Bible Study and Delight

  As a child I knew that reading my Bible was something that I needed to do as a follower of Christ, but I didn’t fully understand why. I just thought it was on the nightly to-do list of every good little girl: brush your teeth, have your “quiet time” and get in the bed. more »

I am currently caught in what I like to call “The Wedding Phase” of any American girl’s life. It’s those few years right after college where the majority of your peers get married. When you are a single girl with no prospects, it feels like everyone caught the wedding bug but you. I am not more »

I spent much of my life thinking I was living okay. I was a “good” girl in the eyes of pretty much everyone. I didn’t do all of those things (drinking, drugs, sex, etc.) that many of my friends were doing. In college my life began to change. I started really studying the Bible on more »
