I know this: Love is still there in the middle of our every bad decision and wrong turn, looking upon us with no judgement, holding us despite our own disbelief.

The Difference Between Knowing and Believing
I am discovering that knowing and believing are two separate things. Knowing comes from within. It's the truth residing in your own flesh and bones. Believing is an act of your conscious mind. It is a mental choice, influenced by endless external factors. When your knowing and believing are not in alignment, you will experience … Continue reading The Difference Between Knowing and Believing
Burning the Past
"I should burn all my old journals." I only wish I could backtrack and remember what thoughts led to this one. The thought swelled so large and overtook my brain that all other thoughts were totally swallowed up and forgotten. Perhaps it was one of those rare moments of divine interruption, when the guidance you … Continue reading Burning the Past
Beloved Children of God
Your belief in Jesus does not save you. Jesus saves you. Not your belief. Salvation is not a product of your mind. Your ability to believe or not believe (or struggle to believe) in the power or person of Jesus has no bearing on your salvation. I can refuse to believe in the sun.

I have crazy anxiety that leaves me terrified to be left alone. What you don't see is my inner landscape. Despite the anxiety, I'm more … Continue reading Love in the mess
When God is only portrayed as masculine…
For too long, Christianity as a whole has ignored, belittled, and even outright suppressed the feminine. I've witnessed first-hand the dysfunction that such imbalance creates within individuals and families. When we portray God using only masculine terms, it's natural for women to think that godliness is more of a masculine virtue. Instead of embracing our … Continue reading When God is only portrayed as masculine…
Mother God: Exploring the Divine Feminine
Most Christians are taught and believe that God has no gender. God is God, transcending humanity. And yet, God created us in His own image, male and female He created us. So God is both genderless but also contains both masculinity and femininity. It is a divine mystery. While we believe that we can't really … Continue reading Mother God: Exploring the Divine Feminine
