Book Review: None Like Him by Jen Wilkin

*Please note this post contains affiliate links. Any purchase you may make helps to cover the costs of this site. Thank you! How big is God to you? Do you really, truly see Him as all-knowing? Can you wrap your brain around his omnipresence? If we’re going to be honest, I think a lot of us (myself included) put God in a box. Not necessarily purposefully. Our limited minds struggle to grasp the unlimitedness of God. When the … [Read more...]

Book Review: Audacious (with a Bonus Study Guide)

I was flat-out overwhelmed on Sunday by what God did at the end of our worship service. Our Youth will be participating in a DNOW (Discipleship Now) event next weekend. I’m part of the DNOW Prayer Team and we had written the names of our students on DNOW bracelets we had purchased. Our Pastor helped us to distribute them by inviting anyone who wanted to take a bracelet to come forward during our time of invitation. We had placed a popcorn … [Read more...]

Do you suffer from Obsessive Comparison Disorder?

*This post contains affiliate links. Your support is greatly appreciated! Turns out there’s a label for the funk I’ve been in lately. That feeling of never being good enough. Never doing enough. Failing to be better at so many, many things. As a women’s ministry leader I constantly analyze and compare myself and our women’s ministry events to those at other churches, to ones on Pinterest, and to that ideal made up in my head. As a … [Read more...]

An Old Fashioned Giveaway!

Please note: This post contains affiliate links. I’m a read-the-book-before-the-movie kind of girl and as it would be, that’s what happened with Old Fashioned. I picked up the book for my Kindle awhile back and immediately read it. I really wanted to see the movie in the theater with my husband, but by the time I tried to arrange a date the show times didn’t work with our schedule. So a couple of months later when the opportunity arose … [Read more...]

Movie Recommendation: Old Fashioned

I admit it. I am a sucker for a good romantic movie. Sleepless in Seattle, The Sound of Music, Gone with the Wind, Jerry Maguire, Dirty Dancing, An Affair to Remember... I have a strong feeling Old Fashioned is destined to become another classic love story that will stand the test of time. However Old Fashioned is not your typical love story. There’s the typical boy meets girl, but both have some baggage and hurt to work through. It’s a … [Read more...]

How to Love Your Neighbor (without being weird)

In the fall of 2013 God began to pepper me with verses about “loving your neighbor”. It was in my BSF Bible study. It popped up in a Christian fiction book I was reading. It seemed as if everywhere I turned, God was telling me to “love my neighbor”, but I didn’t know why. We were getting ready to move 8 hours back to North Carolina from Kentucky. And in my mind, I thought our new neighbors should be loving me! Surely someone would see our … [Read more...]

Messy Beautiful Ministry

I felt like a fraud. A big, fat fraud. God had recently promoted me from the MOPS Coordinator to the position of Women’s Ministry Director. I wanted the women in our church to see me as a woman of prayer, relentlessly pursuing God, seeking His will and direction for our events and activities. I was a hard worker and proud of it. Truth was I was barely holding it together. I was putting on a big smile each time I walked … [Read more...]
