Finding Confidence in a Bigger Story

26 Oct 2016

By: Jennifer Spoelma Like many women, body image insecurities have played a major part in my story. My sophomore year of college, I started recognizing how my obsession with my body, and all the things I thought were wrong with it, was inhibiting my life. When I spent time with girlfriends I was only half there because my mind was consumed with comparing myself and...

God Doesn’t Do Flaws

14 Oct 2016

By: Alle Roley I started questioning for the first time why God made me the way He did when I was in sixth grade. I was one of the tallest girls in my class [I haven’t grown an inch since middle school] and I was also what a mild-mannered person might call a lil’ chunky. I didn’t see anything wrong with the way I was...

Identity Theft

05 Oct 2016

By: Sara Barratt “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Imagine a world where roses were called skunks and skunks, roses. Can you? Yeah, neither can I. While I understand the point William Shakespeare was making in this oft-quoted line from “Romeo and Juliet”, a rose is synonymous for its beauty and sweet smell that we can’t imagine it being called anything...

Changed by an Unchanging God

04 Oct 2016

By: Bri Deutsch It’s 2 a.m. The silence of night allows my tormenting thoughts to appear more daunting than they would in the vibrancy of day. Thoughts about a future that looks murky – a future no longer filled with the people I once knew to be my confident, where my “home” of three years would soon be in the distant past and a future...

Transitioning into Fall

19 Sep 2016

By: Rachel Brown September 22nd marks the official start of the autumn season and while there are so many fun things to look forward to in the fall, sometimes it’s difficult to transition from the carefree vibes of summer to the productive, pumpkin-scented months that follow.

Warrior Women

12 Sep 2016

By: Juliandra Durkin If you have been walking with God long enough, then you have probably experienced some highs and lows of being a daughter of the King in a war torn kingdom, planet Earth. Life is many things, but hard is definitely up there when you have an enemy whose best weapon against God’s heart is to break yours. However in James we read,...

My Mirror vs God’s Truth

24 Aug 2016

“You’re so stupid.” “I guess I look okay.” “Why did I eat all of that? No wonder I’m fat.” “I should have worked out harder.” “I’m such an idiot for forgetting that!” “No matter how hard I try, I’ll never be on time.” Talk, talk talk. Negative self talk. You know what I’m talking about? Sometimes it’s so subtle we don’t even realize we’re doing...

Excerpt from “Mirrors to Windows” by Katie Messer

19 Aug 2016

In Mirrors to Windows, Katie demonstrates a simple but dynamic change of viewpoint. Stop fixating on the internal (Mirrors): self-image, perceived needs, insatiable longing for acceptance and love. Instead, steer your eyes outward (Windows), and you’ll see with clarity that the best life and the truest love have been waiting for you all along. God is waiting to blow the roof off your expectations and...

Don’t Be A Settler

15 Aug 2016

“But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.” – Romans 8:25 You may have seen a DirecTV commercial recently where it depicts pioneer-clad people “settling” for cable television instead of choosing to use their satellite service. The tag line at the end of the ad is simple – “Don’t be a settler.” I usually don’t pay attention...

Passionate Pursuit

11 Aug 2016

By: Katie Messer What do you think of when you hear Cartier? Bentley? Personal staff? Private yachts? Multi-million dollar estates? What about, filling the pages of your passport? Dating the “hot” guy? Being the center of the social universe? Getting the job? And still, what do you think of in regards to being a good person? How about nipping, cutting, numbing or altogether altering yourself?...

Stop and Smell the Flowers

01 Aug 2016

By: Tekoa Manning It finally happened last year– I went to look in the mirror and saw my mother. I thought about how swiftly life can zoom past while we are in the fast lane, but when we move over to the slow lane we get a glimpse of the rearview mirror. Flowers and quilts come to mind. The next time you pass a flower...

How to Have a Healthy Body Image This Summer

27 Jul 2016

By: Rachel Brown Though we’re a few months into the summer season already, there’s still plenty of time for fun summery activities—weekends at the lake, afternoons at the pool, evenings spent hosting backyard barbecues. Throughout all of this goodness, it’s easier than we’d like to admit for body image worries to infiltrate our minds. While we know that we have been fearfully and wonderfully made,...

Because You Are Loved

20 Jul 2016

By: Juliandra Durkin I first heard this poem at a Wonderfully Made event when I was in college. Sitting outside on the lawn, one of the girls at the end of the meeting asked if she could share a poem that meant a lot to her. I remember my eyes stinging a bit with tears because the words were meaningful and pressed on my heart....
