Heart Over Hashtags

We recently had the opportunity to attend the Spark Media Conference and Awards in Nashville, Tennessee. While there, one of the speakers was talking about how you should be more concerned about having your heart right and working for the Kingdom of God vs. focusing on who is following you on social media. On ourContinue reading “Heart Over Hashtags”

A Beauitful Gift

This is a little different from our normal content, but we wanted to take this opportunity to talk about something that has touched all of our lives here at Come to the Table….adoption.  November is National Adoption Month and I wanted to use this blessing of this platform and talk about adoption for a moment. Continue reading “A Beauitful Gift”

Being a Light in a Dark World

After listening to “Right vs. Righteous” again, I got to thinking about all of the things that I did and was a part of that I felt was right but was I really doing what was righteous in the eyes of God. God lead me to Mathew 5:14-16. In Christian circles, we constantly hear “beContinue reading “Being a Light in a Dark World”

Grit Doesn’t Replace Boundaries

I’ve written before about my upbringing. Growing up in Wyoming, in a hard working family and having strong women to look up to, it is really easy for me to live by “pull up your big girl panties and deal with it.” Over the years, I have become the queen of just powering through. IContinue reading “Grit Doesn’t Replace Boundaries”

A True Relationship With Christ Isn’t Cliché

In a world where it is so easy to create an unrealistic, picture perfect image of yourself – especially online – it can be tempting to apply that to our Christian walk as well. We like the pretty, shiny side of Christianity. We like that we are washed clean. We like the postable moments thatContinue reading “A True Relationship With Christ Isn’t Cliché”

Cheating Salvation

In this month’s episode, “Religion vs Relationship” I shared my story of how I grew up in church. I shared how I was told that our confirmation classes were intended to confirm both that we were saved and our intentions to be members of the church. Part of that process was being able to writeContinue reading “Cheating Salvation”

You Never Know What Someone is Going Through

When I was a little kid, I spent a lot of time with my Granny. I would spend the night at her house, run errands with her and help her at work. One thing that always struck me was just how kind and thoughtful she was to everyone around her. Back in those days, ourContinue reading “You Never Know What Someone is Going Through”

Moving Past “All About Me”

It is SO easy to make things “all about me.” Especially in today’s world.  We are being bombarded with messages that it is all about us, we should all be doing what is best for us and we should never have to be in difficult situations. After the depression, wars and the baby boom, parentsContinue reading “Moving Past “All About Me””

Confidence is a Funny Thing

Confidence is a funny thing. If you’re quiet, shy or timid, you are told to have more confidence. If you’re loud, bold or determined, you’re told you’re prideful. We tend to label someone as cocky or shy based off of how much they talk. We’ve confused confidence with being outspoken. I have never been accusedContinue reading “Confidence is a Funny Thing”
