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…
As parents, we're the primary disciplers of our children, and I believe part of that is modeling for them what it looks like to serve Christ and teaching them to do the same. We have the sweetest memories with our boys from bringing them along in the ministry with us (like them learning to ice… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Are Moms of Littles Exempt from Serving Christ?
I have such a heart for teen girls. They face many unique challenges, especially growing up in this social media age. I wanted a Tuesday Truth post specifically for them, and immediately thought of Carly to share. Carly is a college student at our church, so unlike me, she's lived through middle & high school… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- The Lie of Comparison
July will mark 9 years at our church where my husband serves as the student pastor. Over 9 years, this church has become family. One thing that’s become so beautiful to me about our congregation is the differences within it. 9 years ago, there were very few “young married” couples at our church. I longed… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Can We Still be Friends, Even If We’re Different?
Today’s Tuesday Truth post is a little different. Instead of diving into a specific topic, I'm sharing some Scripture I run to in spiritual battles. Though Christ has forgiven us, we fight an ongoing battle with our flesh (aka, sinful nature). We also battle lies from Satan. The best thing to do is arm ourselves… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Scripture for the Battle.
These days, self-care is a widely encouraged concept. It sounds nice, so we Christians often encourage it. Exercise, long baths, and vacations are suggested as ways to take care of ourselves. While these aren't wrong in and of themselves, we need to be aware of the society's messages in regards to self-care. First, it seems… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Will Self-Care Really Fix Us?
I love Pinterest - the recipes, birthday ideas, and classroom resources. However, I also must be wise and careful while I pin. The fun ideas are great, but they can also be a source of ungodly discontentment in my heart. This discontentment can lead to many other sin issues, with one of them being not… Continue reading Tuesday Truth- Does Hospitality Have to be Pinterest-Perfect?
