Doing Hard Things

Happy Tuesday, friends! Let's talk about doing hard things. ​ We swim in a culture that proclaims "good things are hard," and that anything worth doing or achieving is usually difficult. I have worked for things that required immense sacrifice, discipline, and...

In Whose Orbit?

A few years ago, my good friend Bridget and I were having a conversation about sin, and she said something that has stayed with me since: "All sin is simply a result of us grasping at a good thing that we don't trust God wants to give us freely." Oof. ​ I have seen...

Be a Good Loser

Last week on the podcast, I shared my word of the year for 2024: fun. As usual, this word has many "satellite" words that accompany it, including childlike, trust, freedom, joy, play, etc. In my prayer, I've come to see that there are countless ways this word can...

In: Humiliation

Let's talk about everyone's favorite subject: humility. ​ To be totally candid, I have an ideal vision of humility, and it looks like this: ​ [Zoom in on an open floor office plan. Jane and her colleagues are working at their desks, diligently. A partner from the firm...

New Year, Same God

Happy New Year! 2024 – can you believe it? Although not much has changed in the past two days, January 1 always reminds me that God "makes all things new," and that He is "doing a new thing." Because it's the truth! He's always doing something new, something beautiful...

Merry Christmas my beloved friends!! I hope you are enjoying time with those you love and who love you. This little pocket of time between Christmas and New Year's is one of my very favorites because these days feel like "free days!" Few companies are open, email...

He Is Doing a New Thing

How does God want to surprise you this Christmas? ​ When I think of Christmas, I think of traditions. For my family, these include reading Twas Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve, hosting a caroling party, attending Christmas Eve mass, and having to pause on...

The Apostle of Hope

If you've been here for any length of time, you're probably quite aware that I am a *big* St. Jude fan. St. Jude, the apostle and friend of Jesus, is often forgotten about because his name is so similar to that of the traitor (Judas Iscariot). However, those who ask...

The Monster Under the Bed

When I was a little kid, I was terrified of monsters. I'm sure many of you were, too. Every night, I would check under my bed and in my closet for anything out of the ordinary, and then I would turn off my lights and sprint to my bed before anything spooky could grab...

The Fear of Suffering

One of my favorite things about being Christian is that we are constantly being invited to grow. Actually, sometimes I find this very annoying because every time I think I'm "good," the Lord reveals a new place for me to let Him work. ​ Over the past year, I've...

Should women work?

I get asked all the time about my thoughts on whether women should be in the workplace or at home...
