When Everything Changes

I wake up to rays of sun spilling over my pillow and unfamiliar furniture standing guard in the corners of this tiny room. Slowly I shake the fog of sleep from my mind and reality comes into focus, like that of a photo with no depth of field and colors that blend from the background…

“How do I delete my account?”

I was never one that simply had no social media. I’m pretty sure there was a time that I was on every platform possible and posted more than I probably ever needed to. Social media was my lifeline for a while, it was the way I connected with friends once moving from Virginia and quickly…

worth it

Beloved, recklessly loved, just because someone doesn’t recognize your value or worth in the way you desire doesn’t strip you of the worth Jesus has declared over you. Before I continue, I am SO guilty of this. I am so guilty of writing myself off or feeling unworthy when others I like decide to pursue…

Lulled to Complacency

We are complacent people. We are unconcerned, unimpressed, and halfhearted when it comes to our walks with the Lord. We get so wrapped up in self that we overlook God moving here and now. So it was no surprise to me that when I looked up the definitions of complacent and complacency that all the…

Without Resolution

It’s that time of year where everyone is found reflecting; looking at the beginning of the year compared to where we are now & remembering all that God has done. This year was one of thanksgiving, healing, & truly a “new” me. I know that is the typical cheesy saying when a new year hits,…

Seasonal Beauty

This was a Sunday afternoon for me and in this small time zipping around mountain roads, I was reminded of our seasons in this life. I was reminded of the…

Answered Prayers

An open letter to Quads 29/31: Friends, I am completely blessed by y’all! If I had a nickel for every time I thought of how thankful I am for y’all, I’d be able to pay off my student loans! If I had a flower for every time I was blessed by y’all’s friendship and joy,…

Happy, Healthy, Strong

Last year I started my health journey in full swing of motion. I vowed that I would not gain the freshman fifteen and set out to make this goal a reality. I cleaned up my eating habits, pinned all the health pins, and started hitting the gym regularly. It was tough and I didn’t always…

Arms Stretched Wide

“Tell me why I want to fall to my knees in awe of the Lord right now, but part of me says no for who knows what reason!” This is something my darling friend asked me after our escape to a nearby mountain top. Worship music playing and descending from the spectacular view we basked…

´╗┐Magnificently Obsessed

I won’t be able to adequately explain what this year gave me, the beauty it has instilled in my life and the relationship that was built with Christ through it all. I wish I could give it justice by being able to describe the transformation in vivid detail and immerse you in everything I feel…
