On Twenty-Five Years

Today is my twenty-fifth birthday. I have officially lived for a quarter of century. I know, right?? Twenty-five years feels like forever and nothing at all at the same time. Like I've lived forever and for no time at all. I am still at the point in my life where the majority of my time … Continue reading On Twenty-Five Years

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 Singleness: A Submission Follow-Up

I have been talking quite a bit recently about submission, being a godly wife, biblical marriage, and the dangers of purity culture. I have spent a lot of time on these issues as they relate to married women. But in doing so, I must also recognize that not all women will marry and that not … Continue reading On Singleness: A Submission Follow-Up

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

Legalists, Liberals, and Mark 7

Have you ever been accused of being a Pharisee? I have. Well, sort of. There's no way I'd be able to find the Twitter conversation now (I tend to not bookmark or screenshot these things), but in a debate a few months ago (I know, I know, breaking my own rule), my unwavering stance on … Continue reading Legalists, Liberals, and Mark 7

Why the Gospel Matters

I've been talking a lot recently about making sure you have good theology, why obedience to God matters, and more. I have even more theology and real life related posts coming, including a two-parter on submission (it's really truly coming I promise!!). But before I move forward, I want to take a step or two … Continue reading Why the Gospel Matters

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
