing. But God had given me a promise. I went to a Christian school and one day after chapel, I was {Read More}

Walk it Out Stories: Serving Him Wholeheartedly | Trisha Goddard

At the young age of six years old, I was challenged to walk out my faith and go beyond the borders of my country to an ethnic group that did not have access to the truth of God’s Word. Now, I did not truly understand what serving Him wholeheartedly meant, but I did know that it was something that I wanted to do. In my early childhood, I heard stories of ethnic groups in Papua New Guinea in need of {Read More}
