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, […]

Breaking Up With Conditional Kindness

unconditional kindness

Lately, God has been really dealing with me about the way that society has taught us to deal with one another. We’ve all seen the memes and the self-righteous Facebook updates declaring that from this point forward we should treat people the way that they have treated us or that maybe we should only do as much for others as they have done for us. I’m sure at some point or another I subscribed to this way of thinking but as a Christ-Follower, this way […]

3 Easy Steps to Getting The Most Out Of Your Bible Study

There’s no question that reading the Bible is a fundamental part of our faith. It’s intended to be our go-to when things get tough or when our faith is low, or whenever we’re just downright confused. The funny thing is, out of all of the many questions that the Bible answers, someone, somewhere, forgot to include instructions on how to read the thing. Do we read it from cover to cover? Do we read passages as we feel inspired? This was something that I struggled […]
