To The Girl Who Is Tired of Waiting

Today’s post was written with love by Carine Abraham.     Recently I begrudgingly walked into this season called waiting. I left my job and stepped away from a lot of things in preparation for this season. I am not the type of person to leave one thing without having something else coming down the

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.

To the girl who doesn’t feel beautiful: a devotional on knowing you’re enough

I looked at her toned arms, long legs, flat stomach, and flawless skin on the cover of Women’s Health Magazine, and without even thinking about it started shaming my own body. 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 Who Wishes She Had More Clarity: A Devotional on Trusting God

  Clarity. It’s been in my top 10 prayer list for what seems like forever. Clarity on where to live, clarity on my purpose, clarity on where to spend my time. I assumed God wanted me to have clarity, because “He is not the God of confusion, but of peace” (1 Corinthians 14:33). So, that

To the girl who struggles with self worth after a breakup: a breakup devotional

“I still love you,” I half-whispered, unwanted tears streaming down my face, becoming small, my own arms wrapped tightly around myself as if they knew how I yearned to be protected, to be held. There I stood, still crushed – years later – by the aftermath of that heart-rending breakup. Our unexpected collision filled my bones with false hope, I
