The Nail Salon Samaritan

Posted by Lauren Battle on

When was the last time you were left speechless, in complete awe of the goodness and kindness of a stranger? The last time someone reminded you of the beauty and hope and joy that is left in this world? I will never forget the moment when I last felt this. It was just days after my mom had...

Faith Over Here

Posted by Lauren Battle on

What is the worst storm you have ever been through? Was it the loss of a loved one, a job failure, financial trouble, physical illness, mental illness, a failed marriage or an addiction? The truth is, none of us are exempt from the storms that life throws at us. Even the disciples, with Jesus by...

Satan's Lies

Posted by Lauren Battle on

One of the most sobering realizations we can come to as followers of Christ is that although our God is greater and has more power and love and wisdom than we could ever even imagine, there is also an evil, supernatural force that can’t be denied. Satan is the enemy, and he seeks out to...

Agape Love

Posted by Lauren Battle on

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. — 1 Corinthians 13:4–5 I had my entire life planned out, or so I thought. Finish college...

A New Set Of Eyes

Posted by Lauren Battle on

I’m sure that you can relate: you snap out of a daze and look around, only to realize that you’ve just driven from point A to point B without even noticing it. It’s not because you weren’t conscious or unaware. It’s because it felt so routine that you barely had to...

A Purpose For The Pain

Posted by Lauren Battle on

I think it’s safe to say that we all like to start each new year off on a positive note. We tend to see it as a time to start over, set new goals, have a new perspective, and do everything we can to have a great year. That’s the idea, at least. For my family, the year started off as...

Anything But Routine

Posted by Lauren Battle on

Growing up in the church, prayer was a routine part of my life. We would pray before every meal and then say a prayer every night before bed. These prayers were usually short and monotonous and lacked intent and boldness. It wasn’t until I entered adulthood that I realized the real power...

The Thief Of Joy

Posted by Lauren Battle on

We’ve all been there. Sitting in the waiting room of a doctor’s office, or any office for that matter, is not my idea of a good time. As seconds turned to minutes, and the minutes dragged on, while anxiously awaiting to hear my name called, I decided to pick up a magazine. I...

A Light In The Darkness

Posted by Lauren Battle on

During the Christmas season, there are lights everywhere we look: on our beautifully decorated Christmas trees, wrapped in the garland on our mantles, coming from our glowing fireplaces, or outside our homes, lining our roofs, wrapped around our trees and nestled neatly in our bushes. Even in...

A Test of Faith

Posted by Lauren Battle on

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” &mdash...
