The last couple of weeks have been H A R D. Situational pain spoke loud to my heart and soul for days on end. When the mind knows what the heart needs to remember, there’s a battle waged. The two aren’t in alignment and that right there is enough to keep...
God’s been repealing pride and revealing brokenness and it hurts like heck. I’ve raged. I’ve sobbed. I’ve let Him keep digging because the work He does is always good. When circumstances seem to happen to you, it’s easy to assume the other is the greatest offender. In...
Life feels unpredictable when the weathering of one season mingles with another. I’m not sure what to expect in a given day because, much like Texas winter, the morning starts chilly but by noon the air is humid and warm. My heart flip-flops and I’m not sure what to...
For the last few weeks my hubby has been asking me (repeatedly) to watch a cartoon movie with him. Y’all, this is not typical. We reserve family friendly shows for family time, but he’s been asking me to watch this one with him even when our kiddos weren’t around....

Ever find yourself struggling through life’s challenges? Maybe you’re tired and weary. Maybe fears and doubts threaten your ability to live well as a Christian.
I believe God has more peace, joy, and freedom than many of us come to know. I want this for us.

Here we’ll journey through areas of emotional health, soul care, and spiritual growth in order to cultivate a life-well lived and a soul well-nourished. Not a perfect life, but a life reliant on the One who is perfect.
While it may not be easy, it’s worth it.

In case you're not on IG/FB, I'm sharing this here too. Why? I want to meet more of you. It's an introduction, but let's not leave it w/ me. K?
Y'all! Grad school starts MONDAY!! This is me giving a big thumbs up to new adventures. I'm part terrified and part ecstatic.
I talked about this some in today's video about Speaking the Truth in Love (FB group #ACultivatedLife community & YT).
As I wrote the article for Crosswalk I kept thinking about how we distort what it means to be "for" another person in speaking truth in love. This 👇 twitter.com/TownsendCUI/st…
