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
We aren't the best at this. We meaning you. We meaning me, too. Christians. Non-Christians. Young people. Older people. Males. Females.
We often fail to be h o n e s t.
Recently, I had a friend approach me to ask me for help....Read More
This isn't a serious or deep "5 Secrets to a Godly Marriage" blog post. It's simple and relaxed. Not to mention, it's from the perspective of two young adults that fell in love and said "I do" not that long ago. Marriage teaches you things. And here are just but a few things of what my husband and I have learned so far...Read More
It's March. Two years ago this month I started this blog. In many ways - I have fallen short since then. In many ways - I have celebrated numerous victories since then! Big and small.So, I dare say it again: it's March. Let's bring up those New Year Resolutions...Read More
Let's talk about waiting, because we all do it. Sometimes waiting isn't that bad, right? You really want that top that goes well with those jeans in your closet, so you willingly wait in the long line at Old Navy to purchase said top. You are surrounded by others who are clearly okay with the wait too as they also have found an item they can't leave the store without. Or you really need that cup of joe to energize you before your 8 a.m. meeting so the wait at the Starbucks drive-thru line is worth it as long as the caramel macchiato with 2 extra shots of expresso gets in your hands just like you ordered it.....Read More
Am I the only one who thought Christmas Day felt... weird? It was HOT. We winged it. It was far from 'traditional'. Our Christmas Lunch was re-heated leftovers. Decorations were scarese. And our house STILL smells like smoke. Gross. (Keep reading for full story.) 7:30 am came quick on Christmas Day after staying up with my family for Christmas Eve and opening presents. As you know, Christmas Day fell on a Sunday, of course, and a church service was to be had! Sundays are work days. Though with great joy we gladly serve the Lord each Sunday and don't look at it as our "job" but as a privilege, it still technically is...Read More
You could say I'm an adventurer/thrill seeker. I'm not a home body and I hardly say 'no' to a spontaneous idea. It's important I share that because I am now going to tell you about my (at times, possibly maybe obsessive...) commitment to all things* social media.*Minus SnapChat....Read More
Happy Thursday! [Pretend with me it's still Thursday if you read this on any other day.]
I decided to dig up my old blog sites today and that journey through memory lane felt just like opening up one of my previous journals and getting lost in old experiences, words, prayers, pleas, dreams, aspirations and joys. This particular blog is from way back in 2012, when I was very single, very freshly out of college and very unsure as to what on earth my life would be just 4 years later! So here you go...Read More
[I'm not with child. Sorry if you thought that's what this was all about! Ha!] Growing a family is an exciting thing, I'm sure. However, at this time Calvin and I are experiencing and witnessing growth in a lot of other different yet exciting ways. So let's get you all up to speed on all that's happening because it's too good not to share …and there’s pictures!Read More
The start of a blog is always strange to me.
Do I throw in a joke now and get creative to keep you reading instead of just taking the whole 'let me start by telling you a little bit about us' approach? Or should I throw in a statistic about church planting and begin laying down the facts and start on a more serious note to ensure you this blog is worth your time?Read More
