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…

THANKFUL FOR IT ALL

Thanksgiving is such a sweet time of year. It allows us to remember what we’ve been blessed with and what we truly appreciate and love. Plus, who doesn’t love the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and some pumpkin cheesecake!? I pray that my friends and family know how thankful I am for them every single day. But…

A NEW STORM

I have a very special guest writer this week- my beautiful sister! Lexi is one of the wisest people I know and has always had her head on straight. I knew she could inspire you all in a way that maybe I couldn’t. So here is her fabulous writing encouraging you all that no matter…

DOUBTING YOUR GREATNESS

Anyone have those days where you honestly feel on par with Beyonc√© and then the next day you feel as useless as a stale Twinkie? I hit those kinds of highs and lows on a week to week basis. This week I accomplished some really amazing stuff at work but then I got home and…

WINTER IS COMING

Yeah… I know. I’m going to immediately get dissed for this title because it’s a Game of Thrones thing. But I’ll be real… no clue what this means. We all have a “seasonal slump.” Whether it’s directly related to the cold or it’s just a metaphor for a time in your life, we have all…

A SENSE OF COMMUNITY

How many times have you heard the terms, “tribe, squad, besties, group,” etc. in your life… or even today? American culture has this weird thing where we really promote being a part of something but we also really promote individualism. There is always this argument of, “Do I stay at home and bath and pretend…

A LESSON FROM THE LADIES

My favorite person to hear from in the Bible is Jesus, of course. He never acted out of God’s will… He was kind, He was caring, He was wise. If one person from the Bible could come and have dinner with me- I’d pick Jesus in a heartbeat. But sometimes… it’s nice to hear from…
