The End of Gender: Debunking the Myths About Sex and Identity in Our Society By Dr. Debra Soh I studied journalism in college and briefly worked as a news reporter in both television and print before leaving the field due to sexual harassment. I preface with that because I am educated and trained to be […]

We often hear (or see) the phrase, love is love, throughout modern culture. Especially throughout the month of June – Pride month. I’ve seen bumper stickers, t-shirts, advertisements, heck, even product labels on candles and hand soaps at Bath & Body Works, that display these three short words.  The truth is – these simple, little words […]

As followers of Christ, we know we are to love our neighbors like we love our self (Matthew 22:39), but this is easier said than done. Especially in a nation with polarizing opinions, beliefs and values, hate is typically the response of choice even though love and acceptance are desired by most.  It’s challenging, I […]

Why Social Justice is NOT Biblical Justice: An Urgent Appeal to Fellow Christians in a Time of Social Crisis By Scott David Allen We’re living in a time where things, ideas, concepts and movements sound or look good. They’re presented in an appealing, accepting, loving and hopeful way. They’re perfectly packaged to accommodate a certain narrative, combat a particular argument or […]

My family has a small obsession with M&Ms. Plain, peanut, peanut butter, almond, brownie batter, crispy, pretzel…give us all of the M&Ms! We don’t discriminate! Moreover, we buy every seasonal pack that releases and aren’t afraid to try limited flavor variations either. Sure, we eat them as sweet treat on their own (I often store […]

What a great time to be a Christian! Wait…what?! Yeah. It is a fan-flipping-tastic time to be a follower of the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6). You don’t think so? Okay, I can see where you may feel discouraged, anxious, or fearful right now. We’re approaching a year of a global health […]

Fresh ears of corn are one of my (many) favorite farmers’ market finds during the summer and fall months. Another one of my favorite things during this time of the year is to attend picnics and outdoor concerts.  This recipe was inspired by a Whole Foods’ salad* I would bring to summer picnics, outdoor concerts […]

Gen Z may be growing up in a world that promotes body positivity and inclusivity, but that doesn’t mean this generation is exempt from experiencing a negative view of their body.  Gen Z is the first generation to be raised with accessible technology and the ease, convenience and connectivity that comes along with it. Yet, […]

Growing up, my family would travel out to West Michigan’s countryside each summer to visit a U-pick blueberry farm. I always loved munching on blueberries and competing with my siblings to see who could pick the most. It wasn’t until I was a grown adult that I learned my family’s annual tradition was actually rooted […]

Five years ago, I was tempted to get plastic surgery. At the time, I had recently given birth to my third child, had reached the ripe age of thirty, and had relocated from Grand Rapids, MI to Scottsdale, AZ.  I always assumed I’d get some type of “work” done and I like to think I’ve […]

100 years of body image “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of our God endures forever.” – Isaiah 40:8 It’s interesting how quickly things change in this world – societal status, ethics and morality, the meaning of words, fashion trends, beauty standards, and body norms, amongst many other cultural fads.  Society (people) […]

I technically had an eating disorder.  I say, “technically,” because I knew I wasn’t fat and didn’t need to lose weight. I never once looked in the mirror and had a distorted view of myself. I physically saw myself for what I was. I knew I was thin and consciously chose to make myself dangerously […]
