Because God is Good

A few weeks before moving to college, I took in a sermon based on God’s grace. The pastor shared that we are under a false belief if we think our good deeds gain our eternities in Heaven. This was not a new concept to me, but God shed light on areas I was living in […]

Years after getting the magazine, I look back at the central […]

A Love that Surpasses All

I walked through TJ Maxx today and walked out without buying anything. My day consisted of running a lot of errands and also finding myself being inwardly judgmental of others. I came home asking God for forgiveness and for His help in preparing to lead a young adults small group.  Finding myself in my shower, […]

To the One Doubting Your Future

I remember what it feels like to not know the direction of my future. I can vividly imagine the days I spent walking on my family’s dirt path praying about where I would attend college and what I would major in.  There are so many options and I definitely wanted to have some sort of […]
