How do you Find Rest in the Midst of Chaos?

A car crash. A head injury. A near broken toe. A long to-do list. An unexpected blessing. A teaching on worship. What do these all have in common? Well, they were all a part of a journey that God took me on to find where true rest lay. In the midst of the chaos, I […]

Why is it so Difficult to Trust God?

Why does it always seem so difficult to trust God? Recently, I was studying and teaching the book of Samuel.  In this book, there is a strong contrast between the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David.  In the heart of the book, we discover what separates these two individuals:  that David is a […]

Would Jesus Listen To Secular Music?

I love music. I always have. I believe it is inspired by a creator, who in turn gave us the ability to create. But just like anything, music has a balance, a good side and a bad side. Growing up, I was confused about what the “bad side” was and I lived in fear of […]

Is it Possible to Dance Without Comparison?

Picture a little girl tugging on her mother’s shirt because she didn’t want to be late for her first day of dance class. The eager, excited, nervous little one was ready to dance. She was ready to become a star! She was already a star; after all, she had danced around in front of her […]

What Have You Placed Your Hope In?

What do I do with my life now?

We have all been in that place… “NOW WHAT?” “What direction do I go?” “What am I supposed to follow?” I was 19 and at the end of my rope with God and with myself. I felt empty, lost and alone. I was stuck in the place of “now what?”, searching for meaning for my […]

How God Spoke to me Through Push-ups

All I had ever wanted growing up was just to be loved for who I was not for what I had done, was doing, or for anything that I was ever going to do. Instead, I only felt I received attention for the things I did. I felt like I had to earn love, like […]

What are you willing to give up for Jesus?

You know that feeling you get when you are totally out of your element – your palms get sweaty and it seems like the room you’re in is shrinking?  That’s how I felt when I found myself sleeping on the ground next to 60 high schoolers in a nation that is totally different from my […]

Please Don’t Wait for Marriage

It has been an undefined expectation in my head that marriage would fulfill or complete me… “How am I supposed to wait patiently for marriage?” This is a question I have been seriously mulling over the past few months. In order to wait patiently for something, I realized that I had to actually understand what that […]
