Hi, I’m Whitney!

Whitney is the founder of Imperfectly Brave and is passionate about creating a lifestyle out of prayer and community. She is the author of the book and curriculum, too. It’s no surprise that she is a dreamer (with two precious little girls) and a visionary (with a pastor husband who is beyond wonderful). She lives with her family in Liberty, Missouri, and attends a church near a peacock farm.

A Celebration of Spitfire Women

When Billy Graham died, the first thing I thought of was his wife’s poetry. I can recall countless times in college, crumpled in a ball on my bed, reading her words. I fell in love with neither Ruth nor Billy, but them together. I saw him as this faithful steward of the mysteries of God, and [...]

The Three Things Series: Part Three

I’m about to go radio silent and full swing into motherhood times three. To be terribly honest, I’m excited, as well as incredibly anxious. I can hardly wait to see what Connolly will look like and hold her in my arms. I feel as if we know each other so well know and yet not at [...]

The Three Things Series: Part Two

Lord willing, in exactly fifteen days, we will be in newborn la la land, holding our girl, Connolly Grey. A slow smile is creeping across my lips because I can hardly wait for that first moment of pulling her up to my chest. And let me simply slip a word of praise for new life – [...]

The Fight for Hope: Control Your Mind

I know what it’s like to dwell on the negative. In fact, I believe I have spent far too many minutes of 2017 dwelling on items that seem to be going poorly or the ones that feel impossible to change. These thoughts capture you too, don’t they? They seem to take us prisoner and hold us [...]

The Fight for Hope: A Necessary Heaven

The fight for hope comes with a fight for understanding heaven. But a necessary heaven seems elementary, doesn’t it? In fact, it’s the conversation that “saved” most of us. We wanted to go to heaven instead of hell, so we raised our hand or said a prayer and heaven became our prize. Or so we thought. [...]

The Fight For Hope: Obedience Over Comfort

The most practical way to fight for hope comes from the hardest journey and the most treacherous terrain – it’s a terrain of dying to self. And no one wants to walk through thick forest and rocky paths alone. No one wants to be cut from the inside, throw aside comfort and go the road of [...]

The Three Things I Know in the Fight for Hope

I am convinced of very few things in this life, the first being that Jesus lived and died to give us His life-saving blood. The second is that when every single thing is falling apart, is the exact moment when our eyes need to fix on the goal and we need to fight. The third is [...]

Why I’m Going to Be Quiet (and ways to keep in touch)

I teach being obedient to God on the internet, on my blog and when I speak at churches. He has asked me to move into a season of quiet (which seems terrifying when you have your biggest event of the year coming up in November). But His ways are not my ways. Many of you don't [...]

Dear sweet reader on the other end of this screen, please spend a few minutes letting the life of this women inspire you as well. And may it pierce [...]
