15 Easy Ways To Show Grace And Kindness This Week

If you had to rate on a scale from  1 to 10 (10 being the most) how much grace and kindness you’ve shown in the last few weeks, where would you be? A 5? A close 9? Wherever you may fall on the scale, I’m going to go ahead and guess that we all (myself included) have plenty of room to show more. For many of us, Monday through Friday, we’re so busy with life that stopping to think about giving more grace and kindness […]

Tips For “Being Still” When Moving Is What You Do Best

being still

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. I’m all for a good emotional cleanse and for keeping it real but from a Christian standpoint, there are times where we should speak up and times where we should probably have a seat. Whether you’re facing confrontation, trying to decide whether or not to post something on social media, or just deciding to pass on something that you’ve heard, it’s always a […]

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, […]

Equipped Series Pt. 2 | The Fruit Of The Spirit

The Word

In part one of this series, we talked about the Holy Spirit and how he is the ultimate helper and fundamental tool in our faith walk. He leads us, he guides us in truth, but aside from these things, there are a few more benefits of being filled with the Holy Spirit and we know them to be the fruit of the Spirit. I like to think of the Fruit of the Spirit as our ‘Holy benefits plan’. When we decided to believe in the […]

Equipped Series Pt. 1 | The Holy Spirit

The Word

When God placed human life on this earth He knew better than anyone else that life would be no walk in the park. Believe it or not, He intended for it to be that way. If everything was easy, how would we be reminded that we need him? Our dependence on God is central to our entire being. From the moment He banished Adam and Eve from the garden, from the moment He destroyed the tower of Babel, to the moment He sacrificed His own […]
