God has blessed this broken vessel with the opportunity to serve Him not only in spite of my past failures but through those failures for His glory. You can read more about my journey from “useless” to “useful” in my testimony and through the posts on this blog.
It is my passion to share with women of all ages the hope I have found through living a life rooted in the Word of God. My life was transformed when I began to understand that Christianity is not a religion with a bunch of “To-Don’t” Lists. God desires to be intimately involved in every facet of our lives, not just our church attendance on Sunday mornings. There is so much out there in the world today screaming at women who we are to be and what we are to do that we often miss the still, small voice of the One who created us. It is my desire to teach other women what how to dig into God’s message to His children so that we can each individually learn who He created us to be.
I use this blog as a chance to keep up with friends and family spread across the world, to share deep thoughts from other people, and to work out some of my own observations about the world around us. I have discovered that writing helps me process my thoughts and keeps me thinking. Hopefully you will find some things here that will get you thinking about the important things in life.
I have a passion to challenge people to view their Christianity not as a portion of their lives, but as the lens through which they should view all aspects of their lives. Our stances on politics, education, culture, family, work, recreation, etc., should all be considered in light of what we believe about Scripture and what that Scripture tells us about the world around us.
I love to speak and write concerning current events and timeless topics related to women’s issues. If you are interested in learning more about this ministry and how I might be able to serve your church, school or other ministry, please e-mail me at bekahmason (dot) 517 @ gmail (dot) com.
I came upon your blog on anger in the church. I won’t say by accident because I don’t believe in them. It touched me deeply. God works in mysterious ways doesn’t he? I never realized that the very church I felt led to may be the mission field in itself. I guess I always considered the people in church with me Christians. This definitely gives me a lot to think about. Thank you. God Bless.
Thank you so much for the encouraging comment! the idea that our churches are a mission field is challenging and convicting. It should remind us that we are to be salt and light no matter where we are. There’s no time off when we are Christ’s ambassadors.

Hi, Bekah, oh, what a wonderful introduction I have just experienced reading about the Boundless Treasures Ministry. I thank God for using you in such a powerful way. This ministry is you up one side and down the other. I generally do not have the time to go on Facebook at home and it’s blocked here at work. So I just wanted to tell you that I will be lifting you up and thanking the Lord for the wonderful way he has molded your life! Much love, sister! J
This was an amazing devotion. My Pastor just preached on Ps. 22 this past Sunday. Love the depth of this devotion. Thank you for being used of the Lord through this gift of writing and communicating His truth through that gift.
Thank you, Renee, for your encouraging words! I pray you have a blessed weekend as we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord!
I found you through Sayable.net. I like this “About Bekah” section, esp this sentence “I have a passion to challenge people to view their Christianity not as a portion of their lives, but as the lens through which they should view all aspects of their lives.” Exactly! Amen 🙂
I will be bookmarking you! 🙂
I can’t thank you enough for writing that article on Christian Today on what it’s like to be Christian who also experiences same-sex attraction. It deeply spoke to my experience and gave me a clear answer that all other articles on the subject failed to do.
I’ve had crushes on boys ever since I was little and have always looked forward to my future husband. In middle school, I had my first crush on a girl and in high school, I had strong feelings for one of my friends. It was hard to comprehend at the time, I had just been saved at 16. Just recently, now in college, I have found myself attracted to a girl I work with and it’s been hard to work through those feelings. I’ve had non-Christian friends tell me that I’m bisexual and that I should embrace it and I’ve had Christian friends who are left speechless and are not sure how to respond. Your article is not only helpful to those like me but to those like my friends who may want to support me but may not know how to.
Because my identity is rooted in Christ, I know that identifying as bisexual isn’t crucial nor fulfilling. I know that the Holy Spirit is helping me to become more like Christ every day and I know that God is good and will honor my faithfulness. Sin has definitely twisted everything that God intended to be perfect, even sexuality in itself. If I continue to look at it as sin, and at the same time acknowledge that the power, discipline, and peace of the Spirit is always available, I’m still able to walk in God’s purposes for my life. I’m benefitted greatly from how the Word differentiates between conviction and condemnation.
There was a newcomer to my campus ministry the past week who said he couldn’t go to church because he’s gay. And my heart was broken in knowing that he had been hurt by the church before. Like when Jesus spoke to the accused woman, I said “Who said that you’re not allowed? If it’s true that you’re not allowed, neither is the person that steals, or the person who cheats, or the person who lusts, envies, hates. If that’s true then none of us should be here, not even me. If I’m welcome here then you are too.”
Thank you for sharing your story! It takes a lot of guts to see it, name it, and learn how to walk in Christ’s victory over our sin.
I’ll be praying for you, and for this guy you met who was hurt in church. Maybe he’ll give Church a second chance after seeing Jesus’ love in you and others around you. Blessings!
