Screen Shot 2014-02-03 at 10.24.33 PM

I hate running. In fact, my friend Mickey had to call me this morning to get me out of bed so that I would go to the gym. Why did she call me before 6 a.m. to go to the gym? She somehow convinced me to train with her for the Nashville Country Music Half Marathon in April. No big deal. Excuse me, WHAT?! I’ve lost my mind. We both have. We’re not runners. I probably should have … [Read more...]

Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

Others of us weren't alive yet to remember, so we rely on the stories and accounts of others. Here's a great article from former NFL football coach, Tony Dungy, with his thoughts on remembering Martin Luther King, Jr. … [Read more...]

A Look Back at the Forum

panel

If you've ever coordinated an event, hosted a party, or planned a wedding, you understand how much work goes into an event like the Women's Forum. We plan, prepare, delegate, put everything into it, and we pray. I stood back amazed at the end of the Forum at how God answered specific prayers. He brought generations of women together under one roof, for one Name, and for one purpose. Goodness, God … [Read more...]

Showing Mercy: One Woman’s Story of Hope, Healing, and Ministry

IMG_1072

I didn’t understand poverty until I saw it and smelled it for myself in Nairobi, Kenya almost three years ago. I met Maureen Owino in 2010, and we served on a camp staff with Student Life together. Maureen grew up in extreme poverty in Kenya and has a powerful story of how God can use an ordinary girl to do extraordinary things. She now serves as the co-founder and Executive Director of … [Read more...]

Free Friday: Believing God

Screen Shot 2013-10-04 at 10.53.58 AM

Before starting the Believing God study, I read the book and was blown away. How many times have I limited God because I was too afraid to believe him? Do I just believe in God or do I truly believe him? I’ve actually done the … [Read more...]
