Finding My Gift :: The Journey to Love

Since I can remember, I have always been an old soul. I can recall when I was in my late teen years, being drawn to the Old Testament and, most specifically, to Jeremiah and Isaiah. I loved how they interpreted and shared the Lord's voice over Israel. However, I do recall thinking, "Man, the prophets are so truthful and tell it like it is...

No One Said It Would Be Easy: My One Word

It’s not easy choosing to follow the Lord. If they told you it would be, they lied.   It’ll break your heart. He’ll break your heart. They’ll break your heart. You’ll find yourself pleading with the God of the Universe for just one, small, crumb from His table…   It’s not easy. It’s devastating, at times. Following Jesus leaves you bare, exposed, and open.   But, it’s also romantic--the Creator of all things, holding each atom together in perfect harmony, is deeply, passionately, fervently in love with you.   It’s poetic--a man, climbing upon a cross to die for his friends. Then offering them life eternal.   It’s wild--life...

Let’s…Let’s Stay Together…

[dropcaps type='circle' color='' background_color='' border_color='']F[/dropcaps]iguring things out on your own. Keeping your problems, victories, fears, hopes and dreams to yourself. Keeping it all together and powering through with all you have. Proving to yourself you are strong enough on your own.   Leaning on others for support, wisdom, and encouragement. Letting people see who you are, your deepest fears, insecurities, hopes, and dreams. Being exposed in and honest about faults, failures and frailties. Looking to be accepted and supported and not judged and abandoned.   Which of these scares you the most?   In my life I have always leaned towards being an "open book." I desire...

Rooted in Our Purposes

I have been so honored to be a part of Prism Women and ministries like it. It’s refreshing and more exciting to see ministries popping up that encourage women, daughters, mothers, and grandmothers to keep pursuing their God-given dreams. It excites me to no end to be alive during such a time where the female population is continually being seen as equals to men, and the world and church are recognizing the need and influence of women in society.   Something I have struggled with is the space between being empowered to follow my heart and the practical steps to take...

For the Love of Beauty

Shepherd. Striving to draw out beauty, strength, and freedom in all people through truth and love. Creative. Finding unique ways to delight the eyes, ears, minds, and souls of people, all with the expectation of Jesus Christ shining through even brighter.   I have always drawn an eclectic crowd, if you will. Since I was young I always loved, appreciated and connected with different personalities, ages, and walks of life. I never quite fit into one single group. I had several different "friend groups" and just coasted around enjoying all of them in different ways.   Have you ever thought, where do I fit...

We Heal Because He First Heals Us

Twenty years ago, when I was wild with wonder about the Lord’s purposes for my life, I sipped café mochas with my college classmates and contemplated the big deals of life: calling, purpose, pain. I asked how if our testimonies had been sullied—occupied with abuse and loss and depression, as mine was—how were we of any value to God’s people?   I don’t remember the name of the young man sitting across from me, but I remember his strawberry blond hair. His eyebrows were thick and almost translucent; they lit up his face. He looked at me and deliberated aloud about the...
