The Phrase that Enslaves Moms in Every Season: “I can’t vilify the ‘just wait’ mom who scorned me without admitting that I have been this same mom before—popping off to young moms with the same hurtful words. Even after absorbing the impact and feeling the pain of the ‘just waits’ more than a few times, I still regularly catch myself standing on the precipice of pride—wanting to toss my stone-like words at younger and less experienced moms. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit hasn’t let me off the hook. He convicts me of my sinful arrogance when I use this snarky phrase.”

Ordinary Christians and the Great Commission: “Some of these authors tacitly (or even blatantly) suggest thatordinary must be synonymous with apathetic and that all these comparative and superlative terms–this-er, that-er–are synonymous with godly. But when I look to the Bible I just don’t see it.”
