Join me for No Plan November

I have a nasty little habit of praying really diligently at the beginning of things but then once I feel like I have even a whisper from the Lord about what I should do I grab the ball, run off in that general direction and don’t really look back or check in.  It’s … not great.  It’s a good thing that I pray in the beginning of things but I’m not very good at letting the Lord redirect me or even speak to me in the process. And so that’s why I am embarking on my own No Plan November. ...

My Best Tips for Asking for What You Need

We’ve talked a lot this month about asking for what we need, which is all well and good to talk about in theory, but what about really putting this into practice? That’s why we're ending this month with a list of my best tips about discerning well whether or not to ask for help and who to trust with our vulnerability. Here they are: TIP 1: You can always ask God for help with anything and everything, no holds barred. Asking God for things needs no explanation or addendum. You are free to do it all the time for all...

You're Never Too (ANYTHING) for Jesus

You're Never Too (ANYTHING) for Jesus

Every month I design a new signature charm as a tangible reminder of the truth for the month. I love all of them, because they're all true, but this month's is in the top 3 of the this year for me. It's a lovely larger gold coin charm with a very important message: on the front it says "Be real with Jesus" and on the back it says "You're never too (ANYTHING) for Him." I've been secretly wearing one my entire maternity leave because it's made for raw moments and maternity leave is like textbook definition of raw. It’s so...

Why You Struggle to Ask for Help

Why You Struggle to Ask for Help

If asking for help is like -97 on your list of things you like to do, we're going to chat this month. The reason? Our resistance to asking for help is ALWAYS based on a lie somewhere - a lie about the need to be self-reliant, a lie about becoming a burden, a lie about what gives us worth, a lie about the nature of God. Whatever it is for you, it's not helping you. It's time for it to go. I'll tell you what my lie was - You get what you deserve. It was the most innocent sounding...

Why Everyone Can Benefit from Studying This Year

Why Everyone Can Benefit from Studying This Year

“Study“ doesn’t sound fun to everyone. Some people will actively run in the opposite direction of "studying" as if an explosive were armed and dangerous. But even if it isn’t naturally “our thing,“ did you know that everyone is called to study? Studying helps us grow in virtue: patience, perseverance, humility, and knowledge. But obviously all studying is not created equal – there are definitely things that are more worth studying than others, and you’ve probably guessed where this is going at this point and know that I’m about to say that nothing is more worth studying than the Bible....

Heading Back to School in the Word

Heading Back to School in the Word

I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I loved being a student. It’s that back to school part of the year again, and it’s left me reflecting on how those of us who aren’t students in this stage of our lives can still enter into ongoing learning and formation. And of course the first idea that came to me was studying the one book we never exhaust or outgrow: the word of God. This month, no matter where you are at in your life, whether you’re a student or not, we are inviting all of our followers to...

How We Use Stickers to Fight Lies

How We Use Stickers to Fight Lies

This month as we talk about the pursuit of peace, it’s clearly a pretty serious topic. This is really the crux of how God is inviting us to deal with the hardest things that happen in our lives – trusting him, and intentionally choosing thoughts that mimic his own, which we access in scripture. Living this out can be challenging. And that’s why switching to talking about vinyl stickers in the midst of it might seem incongruous. But really this is what our company is all about: empowering you with not just information, but also small, touchstone reminders to help...

Do You Feel Like Peace is Always Just Out of Reach?

Do You Feel Like Peace is Always Just Out of Reach?

If you're anything like me, pursuit of peace has likely been an ongoing theme in your life. There have been so many times throughout my personal history where I just wanted peace so badly and ironically enough those always seemed like the times when it was most out of reach. So often this was due to the circumstances of my life – it was finals week, I was preparing to study abroad, I was moving to a new city has an engaged young woman trying to find a job, I was a new mom with a baby and a business...

Introducing our Brand New Apparel Line!

If I had a nickel for every IG message we got asking if we had an apparel line, I probably would have closed up shop awhile ago because we'd be set. Not really, but we get a lot of messages about bringing back apparel. And so that's why we're so excited to announce that we've finally done it! Graphic tees are back and better than ever. I drew every one of our new designs, leaning into everything I've always wanted the Pink Salt Riot aesthetic to be - colorful, joyful, brimming with truth, and hard to ignore. These are graphic...

If You Struggle with This You are NOT Alone

If You Struggle with This You are NOT Alone

Sometimes equating our personal worth with our work is so ingrained in us it feels wrong NOT to - like we're skipping out on some required part of being an adult. Newsflash: God wants us to be virtuous, He wants us to grow, He wants us to take responsibility, but really is not calling us to look like your standard-issue, overly-self-reliant adult. I don't if I ever put that thought together totally prior to right now, but here's why I think it holds up: Being a "responsible adult" is so often viewed as a function of having a certain level...
