When Church Hurts

By: Kelly Arena “I reported you to Pastor Smith.” The voice over the phone was cold and sharp. My heart pounded and cheeks warmed. With a lump in my throat I continued the conversation as maturely and kindly as possible. As the conversation unnecessarily dragged on, I prayed; when I hung up the phone, I […]

Convicted or Condemned?

By: Amy Hornbuckle Condemnation is an act of the enemy. A force that knows our human frailty and how our sins affect our walk with the Lord. For me, it often reveals itself in the form of shame – a powerful and deadly weapon. It has a certain tenacity within my heart and warps my […]

Quiet Seasons

Seasons change. Sometimes abruptly, without warning and sometimes quietly, without notice. In whatever season you’re in, know that he IS working, and everything He does is for your good as He prunes and nurtures you to look more and more like Him.

Relief from Perfection

By Malia Lee In the 6th grade, I was a finalist in our school spelling bee. After making it past the preliminary rounds, my principal gave the top five finalists a book of words which we would have to spell in front of the entire school in two weeks. I stayed up past my bedtime, […]

Wholehearted Trust

By: Amy Hornbuckle I’ve been contemplating the definition of trust in multiple areas of my life. What does it look like? How do I recognize it? Is it more than a mere belief in something? It is simply expressed as hope? On many occasions, I have defined trust as an outward confidence- a form of […]

Quiet Together

By: Sarah Abreu Jesus said when we become one, when we act in one accord, in one Spirit; the world will see that Jesus is the light of the world. – John 17:23 Today, Christianity is divided, sometimes for very good reasons, but too often by unnecessary disagreements based on preferences and opinions and fanned […]

Guardian of our Hearts

By: Abby Watson “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”  Ah, the favorite verse of every American youth pastor teaching a series on dating. “Guard your heart,” has become somewhat of a caricature in Christian culture.

Wholehearted Worship

By: Christi Grimm The sweet touch of her hand woke me gently.  I rolled over, opening my eyes to a precious three-year-old.  “Mommy, I had an accident in my bed.”  It was 7:30am Monday morning.  The weekend had been a busy one, full of activities and fun and I was looking forward to slowly starting […]

Faithful God; Forgetful Me

By: Kate Van Der Hoeven It’s 7:45 am. I’m deeply focused on my Bible study. I’m impressed with what I’m learning. Had those verses always been there? I jot down a page full of notes, get up, and move on with the day. By noon, I’ve been at work for a few hours. It’s been […]
