By: Rachel Brown We can’t believe it’s August! Summer is flying by, but there’s still plenty of time before Labor Day Weekend is upon us.

We’ve rounded up several ways that you can get busy serving, and we’d love...

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....

What Do Our Hearts Know?

18 Jul 2016

By: Tekoa Manning “If our hearts know nothing against us, we have confidence in approaching God” 1 John 3:21. What do our hearts know? “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9 KJV. Yahweh searches the hearts of men to see whats inside them. He knows. Simple. Short. To the point. Can you remember a time in...

When You Invite God Into Your Breakup

05 Jul 2016

By: Danielle Kingsley I recently dated a great guy for a few months. He had all the key qualities and character traits I’ve ever wanted in a godly man, and on top of that, he was all kinds of handsome. On paper, we were perfect for each other. We had so much in common, we made each other laugh, we served together, and we challenged...

To Save or Spend

28 Jun 2016

By Christie Pierce To save or to spend? We’re faced with that question in a hundred different ways each day. I used to be an obsessive spender. At twenty-four years old, my grandparents gave me ten thousand dollars. I went out and bought Gucci shoes and silk dresses and I don’t even remember what else. The money was gone within weeks. I had a zero...

Bikini Bod and Freedom

28 Jun 2016

By: Charmaine Porter Y’all modesty is frustrating! This is the one TRUTH that everyone seems to skip over when they talk about how great modesty is and why we should strive for it. I work for a purity ministry and we believe in modesty because it’s important to God, but very rarely will anyone say this – modesty ain’t no joke! It’s tough! And it’s...

By Allie Marie Smith If you’re like me and have struggled with food and body image issues, you realize that it’s a journey. Sometimes we take two steps toward freedom only to take one step back.

Facing the Son

23 Jun 2016

By: Kaci Piccillo Wanting to fit in is a woe faced only by junior high schoolers, right? Ha. Certainly, it becomes less pronounced as you come to know and accept who you are as an individual, but the desire to be a part of something bigger than yourself— to belong— is one that persists throughout all of life, expressing itself wherever a community of people...

The Lost Art of Listening

21 Jun 2016

By: Juliandra Durkin My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. James 1:19 Have you ever had one of those falling dreams that you don’t know if you’re going up or down and you wake up? Or a dream where you’re running away from a bad guy and your feet...

Growing with Purpose

All I know is that...

5 Modesty Myths and Cute Summer Styles

08 Jun 2016

By: Danielle Kingsley “I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothing. For women who claim to be devoted to God should make themselves attractive by the good things they do.” I Timothy 2:9-10 (NLT) I...
