WHERE WE'VE BEEN

I don’t know if you have noticed, but the world is in a major upheaval right now. Businesses have closed. Travel plans…cancelled, if not banned by the government. Schools are shutdown, some for the remainder of the school year. Cities are on lockdown. People are fighting over toilet paper. Surgeries? Cancelled. Life is, well, unsteady […]

I have said this many, many times in the past. I have written viral blog posts about it, shared videos about it and even taught about it in small group classes before. Yet, I still find myself needing to say it again: Religion is killing the Church. Legalism is butchering the Gospel.“Rules” are rendering the […]

Religion is Killing the Gospel by Courtney Kirkland

Where are all of the christians in the public school? Should Christian parents send their children to public schools? These are big questions and big topics amongst believers as we get back into the swing of the school year. I heard someone say not too long ago that children who are in the public school […]

Church Hurt…almost everyone who has ever attended church on Sunday mornings has experienced it. Sadly, I received an email a few days ago that broke my heart. It wasn’t the first of its kind and I’m sure it won’t be the last. It was from a sweet soul who, like many, have fallen victim to […]

A few days ago, I posted something on Instagram that received a lot of really honest feedback from my followers. For those who aren’t following the government shutdown, we are right in the middle of it. We moved to California last July and with that transition came a lot of changes for our family. Changes […]

It’s been quiet around here. 2018 has, so far, brought a whirlwind of changes for our family. We bid farewell to North Carolina and made the very long 3,000 mile drive cross country to California. After a couple of nonstop weeks, we finally got unpacked, settled down, and are falling into a new rhythm. I’m […]

I cannot pinpoint the exact moment or the time that it happened, but somewhere in the last six months, my life has shifted. Maybe it’s a result of having three kids instead of two… Maybe it’s the result of finally reaching the point of physical, spiritual and emotional exhaustion… Maybe it’s preparing to move across […]

In the last month and a half or so, the Lord has convicted my heart about something that I can’t run from anymore. It started out as something that I just kind of shrugged my shoulders at. Something that, honestly, I didn’t think twice about. “Everyone else is doing it…” I thought. “Why should it […]

I heard someone say one time-I think it might have been Beth Moore-that if the devil can’t make you bad, he will make you busy. I can’t think of any other time in our culture that that statement has been more true. I can personally attest to the fact that, though I do not always […]

"And at the end of the day, when I stand before God at those pearly gates, I know that I will answer for the mistakes that I have made (and heaven knows there’s been a lot of them). I know that I will have to give an account of all the wrong doing in my life."

"If I act too good to engage with the least of these, then how much like Jesus am I really?"

"Not all of our lives are meant to look identical. What looks right for you doesn’t have to look right for me. While I take my role within our home very seriously and believe it to be the most important thing I will ever do, I don’t find my fulfillment there. And that is okay."

"It wasn’t until I started feeling the conviction of my lack of prayer life, that I realized something…If I’m not praying intentionally over my husband, my marriage, my children and our lives, then who is? That’s what has inspired me to start a prayer binder..."
