“God never uses a person greatly until He has wounded him deeply. The privilege He offers you is greater than the price you have to pay. The privilege is greater than the price.” ~Helen Roseveare…
My dear friend,
I’m grateful that you trusted me with your secret.
Sitting across from me at the kitchen table this afternoon, you poured out your heart. When you married your high school sweetheart at 19, you never once suspected you would be in this place. Now, at 39, after twenty years of marriage, you call yourself gay.
[Christian girls today need courage to stand for true beauty and not slip into some worldly, counterfeit version of it. I share this post by Kristen Clark at Girl Defined (with her permission) to embolden and inspire young women (and women of all ages) to do just that.]
When I was in high school Bethany and I decided we wanted to do a really cool photo shoot of ourselves.
My reading list for 2018 has finally come together! There is something here for almost everyone, with no trashy content surprises (except I may need to do another list for cookbooks, health and gardening books another time)….
After posing half-naked in a recent photo shoot, Emma Watson (the star in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie) couldn’t understand why people were calling her a hypocrite.
As an outspoken self-proclaimed feminist, some people viewed Emma’s photoshoot as quite the contradiction. They were wondering how a woman could stand for “women’s equality and female respect,” while at the same time taking part in the sexual objectification of women.

Augustine is considered one of the greatest theologians of all time. Christian History magazine writes, “After Jesus and Paul, Augustine of Hippo is the most influential figure in the history of Christianity.” 
And, if the familiar adage is true, “Behind every great man is a great woman” there can be no greater example than Augustine and his mother, Monica.
But don’t take my word for it. Take Augustine’s.
