How To Create A Christ-Centered Morning Routine

morning routine

  I think most of us will agree that mornings are probably the most hectic part of the day next to sitting around in 5-o’clock traffic.  We’re rushing to get ready for work (or to start the daily to-do list), scoffing down the quickest breakfast that we can find, trying to beat the rush on the highway, and if you have children then there’s no need for me to explain—hectic is more than likely the norm in your world. The tricky thing about mornings is that we have no earthly idea what we’re going to wake up to. We could wake up and find that the dog has chewed a hole in the carpet. We could wake up to a broken coffee pot (God forbid because I can’t even imagine). And more seriously, we could pick up our smartphones and find that an active shooter is locked inside of an […]

Adam’s Rib: The Christian Podcast For Women That You NEED To Hear

Adam's Rib Podcast

I love a good podcast. If it’s informational, uplifting and interesting, I’m here for it. A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon (and I use the term ‘stumbled upon’ very loosely because we all know that God has a way of orchestrating things) a fun, informational, uplifting, and interesting podcast that had me listening to episode after episode. Adam’s Rib is a podcast that was created two years ago by two Christian women, Lindsey and Jessica. These two ladies want nothing more than to see other women walk into the full life that God has designed for them. From the moment that I heard their playful exchange, I knew that there was something special about this podcast. In the 20 to 30 minutes that I spent listening to my first episode, I felt like I had just left a fun outing with my girlfriends. Make no mistake, the conversational style of […]

Achieving Life Balance God’s Way

life balance

Life is like a box of chocolates. Most days it’s a myriad of wonderful surprises and exciting opportunities just waiting to be consumed. Other days, life is like a box of chocolates that has somehow fallen over and it’s up to us to figure out how to separate the truffles from the coconut-filled and the strawberry cremes. Forrest Gump clearly left that part out. On this earth, life is a never-ending balancing act. We have to master the art of taking on just enough responsibility, maintaining a Christ-centered focus, taking care of our health, and serving others— and that’s not even the half of it. No question about it, the secret to a healthy and happy life lies in finding the right balance. As a girl that wears several hats, finding the perfect balance is a struggle that I know all too well. About a week ago, I started feeling […]

The Virtuous Woman Pt. 5 | She Takes Care Of Home

Virtuous Woman Trustworthy

Proverbs 31: 21-22 & 27 “When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. She makes coverings for her bed;     she is clothed in fine linen and purple.”  “She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.” Let’s be real for a moment—adulting is hard. No one really likes bills, errands, or folding laundry but they are all necessary annoyances that need to be taken care of to ensure that the wheel of life keeps moving. Can you imagine what life would be like if you had no clean laundry, no clean dishes, and you were facing a repossession of your car because you failed to make your payments? It would be difficult, to say the least. The Proverbs 31 woman knew this and she took pride in taking care of the affairs of her home. Take […]

3 Things Happy Christians Do Differently

Happy Christians

I know some of you are looking at the title of this post and thinking shouldn’t all Christians be happy? Maybe the short answer should be yes but we all know that life is never that simple. A lot of the time, the biggest difference between a happy person and a not-so-happy person is the way that they respond to the complications of life. The difference between a happy Christian and a not-so-happy Christian lies in the way that they apply the word of God to their life. God has given us all the tools that we need to enjoy a joyful life but it is completely up to us to put them to use. Joy is a fruit of the Spirit that comes along with serving an amazing, living God and anyone that has tapped into this gift knows that there are a few things that you need to […]
