Learning to hand over the day…

Learning to hand over the day...

Being able to work for myself is a blessing. And sometimes a curse. What I struggle with most is truly setting down the work. Switching my brain off at the end of the day to focus on my family. Letting rest and peace and quiet fall. My brain races. Ideas pop, deadlines flash, iPhone beckons. […]

What Would Jesus Undo? Celiac Disease

This is a hard post to write. Not because the subject is difficult, but because celiac disease is literally attacking my brain right now. Microscopic amounts of gluten have slipped into my system twice (I think) in the past two weeks, and my brain is having a hard time processing words. It’s having an even […]

What I’m not giving up for lent

What I

I’m pretty new to the whole idea of Lent. Growing up I remember hearing my catholic friends talk about it a little, but I didn’t understand it. The first time I saw someone with ashes on their forehead in college, I politely told them they had dirt on their face and might want to wash […]

One simple step to help end slavery

By the end of today, tens of thousands of people will post a photo of a red X on their hand to raise awareness for the End It Movement. It’s easy to dismiss something so simple (psh, what is a red X on your hand going to do to end slavery?), but awareness is no […]

Overwhelmed by humility and grace - thoughts on the IF:Gathering #ifgathering

It’s easy to become cynical and jaded when leaders and celebrities disappoint us time and time again. When your spiritual leader is leading a double life of lies and affairs. When your favorite celebrity turns out to be a jerk behind closed doors. When every time the curtain is pulled back, reality is not what […]

IF:Gathering

A few days ago I wrote about my hopes for the IF:Gathering. While I didn’t know what to expect as far as schedule, content, or anything else really, I had high hopes for the purpose of this gathering. I sit here tonight with mascara-stained cheeks inspired, humbled, challenged, filled up, and happily wiped out. I […]

My hopes for the IF:Gathering

Hopes for the IF:Gathering

I’m traveling to Austin tomorrow for something called the IF:Gathering. A generation of women gathering together to ask the question, “If God is real, then what?” There has been something stirring in me for a few years now, and it all revolves around that important question. To be honest, I’m tired of comfortable Christianity. I’m […]

How to Live Intentionally in a Chaotic World (and a giveaway!)

Notes from a Blue Bike by Tsh Oxenreider

Last night I couldn’t sleep. Tossing and turning, I just couldn’t seem to release the stress of the day. This morning I realized why – my work life and home life have no definable boundaries. Admittedly, yesterday was a catch-up day after being out of town, but it pointed out an underlying tension. As much […]
