Are you blind to blessings?

  I'm pretty sure everyone in my life who's close to me is going through a difficult time right now. Many are suffering from loss, some depression, some are lonely, some are recently divorced, some can't find love, some are financially in a bind. You name it, they're going through it. Now don't get me wrong, we all have struggles, but how long do you allow yourself to suffer through the pain before you find the blessing? I was just recently telling a friend of mine who just went through a divorce that I know it sounds silly, but God doesn't take you through a terrible time just so you can suffer. There is always a blessing to be found in what you're...

5 Ways to be more intentional this Christmas

What makes you all warm and fuzzy inside during the Christmas season? During this beautiful month of December, I have been spending so much more time relaxing and being still. I've been sitting in front of our Christmas tree for at least 30 minutes a day, in complete silence. It really helps me worship, pray and connect with the Advent season. Advent is such an incredible time in the life of a Christian. As someone who thoroughly enjoys worshiping outside the pews of church, Christmas feels so much different to me now. I'm not attached to a church, in fact you could even say I'm unattached at the moment. This year I decided to allow myself to be an unattached...

Genuine Support

"As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have a ton of friends, and more important to have real ones." Since launching my online business a few months back, things have been such a whirlwind. I work a full time and a part time job, so my business takes place between bathroom breaks and late nights on the couch. Some would call it burning the candle at both ends, I call it passion. Starting your own business is definitely not easy, not by any means. This is why support is one of the most important things. As a person who thrives off of words of affirmation, it's nice to have real support behind you when you start...

Let's Move Mountains

  "God's grace and strength can liberate you from your past and equip and empower you to help other women." 2 Corinthians 1:2-4.    Imagine sitting in a circle around this fire. Every summer I get the opportunity to do this with other Christians. There is no other feeling than sitting around a fire, with Jesus loving people, surrounded by music and mountains. When I set out on this journey to be a blogger, I never knew how it would be perceived by the outside world. I have been really transparent in my journey so far. I grew up in a house where it was not okay to talk about things that go on behind the scenes. We were always...

Do you feel like you're not good enough?

    There are times in my life when my faith seems like it's distant. As Christians, we believe in Jesus even though we know we'll never see Him face to face or hear the sound of His voice, in this life that is. But it doesn't mean He isn't there, and moving mountains in our lives. It's difficult to feel discouragement on our journey. If you read my latest blog post, then you know I recently lost my job. It was certainly a transition period. I never expected it to happen because I had put my trust in something that I could not see. Every summer I go to Laurel Ridge Summer Camp. It's a church camp I've been...
