Guys, it's for realsies truth time. I've been trudging through all the emotions lately.

Worship in Spirit and Truth

you ever had one of those gnawing convictions that you can't seem to explain to other people? That's been me and worship lately. My sister in law talks me through many of my spiritual struggles because I can trust her to do so objectively. And that's one of the reasons I love her. But she … Continue reading Worship in Spirit and Truth

Feeding Myself on God’s Word

I've been in a weird place with our transition to our new church. I've felt loved, and encouraged, but at the same time, there's a feeling kind of like a cute new pair of shoes; they look great, but they aren't broken in and they still feel a little weird. Like, when you buy a … Continue reading Feeding Myself on God’s Word

Humility and Obedience: My Experience with Christian Head Covering

I'll preface this post with a statement that it contains my personal convictions. A conviction is like an opinion, but with the added weight of Scriptural support and motivation toward heart change. As such, it is a matter of my personal relationship with God through Christ, and my best understanding of Scripture.

Introverted Parents with Extroverted Children

So I thought I would list them here for any number of pastors or PW's or PK's (pastors, pastor's … Continue reading Questions for Pastors and their families

Sex without Responsibility

Let's be clear right up front. New York's "Reproductive Health Act" is straight out of Hell itself. There is nothing worth celebration when it comes to the murder of babies. That's what abortion is; call it what you want- termination of pregnancy, reproductive rights, the right to choose- it's murder. Plain and simple. For starters, … Continue reading Sex without Responsibility

Toxic Humanity

Look out, here comes my soap box. Apparently masculinity is toxic. I know, baby H... I'm confused/ surprised too... I learned this from a razor company. So, I guess beards are right out too? Who knew? I thought they made and sold shaving implements that assist me with my morning ablutions (yes, I used to … Continue reading Toxic Humanity

Christianity in the Public Sphere

There has been a wave of controversy (ugh, I can't stand that word, and I know I'm the last to the party on this one) over Lauren Daigle's response in her Ellen interview regarding homosexuality as a sin. Now before I go further, this post is not about Lauren, it's about the Church as the … Continue reading Christianity in the Public Sphere

Female by Design

There is so much going on in our culture regarding sex and gender and identity and any combination of those subjects, that I can't speak to them all here. My primary goal in this post is to speak to the majority of women who are struggling with the typical daily struggles of life as a … Continue reading Female by Design
