God is Still Our King

By: Juliandra Durkin This election season has been a downright battle between the candidates that has left the rest of us as casualties in a lot of ways. Facebook wars, Hillary and Trump ads that demonize the opposite candidate everywhere I turn, and people pitting against each other because of their political beliefs. If you’re into politics, great. If you’re not into politics, great. Either...

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.

My Mirror vs God’s Truth

“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

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

“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

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?

How about nipping, cutting, numbing or altogether altering yourself?...

The Lost Art of Listening

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...

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...

A couple days ago I hit delete and let the DT’s begin. I started realizing that I was carrying my phone with me like I would a 3-month-old baby and not getting much accomplished with...
