How a 5k Taught Me About God and Keeping Score

Training for the 5k My husband Matt, my younger brother Josh, and I decided we would try to run a 5k in late September of this year. I eagerly began our training regimen (appropriately called, "Couch to 5K") in early August, downloaded an app to help me stick to a plan, and signed us up for the "I Love the 90’s 5k." I thought this was

Christian Guilt

I Feel GuiltyI have a confession for you - I feel guilty. I don’t remember the first time I started lathering on what I call the “Christian guilt”, but I know it goes back years. I can remember being about 10 or 11 years old and faking sick to get out of going to church because I wanted to stay home and play with my toys.

I Am the One Sheep: How Jesus and Sheep Changed the Way I View My Faith

Jesus and SheepIn Sunday school, I remember hearing the stories of Jesus and sheep. I learned about how he searches for the one sheep who goes astray, even as 99 remain within the fold - because, after all, he is the good shepherd! As I heard this story, I remember visualizing who I believed that “one” might be.Maybe it was a friend who stopped coming to

Framing, Drywall, and…God?

FramingAt work a few weeks ago, I was helping with an expansion project. The framing in one of the new rooms was complete. I looked around and immediately noticed a problem. I didn’t want to tell my boss, Kevin, what I was seeing, however. Little did I know, what was about to unfold would teach me a lot about framing AND God.You see, Kevin almost always

  • I am a yogi. Sure, I've been told I can't say that, because it isn't Christian enough. But, honestly, I think God finds us and grows our faith in unlikely places. Read more over at Where Faith Grows!

Where Can He Find Us: What Yoga Taught me About My Christianity

Yoga I am a yogi. In other words, I practice yoga. Sure, I’ve been told I can’t say this. I’ve been told I’m practicing an Eastern religion, that yoga isn’t Christian enough, that yoga “distracts me from God,” or that it may become “idol worship.” Duly noted. I am a yogi. And I love it. I find Jesus on my mat, and I don’t think that’s

65 Hours: A Learner’s Permit and Faith in the Waiting

A Learner's Permit Takes PatienceI remember staring in disbelief at the instructions that came with my learner’s permit when I was 15 years old. I had to practice driving for 65 hours? It seemed like an eternity. I was reading this information as my dad drove me home from my learner’s permit test. Luckily for me, I turned 15 several months after most of my friends. They

Waiting For the Call: Gilmore Girls and God

By |2020-03-07T15:06:43-06:00February 12th, 2018|Blog, Faith|0 Comments

Gilmore Girls and God? Wait, What?“Demand more from the Lord.”Just writing these words is uncomfortable. For the modern Christian, we demand very little of Jesus. We ask him to be present with us when we pray. We ask him to be with us when we worship, when we go to church, when we have our quiet time. We ask him to help us when things are
