For years, I struggled to have a consistent “quiet” time. Since college, the Lord has worked in my heart in regards to this. He used trial to birth a deep love for his Word in me. God taught me his Word is a necessary part of my day, not just something to do if I… Continue reading Seeking the Lord When It’s Not Quiet- The Good When Our Kids See Us Read God’s Word
This was originally published on Lifeway Girls (with a few edits. For example, my boys are no longer 4 and 2 like they were when I originally wrote this!) Currently, I’m an all boy mom (ages 6 and 4). There are fifteen Hot Wheels in my purse to prove it! There’s a little girl in… Continue reading 8 Encouragements for Moms of Teen Girls
I'm one of those people that has at least 10 tabs open on my internet at any given moment. My husband makes fun of me for this, but it's basically a visual representation of how my brain feels. One particular night, my brain had a million tabs open. The tabs of school, parenting, adoption, and… Continue reading Having Perfect Peace in a World of Pandemics & Brokenness
What a joy Tuesday Truth has been! I pray this has challenged and encouraged you to trade in this world's lies for the Truth of God's Word. Months ago, the Lord birthed this idea in my heart because I of the belief and celebration of ideas that sounded good on the surface, but weren't biblical.… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- If It’s Labeled as “Christian,” Does It Mean It Always Is?
The internet is wonderful for many reasons, and one of them is how it's connected me with writer friends across the country. Chelsea has been an encouragement and help to me in my own writing, and I love how she uses her words to point people to Christ. I'm so thankful for this article she… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Should I Cut “Toxic” People out of My Life?
Through this Tuesday Truth series, I wanted to feature the writing of other ladies who love God's Word. A few week's ago, the Lord laid it on my heart to give a voice to some women in my life who are a season or so ahead of me. These real-life relationships are so valuable, and… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Truth from God’s Word Moms Need to Hear (from my own personal “Mentor Moms”), Part 2
The internet can be a helpful tool, can’t it? In seconds, we can find and save recipes, connect with friends across the world, and have all our odd questions answered by Google. Part of the internet we engage with most is social media. Though I enjoy it, one of its downfalls is the temptation to… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Truth from God’s Word Moms Need to Hear (from my own personal “Mentor Moms”), Part 1
As many know, this blog was birthed from the trial of Mom's battle with brain cancer and her passing. That trial produced fruit in my life for God’s glory, for which I’m grateful. To say I never wrestled, though, would be a lie. There’s a false gospel (typically called the prosperity gospel) that preaches if… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Will God Answer All My Prayers (As I Want Him To)?
One thing that led me to begin Tuesday Truth was how often I saw Christians post, share, etc. phrases/ideas that aren't biblical. This burdened me so badly. Many of these phrases/ideas center on our identities, and society often encourages us to "find ourselves." Today, Christi gives discusses identities with a Scripture-lens. By: Christi Beem When… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Is My Identity Found Inside Myself?
Let me start with this- I LOVE CHURCH CAMP! It's one of my favorite weeks of summer (both when I was a student and now as an adult). The Lord used camp in my life in huge ways, and I’m forever grateful. I joke with my husband that I married him (a youth pastor), just… Continue reading To the Student Missing Camp This Summer…
