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 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 [...]

When You Can’t Sing Great Is Thy Faithfulness

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 [...]

Jesus Is Better Than Your Dreams

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 [...]

When Your Family Needs A New Brave

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

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 [...]
