Abide in Me

Sitting in the sunniest spot I could find in the woods, I read these two verses over and over. “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the […]

What Mask Are You Wearing?

I’m so thankful for my husband! I love his heart and his passion for truth & grace. Since last Thursday, he’s decided to make a short “nugget of truth”. (One of many “Jeffisms!” Or you could say it’s simply part of his “Jeff-ness” according to “You, Me & Dupree”. Love!) His hope is that it’d […]

Burden Rollers

Sometimes life can seem so heavy. The burdens we carry seem so big. Whether it’s small things that add up, or big issues that weigh us down. In the mundane, or the unordinary. I vividly remember spring of 2011- I was healing from a difficult break up, while at the same time starting to rekindle […]

Hope in Trials

Trials. As my youth pastor said, “If you’re not in one right now, then you just finished one, or there is one on its way.” Not to be a downer! (Happy Friday!) But it’s true. As believers, God didn’t say he’d protect us from trials, but rather he said they would come. However, God doesn’t […]

Peace, beloved.

Have you ever had one of those days (or seasons) where you just are stressed out? Overwhelmed? Fearful? Anxious? Unfortunately I’ve had many seasons like that. The other day I was feeling these exact things. Nothing huge was happening, just all of these little things were piling one on top of one another. I felt […]

Put off. Put on.

As I was walking through the healing process with my eating disorder, a huge factor was transforming my thoughts. See our minds are a battlefield, and we have to constantly be on guard- to take every thought captive to Christ. (2 Cor. 10:5) It’s so easy to think a thought, and then dwell there- to […]

Prisoner No More

I’m so glad you are joining me on this journey to grow and put off eating disorders beloved. This topic is dear to my heart, seeing as I struggled with it for years, and still to this day I have to fight to believe God’s truth. If I’m honest, I’ll tell you that it’s a […]

Freedom Found in Christ

Thank you to all of you who have contacted me wanting to learn more about how to fight eating disorders. As one who struggled for almost 6 years, I empathize with you and know the pain, fear, and bondage you may feel. If you find yourself in that struggle today, you are not alone. But […]

Trembling to Trust

Sitting around the dining room table, all of us interns were facing one another, sharing some of our deepest dreams. The question had been asked, “If you could do anything, what would you do? No, really, what would you do?” A smile came to my lips. My heart fluttered a bit. It was so easy. […]
