Body Talk

Body image issues are like this giant, unspoken (sometimes spoken), looming presence of insecurity that towers over nearly (if not all of) everyone. We are plagued in thought and appearance. Suffering the task of painting on faces and imminent self-disapproval that engages our minds to walk in insecurity without any relief… like, ever, it seems. […]

Casting Out Worry About Control

For a long while now, I’ve been worried about a myriad of things: money, travel, am I doing anything worthwhile with my life? (As you can see, the questions have escalated the more I’ve thought about all the things about which to worry!) But then there are these moments when that still small voice whispers […]

Beloved

You are valuable. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You are broken, beautiful, perfectly messy, and absolutely astonishing in every little thing because you have been crafted in the Creator’s flawless hands. A fabulous arrangement of every colorful burst of personality quirks. You are the most lovely collection of everything you once believed yourself to […]

This Is About Something

I have read a thousand verses and sung a thousand songs; prayed a thousand prayers and heard a thousand words… Yet here I sit, constantly wondering about God and His goodness—I’ve realized my greatest points of question have come at times when I am not being consistent or intentional in pursuing Him with my time.

I Love Acting

I love acting. In fact, it’s one of my favorite things. I’m very good at it. I love writing façades for people to take on, and I love taking them on myself. It’s really quite fun. But you know where it becomes not fun? I’m sure you see where this is going—in my actual life. […]

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 […]

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 […]
