You ever get presented with an opportunity that you’re really excited about, and then pretty much instantly plunge into despair that you’re not enough—good enough, smart enough, qualified enough, whatever—to do it?

Does the Bible offer black and white questions to every question we have, or is it our responsibility to find nuance when it comes to difficult issues?

In recent years, mom shaming has come to the forefront of this shame spiral. Everyone seems to have an opinion on exactly how women should […]

Ah, the new year. As soon as the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, something shifts in us, doesn’t it?
