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 […]

How Ayah's Compassion Brought Me Hope

A recent period of unexplained anxiety had me so weighed down that the only thing I could do was say “Jesus, help”. God provided me with a message of hope during that time, using my four-year-old daughter to remind me that I am seen and cared for exactly where I am.

Icons or Immanuel?

The flurry of activity during the Christmas season often leaves little time for self-reflection. But perhaps taking a moment to examine our actions is more crucial than we thought: what we are ACTUALLY celebrating, and who does that imply that we are ACTUALLY serving?

God's Innumerable Thoughts Toward Us

Last week was rough, battling both a stomach virus and feelings of inadequacy.

God Can Use Every Story

Growing up in a conservative Christian, homeschooled, and relatively sheltered household, I sometimes questioned the worth of my salvation testimony. My conversion didn’t seem radical enough! I’ve since realized that every story is invaluable — not because of who we were, but because of who God is.
