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

Litter Box Lessons

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

A New Journey

I’d like to take today to talk about something amazing God has brought into my life. I want to just take the time to praise him and acknowledge his incredible ability to work all things together for good. This may sound silly to some, but God has opened a door of opportunity in my life, 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

Horror, Yay or Nay?

John 8:1-11 1 Corinthians 13 Mark 12: 30-31 It’s that time of year, the time for hot chocolate and sweaters (yes I wear sweaters in Florida), the time for carving pumpkins and my all time favorite, watching horror movies! I can feel your looks of disgust even as I write it, but it’s true. I

Saved For Later

Everyday, after the kids are off to school and I’ve had a sufficient amount of coffee and prayer time, I stop everything and make the best possible lunch for my boyfriend. Yes, I’m corny, yes, it wastes some of my time. And yes, I get excited like a 12-year-old girl meeting her crush to see

Hidden Treasure

*This is the post I had written for yesterday, but was unable to post due to power outages. I woke this morning with a renewed sense of gratitude. It’s the little things… Bright lights held steadily on unmoving ceiling fixtures. The way it feels to quiet a chill in the night with a warm blanket.

Hurricane Hiatus

Wow you guys, I feel like I haven’t been on WordPress in months, it’s only been a few days! I’m so sorry if I haven’t been as responsive to comments or read many of your posts. I will catch up, I promise! We spent the past few days fighting for supplies and preparing for the
