Easter is one of my favorite holidays! I mean I simply love that we get to break out all the pretty spring colors and enjoy the sunshine after the long months of shaking from the cold; but more than that, we get to dance and sing our praises for the King of Kings, the Prince of Peace, the perfect Lamb, our Messiah IS RISEN!!! That concept alone sparks so much joy and hope in me. Holy week gives us...  Read More
Living Hope
by Devon McCoy on February 24th, 2021
For a few years I struggled with progressive, chronic pain. What started out as severe migraines led to me practically missing a semester of school, stepping down from some of the things that I loved, visits to numerous doctors with the weirdest specialties, and having days where I couldn’t be touched at times because the pain in my body was so severe. I have never contended for something in praye...  Read More
A Different World

If you know me at all, you know I LOVE discipleship. I love my girls and I have probably talked to you about how amazing they each are at some point or another. I also have had the privilege to be discipled by a number of incredibly powerful women, and I have learned something unique from each of them. I would not be who I am or where I am without each and every one of them. I truly believe there ...  Read More

Shame is loud, it demands to be seen; shame lingers; shame leaves a gross feeling with you the second you give in to it.  Shame is also sneaky and manipulative. Sometimes, you don’t even re...  Read More
The Law Hangs on Love

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” - Matthew 22: 38-40An important understanding to have when you read this scripture is that “your neighbor” goes beyond just the couple of people...  Read More
Breakthrough Begins with Intimacy
by Devon McCoy on October 7th, 2020
One of my favorite sayings that floats around Wesley is “prayer is simply talking to God.” I think about that phrase and the simplicity of it helps prayer become more freeing and less pressurized than I ever thought possible. A while ago I started to wonder how in the world I could let something that seems so easy become so convoluted and complicated. And to be perfectly honest I think those momen...  Read More
Unity in God
by Devon McCoy on September 3rd, 2020
Politics has always been a topic I hated because of the perception I had of it growing up. For my whole life, talk of politics led to intense anger, persecution, and screaming matches within my family. Therefore, this became the basis of what I knew politics to be and I began to shy away and become fearful of any conversations about them. I never wanted to insert my opinion on the matter because I...  Read More
