Peace in the Storm

23 Dec 2016

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...

Short Poem, Timeless Celebration

12 Dec 2016

By: Juliandra Durkin   What a wonder, what a sight The Son of God was born tonight And to a woman so young and poor Her name, sweet Mary, Remembered forevermore.   Chosen before time to carry a King He who came so selflessly A life that started in a barn Animals and shepherds Witnessed the Savior’s first sounds.   Who would have known, Who...

The Mess and the Mender

30 Nov 2016

By: Tiffany Burlingame I was a master deflector My own prideful protector I denied the pain needed a resurrector So I became a neglector I refused to surrender to Jesus The only person with power to free us I was gripped by shame Until Jesus called me by name “Tiffany, you are a daughter of the king Take refuge under my wing I will cover you under my...

Gratitude Through the Ups and Downs

27 Nov 2016

By: Rachel Brown November is a month of thankfulness, causing us to sit back and really contemplate the blessings that have been bestowed upon us. Here at Wonderfully Made we strive to thank God daily for all He’s done for us, but we find ourselves in a particularly thoughtful mood each year when Thanksgiving rolls around. We know that it’s easy to practice gratitude when...

5 Ways to Show Thanks This Season

22 Nov 2016

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...

Be Brave, Little One

18 Nov 2016

By: Erin Weidemann Whether you’re a mom or not, you know this struggle: the struggle of “Am I Beautiful?” and “Am I Enough?” Chances are you that during your early years you spent a little time crying alone in your room, wondering whether or not you mattered. It’s not much different for today’s girls. In fact, it’s much, much worse. Girls are at war: with...

Flying Beyond the Hardship

14 Nov 2016

By: Tekoa Manning Gratitude. Thankfulness. Usually, neither of those exist without first experiencing heartache, loss, and hard times. You have to go through one, to embrace the other in a manner worthy of noticing. Sometimes we miss the gratitude and turn bitter like lemons. This is the month of thankfulness. We try and become more aware of the simple things like our eyes opening in...

God is Still Our King

04 Nov 2016

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...

Fall Fun!

02 Nov 2016

By: Rachel Brown There are things to adore about every season, especially autumn. We have been reveling in pumpkin spice treats, Sunday night football, and, even though the weather isn’t cooperating in most of the country quite yet, dreams of scarves and sweaters and boots. There are so many fun things to do this fall, but in the midst of our busy schedules and mile-high...

Finding Confidence in a Bigger Story

26 Oct 2016

By: Jennifer Spoelma Like many women, body image insecurities have played a major part in my story. My sophomore year of college, I started recognizing how my obsession with my body, and all the things I thought were wrong with it, was inhibiting my life. When I spent time with girlfriends I was only half there because my mind was consumed with comparing myself and...

God Doesn’t Do Flaws

14 Oct 2016

By: Alle Roley I started questioning for the first time why God made me the way He did when I was in sixth grade. I was one of the tallest girls in my class [I haven’t grown an inch since middle school] and I was also what a mild-mannered person might call a lil’ chunky. I didn’t see anything wrong with the way I was...

Identity Theft

05 Oct 2016

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...

Changed by an Unchanging God

By: Bri Deutsch It’s 2 a.m. The silence of night allows my tormenting thoughts to appear more daunting than they would in the vibrancy of day. Thoughts about a future that looks murky – a future no longer filled with the people I once knew to be my confident, where my “home” of three years would soon be in the distant past and a future...

From seasonal foods, drinks and cinema classics to home décor and photo props, the pumpkin takes center stage! But, have you ever seen the pumpkin as a way to explain the Christian life?

Transitioning into Fall

19 Sep 2016

By: Rachel Brown September 22nd marks the official start of the autumn season and while there are so many fun things to look forward to in the fall, sometimes it’s difficult to transition from the carefree vibes of summer to the productive, pumpkin-scented months that follow.

Warrior Women

12 Sep 2016

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,...

My Mirror vs God’s Truth

24 Aug 2016

“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...
