God’s Word vs. Novels: What do you crave?

God’s Word vs. Novels: What do you crave?

God's Word vs. Novels: What do you crave? - Tirzah Magazine

I couldn’t help but stare at those pages. So many Bibles in sight: sitting on people’s laps, scribbled notes, and the soft crinkle of the pages turning.

I was sitting in the balcony at church smooshed between two girls from my small group. The church was completely packed on that sticky Friday night, people coming in each night that week to worship the Lord and hear from speakers. My church…

Post-Incredible Stress Disorder

Post-Incredible Stress Disorder - Tirzah Magazine The Berlin air was far too freezing for my warm Florida blood and I covered my nose with my coat to avoid the smells of the street.

Women lined the dark road, pacing in small circles with a few parking spaces in between each one. They wore knee-high boots and fleeces with big fur collars to evade the cold night air.

I was prayer walking behind a team of volunteers that minister to women in…

Do Not Fear Him

Do Not Fear Him

Do Not Fear Him - Tirzah Magazine

For a long time I would hear Christians compare humans to sheep: wandering aimlessly without purpose. It would anger me. I would think defensively, “I’m not like them!” It has taken me a long time to realize the truth – no matter how unpleasant it is to hear some times – in those words.

I am like a sheep.I often feel lost and in constant search of some larger purpose for living that resonates…

Love today’s article on TirzahMag.com about friendships // “What if we all lived in this place of honesty?

Happy Monday!

Breaking the Friendship Mold

Breaking the Friendship Mold

Breaking the Friendship Mold - Tirzah Magazine

As women it seems as if our friendships are often characterized by gossip and drama. You’re either the girl who fears confrontation or the girl who feeds off of it. Either way, it’s time we call for a change.

Up until about a year ago I would have categorized myself with the girls who fear confrontation. If a friend offended me or hurt my feelings, whether it was legitimate or perceived, I would…

Learning to Surrender Addiction

Learning to Surrender Addiction

Learning to Surrender Addiction - Tirzah Magazine My addiction to pornography began when I was eight-years-old.

It was something I’d heard about and seen in my household, so naturally as a little girl I was curious. Curiosity quickly turned into habit. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I realized that what was holding me back from a relationship with Jesus was that for the past nine years I had justified my addiction to…

Spontaneous Community & Why It's Important - Tirzah Magazine

As Christians, we have become obsessed with organized religion. We are thrilled to be part of Bible studies, church groups, and volunteer organizations. However, we forget the real significance behind these organizations. While they are pertinent to spreading the gospel, we are at risk of forgetting the community around us.

Christian women are steeped in church. We are immersed in tutoring…

Experiencing God Through His Creation

Experiencing God Through His Creation - Tirzah Magazine

A few days ago, Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho endured a rampage of summer storms. Two glorious nights of terrific splendor and magnificence of nature! But, until a few days ago I never sat in silence to think about the nature around me that God created.

The first morning of the storm I decided to go to the beach to read my Bible. I know, I know, going to the beach during a rainstorm seems silly, but I…

Fear of the Lord

So here I am, doing my typical Jesus time. It’s midnight, my roommates are fast asleep, candles are burning and I’m sitting in the kitchen with my new C.S Lewis Bible as Jon Guerra’s new EP “Glass” softly sets the perfect ambiance for an evening with my Creator. Little did I know that He would rock my world. Well, He always does, but this time was different. I can thank Mr. Lewis for that one.…

Yesterday, the Supreme Court passed down a decision in favor of Hobby Lobby. Categorized as a religious freedom case, the Court held that closely-held corporations with religious affiliations don’t have to provide certain forms of contraceptives to their employees under the Affordable Care Act if it’s against their religious beliefs. Of course, the decision has sparked national debate concerning religious freedom versus women’s rights. So, today (mostly in honor of Independence Day!) I am guest blogging on Ashes to Beauty about freedom of religion. // http://www.ashestobeauty.net // the link is also posted on the Tirzah site and my Facebook page! :)

We are so incredibly good at making everything in life about ourselves - me this, me that. My dreams, my timing, my talents…and once in awhile, we might fit God in there somewhere. So today on Tirzah, one young woman is sharing how a life spent performing on stage taught her to give God all the attention. #god #faith #Tirzah #centerstage #humility
