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}

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}

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}

Four Ways to Impress Scripture on Your Children | Mary Hairston

I vividly remember a dark and lonely time right after college, and before I had any clue what God wanted to do with my life, when God’s Word first became what I lived on. I grew up reading Scripture and enjoying it, but I don’t think I truly relied on it before then. That year, and years after, I filled journals with notes on the precious thoughts of my God communicated through His Word. They were light in my darkness {Read More}

When You Feel Like An Outsider As a Mom

Years ago, John and I found ourselves trying out churches after a leadership change at a small country church we’d been attending for years. With a preschooler, a toddler, and a baby on the way I often spent more time out of service than in it. One church we were visiting was large, and they had a crying room to take my toddler. I was a young mom and very insecure in my role, and even now my stomach tenses {Read More}

Teaching Kids to Give Generously

Teaching My Children to Give Generously I never planned on that very ordinary spring day to provide a teaching moment, yet that’s exactly how it turned out. I had just loaded my children into the car after a doctor’s appointment and a man, wearing tattered clothes, approached in a wheelchair. He asked if we had any food to spare, and I shared what I had to give: a sack lunch prepared for a picnic and a bakery donut I’d bought {Read More}
