Are You Ready for It?

One week from tomorrow I become a wife. I have waited and prayed for this day for a long time. I have watched my best friends have their moments, and stood there asking God why I was having to wait, and never really getting much of an answer. I remember wanting to find my person...

Send Help

So Thursday morning I got up and went to work, and by Thursday night I was barely able to drive home because of fatigue. I went to the doctor and found out I was positive for the flu. Needless to say, my entire weekend was shot. I was supposed to hang out with a friend,... Continue Reading →

Build Your Wall

So, what do you do when someone comes to tell you the walls of your hometown have been destroyed? Well if you are Nehemiah you go rebuild them. I think this is a big reason why I like Nehemiah. He’s a problem solver, and he acts. How many times do we see people identify problems,... Continue Reading →

Where is your safe place?

I think people are so interesting. I am fascinated by the behavior of humans, even my own. Something I have noticed about us is that all of us have a safe place. Its essential. We have to have somewhere to go when life gets hard. And we are so desperate for a sustainable safe place,... Continue Reading →
