This morning I was reading my Jesus Calling devotional and it was all about redirecting our "self-hatred energy." It says, "rather than using your energy to judge yourself, redirect it to praising Me (God)." (pg. 204) I really, really needed to read that today. It is so easy for me to look in the mirror … Continue reading Redirecting our “Self-hatred” energy
Good morning and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty relaxing despite all the studying on Saturday. But lets take this recap back to Friday!

I use to try to hide my darkness from God. I would pretend like it didn't exist. I would act like it was "just the devil" controlling my thoughts. I … Continue reading Acknowledging Darkness
Seems like kind of a silly question I suppose. Maybe you never question your self-worth and maybe you have faith in yourself 100% of the time...teach me your ways! But if you are anything like me, or human, you question yourself and your worth at some point or another. So this week I have two … Continue reading Why Do We Question Our Self-Worth?
I hope all of you had a wonderful Labor day weekend! My family and I headed up to Pennsylvania to visit my 90 and 92-year-old great aunts. We left Friday evening and made our way up to Louisville to grab some food at Panera and hang out with my Aunt and Uncle for a little … Continue reading Weekend Recap: Pennsylvania
I am most definitely a creature of habit. I like my routines and I do not adapt easily to change. My morning routine used to consist of: wakeup, workout, coffee, quiet time, breakfast.
