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: 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 [...]

How I’m Praying for My Pre-schooler

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

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 [...]

The Unlikely Ways We Handle A Deep Sadness

We will all suffer deep loss eventually. A time in our lives where a sadness hangs like a thick fog over a valley, weighty at one glance, but somehow one wades through the fog. That’s what we do, right? We keep moving forward through the fog because the fog allows for movement. The world requires movement. [...]

I’ve Been Expecting You

I don’t know her age because I don’t think a number represents her well. It’s been well over a year now that she befriended me and I can’t quite remember why she did in the first place. But I am grateful that at one point she slipped her well-worn hand in mine and whispered into my [...]

Where My Girls At? (a talent roll call)

I recently spoke at a women’s conference and asked women to look at one another, eyeball to eyeball, and say one thing they are good at to the person sitting next to them. At first, they giggled at me, but that nervous laughter quickly subsided when they realized no more Mrs. Nice Teacher. I meant business. [...]
