Christian sister, maybe you've recognized that your hustle is stealing your peace, but I'll bet you don't realize that patriarchy wants it this way. Our entire system pushes women to be more and do more and juggle more with the promise that if we prove we are "good...
Some seasons are challenging, while others are downright exhausting.
This time we’re in right now feels like a whole different level of chaos. There are battles that need to be fought, but heavy lifting tends to take a heavy toll on each of us. So, here are a few things you can do to care for yourself when life gets chaotic.
Women in the church are constantly facing toxic religious culture and trauma. Patriarchal teaching and abusive leadership create a toxic environment where women question their value, voice, and beliefs. Even though trauma changes our lives, it's possible to grow...
I think it’s important to get really honest about how faith isn’t always comfortable, Sometimes spiritual growth really challenges us and there’s a lot of work to be done. It’s unrealistic to expect that every day Christian community will be all shiny happy people-ish.
This conversation is focusing on much deeper pain than the normal ups and downs.
We are talking about the church hurts that have nothing to do wit God. Things like physical, emotional, spiritual and sexual abuse at the hands of church leadership. Or church sanctioned racism, nationalism, xenophobia, gender bias and homophobia that teaches some neighbors are less worthy of our love.

Refusing to engage in any and all forms of conflict. Or even bending over backward to make sure that others are comfortable, even in situations where they are in the wrong. However, this type of thinking actually tends to cause more harm than good, both in our own lives and in the lives of others.
Deconstruction often garners pushback from church leaders who cry “heretic!” But is deconstructing your faith biblical?
Deconstructing faith is so important because it moves us away from idolizing the church and moves us toward God.
Together we WILL #smashthepatriarchy and empower the next generation to build on our shoulders. Here are a few of my favorite Christian Feminist quotes from some powerful women to give you a little extra bump of encouragement and fire up your feminist soul.
Dear Sister, The world is really noisy right now, isn’t it? There area a lot of voices SHOUTING to be heard. I wonder which voice holds the most power over your daily life. A lot of women find that the voice with the most power is not actually their own. It might be...
A challenging season coaxes up things to the surface that we may have overlooked in our determination to flourish. Even if we don't like them, challenging seasons have a way of showing us we can do things we never thought we could. 2020 has been a difficult in many...
