The Real Reason I Write

We all struggle to find our identity in Christ alone. We all want to find our value in something we achieve, and we want others to notice our achievements. But Christ notices us—even without our achievements.

Dear Homeschooler

Homeschooler, if you ever think you’re weird or even abnormal for being homeschooled, stop. You’re not. You’re just different. And different can be a good thing.

Hello, Change: How We Can Welcome Change with Open Arms

In reality, it doesn’t matter what major I pick. It doesn’t matter whether I take 19 credits or 12 credits. It doesn’t matter whether I have 20 friends or 5 friends. It simply matters that I seek Christ. Above a college degree. Above a well-paying job. Above a lot of blog followers. Above a book contract. Above a certain number of friends.

And then I began to realize the truth of the matter.

You Don’t Have To Be Superman To Be Courageous

Courage is more common than we think. Every single day, we are faced with opportunities to be strong and courageous…or to fearfully back down. I often choose to fearfully back down. I could try to complicate the reasons why I do this, or I could admit that I’m simply terrified and unwilling to trust my Savior.
