Peace in the Storm

By: Kendra McClelland Picture yourself getting ready for a formal event with all your best girl friends. You gather hours before you need to leave to allow for spontaneous dance parties, light snacking, and welcomed distractions. Once you’re ready to go, you step outside, and there’s violent gusts of wind tossing your hair like crashing waves. Suddenly, your perfectly curled hair looks like a tornado...

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,...

Ready to Go

By: Katie Messer While seated at a table within a crowded restaurant in the Middle East, Kaw-Thar quickly adjusted her black hijab around her face to hide a stray hair that had come loose before nervously asking her next and most poignant question, “All this is interesting, but who do you say Jesus Christ is?” Knowing the risk of answering such a question, the young...

It can seem especially daunting when life continues in such a way for days, months, and for some years. But be encouraged, friends, as God provided us with His unchanging words to bring life to our hurting hearts! Perhaps...

Looking Ahead

By: Rachel Brown Christmas has come and gone (how?!) and New Year’s Eve is quickly approaching.

But how do we do that, exactly? Here are some ideas. Write...

Kneeling not Knowing

By: Erin Weidemann “You’re on a need to know basis and you don’t need to know.” I cringe. My mom used to say this to me all the time when I was a kid. I used to think, well that’s annoying. Now that I am a mother myself, I understand that it might be the response that makes the most sense after being asked the...

In a Spiritual Rut

By: Rachel Brown As we do in any area of our lives, sometimes we fall into a rut, spiritually speaking. We know God and we love Him, but for some reason or another, we don’t feel connected to Him. We feel uninspired or detached, and we’re not really sure what to do about it. So what should we do when we feel far from God?...

The Gift of Vulnerability

By: Bri Deutsch I love walking.  It’s during my walks that I connect with God on a deeper level.  And that day was no different — it was a rainy, fall day and I was taking a walk on a grainy path trail that was littered with multi-colored leaves and overhanging trees. As the rain began to pelt, I felt compelled to keep walking –...

“I AM” is Here

by Christina Stolaas Note from Anne: We don’t normally post several times a day on Know Your Value, but in light of the catastrophic damages that hit the east coast yesterday when Hurricane Sandy arrived, it seemed necessary to add in a bit of extra encouragement. I love the verse from Isaiah that our guest blogger, Christina Stolaas, writes about in this post. I hope...

Don’t Just Facebook Jesus

by Christina Stolaas As I’m reading through the gospels for the first time in years, something is gnawing in my spirt. As I turn page after page, each chapter documents the historical moments of Jesus life on earth, His spoken words a bright glaring red. But the quiet discontent in my heart has left a thought for me to ponder. Am I reading, studying, underlining...

“Because He Cares For You…”

by Kristina Fertala Lately, I have been seeing the fruit that comes with inviting God to walk with me throughout my day. It is easy to think that God only wants to deal with the heavy stuff in my life, that He only wants to fix my big, dark secrets, and doesn’t want to be bothered by the little things. But He does! He delights...

Help My Unbelief

Below is a biblical story of faith and belief from Mark 9. It speaks to the power of Christ over all things, as well as the power of prayer even when our faith is feeling empty. 14 When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them. 15 As soon as all the people...

In the Quiet of the Morning

by Natalie Lynn Borton [photo credit] I moved to Austin several weeks ago and have been surprised by how difficult the transition has been. I thought it would be easy, smooth and effortless to live in such a beautiful and energetic place, but I confess it’s been a big struggle for me to get comfortable and adjusted. I find myself being overly introspective and self-critical,...
