Building An Intimate Relationship With God

intimacy God

No matter where you may be in your faith walk, intimacy with God should always be your desire. Intimacy moves beyond cookie cutter prayers, weekly church attendance, and serving in the media ministry. An intimate relationship with God says Lord, I need to be near you more than I need to fulfill my own wants and desires. James 4:8, one of my favorite scriptures says, “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” Everything about this scripture lets us know that God is […]

I can’t even lie…five days out of seven I’m a procrastinator’s procrastinator. Usually, if I have an opportunity to get it done the day before it needs to be done, I’ll take it.  This is definitely not something that I’m proud of but it’s something that I am working to get better with and I’d bet that several of you reading this are probably working toward the same thing.

I have a confession: I’m a bit of a busy body. I like things done when I want them done, how I want them done, and I’m prepared to do it all on my own. This trait has been really useful in this age of digital DIY but let’s be honest, it hasn’t always been the best when God has needed for me to just stand still. I’ve faced it— I am a mover and sometimes standing still and trusting that God will come through […]

Spiritual Survival Kit | Knowing When To Speak Up And When To Sit Down

when to speak

In today’s society, oversharing and saying exactly what you feel at the exact moment that you feel it has become the norm.

How To Build Your Confidence And Fight Insecurity

Confidence is one of those traits that we always admire and silently wish that we had more of. When we’re watching our favorite YouTube personalities, reality stars and bloggers, it seems like their level of confidence and self-assurance is so far out of reach but here’s the truth of the matter: confidence is a choice. Just like we choose to have faith and just like we choose whether or not we’re going to have joy in spite of our circumstances, confidence works in the same […]

Equipped Series Pt. 3 | The Word

The Word

I want to end this series by talking about another really important tool that has been given to us but has been neglected and overlooked by so many: the Word of God. If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time, then you know that I am an unashamed, unadulterated, Bible-believing Christian. The Bible is my instruction manual, my reference tool for any situation, and reading it is as important to me as brushing my teeth every day. At one point in my life, […]
