The problem with holidays is that they happen every year.
The problem with being a blogger is that you’re expected to write about holidays… every year. (Is this true?)
Well, yesterday was Valentine’s Day and my opinion about the holiday is still the same as last year: I’m still single and love should [...]
Hey, friends, the year is drawing to a close. Obviously. It’s with great excitement that I look forward to next year. Mostly because I hope it brings a job offer. But I also look forward to a top secret blog series starting in January!
Before I announce what that will be, I want to hear about [...]
“What if we woke up today with only the things we thanked God for yesterday?”
I like quotes. I read a lot of them throughout the day, especially on Twitter (@KatieAx3). But this one struck me in a way few have.
Instantly, I began thanking God for everything within my gaze.
Thanks for the [...]
I was talking through some of my feelings and challenges on the phone with my friend Stacy. Basically, I melted on her. I don’t understand why God has asked (forced) me to leave home to move across the country home. Among other things, she reminded me that my friends, though 900 miles away, are still here [...]
It had been a long day. The car said I’d been on the road for 31 minutes but it felt like considerably longer. I’d left my house fourteen hours earlier and hadn’t been home since.
I’ll be honest, I was starting to feel sorry for myself and my long day. While parts of it (like [...]
I don’t think we could have fit anything else into this weekend had we tried. A pasta dinner for 30 high school tennis girls, a baby shower (with two-week old baby), a graduation/ birthday party, a tennis quad, a family reunion, church, dinner out, and… the wake for a fourteen year old.
Her death was instant. [...]
Hello, friends! If all is going as planned, I am on a plane bound for China by the time you’re reading this.
My friend Amber and I have had an amazing opportunity open up to us to serve the Lord in China. We’ve been able to see His hand in all of the planning steps [...]

Mom: What’s your plan for [...]
My dad’s birthday was earlier this month, so while everyone else was out, I had the job of answering our home phone. I don’t usually pay any attention to the home phone because no one calls me there. But this particular day I did and what I saw was an area code from Baptist Country.
My friend Elizabeth was asked to lead an evening twenty-somethings Bible study at her church. No one thought to give her a key to the church, and she didn’t think to ask for it.
So, after dinner, we pulled up to church without a way to get inside. Instead, we set up camp in the parking lot and [...]
