From “Who” to “Do:” A Devotional on Kingdom Callings

Today’s devotional was written by the beautiful Meghan Campbell! I’m re-reading the gospels right now. I do this often because it not only makes me feel closer and closer to understanding Jesus in a more intimate way, but I literally find something new EVERY single time I read. It’s amazing how the Bible does that.

Self-consciously I thought to myself, “If this is how Women’s Health Magazine defines ‘healthy,’ then I must be far from it.” A rush of

Don’t believe everything that you think: A devotional on taking your thoughts captive

It’s 3 am, and I have yet to fall asleep. I’m on a work trip with my husband and, I’m not sure about you, but I can never seem to find great rest when I’m not in my own bed. The quad espresso that I had earlier in the day probably had something to do

To the girl who feels stuck: a devotional on getting free

I have been in a season of “stuck” lately. Not necessarily in a literal sense, but I just feel like my mind and my heart are stuck. I wouldn’t fully classify it as depression, but more that I am in a season of feeling discouraged, and though there are days and moments of light, I

To The Girl With An Anxious Heart

This morning, I woke up with a cloud of anxiety and sadness looming over me. In an attempt to shake it off, I tried with all my might to not give it any attention. I worked out, and went to fill up my water bottle when it dropped on the floor and broke in half!

How to be radiantly beautiful each and every day

Note: This isn’t just another cliche and stereotypical “you are beautiful” post. I’ll never forget when the doctor hit me with the news. I’d have to live the rest of my life with an ileostomy bag on my stomach. There’s really nothing quite like the news that your physical body is going to be permanently
