Is Perfectionism Hindering You From Sharing the Gospel?

About halfway through my Discipleship Training School outreach, my team spent a week in a Cambodian village (during Khmer New Year). It’s a week I won’t forget. In the mornings, we usually walked to houses in the village, visiting and talking with people. If we visited with Christians, we prayed and encouraged them. If we […]

What Led Me to do a DTS

It wasn’t until I was nineteen that I actually gave my life to the Lord. I had grown up in church and had plenty of opportunities to hear about Him, but my life was transformed when I “met Jesus” and had a real encounter with Him at nineteen. I couldn’t believe that I had missed […]

What’s the Point Anyway?

Purpose, Joy, and Satisfaction. At the end of the day, isn’t that what we want to see produced in our lives through what we do and who we spend our time with? I’ve thought about this ever since I could remember. As I was growing up, I can see that I attempted to try to […]

How Do I Know That I Can Trust God?

I have been a Christian since as long as I can remember. I was blessed to grow up in a home with two godly parents who taught me from the moment I was born that Jesus was THE answer and, more importantly, walked this out in their daily life. However, watching someone live their life […]

Sex Is Bad – But It’s Great!

AN UNMARRIED WOMAN’S PERSPECTIVE In recent years I’ve had countless conversations with Christian young people – some married and some unmarried, who have expressed a lack of conviction when it comes to sexual integrity. The difficulty has come with what their Christian circles of influence have taught them. One thing they are being told is […]

Don’t Ever Let The Plate Pass By

Letting the Plate Pass By. This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me…. This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me…. Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy […]

Intentionality and Hospitality: They Go Together

It was January 12, 2016, and I was having a rotten day. I’d just gotten an email from my best friend in the world and she was having a hard time. Back home, friends were getting sick, breaking up, moving away, and everything seemed hard. As for me, I’d been in Taiwan for about a month and I’d […]

I am Loved

“God, I am sorry.” “God, I am hurting.” “God, I am dirty. I am a disappointment. I am so incredibly lost.” This has been my conversation to God most of my life. I came to Him in my brokenness, over and over and over again. I came to Him for forgiveness, but never for love. I […]

The Struggle of Obedience

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will […]

To the Doubters

I doubt… A LOT. I think it’s completely normal to doubt. But what if God just simply wants us to believe that He is capable of more than we can imagine?  It’s more than we can imagine because we put our lives and our God in a box 90% of the time. I have a […]
