You Are More

In the case of those who struggle with disordered eating, the standard of legalism might be to be ‘model thin’ to achieve a certain weight at all costs, or to believe that when we ‘lose’ weight, life will be perfect and we will be free from all our problems. When we adopt external methods to constrain our behavior, we’re buying the lie that victory can...

Morning Renewal

by Natalie Lynn Borton I love mornings. They are certainly my favorite time of day, and what I look forward to every night as I fall asleep. As my dear friend Kenna once said to me, “It’s as if you wait all night for morning to come.” It’s sort of silly, but also somewhat true. I like mornings for a variety of reasons: breakfast, crisp...

Yearning for Joy

by Natalie Lynn Borton Over this past year, there have been quite a few tragedies in Brian’s and my circles of friends. From death and sickness to tough friendships and trouble at work, so many people seemed to be having a rough season in 2011. The always inspiring C.S. Lewis once wrote, Human history is the long terrible story of man trying to find something...

Walking Tall When All You Feel Is Small

by Allie Marie Smith I recently had the privilege of hearing one of my biggest role models and inspirations speak. She’s a woman of faith; a committed wife and mother; successful entrepreneur and philanthropist. I had every intention of introducing myself, but I was late to get a seat and the meet-and-greet line was twenty-people deep. I didn’t want to be a bother. I even...

Ocean Song by Jessica McLean

by Allie Marie Smith I started off my morning with a girls group I’m leading using our friend Christina DiMari’s bible study “You’re Designed to Shine.” It’s quickly becoming the highlight of my week. This morning, I played my sweet friend Jessica McLean’s music video, “Ocean Song.” It’s one of my all-time favorite songs (and Jess is also one of my all-time favorite musicians and...

Media Commentary: The Emmy’s

by Kati Smith Hollywood’s big awards shows are always fascinating to me. Watching the stars come down the red carpet, I can’t peel my eyes away from the TV. The lights are flashing and everything from the diamonds and satin to the flawless skin sparkles and glows. I’m mesmerized by the glamour and the A-list couples and all of those designer gowns. Then the show...

Contract Signing & Bible Study Planning

by Natalie Lynn Borton On Friday Allie, Christie, Kayla and I met at the W Hotel in Westwood to plan our outline and assign chapters for the bible study we’re writing this fall for Wonderfully Made! We signed our contract, prayed for guidance about the study, and worked through all of the logistics, like what voice we’ll use in our writing, what each chapter is...

The Key to the Closet

by Natalie Lynn Borton [photo credit] Have you ever investigated your own heart to discover that there’s something dead and rotting inside, something that you want to keep for yourself and refuse to hand over to the Lord? Last summer while I was visiting my family on the east coast, we attended our church in Massachusetts called Church in the Pines. Pastor Joel shared a...

Things I Don’t Do

by Natalie Lynn Borton This post is 100% inspired by a chapter in Shauna Niequist‘s newest book, Bittersweet, which I read earlier this year and absolutely loved (see my review here). Shauna was the featured guest at a women’s Christmas tea I attended, and when she spoke on stage she shared this entire chapter with the women in the audience. The beautifully crafted words of...

A Standard of Grace

by Natalie Lynn Borton I’ve always fallen more on the perfectionist side of the spectrum. I have unrealistic ideas about the kind of life I should live and the kind of woman I should be, and I tend to be slow to grant myself the necessary grace to live a sane and peaceful life. Thus, when I saw this sweet little image posted on Glamour...

Media Commentary: The Bachelorette

by Kati Smith My first year of college I lived on the bottom floor of a brick building, and our television came in the form of bunny ears. (I’m sorry if you don’t get that reference. Google it.) The screen was always fuzzy. You had to position the antennas just right to get good enough signal—we propped them up with books, taped them to walls,...

Sexual Healing

Our girl Melissa from our SCU Chapter posted this on her FB page and I instantly knew I had to share it with you girls because it’s a message I wish I would have heard. At fourteen, I started my freshman year of high school hoping to lose my virginity on my prom night – I thought it was the most romantic way ever (that...
