For the past several years it’s really been on my heart to adopt as well as have biological children. The story of adults who have been in the foster system as well as those who were adopted really resonated with me. I don’t think everyone has to or should adopt, but The Lord has definitely opened up my heart to the idea. Where do you start though? I always thought I would “find my future children” through volunteering, mentoring, or some type of community organization where I would get to know them and God would say “this is the one”. I’ve been meaning to highlight Karla Storey after seeing her fashion ministry on Instagram. Imagine my surprise when I go to her about section and she explains how her heart is for orphans, fostering, and adopting. Additionally, part of her proceeds goes towards helping them to have a better life. When you put your money where you mouth is, great things start to happen. Add Jesus to that, and all possibilities start to rise to the surface. I’m looking forward to seeing her flourish, and I thank God that there are so many out there making a difference.

I’ve been following She Paints Truth on social media for a while ever since my small group sisters told me about the awesome biblical daily encouragement they provide through art. It wasn’t until I saw a post from the founder Christie that I stopped in my tracks. Around the same time, we both posted about our walk with God and how He confirmed who our spouse was. Her story is a little different than mine, but the overall message is the same. After social media stalking her (I know I’m not the only one! Lol.), I thought it would be more than appropriate to give her a feature. I love what she’s doing in her personal testimony as well as her art platform to share the gospel. Check out her links and subscribe if you love Jesus, art, family, or all of the above. Continue reading “Promo Tuesday with She Paints Truth”

Funny Friday: Shoot Christians Say

Remember several years ago when there seemed to be a “Stuff [FILL IN THE BLANK] Say” for pretty much any type of person? Here’s the one for Christians and it’s pretty accurate. Continue reading “Funny Friday: Shoot Christians Say”

Promo Tuesday with Couples Academy

Promo Tuesdays is where we highlight our brothers and sisters who are moving through ministry and small business while spreading the gospel as the Lord leads. Please support them by checking out their website and social media.

Once in a while, my church would have an event called “The Marriage Encounter”. In a way, it was like a group couple’s therapy where married church members would come and ask questions about the ins and outs of intimacy, in-laws, raising children, infidelity, you name it. A few of those times we would have a session with Hasani and Danielle Pettiford of The Couples Academy. I always looked forward to their insight, and am so glad I can follow them online through their website and social media in order to keep getting that objective and educated advice about marriage. Even if you’re not married yet, now might be the best time to discover some great tools that will help you in the future. You may be surprised to know how the habits and relationships you have now will affect your future spouse for good…or for bad. The best part about this for me is that their advice comes from a biblical foundation because my faith is the number one aspect of my world view. I hope you are blessed by their knowledge and the information they freely give. Let me know what you think! Continue reading “Promo Tuesday with Couples Academy”

Have You Apologized?

About seven years ago, I was at a leadership retreat that my church put on, and one of the sessions I attended featured a speaker who was gifted in the area of apologetics. At the time, I had never heard of the term, and my immediate thought was “Is this when a Christian apologizes to people who have been hurt by the church?” No. By definition, apologetics is reasoned arguments or writings in justification of something, typically a theory or religious doctrine. In Christianity it means that you explain to others why your religion is real and true using science, accurate Bible knowledge, historical evidence, etc.

Them Good Old Days

This article was originally written in December of 2013 for my personal blog. Thank you for reading!

 

People often say phrases like, “Those were the good old days.” or “They just don’t make them like they used to.” or “No one produces good music anymore.” I find this HIGHLY generalized and untrue. This way of thinking is supposed to give you warm gushy feelings about sock hops and soda shops, but to me it’s very depressing to think that the world is going in a downward spiral. What’s the use of living when life is getting worse?

Every once in a while, my husband and I will go to an unpopulated scenic spot to enjoy a little peace and quiet you don’t normally get in the city. It’s refreshing to look into the horizon and catch a glimpse of perfection. God’s earth. A great big thing He created for us to enjoy. Just because global warming, recession, and blah blah blah is in full effect, that doesn’t mean we aren’t supposed to appreciate what we still have. Continue reading “Them Good Old Days”
