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 […]

What will you be known for?

Sitting in my car as I write this, I look at the tassel hanging from my rear-view mirror. The golden “18” glimmers in the sun’s rising rays. The maroon strings wave back and forth as I move my hand through it – wondering how I possibly made it this far because, for some reason, this […]

Do you ever wonder why?

Do you ever just want to know what the heck happened? Why, in the name of all good things, of all people, did it have to be YOU. The heartbreak, tragedy, death, fear, mental illness, physical ailment – in the moments of grief when all you want is for something to make sense in even […]

Heaven and Earth – A Balancing Act

My hair and nails are killing it, my Instagram has the perfect theme, and I’m getting photography jobs left and right while also finding time to put together absolutely perfect blog posts every other day.

Fullness of Joy

I’ve had the idea for this post rolling around in my head for a while because I always hesitate to write about joy (especially when I’m not walking in it). But recently, I encountered the power of the Lord’s joy-gift – so, without further I do: joy. ———————————– I think we’ve made a dire mistake […]

He’s Not Gone

It is finished. It seemed as if He spoke to His own ending with those words. The world watched in wondrous horror as the man they thought to be Savior lay bloody and dead with nail scarred hands and thorn filled head. They saw their whole world, every belief, every hope, every peace, obliterated in […]

I’m in love! I’m in love! And I don’t care who knows it!

We have a very, very, very good God – He is so, so unbelievably good. It’s astonishing when we really think about it – completely, jaw-droppingly astonishing. As I was reading in Mere Christianity today, I came across a chapter on marriage where Lewis writes about how love is not all about feelings – it’s […]

Can you handle this?

Okay, this is pretty sassy – mostly because I tend to speak sarcastically to myself, so, let me just be real about what I’m struggling with right now. But then, there are parts where it is sweet; it is a glimpse into what the Father speaks over you, and it’s all things I really need […]
