Fallen World “Beauty”: God + Love is Greater Than Sweatpants

Love isn't about the way a person looks, it's about the connection you have with someone's heart. It's the butterflies you get in your stomach when you know you're going to see them; it's the comfort their presence brings you, without them saying anything. It's knowing that you don't have to doll yourself up all the time to impress them, because they're impressed with the way God created you. They don't love you because of the adornments you use to be fashionable or beautiful for a materialistic world.

How the Military Life Strengthened My Faith in God

The second time he deployed, our eldest was a toddler, and that changed everything. His absence was no longer only affecting me, but was affecting a little girl who didn't understand why her daddy wasn't home to tuck her in.

That Time As A Teen When I Was A Perfect Parent

When I was still a perfect parent--living under my parents' roof, wearing clothes they bought for me, talking on the phone (a landline!) they paid for; I swore I would never treat my children the way my parents treated me. I wouldn't keep my children from doing what they wanted, make them do chores, or tell them no. I would be different. I'd understand them, and treat them with "respect".

How Patience Helps Us Grow

It's such a wonderful feeling to know how much God loves us, even when we aren't patient. The Bible is always here to help; to remind us to rejoice even when we're struggling, because we have the Holy Spirit, and it continually fills us with His love.

Joy During the Darkness

God created all of us, and our job is to share His gospel with others. This doesn't mean we're supposed to browbeat unbelievers or malign their name. Our world is currupt enough without turning our faith into a tool of corruption. When we do that, when we use Jesus as a way to bully others, we aren't doing His works, we're doing Satan's.
