I love books. Fiction, non-fiction, they both have a deep-seated love in my heart. Over the past year, I’ve read five books that have challenged me to the core and given me a deeper yearning for Christ. I share them with the confidence that they will do the same for you! (1. Pilgrims Progress by…

Jeremiah’s Story

When I heard Jeremiah’s story, I was deeply inspired. I knew it needed to be shared far and wide, passed from one ear to the next. So at a tug from God, I sent The Rebelution an email. I shared website links and pictures, and a small glimpse into Jeremiah’s story in hopes of an article being…

Elisabeth Elliot: It’s Time To Live the Message

Elisabeth Eliot’s story is one that draws us to sit in awe of none other than God himself.  She made an impact, and this impact overflowed from an ordinary choice, day after day, to live for the sake of the gospel. She never aspired to greatness or sought applause. She simply walked on a pathway…

This Changes Everything – How the Gospel Transforms the Teen Years

I love teenage authors. Their words hop off the pages with passion. And that’s just what This Changes Everything, written by a Christian teenager, does.

When I Think of the Cross

Slow down, ponder, recalibrate—don’t feel rushed. Remember what Jesus did in these days that shaped your life forever. Cast your eyes to the cross—what do you see, feel, hear? When I think of Jesus’ cross, I see my Savior—carrying the cross, bearing the cross, suffering deeply and greatly with arms stretched out wide on the…
