Million Little Ways

A Million Little Ways

Do you desperately fear you have nothing to offer the world but secretly hope you’re wrong?

You were born to make art. You were made to live art. You might not see yourself as an artist, but you are—in so many unexpected ways. In what you create, whether poetry or pie, sculpture or sand castle, calligraphy or conversation. It’s time to uncover the shape of your soul, turn down the voice of the inner critic, and move into the world with the courage to be who you most deeply are.

Creating a life of meaning is not about finding that one great thing you were made to do, it’s about knowing the one great God you were made to glorify—in a million little ways. {read more . . .}

 

 

 

Grace for the Good GirlGrace for the Good Girl

Growing up in the church, I picked up a version of the gospel that had little to do with Jesus and a lot to do with me. I tried hard to be good but never felt good enough. And so I learned to hide. I believe women need to talk about the ways we hide, the longing to be known, the fear in the knowing. Beyond that, I believe in the life-giving power of story, in the beauty of vulnerability, and in the strength that is found in weakness.

This book is an invitation to release your tight hold on that familiar, try-hard life and lean your weight heavy into the love of Jesus. I hope in reading you will move from trying so hard to please God to discover what it might be like for you to trust him. {read more…}

 

 

 

Graceful {for young women}

This book is for the self-critic, the silent judge and for the girl who feels invisible.

It’s also for the prom queen, the athlete, the bookworm and the dreamer.

Many girls in high school are trying hard to catch up but aren’t quite sure what it is they’re chasing. It’s no wonder they have a hard time understanding God’s grace as a gift they can’t earn or be worthy of. Graceful is a much needed reminder for high school girls to stop trying to earn love and understand how to receive it instead. {read more…}
