You’ve Never Seen Transformation Like This

If you’re at all like me, every time you log onto a social media platform, you’re bound to see some amazing before-and-after photos of people who have undergone an incredible transformation. It’s hard to just scroll by without scrutinizing the images. To be honest,...

Spiritual Freedom Isn’t a Free Gift

As Christians, we are the beneficiaries of so many good things from God, it’s nearly impossible to list them all. We spend a considerable amount of time in prayer and thanksgiving acknowledging that we are undeserving of them, which, of course, is true. He gives us...

Oh Hey, Anxiety. You’ve Been Unfriended.

Sometimes I think that if I write enough posts about my anxiety, I may just get somewhere with it. Well…it may actually be working, and I thought I’d let y’all in on a little technique I’ve been using to deal with it. Not too long ago, I wrote that I’ve given up...

This is Why the Hero’s Journey is Your Journey

Everybody loves a good adventure story. Think of one you know and love right now. Maybe it's Raiders of the Lost Ark or Star Wars. Or Braveheart. Huckleberry Finn. Lord of the Rings. Back to the Future. If you want to see a lively debate break out, ask a group of...

Most dictionaries will tell you that brave means "fearless" or "without fear," but for the life of me, I can't figure out why that is. I mean, how can you be brave if you're  not facing something you fear? And is there some kind of standard for bravery, or is being...
