Time And Time Again

“Everyone reaches the future at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.” – C.S. Lewis – I have spent hours and hours, days, and weeks wishing that I could do everything I wanted in that very second. 2018, my friends, was what I would consider a year of wishful […]

Imperfect Christmas

I have always been head-over-heels IN LOVE with Christmas. There is this incomparable wonder that encompasses this time of the year—but, it’s really hard when that isn’t captured. This season is really rough for a lot of people—depression is real, loss is real, anxiety, dissociation, horrible family situations, they are all super real and super […]

What Am I Even Doing Here?

I’ve spent many moments in utter discomfort as I wonder about my purpose and a number of reasons for my general existence. I mean, don’t get me wrong—I understand why I’m here, God’s overwhelming love for us. However, that doesn’t change the fact that destiny has a more specific hand in the game than just […]

The Revolution

I have written many letters and scrawled across the broken, torn up pages of my tattered heart, lies that the enemy has whispered to me, and I have believed them because it was my handwriting that had allowed them to be inscribed upon me. Satan’s not very creative because we all get hurt in similar […]
