To The Girl Who Was Told She Isn’t Good Enough

This blog is to the girl who was told she isn’t good enough,

the girl who was rejected by a job/opportunity,

the girl who was dumped by her boyfriend,

the girl who was picked last,

the girl who listened to the mean girls,

the girl who let others state her value. Continue reading “To The Girl Who Was Told She Isn’t Good Enough”

Back-to-School Prayer

Today was the first day of my junior year at Auburn! I felt led to share the entry from my prayer journal. I think this is a great prayer for anyone, anytime, but especially for students going back to school. Join me in prayer, and let’s make this a year where God’s glory is displayed every day!

A Day in the Life: Studying Abroad in Spain

I’m spending July studying Spanish abroad at the University of Salamanca in Salamanca, Spain. Here’s what a typical day this month looks like:  Continue reading “A Day in the Life: Studying Abroad in Spain”

The Necessity of Little Deaths

In a recent blog, I wrote about how good things are not always good things; sometimes we have to let go of things/people/places that were once great because God is no longer calling us to those things. I wanted to continue writing about sacrifices with a little help from Elizabeth Elliot: Continue reading “The Necessity of Little Deaths”

101 in 1001

Two things that I love are making lists and setting goals. “Notes” is one of the most used apps on my iPhone because I make lists for everything. Blame it on Type-A personality or an obsession with organization, but I feel compelled to constantly make to-do lists and lists for things I need to buy/bring/remember/etc. I just don’t want to forget anything!

The Best Yes- Lysa TerKeurst

I am long overdue for sharing some of my favorite books, so tonight I want to review a fairly new book. The Best Yes: Making Wise Decisions in the Midst of Endless Demands by Lysa Terkeurst challenges the busyness of our day to day lives and encourages the readers to seek Godly wisdom for decision making and scheduling.  Continue reading “The Best Yes- Lysa TerKeurst”

Breaking Bracelets (and Chains)

A couple weeks ago, I had one of those hard conversations. You know the ones. Conversations that are long overdue, but the thought of actually bringing up the problem or the situation puts your stomach in knots. It’s almost easier to just sweep the problem under the rug than boldly confront the other person.  Continue reading “Breaking Bracelets (and Chains)”

Embrace Your Story

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. {Galatians 2:20}

There are many verses that share this same idea. When we decide to follow Jesus, our lives are transformed. We step from the darkness into the light. For some of us, we met Christ as a child and don’t remember much before Him. For others, we were a completely different person, living in a world of hurt and sin. What I want to say today is that we should never be ashamed of who we were or what we did before we gave our lives to Christ.  Continue reading “Embrace Your Story”

Crucifying with the Crowd

This week, we celebrated palm Sunday, the day we recognize Jesus’ Scripture-fulfilling entry into Jerusalem. But this was more than just a ride on a donkey. This was a proclamation that Jesus is the Messiah.  Continue reading “Crucifying with the Crowd”
