Read What Inspires You

What if we didn't have to be a victim of our circumstances, no matter how terrible they might be? What if true victory was possible today, and not just in theory? Could victory be for this life and not just in heaven?
In a deeply personal journey, Samantha investigates these questions and more as she applies God-given science, psychology, and scripture to her own life. It is possible to be victorious no matter your past.

Have you ever felt like you’ve reached a ceiling in your faith? Sometimes that ceiling can look like a wall, a rut, or even a routine. It’s a mindset that believes you’ve gotten to a point where there’s nothing new to be had in your relationship with God. It’s a heartb...

Sin is like shrapnel and removing it hurts, but it's not as bad as the pain that comes from the infection that results from ignoring it.

My most beloved dream has been on a detour for the better half of a decade. Rather than a dream of possibility it looks a bit like Ernest Hemingway's fish in the Old Man and the Sea; being dragged through the water, dead, and slowly being eaten along the journey until...

“A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.” - Matthew 10:24, ESV
