WHY CHURCH IS STILL RELEVANT

Within the past few years, I’ve noticed a lot of people my age irritated at the concept of “church.” I’m not talking about people who aren’t Christians, but people who follow Jesus. There has been a revolt against the idea of the capital C Church. The concept of a church led under one person with…

RUSHING TO THE END

Do you ever just feel like you are constantly trying to catch up? Right when you land that awesome new job, find a great guy, or finish school, someone else is already promoted, engaged, or just that one step ahead of you… As frustrating as it is, that’s kind of the point of life. It’s…

A DIFFERENT VIEW

It’s so easy to get flustered when something isn’t going your way. Getting annoyed that you can’t seem to tone your body after going to the gym twice is silly, but it happens. Getting irritated that traffic never seems to end after work because you want to go home and put on your PJs is…

LISTENING FOR GOD

Imagine you’re at a party in which you barely know anyone there and you can’t leave. That is my worst nightmare. I tend to panic before large events where there will be people I don’t frequently talk to. I used to think that it was just because I was super socially awkward and that it…

THE NECESSITY OF PEOPLE

As I am sitting in front of a screen writing this, I have another, smaller, screen right next to me. This is typically how most of us spend our days. Whether it’s work, a hobby, or the television… we are always in front of a screen. In the same way, we are always in front…

THE PRESSURE OF NEW

After seeing dozens (or hundreds) of New Year’s posts… the concept can become a little daunting. Your cousin’s friend was already to the gym (every day this week) and your sister has already meal prepped for next week and cleaned out her house. The panic may begin to set in that you’ve already backtracked or…

WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGES

Tomorrow is the day… college graduation. Christmas is already a time where we can feel the air changing, getting prepared for a new year to begin. For some reason, adding graduation on top of all the change has filled me with an anxiety I can’t quite conquer this week. I’ve found myself frozen stiff at…

LIGHT OF THE WORLD, RETURN

As I have probably stated a million times before, Christmas is my favorite time of the year. The lights, the warmth, spending time with the people you love most, and peppermint! It really can’t get any better. The other reason I love Christmas is so much is the concepts of Jesus that are preached during…

THE BIGGEST MISTAKE

Christians tend to do this one specific thing that absolutely grates my nerves. I, myself, have done it. In fact, even in this current season of my life, I am doing it! Christians tend to sit around and wait for God to smack them in the face with their “purpose” or “destiny.” We wait for…

STAYING IN LOVE

I can recall the moment I knew I was in love with Jon so vividly. I was simply watching him do what God had called him to do in that season and I knew I wanted to be aligned with him for as long as I could. I can also recall the moment I truly…
