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 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|

Post Women’s March, a pep rally commenced with the overlying question, “What do we do next?” According to the New York Times, Planned Parenthood held a training session for 2,000 organizers to give action plans for the upcoming year, with health care at the top of its list.

Building A Better Marriage (The New Year’s Resolution You Forgot)

By | January 19th, 2017|Categories: foundational truth|

“Once upon a time there were two countries, at war with each other. In order to make peace after many years of conflict, they decided to build a bridge across the ocean. But because they never learned each other’s language properly, they could never agree on the details, so the two halves of the bridge they [...]

Millenials, There’s Still Time For Us

By | January 12th, 2017|Categories: foundational truth|

Lately, I’ve heard a lot of talk about millenials. From an interview sinking its teeth throughout social media to message after message from our faith mentors at Passion 2017. It’s as if we have finally peeled back the generational layers enough to expose what's been happening over the past thirty years and it seems a bit [...]

How To Stop Believing in a Wimpy God

By | January 5th, 2017|Categories: The Word|

I recently had the opportunity to connect with a darling twenty-something friend who has left the church for this season (like many other twenty-somethings). She is exploring her world and making new friends. I was so grateful for the opportunity to squeeze her neck and connect with her, and like most grace encounters, I left learning [...]

Maybe you've already heard about The Year of Calling over at Imperfectly Brave, and maybe you haven't, but I wanted to let you know why I am so excited about walking through this with you for an entire year. Because I myself have struggled with understanding who I am as a daughter of Christ (and how [...]

The Gift I Am Most Excited About Giving This Year

By | December 18th, 2016|Categories: Uncategorized|

This year, I have one gift that I can hardly wait to give. I have at least a dozen presents under the tree, but this year there is one; one gift I am most excited about giving. A gift that will give all the other gifts more meaning, more life, more love. I am a complex [...]
