Francine frequently creates characters with uncomfortably messy testimonies. But what separates Grace Moore from previous Francine protagonists is that her resume consists of knowing both the Lord and great sin.

Young & Free in Album III

At first, it can be confusing to distinguish Hillsong music. Hillsong United, perhaps the most well-known name, used to represent the church’s youth before aging into an alternative rock band. Young & Free consequently emerged in 2013 as the contemporary youthful sound, while Hillsong Worship embodies both groups collectively.

Living with Infant Loss and Learning to Grieve

Jordan Tate’s Just Keep Breathing is one of the most brilliant and tragic books I have ever read. It is powerful in all its gravity. It is beautiful in all its honest pain. Just Keep Breathing will bring you to tears and then dry them with joy.

Learning to Live in Second Place

If someone enthusiastically told you that they’re always coming in second place in everything they do, there’s almost a guarantee that you’d scrunch your eyes in perplexity. You’d probably ask yourself why anyone would be so proud of constantly falling short.

Wonder Wears its Heart on its Sleeve

The complexity of beauty, bullying, and self-love is often flatly untangled in modern storylines. However, Wonder’s relationship dynamics and resolutions are refreshing as a result of its simplicity.

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

Andrew Peterson: Painting Stories with Strings

There is no single musical artist who has affected my life more than Andrew Peterson. I affectionately call him Andy Pete, but shh, don’t tell him I told you. He is a mastermind behind poetic wording, powerful sounds, and intricate melodies. His music is hard to box in. It is more folk than not, slightly bluegrass, but not really country. It has slight hints of pop and rock but really meshes all these together in an incredibly well-blended, thoughtful melding. He’s a poet-painter and uses music as his canvas.
