One of the things I enjoy doing is reading back through old journals of mine. Sometimes I laugh at them just because I can be an idiot sometimes, and sometimes I cry at them because God uses previous things He has said to me or I have said to me to speak to me. I… Continue reading Wisdom from Freshman me.
This is a poem I wrote on Christmas Eve. I originally wrote it with one person in mind, but as I prayed over it, God had someone else in mind. I was just sitting in the living room with my mom and a friend, and in the middle of the conversation, God said, "Her. Quick.… Continue reading That Twinkle in Your Eye
Before I type anything to make a new blog post, WordPress tells me, "Share your story here...." My story about the last two weeks is long and really isn't worth sharing. There is probably a lot I could tell you, but rather I am going to leave you with a short encouraging note. Do you… Continue reading Trust is an ongoeing decision.
Despite the things I've been through and the things I've put myself through, the Grace of God has been on my life, and I cannot help but love Him. There are times where God should have turned His back on me and walked away, but He didn't. He promised to never leave us, and unlike… Continue reading Look, God is good. See it. Taste it. Know it. Even if you have to look for it, God is good.

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as… Continue reading The Beginning of Something Wonderful
The last word I would choose for describing my summer is family. As far as I am aware, this was my last summer at home. This is not saying I'll never be home over the summer months. It means that it will be a while before I am home for as long as three months.… Continue reading End of Summer pt. 3
I'm not gonna lie. I began the summer stressed out expecting terrible things to happen. I had a very limited perspective and low expectations for a happy summer. Because of this, all I saw were negative things and was constantly snippy. I acted immature and irrational about a lot of things. Sometimes these emotions were… Continue reading End of Summer pt. 2
I've said it before and I'll say it again: If I had to describe summer in one word, it would be trust. Once again I find myself reminding myself to trust God. The skin on my hands are peeling from being stressed. All of my 'stuff' covers the rear window of Mother's car. Some how… Continue reading End of Summer pt. 1
