What is Substance Over Shadows?
Colossians 2:16-17 – “Therefore [since your life has been made alive in Christ] let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. These things are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ.”
Substance Over Shadows* is a collaborative blog by Christ-following women who are uniquely wired and gifted in ways that enjoy different elements of the “shadows” cast by God.
This site isn’t specific to homemakers or intellectuals or hipsters or foodies (or Pinterest addicts). Just by women, for women.
Substance Over Shadows seeks to bring glory to God in the public sharing of our thoughts, experiences, passions, and gifts in the brilliant shadows cast by our glorious, gracious, and good Creator.
May you be edified and Christ be glorified.
Love to you.
*Title inspired (taken) from a sermon from The Village Church in Texas from November 2011.
