Chasing God, Not Perfection.

I think we all like to think (or at least pretend) we have our lives together. We act like we are more put together than our neighbors when deep down inside, we know we are not. Friends, it’s time to wipe off this facade. Stop pretending you are perfect! Look, just because you’re a Christian,… Continue reading Chasing God, Not Perfection.

Big Girls Don’t Cry

I am a very emotional person. Anyone who knows me knows this. I wear my heart on my sleeve and get hurt quite easily. I’ve tried to hide it but I can’t, it’s just who I am.

Chronically Optimistic

Anyone who knows me knows that I've always been pretty good at being- or at least acting optimistic and cheery.  Before I truly found God, however, this optimism was often a façade; I acted optimistic in order to feel better about my life and hide my true feelings from the world. Once I made my relationship… Continue reading Chronically Optimistic

From Now On…

If you're anything like me, you're probably obsessed with all things The Greatest Showman. I could talk for hours about how much I love everything about this movie- from the music, the choreography, the casting, the costuming, everything.

Dear Dysautonomia

As a person with a chronic illness of the autonomic nervous system, I've had to make many adjustments & try different treatment plants. It's a battle, but it's a battle I'm willing to fight. Since creating this blog, I have joined some online communities of other Christian bloggers my age. Many of these ladies also… Continue reading Dear Dysautonomia
