Priorities

When I first became a Christian in 2010, I spent a lot of time pursuing Jesus. Not only did I spend my time in the Word trying to get to know this God who had radically changed my life, but I constantly prayed (in the car, while brushing my teeth, walking from point A to B, […]

Why is God So Patient With Us?

One minute we’re thankful, the next minute we’re complaining. One minute we’re kind to others, the next minute we hurry past someone in need. One minute we surrender all to God, the next minute we’re seeking control of our lives. My salvation is an absolute testimony of this. I spent the first 19-years of my […]

The Geology of Our Hearts

“Why must holy places be dark places?” C.S. Lewis’ “Til We Have Faces” Let’s start here: I consider myself to be a fairly self-aware individual. I can tell you my five values I use as a framework for decision making in my daily life. I can tell you my strengths and shortcomings, virtues and sin […]

Producing Real Fruit

This past week I woke up right away thinking about all the things I needed to do. I felt so overwhelmed that I was becoming unmotivated. Yet I was also feeling the urgency to get it all done and a wave of motivation hit again. Moments after, I was feeling the anxiety again because I […]

Is your heart out of alignment?

When it comes to our walk with God, I like to think of us as cars. I wish we were like the smart self-driving cars, but that’s just giving us a little too much credit. No, we are more like the cars that are just a little out of alignment (and sometimes really out of […]

In the Beginnings

As I begin my inaugural blog post for the All the More faithful, so many thoughts run through my head before I feel equipped to begin. Should I type my words out, or write a draft in my journal for a sort of over-romanticized authenticity? When this is posted should I share it, or is […]

The Impossible Life

One of the privileges I have in my job is to come alongside college freshman women who are interested in exploring spirituality/their beliefs and those who are desiring to take their next steps with God. A couple weeks ago one girl asked the group, “Does it seem hard to anyone else to live out all […]

What do I know of Holy?

“Nothing is sacred.”  It’s a phrase often used to convey horror at the lack of respect bestowed upon a subject that had previously been designated off limits.  These things range from religious symbols and objects of moral value (think, sanctity of human life) to even the more general things that, if violated, would cause a […]

I will speak I will proclaim

In just a year, my one-year old has changed and grown drastically. I’ve never seen her body stretch out or her face change before my eyes in that time, but they have. When I look back at pictures of her as a newborn, the difference 12 months makes is drastic both physically and developmentally, yet […]

Oh be careful, little mouth, what you say

I like to talk.  If you’ve ever met me in person, you’re probably thinking, “Wow, Kathryn.  Shocker.” I know. Hear me out. It’s not that I don’t like silence or being quiet.  I’m actually very comfortable in it. It’s that when I’m with other people, I want to communicate.  I want to share stories and […]
