Beauty and Purpose In the Waiting

By Arielle Estoria || There is something about this season that is just as frustrating as it is beautiful. It is the point in our lives where we decide to either sit and twiddle our thumbs waiting for someone to come along and give our lives purpose and excitement or it’s the season where we are wild and reckless with a “do now, think later”...

5 Ways to Show Thanks This Season

By: Katie Messer As Thanksgiving is upon us in only a matter of days, take a moment to assess your true feelings of giving thanks. Are they determined by a situation or by the unchanging status of our Lord, Jesus Christ? As I have reflected within my own life, I have come to the conclusion that the world only champions certain blessings. And for other...

Identity Theft

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...

Warrior Women

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,...

What Do Our Hearts Know?

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...

Facing the Son

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...

Growing with Purpose

By: Kate Rapier There is this tree right outside of my front window. A wall of trees actually. They are big, lush, green trees. Not evergreens, but in the spring and summer months they are big, vibrant, beauitiful trees. I apologize that I do not know the proper name for these guys, but botany has never been my strong suit. All I know is that...

Learning to Own My Story

By: Lauren Goderwis “What happened?” Hearing that question sends my stomach through the floor. Every. Single. Time. It yanks me back to the shame and embarrassment, the confusion and darkness, that I walked through not too long ago. It punches me with the pain, the hurt, the hopelessness, and the loneliness I thought I’d never escape. I freeze. “It’s a long story.” Why is it...

Tit for Tat – Pay Me Back

By: Katie Messer “The merciful are blessed, for they will be shown mercy” (Matthew 5:7). Have you even been blown away by the generosity of another? Maybe you are in college and instant soup is on the menu multiple times a week. Perhaps you are working multiple jobs, but still not getting ahead financially.

Now What?

You know what I’m talking about- moving home for summer, you don’t feel quite like the daughter that grew up in your parents home, you’re kind of an adult, but then you kind of still depend on them to...

It’s Better to Give Than to Receive

By: Juliandra Durkin “She wants me to use my gas money, to drive the opposite direction, to pick her up then drive back to the park two blocks from me, just because she doesn’t feel like driving tonight?!” I stared at my phone aghast at my friend’s request for a ride to the park where we decided to go walking that evening. Stomping to the...

Ascending Love: An Easter Story

By: Katie Messer “He was right.” Thomas recalled to himself. Still staring up into the sky, with the remaining ten disciples. Thomas continued, “I will forever sing Your praises, Jesus. Thank you.” Jesus of Nazareth had ascended into heaven after conquering death on a cross, just as the prophecies said of the Messiah (Psalm 16:10, Isaiah 52:13-Isaiah 53:12, Daniel 7:13-14, John 14:1-4, John 16:16, John 16:25-28)....

The Beauty of Repentance

By: Juliandra Durkin What does Christ’s death on the cross really mean for us? If we grew up in the church, then we know the story… Jesus grew up in Nazareth and at the Lord’s timing was baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan River. At that point, God the Father sent a dove and spoke from the Heaven’s to say, “This is my...

Father Knows Best

For too long I’ve been concerned about the desire to be in a relationship. When I start to think about what it would be like to have a boyfriend, quite quickly, my mood can flip, on the verge of becoming completely obsessed with the idea.

A Shrub to an Oak

By: Juliandra Durkin Have you ever started a book that just seemed to take forever to get through? One that you started and stopped, picked up and put down, brought with you to read during appointments and then kept on your shelf for months?

On Waiting & Walking Through Open Doors

By: Rachel Brown When we’re waiting and praying and dreaming for something, it’s hard to know exactly how to move forward. It’s easy to second-guess ourselves as we mentally sort through the process, asking ourselves plenty of questions along the way. Do we need to seek out stillness, reveling in our quiet time with God? Or should we be continually walking through open doors, submersing...
