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.

When You Can’t Sing Great Is Thy Faithfulness

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

On Sunday our worship leader led us in a familiar song, “Great is Thy Faithfulness” and big, hot tears rolled down my cheeks. I could taste each tear as they ran inward toward my lips, either being caught by the corner of my mouth, or by my dress below. I couldn’t sing the words. I couldn’t [...]

Women In The Word: Let’s Hear From You

By | March 21st, 2017|Categories: Uncategorized|

Women in the Word, I want to hear from you. Each week I watch my redheaded husband preach an incredible sermon from our little white church’s pulpit. He unpacks the Word of God with His flock and He kindly shepherds us through our valleys and mountains. For years He’s preached a message, theologically sound and convicting, [...]

When Your Husband Isn’t The Spiritual Leader of Your Home

By | March 14th, 2017|Categories: biblical leadership, culture|

About a month ago, I spoke at a local church, and as I always do, I focused on getting into the Word of God and how it is the game-changer. While I was unpacking how to create space for this, I felt pause in my spirit. Without taking a breath I said, “Some of you are [...]

On Self-Promotion, Staying Stuck and Our Callings

By | March 7th, 2017|Categories: culture|

To the Christian woman who believes she is called to something (anything) and feels like she doesn’t want to step in for fear of making much of herself – this is for you. One of my favorite parts of my job is to sit with women and hear their hearts and how they are feeling called. [...]

Jesus Is Better Than Your Dreams

By | February 28th, 2017|Categories: foundational truth, The Word|

To dream is the fulfillment of our imaginations and minds, gifts and talents, callings and longings all intricately woven together. We were born dreamers as Christ image-bearers because all of humanity is longing for something better; people aching for the idealistic romance of dreams fulfilled – heaven. This talk of dreams has been one appropriately placed [...]

A Prayer For When You Are Feeling Stuck

By | February 21st, 2017|Categories: prayer|

Dear Lord, I can’t imagine you ever wanting your daughter to feel stuck in this one precious life. Suffer, yes. Worn-out, of course. Weak, absolutely. But stuck? Why would your heart ever desire that your daughter feel stuck when you are a God of unlimited resources? When out of you flows streams of living water and [...]

When Your Family Needs A New Brave

By | February 16th, 2017|Categories: foundational truth|

My family is spread across the continental United States. It is part of being in the ministry and partly because our dad taught us at an early age to say yes to adventure. Yes to being brave and bold and trying new things. Let’s be adventurers, darling. And yes, every one in my family said yes. [...]

Confessions of a Brand New Seminary Student

By | February 9th, 2017|Categories: foundational truth, seminary, The Word|

As a brand new seminary student, I'm quickly realizing I am in over my head. The Word of God is so complex and full of rich languages, contextual passages and histories that would keep us studying for the rest of our lives. Praise God I come home on Monday nights and feel inundated with information, acutely [...]

Bowing with the Outcast, Rising in Resurrection

By | February 2nd, 2017|Categories: culture, foundational truth|

This is different from where I normally go when I share here, but I can't get her out of my mind. I'm finding myself on the streets with her. My right shoulder is brushing up against her left one. She’s slightly hunched over so I stand a bit taller than her, but our hearts; our hearts [...]

By | January 26th, 2017|Categories: culture, foundational truth|
