Taking A Blogging Break

Taking a Blogging Break

After much prayer and consideration, I’ve decided to take a little blogging break. Last week, I shared a little bit of what’s been going on in my life lately and the encouragement I’ve been getting from God’s Word. With BSF starting back up & life at work being extra crazy due to extra responsibilities being […]

10 Verses I Need This Season In My Life

10 Verses I Need This Season In My Life

In different seasons in your life, it’s good to have a stash of verses to keep in your pocket to remind you of God’s promises. Especially in those seasons where life just seems like it’s in limbo. A season very common with people who are single & in their 20s! A little bit of what’s […]

Hello My Name Is Martha

Hello My Name is Martha

You know that panic-stricken moment when a friend calls & tells you she’s on her way to “drop by” for a visit and your house is a complete mess. Sure! You’d love for her to stop by, but in a perfect world, you need her to be stuck in traffic for at least 4 hours […]

God’s Still, Small Voice

God's Still, Small Voice

So much mess is going on around us these days! Is it just me or does it seem like there’s constantly something catastrophic being featured on the news? I mean, I know that chaos has been going on for quite some time now, but does it seem like the chaos has gone up a notch […]

Mondays: A Gift From God

Mondays A Gift From God

Oh hello there, Monday! Mondays have such a bad rap. Bless its heart! Coming right after a nice, relaxing weekend then getting thrown back into the daily grind can be hard. We often tend to look at Mondays as an unfortunate event that somehow keeps occurring every single week. Often we hear the sounds “Ugh”, “Arg”, […]

Still I Will Praise Him

Still I Will Praise Him

Can I be real with you today? Let’s just go ahead, brew a nice cup of tea, grab a blanket if you’re feeling chilly and have some real talk. Lately, I’ve been struggling a lot with my anxiety. Not the kind of anxiety where you’re like: “Oh I can see why you would be anxious […]

Questioning Our Faith

Questioning Our Faith

I’ve been reading this book by Tullian Tchividjian called Surprised by Grace: God’s Relentless Pursuit of Rebels. It’s so good, I would definitely recommend it! But one day while I was reading a chapter, agreeing whole heartedly every word the author wrote, a question randomly popped up in my head. “Ok, but why do you believe […]

How BSF Changed My Life

How BSF Changed My Life

It was Fall 2011, I was fresh out of college, settling into my life as an “adult,” had a great boyfriend and great friends, and yet, I found myself in a spiritual funk. I felt like my faith had just plateaued and it wasn’t sitting well with me. So I decided to have a real, […]

5 Things I’ve Learned at an Early Age

5 Things I Learned At An Early Age

I’m so grateful to be brought up the way I was. I was raised in a loving home by both my mom & dad. Brought up in the church (even beyond that because I was a preacher’s kid). Life had its ups and downs as most do, but from all that, there is this beautiful […]

5 Ways to Spread Kindness During Controversy

5 Ways to Spread Kindness in Controversy

DISCLAIMER: By no means am I trying to make light of all that’s going on in our world today. I’m just completely exhausted by the social media vomit that goes on every time a news story breaks. I know we can’t fix everything with a smile & a handshake, but sometimes it’s the little things […]
