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.

Today I’m Going to a Funeral

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

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. [...]

What the Whole 30 Is Teaching Me

I think about food. A lot. I take pictures of my food. I scroll through food blogs and drool unashamedly. I run so I can eat food. I try new recipes and never hesitate when it comes to something sweet after a meal. Some of my very best memories are around the table, good food, good [...]

Praying the B Word

“Uncertainty as to our relationship with God is one of the most enfeebling and dispiriting of things. It makes a man heartless. It takes the pith out of him. He cannot fight. He cannot run. He is easily dismayed and gives way. He can do nothing for God. But when we know that we are of [...]

What I’m Praying for Holy Week

This Holy Week, I’m fully convinced if we understood more of who God is, and how much He loves us our lives would change dramatically. Not just our eternal lives, but our lives in the “dirt-under-our-feet” and “roofs-over-our head” lives. But we often temper God’s qualities. Case in point: could God’s love actually cover all of [...]
