Praising the Healer

One of my favorite attributes of God is that He is the healer. Growing up in the church, I feel like I’ve always had a basic understanding of this truth, but over the last several years my understanding has expanded. I have now seen how multifaceted the healing that comes from God truly is. The…

Breathing in Blessing

There is little that comes more naturally in life or is taken for granted more than breathing. It is something that I don’t thank God for enough or even contemplate the nuances of. I took a walk earlier and as I was walking and asking the Lord what he had to say through me about…

Until the Last Breath

I’ve been thinking about death a lot lately. Yes, cheery I know, but stick with me. These thoughts haven’t been directed much toward my own death, but rather lives that from an earthly perspective have been taken too soon. This last year as several people close to me have struggled with losing someone dear to…

Pursuing Wisdom with Sarah Callen: A Book Review

Proverbs has long been one of my favorite books of the Bible. There is so much information, so much depth to the book, that it is both overwhelming and encouraging. Needless to say, when I had the opportunity to read and review Sarah Callen’s newest devotional book, A Proverb a Day: A 40-day Pursuit of…

Realizing the Boldness of Faith

Boldness is probably about one of the last words that anyone would ever use to describe me. I am the most introverted, least likely to ruffle feathers, go with the flow kind of person, and always have been. Occasionally, I will speak up boldly when something is really important to me and if the conditions…

Calming the Chaos with 3 Focused Routines

As I look back on 2018, it was nothing like I anticipated it to be. There were many great times full of family, friends, laughter, memories, and successes. However, there were also darker times of confusion, heartache, frustration, and disappointment. Unfortunately, the latter things are what I am tempted to focus on when I think…

Finding Purpose in the Pain of Christmas

Author: Karly Grant Christmas. For some, that word brings feelings of excitement, glee, celebration, and magic. For others, that word invokes grief, dread, lost hope, or sadness. Or maybe you find yourself at a crossroad of all these emotions like I do? No matter where you find yourself this holiday season, I want you to…

God’s Faithfulness in the Gathering

Well folks, ready or not, the holiday season is upon us. As much as I love my family and friends, this season can also be immensely stressful and draining for me, the introvertiest of introverts. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the festivities and the people that I get to celebrate with, but I…

Finding Home

Author: Karly Grant What do Chris Daughtry, Macaulay Culkin, Bowflex, and The Bible have in common? They all, in varying ways, have used their platform to influence our culture’s ideas about home. What is this vague, yet familiar idea of “home” that we all use in our daily lives, yet have a hard time defining?…

Who am I?

Author: Karly Grant One thing that never ceases to amaze me (although I shouldn’t be surprised by it) is how when there’s something I’m supposed to hear or learn, God uses several different people and situations to teach me. He reminds me of that thing and makes it abundantly clear that I need to listen…
