Milk and Honey Magazine article with author Lauren Miller on her new book All Things New about overcoming anxiety and stress with help from Jesus!

Q&A: All Things New

Struggling with anxiety is hard enough, but as Christians, there’s an added level of stigma attached to it: as if our anxiousness stems from a lack of trust in God, or an immature faith. It’s a dilemma no one understands more than author Lauren Miller.


Milk and Honey Magazine wants you, lovely girl, to CUT the distractions and find a simpler way of living. Bask in God's glory instead of tirelessly building your own!

✄ the distractions

For the longest time I thought I needed to be more organized. Then I realized I just needed less stuff.

Feeling worn down? Stressed? Overwhelmed?

Fortunately, there is a legitimate cure: cutting away the excess! We, as God's precious daughters, need to learn to narrow our choices. How often do we choose things we think are absolutely essential in this life when they’re not? Few things the world tells us are mandatory actually are mandatory!


Milk and Honey Magazine knows Jesus has a divine plan for all young women to love, serve, play, laugh, and work for God's Kingdom. He has a special mission for you, darling, just like the Bible character Esther!

Your ♚ Was Planned

"For if you keep quiet at this time... you and your father’s house will be destroyed. You likely became queen for such an opportune time as this!" Esther 4:14

God has a divine calling on your specific life; a call to love, serve, laugh, play, and work... the very things Jesus did during His 33 years as a man. God places each of us into a particular situation (through our family, circumstances, country) culminating into our sphere of influence. We can all reach a different people group, be it our friends, neighbors, parents, etc.


Milk and Honey Magazine explains the importance of forgiving in a Christ-like way!

Forgiveness is Beautiful

I’ve been told I'm often too forgiving. Maybe it’s my naivety or just the way my soul works, but I tend to let others (and myself!) off the hook quite easily. Just like every other human being, I've been stepped on by others and ridiculed by my own self. It’s hard to forgive in instances where you don’t know how to resolve an issue or mend a broken relationship.

I share this not to vent or complain about obstacles I've faced with people and myself over the past couple of years, but to show how I’ve learned to overcome these types of grudges.


Milk and Honey Magazine gives advice on how to encourage your girlfriends, remove gossip from your life, and invite new friends to join on adventures! Let's be loving daughters of Jesus Christ, babe.

#Squadgoals

Ahhh…it seems like just yesterday that I was rackin’ up my mom’s credit card debt at Target, buyin’ binders, ramen noodles, and a turquoise shower caddy for my quickly approaching college adventure. I remember hoping that, in addition to earning my Bachelor’s degree, I would obtain my MRS. Degree. Although I have yet to meet my future husband, God has provided me with my future bridesmaids. Friends who, first and foremost, set my eyes on Christ when life’s distractions threaten to tear my gaze from Him.


Milk and Honey Magazine explains the power of affirmations. Biblically, encouragement can be such a beautiful, uplifting practice. Encourage your girlfriends today, lovely princess!

Power of Affirmations

I was first exposed to the power of affirmations from my sister, Mary. I was a freshman in high school and terrified of taking my first final. I woke up the next morning to a post-it note on my bathroom mirror saying, “You can do this, G. You are smart and you are prepared.” Waking up and seeing that note changed my entire day. I believe I passed that exam largely because of the words my sister wrote, boosting my confidence knowing someone believed in me.


Milk and Honey Magazine - It's okay to be confident and have dignity and self-worth, lovely girl. You are a daughter of God!

It's OK to Be Confident

Oh, the joys of being 14. Those awkward years of transitioning from a little girl into a pre-teen, wearing far too much eye liner to my first dance in the school gym, praying my crush would tap my shoulder during Nelly's 'Over and Over'... (such fond memories...)


Milk and Honey Magazine explains how to get over Mr. Right and find the husband God has for you in HIS timing! You are a princess, darling girl!

Getting Over Mr. Wrong

Breakups are hard…even the ones that we know are literally the best thing for us. And as we fight like hell to move on, we come upon the golden question…

“I know he was bad for me, so why do I still feel so deeply for him? Why do I still love him? I thought once I got back on track with the Lord, I wouldn’t desire him anymore…but the feelings just continue to increase-growing stronger and stronger.How long will I fight these feelings? I left him in the past, but he is still present in my heart.”

Present Over Perfect

After finding herself exhausted, isolated, and sick, author Shauna Niequist came to a point where she knew her life had to change. She was tired, burnt out, and felt unconnected to the people she loved.
