What Disappointment Taught Me About Dreaming Big

I felt a twinge of jealousy crawling up my spine as I stared at the words on my computer screen. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. A friend of mine had just received her very first book contract. Why hadn’t I received a book contract? I just couldn’t figure out what I was missing. Was I not doing enough? Was it simply not the right time for me to be a published author? Would it ever be the right time? How many articles and blog posts did I have to write until it was the right time? And then I began to realize the truth of the matter.

Today I Worshipped Eight Idols

Today I worshiped eight idols. No, I’m not exaggerating. I worshiped (at least) eight different idols in less than twenty-four hours...

You Don’t Have To Be Superman To Be Courageous

Courage is more common than we think. Every single day, we are faced with opportunities to be strong and courageous…or to fearfully back down. I often choose to fearfully back down. I could try to complicate the reasons why I do this, or I could admit that I’m simply terrified and unwilling to trust my Savior...

One Thing to Remember During Spiritual Dryness

Church…blah, blah, blah. Bible study…blah, blah, blah. Prayer…blah, blah, blah. Worship…blah, blah, blah. Quiet time…blah, blah, blah. Do you ever feel like you’re living a blah spiritual life? I definitely do. I’ve been a Christian since I was a little girl, so I’ve learned how I should act and what I should do as a Christian. But sometimes I feel tired of doing the "right" things...

The Greatest Fear of Writers

I stared at the blank screen as I pondered ideas for a new article. I could write about time management, I thought. Or maybe handling stress? Nah, I don’t feel like it… I was experiencing a bad case of writer’s block, but that wasn’t what was really bothering me. Though writer’s block can cause plenty of frustration and uneasiness, that is probably not the biggest fear that we face as writers. I include it in the list of lesser fears, as well as these...

How to Handle Distractions During Devotions

Boom, boom! Squeak, squeak! Clang, clang! The noise from downstairs filled my bedroom as I sat down to start my devotions. Though I got back up to shut my door, it didn’t make my room much quieter...

Dear Disney, Dreams Don’t Always Come True

I’ve been wrestling with questions about my future lately (which is common for me). What if I should change my major? How many years should it take to finish college? Where will I work after college ends? What if I don’t get the career I want? How long will it take for me to get married and have kids? Of course, I have my life figured out in my head...

Why Jesus is More Than the Light at the End of the Tunnel

Life is hard. I don’t have to tell you twice. You might feel the weight of that sentence every single day. You’ve likely felt the pain of a breakup, job loss, move, loss of a loved one, abuse, difficult friendship, betrayal, financial insecurity, injury or sickness, or difficult transition. You’ve likely felt lonely, depressed, frustrated, angry, irritated, worried, and scared at some point in your life. Perhaps you feel those things every single day, and maybe you can’t recall the last time you were truly happy...
