  Burn to Memory is our special section focused on Scripture to memorize. Pin it, print it or make it your smartphone wallpaper. Why is memorizing Scripture so important?

Rain is a good thing.

By Anna Vanhoose I don’t know about y’all but here in South Carolina it has rained nonstop for three months. It’s crazy! It’s so hard to not let your day get ruined when you wake up and see that – big surprise- it’s raining again. These days it’s hard for me not to get bummed…

Come and go.

By Tiffany Deluccia To come and to go. Since the beginning of the year, my Bible study leader has been repeating that phrase. The two number one callings of every Christ-follower are to come to Him and to go into the world with His love. But when the pressure is on… – mid-term exams approach…

Burn to Memory Matthew 28:18-19

Sometimes jarring yourself back into perspective is as simple as recalling this verse: This is what we were left here to do. Wherever you are, this is your goal. Your purpose is to know Him; your mission is to make Him known. When the pressure is on, do we call to remembrance His sacrifice for…

Burn to Memory 2 Thessalonians 3:13

Tomorrow is the first day of October – nutty how quickly this year is going by! The end of the year can  turn into a boiling pot of high-stress ingredients mixed with a lot of things that are supposed to be fun. For me, those currently include holidays, football games, my sister’s wedding, family birthdays,…

Review: Speak Love by Annie Downs

By Tiffany Deluccia Zondervan sent me a copy of Annie Downs’ new book Speak Love to review for you lovely friends. The thesis is simple: Make your words matter. They can speak death to those around you (and we all know our words have done that), or they can be life-giving. Annie is funny, and…

Bitter-sweet?

By Lydia Sellers Bitter. Not a pleasant word. Ever bitten into a piece of fruit expecting pure succulence, but instead got a slap as sour juice hit your tongue? You can’t get rid of the awful tang until you eat something else. Some people have the same effect. In fact, some Christians have the same…

Pride and Beauty

Pride is something we naturally resist and disapprove of in others and yet so often find in some form in ourselves.

Burn to Memory Proverbs 18:12

  Humility is a beautiful thing and a mark of true grace in a woman. We belong to the King, yes; but what He has done for us should develop a deep humility in us. Apart from Him, we have nothing. By His love, we have everything–and He offers that same love to every single person…

Devo: Sisters in Christ, daughters of the King

By Anna Vanhoose “Of all the creations of the Almighty, there is none more beautiful, none more inspiring, than a lovely daughter of God. Who walks in virtue with an understanding of why she should do so. Who nurtures her spirit with everlasting truth.” – Gordon B. Hinckley So how do gals like us walk…

Devo: Princess undercover.

By Tiffany Deluccia I find it difficult to feel like a King’s daughter on an average day. Life feels so much more real. I am a twenty-five year-old wife, volunteer, friend, professional. Princess doesn’t happen. “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O Daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you!” Zechariah 9:9 But…

Burn to Memory: Zechariah 9:9

The word “behold” isn’t used so much in our everyday vernacular, but it’s important in this verse. One definition of the word means “to see or observe a thing or person, especially a remarkable or impressive one.” Our King is a remarkable and impressive One. We belong to Him. To behold Him coming to you is…

Catching Up w/ Kaleigh: A Hug in Hilton Head

— Today’s post was one of Kaleigh’s last before she flew to the Philippines THIS week! Please join me in lifting her up in prayer. — Tiffany By Kaleigh Ward My toes were buried in the sand, the sun was browning my skin, and I was surrounded by the sound of crashing waves and delighted…

The Myth of Perfect Dating – via Relevant Magazine

TJ recently sent me this article to read from Relevant Magazine, and it’s on point, so I thought I’d share it with you. It deals with some of the pressures and general silliness the Christian community puts on dating. Take this excerpt, for instance; I bet you’ve had (or know someone who’s had) a similar…

Devo: Lingerie confidence.

By Tiffany Deluccia Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? For this is Your rightful due. For among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like You. But they are altogether dull-hearted and foolish; a wooden idol is a worthless doctrine. Jeremiah 10:7-8 A wooden idol is…

Burn to Memory Jeremiah 10:10

A lot of things exalt themselves as kings in our world. Deception can creep into our lives. Ask God today to show you anything in your life that is a lie, anything that is exalting itself above Him. He is the only God, the true King, the truth. And He has made you His own….

Devo: Parable of the adopted.

By Tiffany Deluccia What does it feel like to be adopted? I grew up in a home with two loving parents from birth. I have no scars of abandonment. I never wondered if they would change their mind about being my parents. I never watched the other kids get picked, wondering what was wrong with…
