Walk it Out Stories: Afraid to Surrender | Katie Orr

We spent days painting it and (in our teenage minds) it was a masterpiece. Using a 1980s overhead projector and a transparency picture of clip-art Jesus, a few friends of mine and I traced and painted a floor-to-ceiling image of Christ for the youth group room. Including one arm stretched forward, He stood with a finger pointing right at the viewer. At the bottom of the mural was the caption, “Count the Cost,” serving as the foundation for the artist’s {Read More}

Walk It Out Stories: Live Like You Believe You Are Radically Loved | Jeannie Blackmer

As a recovering performance-oriented, people pleasing, recognition-seeking devotee, I’m learning to live knowing, without a doubt, I am radically loved. What does that mean? For me, it means: I’m learning to NOT base my identity on what I do, but ONLY on What God says about me.   It means living radically different than I have in the past. I’ve spent most of my life focused on doing. As a young girl, I was the good girl. I got good grades. {Read More}

Walk it Out Stories: Why My Teenage Abortion Made Me Want to Live for the Fame of God’s Name | Lisa Lloyd

“Who is a God like Thee? Who pardons iniquity and passes over the rebellious acts of the remnant of His possession. He does not retain His anger forever because He delights in unchanging love” Micah 7:18 (NAS). I became a Christian when I was six years old. But as a teenager, I replaced the guiding voice of the Holy Spirit with the voice of my peers, especially teen boys. And like too many fifteen-year-old girls entranced by the desire to {Read More}

Walk it Out Stories: 100% Sold Out | Robin Lee Hatcher

Last month, I had the blessing of reading Tricia Goyer’s new book, Walk It Out. From the blurb: When women stop focusing on their own dreams and purposes, and instead focus on God’s dreams and purposes, everything changes.” Friends, may I just say, add this book to your reading list at once. It is a powerful and personal book that will challenge you (as it did me) to walk out your faith according to biblical principles. It’s been a long {Read More}

Walk it Out Stories: Hey There Lonely Girl | Kathy Schwanke

Standing in the middle school lunch line, my eyes were lingering on the pretty girl ahead of me. In addition to the long lashes framing her clear green eyes, and the blonde hair perfectly framing her smooth skin, I noticed how at ease she was with herself – a quality unfamiliar to me, and I envied her. I envied her looks, her friendships, and her freedom. I was more ultra aware of the large pimple protruding from my cheek, and {Read More}

Walk it Out Stories: Our Provider | Pam Farrel

This year marks my 50th year of walking it out. I penned a bible study, Discovering Hope in the Psalms and when I hit these verses, all the moments of God’s faithful love and provision seemed to replay like a favorite TV rerun in my mind: The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand. I was young and now {Read More}

Walk It Out Stories: Finding Purpose One Step at a Time | Kristi Clover

Following God’s will. Finding your purpose. Discovering your calling. Those were all the things I heard through the years that seemed to plague me more than inspire me. There have been so many sermons given and books written on this subject of vocation. My heart’s desire was to discover what God had for me. I wanted to live my life fully for Him. Yet, despite my efforts to find answers, I never really felt like I could figure out what {Read More}
