Choosing Barabbas

You may or not be familiar with the story biblical account of the holiday known as Easter, but that is the inspiration behind this post. At the time I began writing this, it was Holy Week, and I've delayed posting it due to getting way too caught up in my studies to make time to… Continue reading Choosing Barabbas

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.

Why I Chose to Attend a Private University

"Where do you go to school?" "The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor." "Ohhhh, Baylor, wow!" "Uh, no, not Baylor." "Sic 'em bears!" "Well actually..." This is a conversation I have pretty much anytime I meet new people or go home. No one has heard of my little school (that I love). Those that have heard of… Continue reading Why I Chose to Attend a Private University

A Faithful Challenge: I Have Been Called. [2018]

*** A/N: This blog post is from the fall of 2016, when I began my fundraiser to go on a mission trip to the UK. Last summer (2017), God made that happen. I have been called to return this coming summer, so the sentiment of this post still rings true. The shirts mentioned in this… Continue reading A Faithful Challenge: I Have Been Called. [2018]

The Testimony Effect

   Growing up in the church, I often heard people speak of their testimonies, or the story of their relationship with God, at church and camps, but it wasn't until fairly recently that I realized how much impact their words can have on me.      Most preachers or church camp speakers mention their testimony… Continue reading The Testimony Effect
