Creating For Him

The sun in the sky, the petal of a flower, the toes of a newborn baby, the waves of the sea, the chirping of birds. The world is a magnificent place filled with beautiful creations that all point to God’s creativity. You would have to really work hard to argue that our God is not a creative God.

How To Be Intentional

Intentional (adj): done on purpose; deliberate; studied; meant.

I'm pretty intentional. Or, more accurately, I have been told that I am an extremely intentional person.

Milk and Honey Magazine advice on living neighborly and Christlike

Living Neighborly

After two years of living in the same condo complex, I didn't know my neighbors. So, when the church sermon of the week was titled 'Loving Your Neighbor,' I rolled my eyes. "I live in a condo! It's so much harder to meet people than in a real neighborhood!" At least... that's what I thought.

I bit the bullet and decided to see what God could do. "Hey, God, if you have someone you want me to meet, please open that door." Let's just say I didn't expect much.

Milk and Honey Magazine's secrets to understanding the good life Jesus has for His daughters. A life free of sin, brokenness, depression, and overwhelming stress. God has you in His arms, lovely girl.

Facing Depression Correctly

Spring gave a convincing false start last month in Chicagoland. It was the first of March, and I found myself outside in the shining sun, enjoying a mild 60° breeze. After three months spent licking icicles (which have since returned,) I was unable to resist nature’s charms—shed a quick tear for global climate change—and took a walk in the woods. After about a mile, I stopped to sit on a split log and looked up into the sky. Gazing into the vast blue dome rimmed in still-naked black oak branches, I took a deep breath and thought, “I am so glad I exist."

Living Intentionally With Your Money

As a financial advisor, I do a lot of writing on the topic of financial planning. I write about how to maximize your retirement savings, how to purchase your first home, and how to build a budget that works for you and while there are certainly a lot of details to keep track of when it comes to financial planning, writing about it is relatively straightforward.

You Are Not Weak

You know how seeing a picture can bring back memories?

I saw a photo recently that reminded me of a time in my life where I felt my lowest. It was a photo of myself and a few friends the day after I had a major anxiety attack.

I was involved in wonderful ministries, had amazingly encouraging friends, food to eat, a place to live, etc. Life was good. From the outside.
