I’ve been doing a lot of writing lately. Writing a book (Letters from a Big Sister), writing curriculum for Beautiful Unique Girl (check out their website for amazing resources for teen girls) and writing articles.
I’m excited to share my latest article because I think it’s really going to help you. It’s so easy to assume pain is bad and do everything can to avoid it. But what if your pain actually has something to teach you? What if it’s the pathway to a fuller, more abundant life?
“The pain which I feared so much and worked so hard to avoid, it came to me as I’d never experienced it before. It came to me as a teacher. A kind and even gentle teacher.”

A few years ago I created a simple, reflective resource to celebrate the advent season called “We Will Wait”. This ebook is centered around the four themes of advent – Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.

Who I Am
I have a 4 year old and an almost 6 year old (gasp! how did that happen so fast?) and they teach me something new almost every day. They live with such freedom and passion. They have no fear of man. They only want to explore and discover, preferably with mom and dad. When… Read More
In the fall of 2014 I experienced my first panic attack. I was on an airplane waiting to take off from the Toronto airport, on my way home from a conference I’d been speaking at. A weekend that was supposed to be full of fun and connection left me feeling insecure and vulnerable to the lies… Read More
by: Hannah Giddens and Heather Boersma This was written to bless the men in our Revival Group at school and I wanted to share it with all of the amazing men in my life. As a mother to a son, my biggest heart for you is for you to be you, not like the man standing… Read More
We had dinner with new friends last night (isn’t it the best when you find new couple friends??) and one of them said she thinks everyone should do first year at BSSM, especially if you want to just win at life. And who doesn’t want that? But seeing not everyone has the chance to do… Read More
Walking into the auditorium, my heart pounded with expectation (and some anxiety). Surely when 1100 people sacrifice everything and move their lives across states, countries, even continents, driven by a hunger for more intimacy with God – surely then He will show up. And that’s why we’ve come, not to network or get noticed by the right… Read More
Back in June, Alex and I travelled down to Redding California to check out Bethel and decide whether or not to move our family down here for 9 months so I could attend Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. I was really excited to check out the church on Sunday morning and experience in person what… Read More
