  • A Generous Investment

    As those living in a capitalist society whose DNA is composed of rugged individualism, we often feel justified in consuming more than we invest. Our planet groans with pain due to our rate of consumption. According to one estimate reported by Washington State University, Americans constitute 5% of the world’s population but consume 24% of the […]

  • The Measure of Our Worth

    We live in a world that is obsessed with quantitative success. If we can measure it as success then it is deemed successful. From the number of dollars in our bank accounts to the number of followers we have on social media platforms, society depends on numbers to determine worth. What happens when the numbers […]

  • The Gift of Gratitude

    Sheila could not believe her misfortune. It was the day before her 40th birthday and she’d just lost her job. When she arrived at work that morning, before she even got to her desk, her boss called her into the large conference room. It was an unexpected meeting on a Friday. Sheila thought it was […]

  • God Is Always Here

    Last week, I had one of those days that only God could have crafted. I started the day as I normally do, pressing snooze on my alarm repeatedly until I accepted that I had to start my day. Nothing about the morning indicated that I would have a special day. Nothing on my calendar indicated […]

    About two years ago, someone whom I had grown to trust, hurt me. It had taken me quite some time to trust this person and not long after I let my guard down, I felt the heavy blow of an emotional sucker punch. The person even tried to justify the behavior and cause me to […]

  • Experiencing God

    In December 2019, our entire world changed. By March of 2020, we were isolated or quarantined as the Covid-19 pandemic began its rapid spread across the globe. For Christians, the thing that was most impacted was church attendance. We were not prepared for the sudden shift and many of our churches struggled in the beginning. […]

  • A Transformative Invitation

    One of the most dreaded dates of the year is April 15. Every year, we are reminded that our money is not our own and that a lot of it belongs to Uncle Sam. While we may not like it when Uncle Sam takes our hard earn money, we don’t consider everyone who works for […]

  • No Sheroes Allowed

    One of my sister-friends and I come from two different backgrounds. Our lives are different in many ways. She is a wife and mother. I am a single woman with no children. She is from the North, and I am from the South. She is an extrovert, and I am an introvert. While we are […]

  • A Time for Rest

    In this country, we don’t see rest as a valuable commodity. Something must happen to get us to slow down and take a moment to breathe. Even during this pandemic, while we were being forced to rest, we still were thinking of ways to get back out there in the world doing what we normally […]
