Trust Like a Daughter

What does it look like to trust? Like, really trust. Not vaguely believing in the back of our minds that everything happens for a reason. Not anxiously asking for God’s peace while simultaneously spewing worry and paranoia with every breath. Not posting verse images on social media as if our declaration of belief earns us

Back to the Point

This month. Wow. Just ridiculous. I find myself again on the same merry-go-round ride wondering, seriously, what am I doing here, and why can’t I seem to move forward? I started this blog called, “LoveNcourage” to inspire you (and myself) to live out a life of love, which takes a massive amount of courage in this

Have you ever had one of those strange dreams that just goes on forever? It’s like you’re watching yourself in a sitcom but instead of ending after 20 minutes it drags on and on for what seems like an eternity? Maybe I’m weird, but every once in a while, I get one of these. Last

Victim, Slave, or Warrior

My post today is one that comes from a very angry and frustrated part of my soul. It is very personal and may be difficult for some viewers to read. But it must be said. We are bringing to light an issue that has been pushed just under the surface of our awareness for far

This Is War

Ya know that place in the Bible where Paul expresses his frustration with himself? It is literally an identical copy of my mind today. Romans 7:15-25: I do not understand the things I do.  Me either. I do not do the things I want to do, and I do the things I hate. Me again. And

Priorities

So, this week has been a real eye-opener for me. The past few months have been a period of extreme growth and spiritual awakening for me. And maybe I got a bit too cavalier about everything. Maybe I let pride get a little bit of a foothold. Maybe I just let anxiety get the better
