Oh, Little One

I love babysitting. Sometimes though kids would ask the darnedest questions. More than often I'd have particularly younger girls asking me if I had a boyfriend. At the time, I politely said no (with a smile). As if I gave a repulsive answer they would gasp and quickly follow-up, "Why not?!" Now, at the time... Continue Reading →

Kissed by the Sun ☀️

It's that time again - S U M M E R T I M E ! ☀️ The sun is out the weather is warm and the drinks are cold. Clothing to cover up is sparse and (frankly) comparison is on the rise. You may find yourself questioning your own beauty even after trying to convince... Continue Reading →

Toilet Analogy

You're probably reading this simply wondering how could anyone in their right mind make an analogy using a toilet??! Well, if we are “out of our mind,” as some say, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you (2 Corinthians 5:13) - so, here it goes. Through my professional... Continue Reading →

Make Your Mission More Than a Trip

Time after time I've wondered if anyone would ever uncover a 'cure' for those post-mission trip blues... If you've ever gone on a mission trip, you know that your sole focus is Jesus.

ON the side of a mountain in Colorado swinging in my hammock // IN Alaska hiking the lands at the heart of the Kenai // WITH my new friends volunteering in Omaha, Nebraska // TO the under-glorified parts of New York City...

KEEP IT LIT FAM🕯

I have this fire within my soul, ignited by the LORD almighty. 🔥 Still today it’s burning bright, fueled by the Holy Spirit. Just as the moon reflects the light of the sun in the night, 🌙 I reflect the Son, the Light of the world, in our dark and fallen world. This little light of mine,... Continue Reading →

DAY 001 || YEAR 021

As I begin another adventure filled trip around the sun, I reflect on a journal entry my (roughly) 13-year-old self wrote. I didn’t know then the truth in which it would resonate with me many years later. [ PSA - the original grammar remains, so please excuse the (many) mistakes in advance ] “Some people are...
