Jars of Clay
If I had to pick a chapter of Scripture to be my "life chapter" (is that a thing?), it would be 2 Corinthians 4. That fact might seem obvious to you if you've hung around my blog for some time. I mean, the title of my blog is Extraordinary Treasure, Ordinar...

City of Stars (Be Brave, Part 5)
Okay, okay I finally watched La La Land last night. I'm sure I'm the only person on the planet who hadn't seen it. I loved it! And, a discussion of the main themes of the movie seems a fitting close to my Be Brave series. For the few of you who haven't seen...

The Story of Jarena Lee (Be Brave, Part 4)
Because it's the last week of school, I haven't really had time to blog. But, God keeps bringing me new stories of brave Christian men and women. I couldn't help but share this story of Jarena Lee. As the first African American female preacher of the Gospel...

Rahab, More Than a Prostitute (Be Brave, Part 3)
What picture comes to your mind when you think of a person who is brave? Who comes to mind when you think of a person who does great things for God? Do you think of a great saint or famous Christian leader? It's funny how sometimes our picture of who God us...

Go! And, I will show you... (Be Brave, Part 1)
In our first 8 years of marriage, David and I moved 7 times. 7 times in 8 years!! (Thankfully, the last 8 years we've stayed in one place. Praise Jesus!) Every time was hard and presented its own set of challenges. There is a good reason why "change in livi...

Be Brave
Every year I try to pick a word or a phrase that is my theme for the year. This year my phrase is "Be Brave!". And, as He always does, God has continued to make this a thread through my life this year. I attended a writer's retreat in February and as a gift...

Today, I'm on my blog discussing my Enneagram Type. Join me!
"Mentally, I know that my relationship with God is only dependent on His love for me and His grace that covers all. But, in my heart, I constantly believe the lie that I am not worthy of His love unless I do XYZ. When I look in the mirror, I often only see the failures and if I don't, on a daily basis, preach to my own soul that I am worth it, that I am loved and that I don't have to strive to measure up to be wanted by God; I will get stuck on the hamster wheel of constant striving. And, man does that wheel get exhausting."

Hi, I'm Rebecca and I'm a Perfectionist
One of the things I've done as I've been working on my writing, is try to learn more about how my personality affects my writing. I've done a lot of research in this area but the one thing that has helped me the most is to learn my Enneagram type. (To take ...
