That Girl

Reflecting on the teen years in high school, we can all remember that girl. You know, that girl that always needed a boyfriend, validation from a guy, and would flirt with your crush because she always desired to be desired. Yep, you know that girl. Especially if you were best friends with that girl and…

Word of the year

One of my favorite things about the new year is it always feels like a refresh. Even though it is really no different than another day, another week, another month, it still has the empowering effect on every person to re-create themselves or make new goals or finally do what they’ve been aspiring to do….

A little lie here and there

One of the best snippets of advice I have ever received in life was “honey, if a boy can lie to his mom, his first woman to ever love, than what makes you think he won’t ever lie to you?” Let me give you some back story to how I got this advice. I did…

Never too far gone…

Yesterday my husband taught the Sunday School lesson. Seriously there is no prouder moment for me as a wife than seeing my husband preach the word of God as eloquent as he does.

Is my fruit spoiled?

It’s a struggle each day. I have three kids, work full time, a dog, serve in my church, and am trying to lose weight. Each day really is a struggle. I’m lucky if I’m asleep by 10p.m. even though I need to be awake by 5:30a.m. And let’s be honest, Lord knows I’m going to…

I can’t be the only one who thinks coffee tastes like cigarettes?

It’s an early morning. I drove like a zombie to work so I had another day of forcing myself to drink coffee. Which I swear tastes like cigarettes. Of course I’m basing this off of my “regretful days” where I would pretend to smoke just to impress people.  The only time I ever really tried…
