Remember the days when Facebook was a fun place to "meet up" with friends, stalk your crush (don't even act like you never did that! lol), write on someone's wall to tell them how much you miss them? Remember when it was a place for staying connected with friends who were too far to see … Continue reading sharing on social media: share hope
I often find myself laughing about how wrong I was in the direction I thought my life would take and how wrong I was in what I thought I wanted. Of the many blessings that the Lord has so graciously lavished over me, community would have to be one of the areas I feel the … Continue reading outfit highlight: Alice
I've found myself joking a lot about how I'm holding off on getting my citizenship until after the elections in case I need to flee back to my home country. But as with anything, the more I joke about it, the more I begin to really ask myself- "where IS your heart in all of … Continue reading on politics: where is your heart?
Since starting my practicum this semester I've learned some huge things about myself. I went in anticipating and even praying for God to change my heart as I walked into this "new" area of life. I knew that getting to sit in a room with someone and being present as they let me into their … Continue reading counselor’s chair: What I’m Learning
It's been a LONG minute. I couldn't even begin to express all that has been happening in my life. although I can't necessarily make up for lost time, everything that I'm learning this year (thus far) can be summarized in one word.

Single. Yep. That I am. But you best believe I'm much more than that. Whether I'm with someone or not doesn't change the fact that I am whole(made that way in Christ). Being single (or in a relationship for that matter) has never been the status of my human existence nor has it ever been … Continue reading THE problem
How in the world does one begin to slow things down in a time of year that is known for being the busiest? I got to Thursday this week, and I can honestly say that I had no idea how I got there-how I did all that I did that week, how I drove myself … Continue reading slow down
I love praying out loud while in my car driving from one place to another. For some reason, in the “safety” of my car I feel the most vulnerable and yet powerful in the way I pray. For some odd reason, being in that piece of metal makes me feel safe enough to cry, scream, … Continue reading prayer car
Ever looked back on times and wonder "how did I ever have the faith to get through that?" Well, the answer is simply- The Lord. Seriously, I think of the crazy times when I've been able to step out in faith and refuse to believe anything other than what God has promised, and there is NO other … Continue reading Where did all that faith come from?
