A Prayer for Singleness (& it’s not what you would expect!)

Today I feel a calling in my heart to share something very personal with you. I may regret this later in my life…but maybe I won’t. I have this strong feeling that someone, somewhere can relate to this – so here I go. Today I want to share with you the prayer I wrote in…

accepting how others see you

Good morning and happy Monday! Instead of my usual weekend recap, I am writing today about something that has been weighing heavy on my heart. I think I’ll also include some picture from the weekend because Barrett took me on the most amazing hiking trip to Red River Gorge! OK. Let’s get started. To be…

Redirecting our “Self-hatred” energy

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…

Sweet Potato Crust Egg Casserole

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday! I finished up my last final yesterday and to say I am relieved would be an understatement.

Keeping My Soul Sane

Acknowledging Darkness

Recently (aka the past 20 years) I have struggled with a darkness that consumes me, a darkness that controls me, and a darkness that is constant. Maybe you struggle with a darkness too. 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…

Why Do We Question Our Self-Worth?

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…
