Book Review: Women of the Word

Reading Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin has been a long time coming. I have had this book for several years, and it has been recommended to me on countless occasions. It often gets recommended after people hear that I am a theology nerd, because they know I will love it. And all of you … Continue reading Book Review: Women of the Word

Thoughts on Andy Stanley’s Aftermath Series: A Preface

If you, like me, are active at all on the theological or church side of Twitter, you may remember that back in May, Andy Stanley (once again) went under fire for making an extremely controversial statement about the Bible. Tweets went flying left and right, quoting him as saying that Christians need to "unhitch the … Continue reading Thoughts on Andy Stanley’s Aftermath Series: A Preface

On Submission: Part One

If you are a Christian or familiar with Christianity at all, you may know that submission is a hot-button topic in the Christian world and among those who are not Christians. Numerous debates have been sparked about complementarianism vs. egalitarianism and the varying spectrum of views found in each overall category. In day-to-day conversation I … Continue reading On Submission: Part One

On Obedience

Recently, I shared blog posts on why good theology matters, and another on the dangers that result from putting righteousness before man in front of righteousness before God. Because good theology matters and because legalism is harmful, it is important to discuss obedience. I love this quote. It sums up a lot of biblical principles … Continue reading On Obedience

Why Good Theology Matters

If you've ever read or attempted to read a systematic theology, you know how overwhelming and confusing the study of theology can be. There are so many theories, ideas, systems, discussions, and debates out there and they can be difficult to wade through. It is easy to come to the conclusion that studying deep theology … Continue reading Why Good Theology Matters

What It Means To Be a Helpmeet

Last week, I published a blog post on the dangers of purity culture. I briefly touched on my experience with that culture. I also went deeper into why purity culture is so harmful and where it strays from the gospel. Today's post is kind of a follow up, but most certainly stands on its own … Continue reading What It Means To Be a Helpmeet

Dear Pro-Life Christian

Dear Pro-Life Christian, Hey there. You may be reading this and thinking, "isn't saying pro-life Christian a little redundant? Wouldn't every Christian automatically be pro-life?" That is what I once thought, too. Unfortunately, I was wrong. But that's not what this letter is about. If you are a believer and consider yourself to be pro-life, … Continue reading Dear Pro-Life Christian

Come, Let Us Adore Him

The Christmas season is one of my favorite times of year, second only to fall and Thanksgiving. I love twinkling lights, frost, snow, decorations, and Christmas movies. I love the way family gets a little bit closer when gathered around the Christmas tree. I love the Christmas plays (both in and out of church) and … Continue reading Come, Let Us Adore Him

2017 NaNoWriMo: The Conclusion

Well, that's a wrap! NaNoWriMo 2017 is over. I'm going to be as upfront as possible and say that it definitely did not go as planned. My first National Novel Writing Month was not won. I did not write 50,000 words. I even factored in what I wrote for my blog and freelancing work, and … Continue reading 2017 NaNoWriMo: The Conclusion

When Worries Overwhelm

I'm a worrier in the worst sense of the word. If you were a bug on the wall in our apartment, you would hear my husband often talking me out of wondering if our currently nonexistent children will be happy and well-adjusted or whether I'll ever be where I want to be weight-wise or if … Continue reading When Worries Overwhelm
