Sisters, I'm so RIDICULOUSLY excited. I've got some awesome plans for the next few months. I'm going to be recording Sisters for Real podcasts and releasing them every week. Of course, before I can do that I have to learn how to record and post a podcast - since I have NO idea how to do that. But hey! How hard can it be? (Dying a little on the insi...
My dear Sisters for Real,
I've been quiet for quite some time now. People have been asking me why I haven't been blogging or writing. "I haven't heard from you in so long!"
I could blame it on being busy, but that would be less than the truth. The honest answer is that I've been losing hope, and without hope, I languish. My creativity...
Our local Sisters For Real Bible Study has just started the book of Romans. Which is pretty adventurous for us, since prior to now, we've only tackled books with 5 or less chapters. Romans, with its 16 chapters, seems long and daunting to study in depth. But we rolled up our sleeves, opened our various translations, and dug in.We got stuck on the v...
I had a brief and unexpected conversation today with a wonderful "sister" I just recently met. She was being real (LOVE IT!) and opening her heart about a newfound joy in her life. While she was talking, she was moved to tears several times. I was honored to have stumbled upon her at such an emotional moment, and the beauty of it has left...

When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and b...

Rachel Held Evans, author of "A Year of Biblical Womanhood", is my new favorite person. She is funny, witty, clever, articulate, bold, loving, thoughtful, caring, intelligent, and I'm pretty sure we own the same necklace (see above photo), which I think makes us soul-sisters.
I recently wrote her a letter, and wanted to share it with my...
My father-in-law shared this past week at our church, and the title of his sermon was Punctuation Matters. He explained how we misread and misinterpret scripture by taking it out of context, or partially quoting it. It was a fun take on a serious topic. We regularly misunderstand what God is saying by taking His words out of their correct sett...
There are some morning that I wake up and it seems, before my head ever leaves the pillow or my feet even touch the floor, that my flesh is a roaring lion and my spirit is a meek little mouse. Today is one of those days.This morning old battles, that I thought were long won, have risen up to be fought again. Loneliness. Jealously. Insecurity. Blata...
"The measure you use for others is the one that God will use for you." Luke 6:38Tonight, I am tired. Right down to my core. I have many more hours of work to do ahead of me, and I am already craving sleep. I am not my kindest or gentlest self when I am under this kind of stress and pressure, with this long of a To-Do list.And just as I was finished...
