What I Learned From A Closet Purge

Being a Woman in Light of the Gospel

The past few weeks, I've done a few things a bit uncharacteristic for me. I started a study of Proverbs 31 , the infamous "perfect woman" of the Bible. And I went to a Christian women's retreat. On the surface, these may not seem very radical to you. If you're a female conservative evang

But over the pas

I'm Stepping Out of the Comparison Game

American Woman, I tip my hat to you. I forgot what it was like to live under the burden of expectation. The countless number of ways to live and love and mother also means countless voices telling you how to do that. And choice is overwhelming to me right now. Food, ho

How Pregnancy Made Me Go Green

When those two blue lines showed up on the strip of the plastic Vietnamese pregnancy test in my bathroom in Cambodia, I had no idea how many changes were ahead of me. And I had no idea how much being pregnant would make me go green. Ok, just in case you're wondering, I don't mean green with envy,

How Cambodia Taught Me to Love Real Food

When we moved to Cambodia three years ago, I had no idea that I'd have to throw out everything I knew about food and cooking and grocery shopping, and start from scratch... pun absolutely intended. Before Cambodia, I considered myself fairly proficient in the kitchen. My favorite dish to make was
