Ever lay in bed, starring up at the ceiling and questioning EVERYTHING? Yeah, me too. And while eventually I may overthink myself to sleep like little kids that cry themselves to sleep, I end up waking up feeling defeated. God's been working this out in me and I'm praying this is a timely message for SOMEBODY out there, too. Maybe you.Read More
Welcome to my online writing nook!
Transparency is fully practiced here.
I don't know what this is. Honestly, I struggle in being a perfectionist AND indecisive. Lord, help me. So providing that as some context, you could see why I wouldn't be lying to you when I confess that it takes me WEEKS to finish and PUBLISH a single blog post.

Am I the only that didn't jump on the "one word for the year" bandwagon for the last 6 or so years? I'll admit, I do jump on trends often.

However, this whole idea of no resolutions and one word, eh... it seemed "overly spiritualized" at first to me. But apparently, this entire "pick one word" thing...Read More
The Crystal Lee Williams blog was nominated for the Liebster Award! Many don't know that I've been blogging for 7 years!!! That's insane. All in all, life with God inspires me to blog, documenting every...Read More
Scripture reading: Luke 4:14-19 | Matthew 6:9-14
