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”

My Confidence is Your Faithfulness

I am moving in one month. Just an hour or so away from my community of where I am now, but I’m moving away none the less. And I am not moving because I am looking for anything better, but because I feel super lead to be out on my own. Completely. Without anyone to leanContinue reading “My Confidence is Your Faithfulness”

How To Love Jesus When Shiz Gets Hard

We all can be dramatic sometimes. We all can make things worse than they really are. Take me for example. My dad has a swollen lymph node in his neck. First thing I thought? Cancer. Second thing I thought? I’ll never see him again. Now that is dramatic. But let’s get real for a second: life can getContinue reading “How To Love Jesus When Shiz Gets Hard”

Day 4 of Giving | Give Life

Day 4, let’s go! DECEMBER 4TH, 2016: Give Life. Okay, in all honesty, this is a weird one. Because giving life to someone isn’t really a real thing. But I think what I mean by “giving life” I mean giving someone a “reason” to live today, however or whatever that looks like. Existence is aContinue reading “Day 4 of Giving | Give Life”

Countdown to Christmas | 25 Days of Giving

Christmas season is an oh so wonderful time of the year. A season that holds so much joy and so much love.

We push and pull andContinue reading “Countdown to Christmas | 25 Days of Giving”

Treat People Like They Are People, People

My mom fell flat on her face a couple nights ago. She is trying to figure out how to tell people why half her face looks like she was knocked out at the voting polls this Tuesday, so I figured this was a good way to share it: She was running outside, took too wideContinue reading “Treat People Like They Are People, People”

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”

Why Laughter is Always The Best Medicine

Today’s prompt: Muddle

Muddle is a funny word. It rhymes with puddle (which I love puddles), which then got me thinking of the word juggle, then I instantly thought of clowns.

I’m not a big fan of clowns. But I am of a HUGE fan of laughing.
