You Know How I Wasn’t Invited…

To attend that party? To play on that team? To sit at that table? To go on that trip?  It’s okay. It really is okay. It wasn’t okay at first. I was hurt as everyone whispered plans and gushed about the fun to be had. I was wistful as I watched every picture go up on Instagram. I was angry as names were […]

Taking Sides


Last week on the Timothy’s Gift Hope Tour, Melissa shared at each prison a beautiful message from John 8. We probably know or at least recognize the story… 1  Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach […]

I […]

IF Is Happening In Your Places

One of my favorite things about the IF:Gathering is how women have been inspired to lead in their places, in their homes, in their churches, in their communities, and in their cities. IF is being lead by women who live down the street, women who work down the hall, women who have raised their hands and said, […]
