What’s the difference between perfectionism and excellence?

There is a strong theme throughout the bible that challenges believers to walk in excellence as followers of Christ. But, when I personally began working in ministry, this expectation filled me with anxiety – fearing that my own inabilities would lead to rejection from others if I was not being the most excellent Christian possible.

What If God Isn’t Telling Me What to Do?

…but as life continues, you realize just how out of control you are. Life is always full of transition. Whether it’s moving, a new job, relationships changing or ending, or even a perspective shift. Transition is inevitable and in many ways, unwelcome. We enjoy stability and knowing what tomorrow will bring. It brings us security […]

Is Following Jesus Supposed to be This Scary?

…this has probably been the hardest and most uncomfortable process that I have ever willingly engaged in. As I learn more about who God is and who I am, I release more and more control of my life. While this is liberating, and I am becoming more of who I was created to be, this […]

Are You Willing To Pause If God Asks?

As I entered into 2017, I felt the Lord ask me to work on one thing this year:  to PAUSE. Pause is defined as “a temporary stop in action or speech” and while it’s easy to hit the pause button on my phone or computer… I’ve learned that it is REALLY hard to hit the […]

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 […]

What I Learned About God Through a Game of Golf

I recently celebrated my 24th Birthday here in Montana, which is something entirely different than what I’m used to in Long Island N.Y (shout-out).

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 […]

What If God Stays Silent?

The silence feels devastating. If I lack these things when God speaks, you can probably guess how my heart is when I feel He is silent. There have been moments in my life where God speaks so clearly to me. I find myself either thankful for His words or not happy because I wanted to […]

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 […]

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 […]
