The Church Project, Part II

We all have different experiences with Church. The Church Project is a way to look at some of those experiences to consider one another within the Church and think more deeply about our own experiences. Let’s welcome Anita as she tells parts of her story growing up in the church and working in a variety […]

The Church Project, Part I

We all approach Church with our own ideas and life experiences. Learning from one another can help us become better equipped to love and encourage one another in God’s truth. As we spend a few weeks exploring our role within the Church, I started a project asking people about their experiences. People will answer the […]

How I Went Back To Church, Part II

Finding your way back to church can be a road you never intended to be on. I sure didn’t. This is the second part in my journey back (you can see the first part here). I never lost Jesus, but something in me missed what I knew the church could be. So we stepped out […]

How I Went Back To Church, Part I

It wasn’t that long ago that I was spiritually homeless. I had my faith, held it tight, or loose depending on the day. But it never left. I never let it go. Church was a different story. I never meant to leave. Church just moved further and further down the list of things I wanted […]

Why Imperfect is Enough

I lay there in my bed, hands reflexively resting on my belly. The days of feeling little baby kicks are long gone, but some of the roundness remains. I thought of what my body was, what it is. And in that moment I did something radical. Want to know what I did? I am so […]

4 Books I’m Reading In February

I love how winter and books go together. The long slow days of January left me with a full list. I was so excited for February books! And somehow the 3 less days threw me off. I still read, but not quite as diligently. Have you had that happen? Do you read more during certain […]

7 Things I’m Learning (and Loving) This Winter

The cold winter leaves a lot of time for introspection so it’s the perfect time to link up with Emily in her seasonal What I’ve Learned Series. I Learned A Lot This sounds silly, but I’ve taken some time to reflect. We often forget about the things we learn. We just accept them as part […]

Finding Joy in a Simple Calling

The idea of a 4 word calling can feel anything but simple. Sometimes it seems easier to accept the idea of big, grand plans and purpose than to walk out your anything for God in small steps. Big feels like a celebration; small feels, well, small. Embracing the idea of a big calling feels like […]

What To Do When You’re Stuck Between Your Calling and Real Life

It’s easy to feel stuck in real life, even as your mind wanders to big callings. The more we whittle down the simplicity of what God calls us to, the easier it is to walk it out. As I sit here writing, there is a table full of clutter in front of me, kids playing […]

Can My Calling Really Be That Simple?

Ok, I know the other day when I wrote about your calling I said, the end. But the truth is it just doesn’t always seem that easy, does it? Four words made it sound so simple, but here we are, everyday, struggling to understand what it means. I get it. So what do we do? […]
