We were friends. Good friends. Our daughters played together and enjoyed sleepovers. We laughed at the same jokes and sent each other encouraging texts. I loved seeing her face as I walked through the church lobby … she simply warmed my heart. I loved her entire family. We weren’t BFF’s, if you...

My husband and I have been in full-time vocational ministry since the day we were married. People ask me what it’s like to be a pastor’s wife, and I tell them I don’t know what it’s like to not be one. His calling colors every part of my life in a way that’s difficult to explain and, in a way,...

I had noticed her looking at him, laughing a little too loud, practically swooning over the brilliance of his sermons and cleverness of his insights. But she was my good friend, and I didn’t consider it flirting, especially since my husband paid no attention to her whatsoever. She was just...

My heart has been incredibly heavy over the state of our nation. I have friends and family on all sides of every issue, and seeing it all on display on social media is difficult to watch. So much of the back and forth—the hate, the pride, the lashing out—is disappointing, at best. I find myself...

My husband and I recently planted a new church in a transitional part of the city of Denver, I also have an autoimmune disease that leaves me exhausted and wanting to crawl into bed by 8 p.m., my mother recently died of cancer and did I mention we have four kids? Needless to say, I'm exhausted....
