How to Be Brave.

Courage is the word on the tongue of God, almost like he is whispering it in our ears and suddenly we find ourselves emboldened with our hearts pounding and our tongues tied doing something we never thought we could do. I used to think courage had a lot more to do with big physical actions,...

Confession of a Girl That’s Scared of Intimacy.

I cried myself to sleep last night. Not a cute little “it’s been a rough day” types of cries… but the type where I moaned aloud that I didn’t want the sun to come up… because honestly, I didn’t want to face another day. I cried because I’m lonely. I’m surrounded by a sea of...

The Lie We All Believe

  He walked her to the bar and she did the talking. He was about 55, white, slightly overweight and even from a distance I could tell he was unsure of himself. She appeared the opposite, young, Thai, beautiful, confident and doting on the older man, wiping his face with a cloth to catch the...

Confessions of a Shameful Daughter.

Yesterday was a the typical mundane Tuesday. I made a million lattes and made small talk with any passerby of my quaint little espresso bar. I woke up well-rested and was ready to face the day. A few hours into my shift, my coworker knocked over a gallon of milk and my instant response was...

Somehow “I’m sorry,” doesn’t seem to cut it.

  Greetings from Kampala, Uganda, a country still recovering from when the Lord’s Resistance Army lead by Joseph Kony ripped through the countryside abducting children to be pawns in a senseless war against humanity.

What Needs To Be Said About Sex.

If we’re honest… Sex is awkward to talk about. It’s avoided at all costs in the Church and among people in general. But let’s be real… It needs to be talked about.

How a Million Moments Make a Life.

Lately I have been finding myself waiting for that big moment. You know when you are so overwhelmed by God’s presence that something bubbles out of you, whether it be tears or laughter.

Confession of a Christian Who Still Struggles.

Growing up, I was in church anytime the doors were opened. I went on all the mission trips, camps, and retreats… attended bible studies, had the best of friends, and had multiple mentors. My life was beautiful. I said “the prayer” when I was 8 and proceeded to be baptized. I laid wide eyed at...

I Have a Dream- A Tribute to MLK

Eighty-five years ago today, a child was born that would forever change the way America saw equality. Martin Luther King Jr. was born into a culture where the color one’s skin held more weight than the merit of one’s character. Not satisfied with the status-quo, he sought to change it.
