Can I be Complete Without Marriage?

I’ve heard it suggested that marriage is the only place you can attain full intimacy with God. It seems that because Christian covenant marriage is the concession for full, and hopefully safe, expression of one’s sexuality, it is synonymously the epitome of intimacy. However, I do not believe this is true. Let me try to […]

Be Counter-cultural

“…this Western Culture that we are a part of, no longer believes that there is any such thing as an absolute truth.” You and I live in a world which stresses the idea that “truth” is a relative term. The vast majority of people we interact with on a daily basis believe, with ever growing […]

You’re an Extra

No one is going to remember you when you die. This isn’t just an opinion of mine, it’s a statement backed up by statistics. According to Ancestry.com, half of Americans know the name of only one or neither of their great-grandparents. 22% of Americans don’t even know what their grandfathers do or did for a […]

Daring To Be Obedient

My journey to becoming a missionary with YWAM began in September 2013. For several years before coming to YWAM Montana I had been actively involved in different youth ministries.

How to Avoid Misusing and Abusing the Bible

a particular passage in Philippians 4 immediately jumped into my mind. Which states, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Relevant magazine produced an article on The Five Most Misused and Abused Bible Verses in the church. When I saw the title, a particular passage in Philippians 4 immediately jumped into 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 […]

This Isn’t Just For You

In our first week of SBS, one of our teachers had us write down why we came. I wrote this in my notebook, “I came to SBS to gain my own understanding about this book I dedicate my life to and to gain intimacy with the One who called me.” My heart was pure and I believe […]

How God Spoke to Me Through a Pineapple

Recently, God has been speaking to me through the use of Pineapples. Yes you read that right, Pineapples. How has a simple, common fruit become the source of Heavenly revelation you ask? Well, let me tell you. First, did you know that pineapples didn’t use to be so common? In the 1600s, pineapples were so […]

Living a Life Worthy of the Calling

Worthiness. Worth is something the Lord spoke a lot to me about this Fall. The fact that though on my own I have nothing, I am nothing; I am worthy because He calls me such. When I was in Nepal, a couple verses had me thinking… “Live a life worthy of the calling you have […]

Does God Give Us More Than We Can Handle?

Most of us have heard this at least once, and it goes something like this: We’re going through a difficult season and someone well meaning tells us, “God won’t give you more than you can handle” and, at first, it seems comforting. The idea that we won’t receive overbearing circumstances sounds like a wonderful statement […]
