I love palm trees and college campuses (and working on a college campus surrounded by palm trees).☀️🌴❤️
There are a lot of unknowns in this life. And when the hypotheticals and the “what-ifs” start swirling through my brain (read: attacking with the vengeance of a thousand Trojan fighters), this truth is put on repeat: “We don’t have grace for that yet.” God gives grace, sufficient, beautiful, breathtaking grace, for right now. This moment. Today. We don’t have grace for hypotheticals, because God doesn’t live in the realm of what-ifs. But, because He changes not, He will give the grace necessary for us to survive all the days He leads us into. When the what-ifs become reality or when the curveballs come, the grace we need to follow Christ also comes. Yes, there are a lot of unknowns in this life. And all of them are fully known by the grace-giving, covenant-keeping God who fully knows us and provides everything we need for every circumstance He ordains for His highest glory and our deepest joy. Because of the cross, we can now rest and rejoice in the middle of unknowns. We don’t have grace for those yet, but we have Him, and He will hold us fast. ❤️
“My hope lives not because I am not a sinner, but because I am a sinner for whom Christ died; my trust is not that I am holy, but that being unholy, He is my righteousness. My faith rests not upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what Christ is, in what He has done, and in what He is now doing for me.” -Charles Spurgeon

I love Jen Wilkin but I’m not a Stalker


…or am I?

After posting the above photo with this caption:


There were some fun comments, including my bff saying:


So clearly, we love Jen. But just wait, the stalker-talk is still on the horizon.

Before we get there, you have to know that God has used her book Women of the Word in h u g e ways in my life and in my best friend’s, and after getting to interview her for the aforementioned mag article, we got to meet her at Trillia Newbell’s Fear and Faith book release party in Nashville. We talked about books and our love for Jane Austen and invited her to England with us in December to see all things Jane.


After the IG post yesterday, Haley texts me this morning and asks if I saw where Jen commented on the photo. I hadn’t. Then this happened:


Okay, okay, okay. We’re not stalkers, but we love Jen (and she knows it). And I know you will love her too.

L A D I E S,  check her out! She has some SERIOUS wisdom when it comes to Scripture, life, writing and loving God with everything we have. Do yourself a favor and read this Q&A with her. I promise you’ll get something out of it.

        Oh I did, thank you for doing it. I reviewed Women of the Word awhile back and really loved it, thankful for truth for women as well.:)
