And At Last I’ve Seen the Lights

For as long as I can remember I have been mesmerized by nature. Specifically the mountains, trees, and the sky. When I was a kid I had a dream that the I was able to see the Northern Lights from my house in South Carolina. I remember waking up and wishing it would be able … Continue reading And At Last I’ve Seen the Lights

30,000 feet above the earth

As I was heading to Banff, Canada last week I was looking out the window to the clouds and scenery. At first there weren't many clouds, but we then got to a place that all you could see in any direction were these beautiful white clouds. In the moment I thought to myself, "Wow, that's … Continue reading 30,000 feet above the earth

Procrastinate no more!

For the most part, whenever it comes to finals week I am cramming in my final paper over the last day or two of class. Which stresses me out. However, something happened last week and I started getting my assignments finished before they were due. This week is the final week of classes and I … Continue reading Procrastinate no more!

wanderlust.

Over the past few weeks all I can think about is going places. It isn't that I don't love those around me, it's just that there is so much of this great big world that I have yet to explore. I also think part of it is because I'm in the final two weeks of … Continue reading wanderlust.

So much has changed, and initially I thought it was all for the worse, but then that tiny voice in my head said, “No child, I will take this and make your future better than it would have been.” You see, when you get … Continue reading Keep Moving Forward

Let’s Go!

Eugene Peterson was a man of God. And he transformed the way that I viewed the Bible. Once I read The Message paraphrase, my eyes were opened to the Bible in a way that I never thought possible. I was able to understand what God was saying through His written word. He authored many books, and recently I read Five Smooth Stones for Pastoral Work and I wrote a review on the book that I want to share with you. Click to read more...

Are you grieving?

The featured image is a quote from my book, Handwriting: God's Heart, My Hand, and I wrote it before I had fully experienced freedom from grief. Over the past few weeks I have noticed many people posting things about grief such as: you will always be grieving... it just looks different, or you never get … Continue reading Are you grieving?
