Brought to the end of my timeframe and expectations, I had no choice but to look up. And once I looked up to the Lord, He encouraged me to look in… to evaluate if I was the kind of girl who even deserved to have a boyfriend.
This is the first of two parts in which Lisa and I tackle some common conservative narratives about gender that aren’t actually in the Bible. It’s been a hard journey for me – learning to question some of these concepts and dig down to where they are rooted in Scripture (if at all).
Can a wife correct her husband? Some would be surprised at this question, but it's legitimately asked in many conservative Christian circles. Proverbs 17 says "As iron sharpens iron, so one friend sharpens another." This does not stop in marriage. This week on...
I grew up in the northern Midwest United States, about two hours south of Canada. Because I was northern, raised in a Christian home, and believe “all men are created equal”, I firmly believed racial prejudice did not exist in my life or even in my geographical area.

It's telling that I'm posting April's favorites list in May. May 1st was the launch of my new biblical time management course - Driven Women - so every effort at getting a post published came to naught! Better late than never, right? I have so much to share from...

For three years now I’ve used Lara Casey’s Powersheets, a goal planning workbook designed to help people of ALL personalities determine God’s priorities for their lives. Through a detailed preparation process, you determine your goals for the year, then break those goals down into monthly, weekly, and daily tasks.
