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 Honor of Suffering

By | October 11th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

I pulled out one of her drawers to begin organizing. Menial tasks can have such gospel implication when done through the law of love. After I separated the pens in the junk drawer, I opened her day planner from 2017. She could still write then. Her handwriting, a memento I never thought I’d treasure. Slowly I [...]

My counseling appointment (and other news)

By | August 21st, 2018|Categories: imperfectly brave|

Hi friend, I am writing this email to let you know I am headed to see a Christian counselor this week and I am thrilled about it. In the past year, I have endured watching my mom fight a wicked disease. I have had a baby (hello post-partum). I have started a second job (which I [...]

The Pastor’s Wife: Exposing Lies and Redeeming Them (Part Two)

By | July 13th, 2018|Categories: pastor's wife|

In Part One of our Pastor’s Wife series, we exposed four lies: don’t be anyone’s friend, don’t reveal your weaknesses, be available to everyone at all times, and my husband is important; I am not. There are more lies to explore and bring into the light. Though they are worth our time and effort, they may come with [...]

The Pastor’s Wife: Exposing Lies and Redeeming Them (Part One)

By | July 13th, 2018|Categories: pastor's wife|

I’ve believed many lies throughout my life. Different stages led to different misconceptions - some more detrimental than others. When I was a young brunette living in the bay area of California, I believed everyone had the Golden Gate Bridge in her backyard. I took advantage of a view many never get to see, which led [...]

A Celebration of Spitfire Women

By | March 27th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

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

By | February 22nd, 2018|Categories: foundational truth|

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

By | February 15th, 2018|Categories: foundational truth|

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 Three Things Series: Part One

By | February 8th, 2018|Categories: foundational truth|

Many of you know my story and I’m so happy you do. I believe we must have some sort of connection in order to walk well together. After all, deep connection with one another is one of life’s greatest gifts. If you are new to this space, I’m Whitney. I am a pastor’s wife who is [...]

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. [...]
