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.

The Fight for Hope: Control Your Mind

By | December 14th, 2017|Categories: biblical leadership|

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

By | November 30th, 2017|Categories: foundational truth|

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

By | November 22nd, 2017|Categories: biblical leadership, foundational truth|

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

By | November 16th, 2017|Categories: biblical leadership, foundational truth|

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)

By | August 15th, 2017|Categories: biblical leadership, intimacy with God|

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 [...]

Today I’m Going to a Funeral

By | August 8th, 2017|Categories: foundational truth, imperfectly brave|

On Friday, August 4, 2017, a beautiful, godly woman was embraced in the arms of Jesus. Fern Frick, thank you for inspiring me to write Imperfectly Brave. 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 [...]

How I’m Praying for My Pre-schooler

By | July 24th, 2017|Categories: foundational truth, prayer|

She’s recently discovered imaginary friends, actually an imaginary family to be exact. Her caterpillar family lives in her princess tent to the left side of her room. She puts them to sleep at night and sometimes her caterpillar mom needs certain items brought to her (what a luxury), which means the caterpillar home becomes quite [...]

When You’re Tired And Want To Give Up

By | July 18th, 2017|Categories: foundational truth|

She was secure in herself, her God and her calling. I repeat, she was secure in herself, her God and her calling. And no light calling it was. She believed she was the woman to lead the French to win the war versus England in the 1400s. She was a nobody from nowhere. And a teenager [...]
