Quit Hiding Your Crazy

This past weekend I attended a Lifeway Women’s event called dotMom for the third time. It was awesome. It always has been, and we always leave feeling refreshed. On the way home, our leader/van driver asked us to all share our favorite part of the weekend. Just like others, I had several defining moments. Yet what honestly helped me the most was…

It was just the right size with just the right amount of icing. The cake was a beautiful red velvet with buttercream icing, and all…

Saving Lives in Tuscaloosa

While many women look forward to celebrating Mother’s Day with their children and many soon-to-be moms anticipate holding their babies in the coming months, not all women are excited about motherhood. Some are scared, alone, and wondering how they can raise a child. Enter Sav-A-Life, a non-profit organization committed to helping women in crisis pregnancies. Ironically located next to the…

Because I Honor Him . . .

It was the usual devotional snapshot circulating around Facebook. I sometimes share them too (minus the “type Amen” or “share if you love Jesus” disclaimers). But something about this one caught my eye, and it happens to say a lot about how a lot of Christians think. I don’t know who shared this image for the first time or who…
