Why A Podcast Steph?

“So what is this good good thing you’re doing that we saw on Facebook?” My sweet grandparents had picked me up from the airport last night, and as we hopped into the car, this was the first question they asked me. I love that question. So much. Because that question is exactly what I hadContinue reading “Why A Podcast Steph?”

Give Yourself Some Grace

I stink at giving myself grace. The kind of grace I try so hard to give to others. The kind of grace that I want everyone to give themselves. The kind of grace Christ offers me every day. THAT kind of grace I am no good at. I am doing the Whole 30 diet. Let’sContinue reading “Give Yourself Some Grace”

You Need to Know Something

Hi. I would just like people to know that I don’t have it all together. Moving to California sounds pretty glamorous, but believe me when I say it’s really not at it’s cracked up to be. Except the warm sunshine. That’s glamorous. Oh and the mountains/hills during the sunrises and sunsets. Oh and the beaches.Continue reading “You Need to Know Something”

What Would Jesus Do?

Over my life span, I’ve noticed something: I have a whole lotta pet peeves. Like dogs barking between 4 am-8 am. Or locked doors.
