• Grace is a gift, not a free pass

    Jesus came to give us a new life, not a new excuse! There’s NOTHING we can do to earn salvation. It is 100% a FREE gift – undeserved and unmerited. But how we live still matters. Because sin has consequences. It hurts us and it hurts others. And our conduct speaks volumes, especially to a […]

  • Girls, why posting sexy pics online is actually a bad idea

    A few days ago I posted this status: “When you continually flaunt photos of yourself half-naked (or always in revealing fitness gear/skimpy bikinis) you reinforce the message a woman’s best asset is her body, her beauty or her sexuality. There is nothing wrong with being healthy, fit and attractive, but surely women need to be encouraged […]

  • The guilty victim. The dichotomy of sexual abuse.

    Recently, I posted a video called “One Brave Girl shares Her story of Overcoming Sexual Abuse”. Within minutes the video had hundreds of views. One being from the husband of the girl in the film. Sadly, I received this message from him: “Hey Sabrina. I’m so sorry to do this to you, but can you […]

  • Why your pursuit of ‘happiness’ is leaving you unhappy

    We live in a day and age obsessed with happiness and we’ll do just about anything to obtain it. We’re hooked on the pursuit of “feeling good”, yet in reality so many of us are left feeling bad. We have more stuff, but we’re less satisfied. More Facebook friends, but less genuine ones. More “success”, […]

  • 3 ways to actually guard your heart

    If you’ve been around Church for more than 2 minutes you’ve probably heard someone say, “Guard your heart”. Well it’s good advice! Actually, it’s great advice! The bible tells us in Proverbs that from our heart everything else flows. So it makes sense to protect it.  To keep it soft we need to guard against […]

  • Seek first, serve second

    I’ll be the first to admit I’m the kind of person who finds it hard to stop, to sit, to wait, to rest and to receive. I’m a Martha by default, but I’m a Mary by choice. Because what’s the point of doing everything for God? And missing Him in the process. SIT FIRST, SERVE […]

  • Rejecting busy: How you can escape the hustle and live in rhythm

    As a culture we tend to glorify busyness, productivity, expansion and increase, no matter the cost. We celebrate the go-getters, the super-achievers, who are always hustling, bustling, kicking goals, making money and juggling a million hats at once. They run on coffee and never even seem to sleep. Ambition is what gets them up in […]

  • When God Says No

    Have you ever wanted something so badly or prayed for something for a really long time and it just felt like God said, no. I know I have! Probably more times than I can count. As an 18-year-old, I remember having this mad crush on a guy. He was a youth pastor at the time, […]

  • What does the Bible say about sex?

    Sex is God’s idea. Too many people running around thinking God is anti-sex. No friend, He just knows it’s designed for far greater purposes than a quick fix or temporary fling. God’s NOT anti-sex, but His ways are counter cultural. And He knows that our passions are best expressed with parameters. And marriage creates the […]

  • Forgiveness frees us

    We can’t change what’s happened to us, but we can choose to find freedom and healing through forgiveness. I know, it’s so easy to say, hard to do, but ultimately worth it. In the words of Lewis B. Smedes; “TO FORGIVE IS TO SET A PRISONER FREE AND DISCOVER THAT THE PRISONER WAS YOU.” Forgiveness […]
