To the girl who…is so ready to be a mama.

To the high school girl who is so ready to be a mama. You don’t share this desire with many people around you for fear of odd stares, but deep down, it’s there. To the single girl who’s heart is so ready to start your family. So ready to wash dirty hands and scrub little…

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…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…is feeling called to step into high waters.

When the Israelites were on the brink of entering into the land of Canaan, the land that the Lord had promised their father’s long ago, this “promised” land, there stood a river blocking their way. Yep. The Jordan river served as some sort of barrier from them entering into this land that they knew would…

The 21 days that changed my life.

This month one year ago….I was invited to be apart of a church’s 21 day prayer and fasting. Every morning they would gather at 6 am, everyone all bundled up with coffees in hand, to spend a whole hour talking to God. Not just talking. Weeping. Crying out. Pacing back and forth as they moved…

To the girl who…needs to stay.

“Where you go I will go and where you stay I will stay…” Ruth 2 Going is fun. Hearing the Lord tell you to go is thrilling. Exciting. Adventurous. And if anyone knows me at all, they know I’m one girl who’s always up for some adventure. Let’s go do something new. Let’s go on…

To the girl who…is walking through a trial.

Lately I’ve found myself flipping over to the book of James every time I sit down with the Lord. I feel like I’m betraying my journey through Deuteronomy with every glance into another book, but I just can’t help myself. I don’t know if it’s the fact that my husband is in love with the…

To the girl who…needs to be still.

When you get news you weren’t expecting. When you don’t know what TO expect. When you are uncertain of what tomorrow holds. When you’re reaching for control, but feel helpless. When your world doesn’t seem at all to be playing out like you imagined it in your mind, the first response we ladies tend to…

To the girl who…wants to do something great for God.

Hey God. I know I’m no one special. I know I’m small. I know that there are so many other women out there doing massive things for you. Speaking to thousands. Singing to the masses. Leading ministries that are literally changing not just my country, but the world. I see so many of them all…

To the girl who…needs to speak LIFE over herself.

To the girl who needs to speak LIFE over herself. What’s on your mind today? Are you preparing your heart for a new season? Are you looking with undeniable fear at a giant in front of you? Have you found yourself waiting for that husband? Waiting for that sweet womb of yours to open? Waiting…

To the (barren) woman who…needs a word.

In preparing for the arrival of two brand new little lives, my mom sent me a text one morning in May asking me for specific verses.  Let me explain. Several weeks ago, we found ourselves on Pinterest browsing through baby shower pictures, scrounging for some cute ideas. We came across this picture of a bouquet of…

Ashleigh and Brett’s Adoption Journey…I’m scared.

I’m going to be vulnerably honest with you right now. I’m scared.  As the day quickly approaches, I feel my heart drawing closer and closer to my Daddy’s. Fear has lit a fire under me and I’m running to my safe place. I’m running to the One I know beyond a doubt holds me and…
