And So She Created God in Her Own Image…

  I lost my loud in Nashville. I lost my rush and I lost my sure and I lost my loud. There is so much good in that. I found my listen and I found my slow andI found my doubt and those are good and hard things. But for 5 years, I lost some […]

Women of Lent: Do Whatever He Tells You

During advent, I wrote a popular series on my old blog called “Women of Advent” about the women who waited with expectation for the promised Messiah, the women who inhabited the meaning of advent. Someone recently suggested that I do a similar series for the next-most-popular season in the church calendar, Lent. I’ve been doing […]

Good To Me

Last year I lived in a little duplex in South Nashville with a beautiful roommate and a cuddly fat cat. I started to learn how to be a grown-up in that house (although today I told a third grader that one of the best things about being a grown-up is sometimes having popcorn and ice […]

Unchanged.

Lately I feel like I haven’t been intentionally living my life to honor [God]– I’ve just been doing whatever I want and hoping it doesn’t happen to dishonor Him. I choose to make idols, not just of wicked things but of good things, too. Sometimes I choose everything but Him. But this is what I know […]

Travelin’ Tuesdays: Is the Lord Among Us or Not?

In trying to process my current traveling/living abroad situation, I’ve noticed how very often God leads people out of what’s familiar and comfortable in the Bible. People travel around a lot in Bible stories, in both the Old and New Testaments, and these stories have been encouraging and convicting in both my literal travels this […]

Travelin’ Tuesdays- Not Knowing Where He Was Going

In trying to process my current traveling/living abroad situation, I’ve noticed how very often God leads people out of what’s familiar and comfortable in the Bible. People travel around a lot in Bible stories, in both the Old and New Testaments, and these stories have been encouraging and convicting in both my literal travels this […]

Learning to Pray.

A few years ago, a band I liked sent out an email to all of the fans on their email lists asking for submissions of videos of places where we hoped the light of Christ would shine through us. They mailed out little white candles that were supposed to be featured in the video that […]

What is this?

I would have made a great Ancient Israelite. Seriously. I am an expert at forgetting how God has provided for me in the past. I’m even worse at taking what He has done and seeing how it applies to what I’m facing now. And then sometimes God provides and I look at it and I […]

A New Language

I’ve been studying Genesis, lately, both with my students and on my own. It’s all quite familiar, really, and easy to skim through. Recently, however, when I read Genesis 3, I noticed something that God said. Adam told God that he was naked and God said, “Who told you you were naked?” God was essentially […]

Why “The Inspired Story”?

I’ve always been a big non-fiction fan. There’s something magical about hearing or reading or watching a story and knowing that this really happened somewhere, that someone really lived something like this. That it is possible and it did happen. Movies are often based loosely on true stories, and the truer of those will say something in the tag […]
