Confessions of a Wicked and Slothful Servant

I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I was nine years old, if I remember correctly. I base this timing off the bible that I was given soon afterward, which was dated in December of 1996. Although I’m fuzzy on some details, because I was just a kid and did not pay attentionContinue reading “Confessions of a Wicked and Slothful Servant”

Why I Believe in Jesus: He is the Physician

It can feel awkward talking or writing about the things Jesus has done for you. On one hand, I want to talk about who I was and the changes He made in me so that He is honored and so that others might be encouraged. However, I also understand that doing so can be offContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus: He is the Physician”

What Matters Most

In times of confusion, strife, and division, it can be easy to lose sight of what matters most. Today, I am going to republish two posts from my former website, kindlingtruth.com. This might not be what you expect. This is not about confusion, strife, and division among the nation in terms of politics. Instead, thisContinue reading “What Matters Most”

Please read this from beginning to end prayerfully before refusing or responding. As Christians, we are fellow servants one to the other.

Terrible Mothers: Sabotaged Education

Fathers are of fundamental importance, but as a mother, I think a lot about the importance of good mothering. My relationship with my own mother has been strained—and that is putting it lightly. Due to lack of proper example and a slew of mental/emotional problems I carried, I did not know how to be aContinue reading “Terrible Mothers: Sabotaged Education”

Rapture…or Resurrection?

The Rapture? … Or the Resurrection (and transfiguration)? 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleepContinue reading “Rapture…or Resurrection?”

Share Your Story

I see two extremes in our society right now in how people deal with their painful stories or darker selves. On one hand, we are encouraged to stay positive and to put our best face on for others to see. Social media is well-crafted to fuel addiction, so that we get a nice boost ofContinue reading “Share Your Story”

Why I Believe in Jesus—He is the Good Shepherd

I wrote previously about the night I called out to Jesus and the effect that had on my life, but I want to share more about where I was before that night. I got “saved” and was baptized in 1996 when I was 9 years old. My mother gave me a King James bible, andContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus—He is the Good Shepherd”

Considering Proverbs 9:13-18

13 A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing. 14 For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city, 15 To call passengers who go right on their ways: 16 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, sheContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 9:13-18”

Gaslighting from a Christian Perspective

What is Gaslighting? Gaslighting is a manipulative tactic in which one person attempts to distort the reality of another. Gaslighting is often done to escape accountability for wrongdoing. For example, person A might have said or done something hurtful to Person B. If Person B were to bring the matter up to person A, personContinue reading “Gaslighting from a Christian Perspective”
