If Love is in the Air

I realize that Valentine’s Day is over, but that doesn’t mean our feelings of loneliness are gone. If you’re single, you may be especially depressed this time of year. The good news is that even if you’re still single, you’re not alone. In fact, you’re loved immeasurably by Jesus Christ. This is a poem to celebrate that!

The 3 Greatest Fears of Singles

Singleness is a reality for many of us. But even though singleness is becoming more normal for young adults, that doesn’t make it much easier. I bet you can relate to at least one of the three fears singles have...

The Only Way to Conquer Your Idols

I know how much you want to destroy your idols, and I know how much you want to keep them. I know how impossible it feels not to worship them. I may set goals, have high ambitions, and desire to change. But I still feel like I’ll always be ruled by my idols. So how do I stop? How do we stop?

The Truth about Our Smartphone Addiction

I stared at the group of college students across the cafeteria as they ate dinner together. At the full table, I couldn't help but observe how many eyes were glued to phone screens. The scene was saddening but not unusual in our society. When did eating a meal together stop revolving around rich laughter, deep conversation, and friendly encouragement?

Stuck

Here I am once again In the middle of my sin.   Why can’t I stay away From this dark and dismal place?   I can’t see any light Coming from his path of lies.   Only I am to blame For returning to this place.   I don’t know why I ran Back into... Continue Reading →

Hello, Change: How We Can Welcome Change with Open Arms

In reality, it doesn’t matter what major I pick. It doesn’t matter whether I take 19 credits or 12 credits. It doesn’t matter whether I have 20 friends or 5 friends. It simply matters that I seek Christ. Above a college degree. Above a well-paying job. Above a lot of blog followers. Above a book contract. Above a certain number of friends.

Getting Rid of Our Magic Wand Mentality

I just wish God would make my struggles disappear. I know He could do it if He wanted to because He can do absolutely anything (Luke 1:37). But that doesn’t mean He will. His plan is so much greater than that.

The Real Reason I Hate New Year’s Resolutions

There are so many things I need to do that I’m not doing. I need to do more, try harder, be better…but I’m not. If I set New Year’s resolutions for 2019, I’ll set myself up to fail. I can’t and won’t live up to my standards—or even God’s standards. As soon as I look away from my list of resolutions—or maybe even while I’m still writing them—I’ll fail.

Merry Christmas!

Today is such an exciting day because it is the day when Christ was born over 2,000 years ago. God sent Him to the earth to be born, live a sinless life, die on the cross, and rise again to pay for all our sins. When we choose to accept His offer of salvation by trusting in His death, resurrection, and complete payment for our sins, we belong to Him.

If You’ve Lost Your Christmas Spirit

It’s not sinful for you to feel un-Christmassy. It’s okay if you believe you’ve lost your Christmas spirit. You can’t force yourself to feel a certain way, but you can force yourself to focus on the truth about Christmas. And if you’ve lost your Christmas spirit, maybe you’ve been looking for it in the wrong place

The 3 Greatest Fears about Christmas

It really doesn’t make sense that we worry about Christmas. After all, the angel told Joseph, Mary, and the shepherds not to be afraid (Matthew 1:20; Luke 1:30, Luke 2:10). Christmas only becomes fear-full when we begin to focus on ourselves and what we can get out of it. Can you relate to any of the 3 greatest fears we have about Christmas?

Why I’m Glad I’m Not Cinderella

When will someone ask me? Will a guy ever be brave enough? I couldn’t help but wonder when a guy would even bother to notice me. Would I live the rest of my life without male attention? To be honest, I have never had a boyfriend or even been on a date.

3 Things I’m Not Thankful for This Thanksgiving

Usually, Thanksgiving is the time of year when we express what we're thankful for. But, for this post, I decided to be different and discuss a few things I'm not thankful for. Sound depressing? It is...and it isn't!

You Are (Not) Always Going to Feel this Way

Feeling overwhelmed doesn’t end when you graduate from high school or college. It doesn’t end when you find a career. It doesn’t end when you get married or have kids. And it doesn’t end when you settle down and retire...but as Christians, we can rely on the fact that we will be free from stress in heaven.
