"So, Elizabeth, now that you're back. How was your semester? We're all curious since you quit communicating with us." Yeah, I am so sorry about that. I'm back now. I'll be keeping in touch with everyone pretty regularly since I'm on break. I can't guarantee that'll carry on into next semester, but I'll try. Now,… Continue reading Semester Recap
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.

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
Habits are not Addictions. Like wise, Addictions are not habits. They can not be broken or overcome in the same way. I want this to be made very clear. "Oh, I'm so addicted to coffee!" No, you are not addicted to coffee. You just have a habit of drinking it every morning. Besides, you wouldn't… Continue reading Habits Vs. Addictions
