Over the years, God has been slowly but surely cracking away at the walls and stoniness of my heart and easing me into the fact that I am imperfect and a sinner. This seems so obvious, but for me, it has really been a truth that I have struggled to […]
Were All In This Together I recently came across this YouTube video and was so convicted; it is a poignant reminder of “the great imbalances” that exist in our world today. After I saw it, I was on the phone with my sister, Angie, and was sharing how I felt […]
Sometimes I can’t trust my head, other times I can’t trust my heart, and I usually can’t trust my emotions. I’m finding that the only fool-proof thing I can trust is the Lord (and his word) because he alone does not waver, does not change in the face of adversity […]
Here’s a quick question: what good can come from suffering? As you may or may not have read in a previous blog of mine, I’m reading Peter Kreeft’s “Making Sense of Suffering” and I want to share a beautiful idea that I came across in it. Know that I’m not […]
Today, Amanda and Danielle ended up sitting around the breakfast table for hours sharing different things God’s been revealing to them—turns out, God had a lot to say to each one of them through the other. Here’s a peek into their conversation: Danielle: So I’ve been praying lately about the […]

So, recently, I’ve been leafing through another book, “I Believe in Love.” Now, wait a minute before you judge it. If I didn’t have it sitting right in front of me or hadn’t started reading it, I imagine that I would assume it was some sort of cheesy self-help book […]
I’ve recently been working my way through “Making Sense of Suffering”– an absolute must-read by Peter Kreeft. One of the ideas that he touches on is the necessity of humility in approaching the world and our Lord. While discussing wisdom, Kreeft brings up this almost comic example from Socrates’ life. […]
God is so funny–he really makes me laugh. About two weeks ago I was feeling a little prick of my conscience telling me to be more disciplined with my time and to wake up for my holy hour at the beginning of each day. I was fitting in a holy […]
