Persevering Through Normal


Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces perseverance, and perseverance produces character, and character produces hope. This hope will not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Romans 5:3-5

My sorority just started a new Bible study called Looking for Lovely by Annie F. Downs. The entire study is about looking for lovely (opening our eyes to God’s fingerprints all around us) and using those moments to fuel us when times get tough. Continue reading “Persevering Through Normal”

A Beautiful Gift


I was holding in my hands the most beautiful present I had ever seen. It was wrapped tightly in gold paper that glimmered like the sun. The burgundy ribbon wrapped around both sides until it concluded into a perfectly symmetrical bow on top. This gift was beautiful in every way, and it was mine to enjoy.  Continue reading “A Beautiful Gift”

The 5 W’s


At some point when we were younger, we all learned to ask the 5 w’s about an unknown situation- who, what, when, where, why. These 5 question words helped us to better investigate and understand an object or situation. I have made a video to explain what I am doing next year and to answer the 5 w’s about the World Race!

I am currently at a crossroads in my life, one that is familiar to many people- what to do after graduation. College is an amazing time of learning and having fun and finding out who you really are and what you want in life. However, that doesn’t make the post-graduation time seem any less blurry.

New Year, New Season, Same Coffee

Well, we’re 5 days into this new year. As I write this, I’m sitting in a crowded Starbucks, drinking my favorite sugar-filled latte. This is about the time when most people have gone back to drinking soda, given up on the gym, and broken other corny resolutions.

Why You Won’t See My Bible on Social Media

I’m getting ready to share something that is going to step on some toes. Many people are going to disagree with me. Others are going to think I just don’t “get it.” However, I’ve really felt convicted about this issue, and I feel the need to point it out.

Wild Love


Have you ever read a quote, saw a picture, or heard a song that really just took your breath away for a minute? That’s how I felt about this song. I heard it for the first time last week, and it’s been on my mind since then. Continue reading “Wild Love”

More-Than-Enough Love

A couple weeks ago, I was at the ONE college service at Church of the Highlands, and the message really spoke to me. Continue reading “More-Than-Enough Love”
