  • Qualified
    In the past several years I have learned so much about how to become the person God intended me to be…how to live out my faith and what that means. This is such a process and I am still learning so much, but I love the idea of passing on what God is using to shape me to help others. One of the biggest lessons...

  • Encourage One Another
    The last few years have been an incredible time of growing and learning in my faith journey. I have learned so much that I want to share with other women to encourage and inspire them in their lives. Women are just such incredible people! We are CEO’s and writers and architects and teachers and wives and moms...and most of us, no all of us,...

  • Out of the Comfort Zone
    One of the privileges God has allowed me in my life is the opportunity to give women a platform and then watch them step out in faith and obedience when God places something on their heart. This month I have that privilege once again. Grace Workman joins us as guest poster for the month of March and I know you will be blessed as...

I'll never forget the day I met {him}. It was the fall of 2009, a beautiful sunny day, and my phone dinged as I walked across campus to class. I had winked...

  • Love the Hate Away
    Happy Friday! This week has been a rough one for me. I've been down and out with the flu (ugh!) and my medicine brain has been a fuzzy mess. One of the things I found myself doing was randomly scrolling Facebook. If only I could burn calories with the miles my thumbs have scrolled. I started seeing negative post after negative post and it...

My name is Sarah, and I am going to be your looooove coach! Not relationship love, though we'll cover some of that too. I'm talking about God's Love! Specifically, how to use love to drown out...

  • New Adventure
    I am always up for a new adventure.  I thrive on learning new things and visiting new places but I soon found that not only was the Lord leading me into this new ministry opportunity but part of the journey included writing a Bible study and book.  This particular task stretched me more than I ever imagined and it would take many years to...

  • A New Direction
    Retirement was an adjustment.  My husband was retired from public life but had a growing business he could operate from home.  He was not used to "a now at home all day wife" and I was not used to a husband that hung around all the time.  But that is a story for another day.  Somehow, however, we managed to carve out the togetherness...

  • New Beginnings
    Jeremiah 29: 11 “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” I love the challenge of starting something new. I have a creative side so no matter if it’s a new project, a new phase in life, a new thought with...

  • New Insight
      Funny how finding an old journal written years ago brings back memories almost forgotten. Times of struggles and trials that brought me to where I am now were written down.  Journaling has been my habit over the years and has given encouragement to me through each step along the journey.  Why?  This was something I did for myself and God used journal writing to...

    Hey everyone- Carissa here! One of my favorite Christmas passages comes from the words of Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist and the one who held the honor of hearing a word from the Lord for the first time in 400 years. "Because of God's tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those...

  • That's the Power of Love
    This third week of Advent is all about love: how love came down to redeem mankind, how love covers all sins through sacrifice... how Jesus is love. I appreciate how the love of God plays out in my life, particularly when it is revealed through friendship with other believers. I am excited to share one such friend with you all today. Deb's authenticity is...

  • Rejoice!
    "How my soul praises the Lord. How my spirit rejoices in God my Savior! For He took notice of His lowly servant girl, and from now on all generations will call me blessed. For the Mighty One is holy, and He has done great things for me." These are Mary's words shared in Luke 1:46-49. She was a young girl, probably 15 or 16 years...

  • A Thrill of Hope
    Doesn’t that phrase just sustain you even now as you are reading it. A thrill of hope. The heart-racing, butterfly producing, anticipation of something exciting, something of incredible and possibly life changing impact. A thrill. This Christmas song is one of my favorites. I think of it at least once each day of December as I do my best to keep my focus on...

    We are continuing our Faithful Friday blog post series on the subject of condemnation.  This week we will talk about a subject that everyone can relate to and that is pride. I have struggled with perfectionism on many different levels every since I can remember.  From second grade spelling bees to something as simple as packing my kids lunch— I have always had an expectation...

    Hey there!! I hope everyone has has a fabulous week so far! I know I have! We are continuing our faith-filled Friday’s on the subject of condemnation.

      I am so glad to be with you all for the month of November to share on these Faith-filled Fridays! I want to talk to you this month about a subject that has challenged me and that is condemnation.  Condemnation is a word that just sounds dirty..  And it even feels heavy and like a cloud of darkness swarming over you. It carries with...

  • Be Different
    I can't believe October is about to come to an end and we are beginning a new season.  A season that brings cold weather, fires, family gatherings and change. Fall is a constant reminder of change.  From the leaves changing colors to the ground covered in leaves as they fall preparing for new growth in the coming spring. The season of Thanksgiving and Christmas is...

  • Truth Over Feelings
    As I have shared in my previous posts.  God has me examining my heart.  He is refining me.  He is slowly chipping pride away. I have always loved to write.  Most of the time it comes so easy.  But for almost a year I have struggled to put my thoughts to paper. I have found myself asking God "where are you" and felt most of...

  • Hidden Grief
    Hey friends! I'm back for my last blog post on Invisibility. So far I've covered Motherhood, Social Media and Unanswered Prayer. Whew! Who knew there were so many ways we can feel unseen? These have been heavy topics so I really wanted to write something light hearted today. But after praying and giving it a lot of thought, I felt strongly that God wanted me...

  • In All Things Jesus
        “Every generous act and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights; with Him there is no variation or shadow cast by turning.” James 1:7 All things are from Him. It’s hard to accept that some times. Instead, we question are we good enough, have we done enough to deserve such a gift or a current blessing that He has...

    It was at the end of the training season for the Little Rock half-marathon that I remember going to a pre-race dinner.  I was pulling up to the hotel to pick up college friends who were in town for the race. As one friend proceeds to get into the car, she noticed the radio station on the Christian station and commented “April-you still listening...

  • He Hears
    It has been one of those weeks. Sometimes I have felt as if I could hardly breathe. I have been weepy and my emotions are raw. Usually when I feel this way it is because I am tired from lack of sleep or exhausted from traveling or even tired from doing “good” things that I know are worthwhile. Sometimes I feel something else is going...
