I don't have much of an introduction other than I'm so tired of watching people hurt other people. I'm so tired of opinions and weak convictions. I'm so exhausted by the news and the pain I see. I'm sure many of you can relate. Thank you Shia. I stumbled on such a powerful story in … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts.
Living out my call during COVID.
King David is ending his reign and setting up his son, Solomon, to take over. Solomon is commissioned with a task that will go down in history; building the temple for God. "The task is great because the building will not be built for a human but for the Lord God." 2 Chronicles 29:1 And … Continue reading Living out my call during COVID.
I'm not even sure how to start this post. I wrote out three sentences and deleted them all. I'm not going to reveal anything earth shattering so chill (😆)- but I don't know how to put into words what God has been trying to change in me. So this isn't a conventional post- just shooting … Continue reading Good/Bad

I Pick Things Up & Put Them Down
"BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ!" Your alarm goes off every morning. Same time, all the time. Your feet hit the floor, you wash your face, you do your thing. Eat some breakfast (maybe you don't because you just run out with your coffee mug 😉) Mornings. Amirghttttt?! We all have them. These past few months I've been … Continue reading I Pick Things Up & Put Them Down
Since I had different friends growing up, my mom always warned me when I went to their houses, "if something or someone ever makes you feel uncomfortable, you call me right away, and I will pick you up." One time, I went to a friend's birthday party and her mom rented us movies (from BLOCKBUSTER!) … Continue reading Generous Obedience
Zigzags & Circles
CLIMBBBBB EVERY MOUNTAINNNN! Have you ever climbed a mountain before? I have in Guatemala, years ago. You needed some endurance for that hike but it was manageable. I still remember the next morning waking up literally in the clouds. It was the craziest thing. I also got a picture with a donkey. So.... I guess … Continue reading Zigzags & Circles
Permission to be a Gold Digger
Recently while away on a trip I had the opportunity to meet some new people along the way. Matt was in another group as I took time and chatted with a woman on the other side of the room. By the time the night was over, we were recapping the day's events, in which Matt … Continue reading Permission to be a Gold Digger
There is MORE
This past weekend I was very honored when Pastors Todd and Mary asked me to preach about living a life of abundance. Which is ironic because growing up, I always felt like God wanted me to suffer to an extent. One reason why was because my definition of abundance was skewed. Living in abundance is … Continue reading There is MORE
I Want What I Want
Kids can be ruthless sometimes. Back in my high school days I used to babysit this 5 year old boy. He wasn’t so bad to watch but sometimes he would have the worst tantrums (like kicking-me-in-the-face tantrums). I remember he used to love to play this spy video game and he would get so mad … Continue reading I Want What I Want
