I look at the clock again. How is it that time already? Where have the last 45 minutes gone? I’m scrambling to finish the task I am doing, one of about a thousand that requires me to do it, my hands and my feet, and not anyone else. My pace quickens as I throw inContinue reading “A Writer’s Campaign: Laundry, Essays, and Pressing On Toward the Goal”
Was I making the right decision? Why would God tell me to quit a job that I loved? What about my career path? Or finances? What would my colleagues think?
I’ll spare you the “2020 amiright?” jokes because we all know this has already been one strange and difficult year so far. As I recently mentioned on the blog (after a month-long writing sabbatical), I’ve personally been in a season of quiet. This is not an unusual pattern for me. When a Super Busy Life Season™ is happeningContinue reading “Advocacy, Amos, and the Quiet Life”
As crazy as this sounds, I’ve been blogging for FOUR YEARS. Whatttt?!!

For example, I attended a theology class yesterday for my undergradContinue reading “/new”
Today was hard. But “hard” (difficult/challenging/whatever word choice fits) is completely relative right now, isn’t it?
In his book, Teaching for Spiritual Growth, Dr. Perry Downs writes,
When I decided to go back to school in my 30’s, I was (blissfully) unaware of how hard it would be…how the crunch of learning how to learn again would feel a lot like getting back on the treadmill after being out of shape for years. But just like we get pumped at the start ofContinue reading “Called to Belong: A Look at Romans 1”
I’ve noticed a few comments here and there recently about how it’s really hard to have friendships in your 30’s. I feel the pain in this sentiment because yes, I’m squarely in my mid-thirties and yes, it can be hard to have friendships during this season.
