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 […]

People Matter

Women are valuable. Men are valuable. Children are valuable. People are freaking valuable. I think in the current climate with feminism and sexual assault awareness, the #metoo movement, women’s marches happening all over the country, and even less than 24 hours ago the events that unfolded concerning Kavanaugh, we have begun bringing something incredibly important […]

Hello No Control

Let me start by saying trusting God is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I mean, I’ve always thought of myself as someone who had at least a moderately acceptable amount of faith. Fun fact, though: that is not enough. We are commanded to completely surrender everything to Him who is able […]

Faithful in Little

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” (Luke 16:10) I hate this verse. I really do not like it because it means I have to work and try and be in process, and I hate […]

Recently, I’ve found myself living in a perpetual state of orphan-minded, poverty-stricken brokenness. It is really not fun, but an incredibly important realization has struck me about these few weeks of mountain top highs with God and valley lows with Him too – sometimes your ideas about God have to be broken and reformed to […]

Where Is Your Brother?

I think there is something to be said about feeling forgotten. There is something to be said about feeling alone. There is something to be said about feeling lost, about being lost. Having this in mind, I want you to ponder a question: Who have you forgotten? I’m pretty sure I’ve never thought about this […]

You Are Worth…

You are worth waiting for, and you are worth being pursued. Hold on now – read that again – you are worth. You are value. You are not a measure of worth or value – you are it. Your existence is unquestionably important, and did I mention you are insanely beautiful? You are defined by […]

I Love This Coffee Shop

I cannot even begin to count the number of times I’ve sat in this exact spot – this perfect place in this perfect little coffee shop. It has been here through breakups, broken dreams, and bankrupted relationships. I have never been more thankful for one table in my life (actually, it’s more like three, but […]

FOMO

We live in a world filled with FOMO – fear of missing out. I am in the majority easily consumed by this. I’ve always been worried about missing out because, for some reason or another, I feel like I often have. As I’ve struggled with maintaining healthy friendships since I was young, it’s a constant […]
