We all have an innate desire to leave the world better than when you entered. Some people do this on a large scale through their work or earning big titles and important positions - but that’s not what I desire. Unlike these “large-scale” impacts, the only thing that’s won’t expire is the life-changing influence we can have on a person’s life. Because the...

You’re not going to want to deal with it when you wake up every morning. I am fully aware that there will be many times in my marriage when I roll over in the morning and look at my obnoxiously-snoring, eventually middle aged, and at some point balding husband (whoever this lucky fool is…) and I’m not going to want to deal with it. But I know I’ll be reminded of a promise....

I go to bed every night at 1:30 AM while...
Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve...– Steve Jobs
The Blessing of Battles
I am flawed and so incredibly broken. But me saying this as a follower of Christ probably doesn’t surprise you because our sinful nature is a pillar of Christianity. However, I’m not saying these words because I feel obligated because of my faith, but because in the past few months I have felt the pain of my flaws more than ever. I am a self-righteous Pharisee. I am the very thing that...

For or with?
Which is better? For or with? God has captured my heart with this question over the past week. In Luke 10: 38 - 42 Jesus paints a picture that is so prevalent to our lives, yet we (or at least I) refuse to see it. Martha runs around frantically preparing for Jesus, while Mary sits at His feet, dripping off of every word uttered from His precious lips of Life. And Martha, as many of us would say...
