Strength in Synergy and Strategy

By: Lisa Bevere  “…gather with others and strategize so God’s goodness will be seen through us.” —Lioness Arising, pg. 24. Let’s focus on the word synergy for a moment. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, synergy is defined as the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.

Why I Wouldn’t Date Jesus

By: Jessica Pisani As I was tucking in one of my favorite 9-year-olds, she prayed for me to find my husband. She and her little siblings are very invested and curious as to why I am not married yet.

However, as the years have marched on, so has a lingering desire for companionship. After...

Who Makes the Coffee? (Your Laugh of the Day)

A couple was arguing about who is responsible for  making the coffee. The wife said that in the Bible it says that men should make the coffee, and the husband asked her where it said that. The wife opened the Bible and said: “Right here in HEBREWS!” Oh snap! So, what’s the point of this post. No point really. It’s just a reminder to laugh…as often (and as loudly) as you please. It’s the best...

Well, That Was Fun

By: Ayren Jackson-Cannady The #blizzardof2016 rolled across the DMV like a boss, dumping 20+ inches of snow in my backyard. I stopped counting after the Spiderman bike disappeared. Anxious East Coasters prepared for the worst by salting sidewalks and stocking up at the supermarket (bread, milk, and more bread; actually all of the bread, please). Now that the storm has cleared is clearing, we can look back and see that the whole thing...
