Adoption and the Gospel

Have you ever poured your heart and soul out into a relationship and had it gone unappreciated? Or have you ever worked diligently to love someone well only to have them flat out reject you? Maybe that person even went a step further and betrayed you. Betrayal feels like someone has taken your heart and…

Why Defining Homosexuality as Sin is Important

This week, there was a huge wave of backlash after Lauren Daigle came out in an interview and said she “can’t say one way or another” if Homosexuality is sin and that she doesn’t know because she knows and loves many people who identify as homosexual. So the Christian community criticized her statements, saying that…

What Pro-Choice Women Don’t Understand About Their Own Biology

Women get pregnant, and men don’t. Sounds like a pretty simple truth right? You could just stop reading here, but I’m guessing you want a little more explanation. Women are made differently than men. God designed us to be life creators and life givers. This is a privilege, and a gift. And I say gift…

A Review of the Social Justice Statement

  Last week, a statement on social justice and the gospel was released by prominent Christian Leaders including John Macarthur, Voddie Baucham, and Phil Johnson. The statement holds standard biblical truths such as the unique roles of men and women, and heterosexual marriage. I like what it has to say about justice, salvation, Heresy, and…

A postmodern rant

You have to replace the gospel with something. Idol worship, self-worship, humanity worship, ideology worship, feelings worship…you name it. You are going to worship something. Now, let me go ahead and make the bold claim. There is only one right kind of worship: the worship of God. Where do I get this from? The Bible….

Yeah, but why would I submit?

I just want you to pause and think for a minute about how much you love control. Think about how anxious you are when you don’t have control over certain situations in your life. Have you ever been frustrated with someone you love because they didn’t do what you asked? Or you couldn’t control their circumstances…

Don’t Bow Down to Political Parties

I live in the mountains of North Georgia. The only way to get to my apartment is traversing many back roads, filled with fields of cows and abandoned farm houses. Astonishingly enough, even there, you will find Trump/Pence signs posted in front yards. The same was true when my parents and I made a road…

Why I don’t wear makeup

*First of all I would just like to say that I don’t think wearing makeup is wrong in any shape form or fashion! This article is about the intent of our hearts. In fact, wearing makeup is meant to be fun! This article is simply about my personal commitment not to (normally) wear make up….

Ladies, Be a Tree

Ok so let’s be real. When it comes to liking boys, Christian girls typically handle it like any other girl. And while yes, we are all women and this a common human experience blah blah blah, we should handle this in a radically different way. We should handle our emotions in a radically different way because we…

Grace Ain’t Cheap

So I just finished reading through and meditating on the Psalms and Proverbs. It was awesome. It was so convicting and I learned and am still learning so much. I began to pray and ask the Lord what He would have me read next. I just finished a long in depth study of Galatians so…

How God Shattered My Dreams

I had the perfect plan. After I graduated high school I was going to go overseas to be a missionary. Nothing in me wanted to go to college. Why would I waste my time with that when I could be doing such “greater” things? And like every other Christian 18 year old girl, my plan…

Set Your Heart

I don’t like to think of myself as a worrisome or fretful person. In fact I take too much pride in my easy going, nonchalant nature. But the truth is, I do worry, and when the simple things that I deem important don’t go my way, I get frustrated. This is very humbling to admit….
