GATHER: The story of Courtney Sucher

I am Courtney Sucher. I am a wife to a husband named Zack who plays golf for a career. I am a mother to two little girls who hold my whole heart. And I am a daughter of the Lord. A daughter who has met chaos. A daughter who has been best buds with stress….

GATHER: The story of Kelsee Philpot

To the ones who are in the thick of tough seasons… How is that sentence alone even fair right? You just made it through the toughest time, got a minute of fresh air, and now you find yourself right back where you just were. Searching for hope, answers, next steps, etc. Does that sound familiar?…

GATHER: The story of Reagan Holmes

My name is Reagan Holmes and I struggle with my purpose – my calling – my future. I’m 18 years old. I have my whole life ahead of me. And I have no idea what I am going to do with it. My journey began 4 years ago. I was 14 years old when I…

GATHER: The story of Brittany Price

Suffering was a word that I heard but didn’t know intimately until one rainy fall morning in 2015. I was at bible study when I received a phone call that would change my world forever. My healthy 30 year old husband suddenly died – his heart went out of rhythm with no warning or explanation….

To the girl who…has drifted from God.

You’re starring out at the ocean. Your toes buried in the sand. Sunglasses blocking the shade. You’re focused on the sound of the waves crashing against each other. Zoned in on the way they foam white after they hit and wash up on the shore. You decide to step out and wade in the ocean…

To the girl who…doesn’t know what to do.

“Decisions are the worst…” One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTES EVER from one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIES: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Forget the fact that the girl who said this in the movie was having a ridiculously difficult time deciding what to wear out of her massive million dollar closet….

To the girl who…thought he was the one.

You were out with friends. You didn’t know he would be there. You didn’t know you would lock eyes with his. You didn’t know you would fall. Hard. You were in the same class together. You sat in the same room, separated by a row of chairs. You didn’t know he would try to make…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Affliction” The longer I remain in affliction, the more glory brought to His name. The longer I remain in affliction, the more people see His strength and not mine. The longer I remain in affliction, the greater the reward. The longer I remain in affliction, the healthier I grow and the closer to Him I…

To the girl who…is mad at God.

I sit here in tears. I sit here balled up in anger. In bitterness. My teeth are clenched. My fists are raised. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think I’m mad at God. I haven’t been mad at God many times in my short twenty four years on this earth, but after many…

To the girl who…questions if God wants you.

OK…so what is it? You know, that thing, person, place that keeps you from experiencing God? For me, many times its all three. I go throughout my day questioning where God is, what He’s up to, or to be perfectly honest, if I am even hearing Him? I get so wrapped up in where He…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Warrior” I find myself continuing to ponder on the truth of II Chronicles 16:9- “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him…” God is looking for the warriors. Yes, He does strengthen the hearts of those weak and wounded but He also…

To the girl who…doesn’t feel enough.

 ” BUT he said to me,” My GRACE IS sufficient for you, for my power is made PERFECT in weakness.”                                                                      …
