Being someone who tends to struggle with technology, I'm thankful to have some family and friends whom I can call upon when having struggles with these things. A friend who I'll call "R." recently helped me figure out something with my phone, a feature that I didn't think my phone had. And yet, it did!… Continue reading Eternal, Life-Revolutionizing Friendships.
"I'm not a good candidate to carry this cross." I told God one day. It just didn't make sense anymore. I was thinking that maybe the good Lord could have allowed someone who really wanted to be single to shoulder this burden. There's simply nothing about me or my background that would make me a… Continue reading I’m Not Suited for This Cross.
On this winding, unexpected, joyful, tumultous journey of life, I've realized that it simply isn't possible to do this journey alone. More importantly, it's crucial to closely examine those on the journey with you. Having the "right" people to run the race with you can make a difference in how far you can get ahead--as… Continue reading We Can’t Run Alone.
"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!

There is one particular area which I'll share on in-depth in this post, and that is the relationship area of my life. During my middle… Continue reading A Testimony: From Loneliness to Overflow.
The world is collectively suffering right now. Some areas more than others, or in different ways than others. There is panic. I don't think I need to mention why, because we probably hear the word 100 hundred times a day already. It incites anxiety, fear, and maybe depression. It leads many to look out for… Continue reading This is an Opportunity.
Huge changes and decisions were on the horizon. They had been decisions which had been coming for a long time, but were still a struggle to make. Even the wonderful things in life can cause stress, uncertainty, and questioning. People whom I hadn't spoken to in years emailed and called me. "Hey Lianna, how's it… Continue reading Their Prayers Gave Me a Push!
Last year, I started a ministry for single Christian women. I saw that this is a large population, but it did not seem that there was much which focused on their unique needs. So far, there has been much success in creating deep friendships based on Christ and educating and encouraging women on their life… Continue reading Single Women’s Prayer Partner Ministry.
Today I learned, once again, the fruits of small acts of obeying the Lord. I felt Him tell me to go to a different church this morning. I had no idea why. I had been to that particular church before, but I'm not really impressed by the music. (I'm just being totally honest here!) I thought… Continue reading Small Obedience
It seems that many people feel alone. In a world that is supposedly very connected, people are feeling more isolated and depressed than ever. The suicide rate in the USA has increased. I'm not sure about the statistics in other countries, but I do know that even one person taking their life, or even feeling that… Continue reading You Are Never Alone
