I Would Rather Pick A Facebook Fight Than Tell My Friends About Jesus

By Victoria Easter Wilson / June 23, 2015 / 0 Comments

I don’t need to describe the scene. You’ve already been there. I don’t need to describe the headline. There will always be one. The We-Interrupt-Your-Regularly-Scheduled-Programming story that gets everyone talking. The story that trends hashtags.

Cutting Holes In Your Roof

By Victoria Easter Wilson / May 26, 2015 / 2 Comments

Do you remember those guys who needed to see Jesus so badly that they CUT A HOLE IN THE ROOF OF A HOUSE. A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside…

Blue Lights & God’s Law

By Victoria Easter Wilson / April 27, 2015 / 0 Comments

Recently I was pulled over by a police officer for the first time in my life. A real, live police officer. He sauntered up to my window and explained my infraction, following the car in front of me too closely, and I did all the normal things you’re supposed to do when you get pulled over…

We sang this hymn at church on Sunday. The words melted my writer’s heart, especially the last line. The Love of God | Frederick M. Lehman The love of God is greater far Than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, And reaches to the lowest hell; The guilty pair, bowed…

By Victoria Easter Wilson / March 20, 2015 / 6 Comments

Growing up a pastor’s daughter, marrying the pastor’s son, and well on my way to becoming a pastor’s wife, people often assume that I’m a super Christian. Which, of course, I am. I’m blessed to be a super Christian. When my eyes pop open in the morning, the first thing I see is our “This…

Okay, Fine. So Maybe I Can Be A Morning Person

By Victoria Easter Wilson / February 24, 2015 / 6 Comments

Historically, I’ve taken a bit of pride in the fact that I’m not a morning person. You know morning people. The ones that wake up at 5am with sick, Cinderella-esque glee. Pretty sure that bluebirds bring them a cup coffee. “Good morning, Darling! Lovely to see you looking so chipper!” Yeah. Those people. I’ve always been…

I Feel Entitled. Yuck.

By Victoria Easter Wilson / February 11, 2015 / 3 Comments

There’s no pretty way to admit this, so I’ll come right out and say it: I feel entitled. I’ve noticed the dissonance in my soul for months, but I’ve only recently put a name to it: entitlement. Some people feel entitled to things because of who they are. My entitlement is based more on what…

By Victoria Easter Wilson / February 5, 2015 / 3 Comments

After thinking long and hard, I finally happened upon a tagline that describes my intentions for this space. And by “thinking long and hard,” I mean polling my Facebook friends and Instagram followers. It was very scientific. Truthfully, it didn’t seem right to define my blog without y’all. Together, we happened upon this phrase: “Gut-writing…
