Let’s talk about Hope

With all the craziness in the world today, we see so much negative talk, fear & an overall mood of hopelessness. This always makes my heart feel really sad. A few weeks ago, I remember someone tried putting me down for being “too optimistic” or “too hopeful,” and I still can’t grasp how that can… Continue reading Let’s talk about Hope

Living Your Climb

If you’re a 20-something like me, you may be familiar with the (in my opinion, iconic) song “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus from the (even more iconic) Hannah Montana Movie. As a 10-year-old when the song came out, I thought it was so inspiring- but after all the challenges I’ve faced since, it resonates with… Continue reading Living Your Climb

Becoming the Person

“Becoming who the person you’re looking for is looking for.” Maybe you’ve heard a sermon or read a blog post with a title along these lines. If you haven’t, basically it teaches us that we need to work on bettering ourselves before seeking relationships in order to be fruitful. I’m going to expand on that… Continue reading Becoming the Person

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

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.

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. Despite that wee fan-girl moment you just witnessed, this blog post is not a movie review. It… Continue reading From Now On…

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

Living Sober

"Why do you wear that bracelet?" "What does it mean to you?" "Are you Sober?" I know what you're probably thinking after reading the title of this post, but it's not what you think. This post is talking about sobriety, but I'm not referring to alcohol sobriety, per se. I will say, my inspiration for… Continue reading Living Sober
