FINALLY! I have time and energy to update you all on my life. Well, as of about four weeks ago, I started a position at an online marketing company. If you've been following me on Instagram, you know that I'm working from home and having the time of my life. I can officially say, after … Continue reading Update for You!
"...You don't deserve me at my best." This saying was popular when I was in high school. In the days before memes, we had AIM icons, away messages, and MySpace graphics. The context in which this phrase was used when I was younger is for friends and relationships. It's hard being a teenager. If you … Continue reading “If you can’t love me at my worst…”
There's something within all of us that desires to go through it anyway. We desire to do the impossible, the scary, the dangerous. That's because we, like ships, were not created for "safe" lives. We were created to make a difference. We were created to glorify God by doing the impossible through His strength.

Anxiety makes it seem like whatever is … Continue reading You’re braver than you think

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?
I generally tend to be optimistic. However, in light of my optimism, people tell me that I'm sometimes unrealistic. And when people look at the negative side, they tend to tell me that they're just being realistic. One day, when I was in college, I looked outside and said, "Wow, it's a beautiful day outside. … Continue reading Pessimism is NOT Realistic!
Although I have focused on a word each year since I graduated from college, I haven't started documenting my words until last year. My word for 2019 is commit, based on Psalm 37:5 "Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act." I was going to explain to you what the word … Continue reading My Word for 2019
