Pried and Prejudiced

Today I want to share with you a talk I did about a year ago at a local women’s retreat. It covers portions of my story as well as some spiritual growth lessons that … source

Learning to Trust and Obey

“But what are YOU doing??” Ayah often peppers me with this question as she completely forgets the task at hand. But even as I become frustrated with her, I begin to see myself in her actions. Isn’t that the same way I sometimes behave toward God, neglecting His instructions while insisting on knowing the bigger […]

Wrestling with Work-Life Balance

It’s exciting to watch this ministry expand, especially since joining Instagram. As I wrestle with both the desire to provide content and the desire to balance personal life, I realize that it comes down to this: when I focus on loving God and seeking Him first, I can trust that He will provide exactly what […]

God Can Use Every Story

Where Material Possessions Fall Short

Many of us in the U.S. have so much that we become trapped by a false sense of self-sufficiency. In this video, I share about some of my heroes in the faith: people who turned to Jesus in situations of desperate need and found in Him more strength and satisfaction than they ever had with […]
