The Birthing Process

I can still vividly remember the experience of being pregnant with my son. I was young, single and un-saved and my situation was less than ideal but I was excited, nonetheless. At about six weeks in, however, the sickness started to set in  - terribly. I couldn't eat anything for the first three months. My …

The Power in Surrender

  I can do all things. I truly believe that. Give me a problem, I can solve it. Give me a challenge, I overcome it. Whatever you need, I can get it done, maybe not right away - but best believe I will find a way. And you will be impressed. I pride myself on that, …

A Grateful Heart

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” G.K. Chesterton As I sit here listening to Grateful by Kurt Carr and feeling the love of God flow through me, I'm reminded of one simple yet profound truth: gratitude brings happiness. In fact, it is my …

So God Told You He Is Your Husband?

(As seen on The Praying Woman. I wrote this specifically for women but I know that the reverse happens as well. It is important to note that I by no means meant to imply that as long as a man says you are his wife, then it is set in stone. Men have also been …

Seasons Change

I've been trying to understand where my fairly recent obsession with landscape photography came from. I grew up in the country in a small town right by the ocean. I spent my childhood playing in the bushes, making mud pies and climbing trees. Most of my mornings were spent by the ocean, with my grandmother, watching …

Fear of the Light

Some days I realize I am afraid of my own greatness. It may seem paradoxical- considering the path I am on- but it is true. Sometimes the thought that I can actually become everything that I set out to be is frightening. And I know that if I am not careful or honest with myself, …

He’s Coaching Me to Victory!

I think it was around this time last year that I was watching the Usain Bolt documentary on Netflix. He was running laps during a training session  with his coach but he kept getting a lot of things wrong and so the coach would stop him and correct him each time. I remember being amazed …

Single… And NOT Looking

No it doesn't mean I am closed off or bitter. Read on 🙂 My sister and I were having a conversation about me not dating. I turn everybody down. I don't give my number out, don't accept any and I pretty much stay indoors as best as I can. So she asked me why (as …

Pressure Builds Diamonds: Behind the Name – Identity and Purpose

I consider myself "borderline" feminist. (I believe in gender roles and the biblical order of Christ - Husband - Wife - Children, so that probably disqualifies me as a full fledged feminist.) I love women. I feel called to women... to love, to support and minister to them. I believe in sisterhood, equality, girl power …
