When non-Christians see these passive-aggressive conversations taking place between believers online (and they do), no wonder they think we hate people. Because we’re showing them that we do!
I am in a season of pruning. God is working out the junk to replace it with something great. Part of this includes identifying what I thought was self-doubt. These doubts have actually been feelings of conviction. It feels as though God is showing me the parts of me that I didn’t even know were … Continue reading Kitchen Shears & Staples
Do you ever look back on something and think to yourself, "How did that even happen?" Sometimes good, sometimes bad, but it always makes you think. Growing up, my dad always enthusiastically described the crazy good moments with the same phrase "That was a total God thing!" It didn't matter if it was about us … Continue reading One Millimeter

I knew that I had a lot to do so I avoided it until it was almost time to leave … Continue reading What Happened?
This morning I woke up to the sound of my fiancé puking his guts out. Not necessarily the best thing to wake up to on your day off. Disclaimer: we do not live together and he slept in a different room #waiting. Immediately following my unexpected wake up a thought popped into my head. I thought … Continue reading “Exactly Where You Need to Be”

One of the simplest ways to think about it is with food. For example, let’s say I only eat In-N-Out, chocolate ice … Continue reading My Thoughts on Trash
No, I am not pregnant. No, Tucker is not lying to me. No, we are not getting married just to have sex. No, we do not have to live together before we get married to have a great marriage. No, I am not a college dropout. No, I do not hate gay people because I … Continue reading Learning How to Love
