I want to explore in this post the difference between the two and why the happiness of this world is merely a counterfeit of the joy Yahweh offers. Happiness. … Continue reading // Replacing Temporal Happiness with Lasting Joy //

// Why I’m Not Celebrating Easter //

I've celebrated Resurrection Sunday (aka Easter) my whole life. When I was younger I loved getting candy each year in a cute lil' basket, and as I got older I saw the beautiful meaning behind Easter - Christ dying for me to set me free.

“I want you here.” That’s what God told me right after I got back from my second trip to Haiti.  He wasn’t talking about that beautiful little island, though.

// 5 Ways to Use Social Media for the Glory of God //

I did a little experiment recently. I went and browsed a few of my Facebook friends profiles, not to stalk them, but to see if I could tell they were a Christians by what they posted on Facebook. The results were sad, but they didn’t really surprise me. Most of my friends maybe posted about … Continue reading // 5 Ways to Use Social Media for the Glory of God //

// Living to Please God Alone //

Oftentimes, we follow the ways of this world, even doing things that could cause harm to ourselves or others. We do this so we can receive acceptance and affirmation from those around us, and don't seem to notice how wrong it can be. I recently heard about the trend of eating tide pods (aka little … Continue reading // Living to Please God Alone //

// Complaining – How it Will Ruin You //

Complaining. It’s something we do a lot, but probably not something we want to talk about, or admit to. But, nevertheless, it’s an important topic- one that’s been on my heart lately, and something that consumed a lot of my thoughts last year.
