Each "Making You New" necklace is made out of shed deer antlers. All are unique, like us. All are a representation of how God creates and transforms... just like us.

By God’s grace, we can shed our “antlers" too. Whether it's our past mistakes, present burdens or those unspeakable things we wish we could just move on from ... God sees. He knows. He loves you, and He is working to make all...

When we humbly admit our need for change and invite Christ to renew our minds — one thought at a time — we are blessed with the ability to enjoy life, despite its challenges.

Although it might seem difficult at first, it is possible to change the way we think.

Each time we notice our minds are wandering to a place where discouragement, sadness, fear, anger or negativity reside, we have the...

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” Romans 12:2a (NLT) My thoughts were running rampant, and I knew it. The room was pitch black except for a trickle of moonlight peeking through the window blinds. It was the

A grocery store in our town just began offering online ordering and pickup.
Y’all, we live in a magical time!
I joked with a girlfriend of mine that I am so glad I was born in this generation!
God put you and me in this time in history for more than just the conveniences of online shopping. We have a purpose, but most of us think what we are doing doesn’t really make a difference. Feeding...

I long to be a woman who follows hard after Jesus. And I’m not talking about a plastic Christian life full of religious checklists and pretense. No, that would be hypocritical at best and deadening at worst.
I want the kind of soul-satisfying closeness that can only come from daily keeping pace with Him. A rich and deep level of intimacy that frantic attempts at rule-following will never...

I’ll be honest … for years I struggled during difficult times with what to say when I prayed.

I finally found exactly what I needed. If I’m going through something hard, I can pray prayers where I don’t speak at all.

I can just sit with Jesus making no suggestions, offering no solutions. Sometimes, I have nothing but quiet tears and a heavy heart. The beautiful thing is the Bible promises...

He is making you new.

Did you know deer shed their antlers every year, causing them to grow a new set? One of the most common theories behind why they do this is to replace any damage the antlers with new stronger ones.

By God’s grace, we can shed our “antlers" too. Whether it's our past mistakes, present burdens or those unspeakable things we wish we could just move on from ... God sees....

What defines you as a woman? Is there a six-word memoir you are holding on to as your identity?

What if Jesus, our ultimate storyteller, were to write your six-word memoir? Maybe it would look something like these:

You are mine; you are enough.

You: Beautiful, cherished, seen, known, loved.

You are welcome here, beside me.

No matter how you feel from day-to-day and moment-to-moment, God...

God daily invites us to come and sit with Him in His Word. To feast on all of the truth and hope He has waiting on us.

But there are days I let guilt talk me into turning Him down. Days when I allow shame to convince me that I don’t have the right to even show up.

God isn’t keeping a spiritual scorecard to see when we deserve the right to sit in His presence and feast on His Word. His...

Before he was king, David was a giant slayer.

Did you know the giants didn’t stay defeated? Nope, years later, 2 Samuel 21 says: “Once again there was a battle between the Philistines and Israel.”

Even though David defeated Goliath, the giants came back! Can you imagine the frustration to face the same enemy again? Well, yeah, I can. And I bet you can too.

But there is good news.

Have you cried out for relief from your struggles with your work, relationships, parenting or sin?

Maybe you’re weary from waiting for the Lord to intervene. You see suffering in this world and in your life and say, “How long will you keep ignoring my struggle, Lord?"

God is sanctifying or maturing us through suffering. The good work God has begun in you, He will complete. God’s end goal is His own glory, and He is glorified when His children grow to be like Him!

So … what do we do in between the beginning of the good work and its completion? We stay present in the present.

In the in-between time there are lessons to be learned, experiences to be had and...
