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.

I remember how a day without seeing them felt like it would never end and how all I wanted was to be with him all the time….

Humbled by Faith

My three year old cracks me up. We were leaving church and she had a coloring page she worked on in Sunday School over the angel coming to Mary to tell her she was going to have a baby. I’m driving and I hear her making the characters on her paper talk to each other….

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…

Never too late to wait..

Before you judge this by the first paragraph or the title and click that X on your tab thinking “this is some narrow minded Christian trying to push her beliefs on us” Because that’s not it. I’m going to share my point of view, what I believe is a great one as of a matter…
