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…

SLIPPING AWAY

I’ve always wanted to be completely honest with you, so here I am, admitting that I haven’t read my Bible in a few weeks. I feel so distant from it, that I couldn’t even come up with a good blog topic for this week. Yes, I have been busy. Yes, I have been traveling. But…

I’M DREAMING TOO SMALL

I had a conversation with my dad earlier this week that went a little like this… DAD: You never know, you could start your own PR company one day. ME: Nah. Seems simple, done. Right? The reason I said that was not because I don’t want to put in that much work or I don’t…

TO FREELY GIVE

Generosity is always a topic that is winced upon and glazed over. Asking anyone to give of their money or time seems to be like pulling teeth. Yet, God demands our generosity. He asks us to give not so that we would be without so that he can provide more abundantly for us. I’m actually…

AN EFFORT TO END HATE

Last week I wrote on an effort for peace. While I did not intend for it to be a series, here we are. In light of recent events in my hometown, Cincinnati, I feel like it’s something that is almost impossible for me not to talk about. We are in a day and age where…
