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 […]

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 way. In every situation, we have a choice in whether or not we’re going to approach it with timid uncertainty or bold assurance. Let me start by saying this: confidence is not necessarily the absence of fear or reservations. Confidence is saying no to those thoughts or feelings that may be trying to keep you from moving forward and moving on boldly anyhow. Confidence, also […]

On A Brief Hiatus

Hi there! If you’re new to this site, welcome! If you’re a frequent flyer, welcome back. After much prayer and a ton of back and forth with myself, I’ve decided to take a brief hiatus. Feel free to search the archives, subscribe to the newsletter if you haven’t yet, and I’ll be back with new content in a few weeks. Matthew 11:18-20// Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” God bless and stay tuned! I’ll have some exciting news when I return. Love you all. XOXO

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, this wasn’t the case. I was one of those Christians that picked up the Bible whenever I felt inspired and my walk with Christ was just as fickle and inconsistent as my occasional desire to read the Word. The moment that I became inspired to make reading my Bible a priority was the moment that my life changed forever. Here are three truths about the […]

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 death and resurrection of Christ and the gift of the Holy Spirit, we were given the amazing benefits of reconnecting with the author of all things good.  Throughout the Bible, there’s this theme of harvest and produce and the central idea is always the same: when you put good in, you get good out. When we choose to allow the Holy Spirit to operate in our […]
