Love: A Sacrifice Worth Making?

Last time, we spoke of love being an escape from the gray areas of the bible. It was hard for me to contain myself in that particular post and not jump into this kind of application area of life. But I held off (I hope enough) because sometimes application shouldn’t be sandwiched in at the…

Love: An Escape From the Gray Areas

Brace yourself, this isn’t some metaphor for how love makes everything red hot or how you see the world in rose colored lenses. This is probably my most convicting thought on love.

If any of you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that to start off this year I wanted to study love. This is the year I am getting married and I figure when better than now to train myself to love? I am armed with my books and my initial thoughts, but I…

Perfect Connection

Do you ever have a moment when two things just connect perfectly? Today I am on Day Eighteen of my hundred days to brave and today is also the first day of 2018. This Christmas my dad purchased yearly prayer journals for my mother and me, and today the year begins. This day was about prayer…
