Last week, I wrote about abandoning your to-do list and giving God full control of your day. Did you try it? How did it go? At the time of writing this post, it's been six days since I've let God rewrite my to-do list. For one, I feel much more peace and joy. I'm disgusted … Continue reading What happens when you abandon your to-do list?
Intimacy with God is made possible through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit. We are able to draw near to God when we accept Jesus' sacrifice as truth, because we now have the righteousness of Christ. A couple of weeks ago, I read Tauren Wells' devotional on the YouVersion … Continue reading Intimacy with God
A few weeks ago, I shared how we should start our years off on the same page as our spouse. We don't have to be the same person, but we do have to make an effort to compromise and share goals with each other. The best way to get on the same page as your … Continue reading Start with Me
At the beginning of this year, I made a commitment to lose weight that I've gained over the past couple of years. Since starting (and finishing!) the 21-Day Fix from Beachbody, I've been able to not only shed some pounds, but shed some bad habits as well. My anxiety stems from emytophobia and agoraphobia. Although … Continue reading How Exercise Has Helped My Anxiety
Preparing for your marriage is vital for success. During engagement, you and your betrothed are laying the foundation for the rest of your marriage. If you get off on the wrong foot, of course, God is still able to help you and heal you. But while you have the tools now, why wait until things get worse … Continue reading Preparing for Marriage

I’m so thankful for the opportunity from Faithwords to read this book for free! I’ve enjoyed the other books that they’ve recommended … Continue reading Beyond Blessed: Give Your Budget a Heart Check
You may be wondering how Lenny feels about me writing about our marriage. Do you really think that I'm venting about my husband without his permission? On this blog, I really don't talk about deep issues in our marriage. I don't believe an online platform is the place to do that. As a matter of … Continue reading Be a Team Player
I'm working on my manuscript for my novel again, but thanks to the retreat I attended two weeks ago, I have some more direction. Here are some of the Bible verses that are inspiring me through this process. I will write more about my actual novel on Friday. When I was a kid, my mom would … Continue reading In Our Own Eyes
Why do we have so many fights with our spouses? Why do we keep having the same arguments over and over again? Because we don't want to let it go. I could stop right there. But I don't want to let it go. I want to hold on to my anger, my hurt, my rightness. My … Continue reading The Beauty of Letting Go
Without those difficult people in my life, I would have never grown, at least in the ways that I have. I've had people criticize my writing, attack my joy, and call me out for my pride. I can't believe that years later, I'm still thinking of the people that have hurt me, and the ways they have blessed my life.
