Are You Nice To You?

See also: Propel Women What have you told yourself about who you are today? I don’t know about you, but when I pause to think about what I “speak” over myself on a regular basis, I cringe at the harshness.

Caller ID: Unknown Number

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5 The phone rings.

If My Life Story Isn’t Dramatic, Is It Still Important?

I suppose I do have a pretty dramatic story for a 25 year-old. A lot of people are surprised by it, others have an oh-now-it-makes-sense reaction (that sometimes escapes their mind in awkward word vomit).

8 Things We Need To Know About Loving Jesus

If God Can Do The Impossible, Why Is This Happening?

“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 The Bible tells us that with God all things are possible. But what about when the impossible doesn’t happen? What does it mean when the cancer remains uncured, the relationship remains broken or the addiction takes over again? I can tell you…… Continue reading If God Can Do The Impossible, Why Is This Happening?
