I am not surprised when the innate sinfulness of human nature results in a scandal. I am especially not surprised when this happens in the Church, with "the Church" being the collective group of Jesus' family: Christians. Unfortunately, I am not surprised when Christians, the Church, and everyone else tries to sweep it under the … Continue reading Swept under the rug.
Over the winter break, I finished reading the book of Titus in a Bible study. For context purposes, Titus is part of the Pastoral Epistles. Essentially, it's a solid how-to church book. I'm a simple woman and show me any of the practical books of the Bible and I will drop everything and immerse myself … Continue reading The freedom of His abounding grace.
I thought long and hard about writing this. I've mentioned this before but I think the church as a whole idolizes romantic relationships too much and I did not want to be thrown into that category of couples. The love story of the Bible is not between Ruth and Boaz, Adam and Eve, Joseph and … Continue reading So, I’m engaged.
Or in other words, here is a portion of my testimony and my mission. I created my blog in 2017 and I do not know why it has taken so long to write something like this. The more I contemplate the timing of this post, the more grateful I am that I waited this long. … Continue reading Where my heart, soul, and mind lie: who I am and what I am trying to do.

The Bible was meant to be written as history. The Bible isn't just one book. It is made … Continue reading Why You Can Trust the Bible
Truthfully, I would love to use this post to tell you why the bible is a reliable source. Even if you want to bypass all the religious parts, it's still an accurate history book. I would love to share all the ways that scholars have proven the accuracy and reliability of the bible itself, but … Continue reading Evidence Outside of the Bible
I heard this once when someone was referring to Jesus. He claimed to be Lord as referred to in John 10:30. Knowing that God is all-knowing, all-loving and perfect, that leaves us with two options. Either Jesus was telling the complete truth or he was the biggest liar in history. There can't be an in-between. … Continue reading My Case for Christ
Am I really going to try to tackle one of the most controversial topics in the world? Why not? People always get uncomfortable when it comes to conflicting religions. With that being said, I think it is important that we question and challenge our beliefs. After all, this could make or break what happens to … Continue reading The Reason for God
