To My Fellow Dreamers

Disney has a great way of teaching children to dream. For me, Disney inspired me to have a bold personality, go on a grand adventure, and marry a prince. Although I wanted to avoid the struggles of Cinderella and an early death like Aurora, becoming a princess was one of my earliest dreams (it might…

When I Grow Up…

Three and a half weeks off from the craze of running around with not enough time to do it all, that is known as college, has opened up a bit of time for reflection. I have been evaluating who I am and where I am now versus who I want to eventually become and where…

Thanks for Lowering the Mat

I thought so long and so hard about what I was going to write here. I knew by the second week of my freshman year at Baylor that I would be writing this, and now, the semester is complete. I drafted this post, letter, journal entry, whatever you want to call it probably about 500…

A Time for Everything Under the Heavens (Ecclesiastes 3)

I’ve recently learned that goodbyes are not my favorite thing ever. Jesus, Jesus is my favorite. But goodbyes, they are a real challenge if you love the people you are leaving behind. I think of myself as easily adaptable, maybe not fully true, but that’s what I’d like to think. I can make the best…

There’s Always Room for Improvement~ a note to self

What joy the love of God brings us!!!! The Lord is so good despite our view of whatever our situation may be. He calls you and I by name and is always at work, even when we can’t quite hear Him. He loves so deeply and offers salvation so freely. But what do we do?…

STOP IT with the Questions

I have a really bad habit of thinking about things so much, so in depth that I end up talking myself out of some of the best opportunities I’ve been blessed with. I contradict myself A LOT. This leads to some serious decision-making issues. It can be beneficial that I have the ability to see…

All You Need is Love…The Love of Jesus

My first response to a situation that I am not used to is judgement. It’s natural. It makes me feel better about how I’m leading my life. Yet, it’s not at all like Christ. My most recent adventure included a trip to Las Vegas, Nevada. I will admit, I was the one who pushed for…

An Extraordinary God Reavealed in an Everyday Kind of Way

I do my best thinking when I am in the car. Sometimes it takes ear buds and a phone on airplane mode, and sometimes I just need to sing at the top of my lungs to my Father God. In my attempt to be truthful, my thoughts can often be quite dangerous. I think about…

Christ Be the Center

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately and as usual the dreaded word “busy” got the best of me. My intimate time with my savior was restricted to a few short moments in the morning. Just to top it all off, it has been one of the most stressful times I’ve ever experienced. I…

Next Chapter

     My new journal came in the mail today, and it couldn’t have made it sooner. For the past two years, I have journaled my faith through prayers and thoughts. The concrete growth that can be found on those pages is unfathomable. So many answered prayers, some were quick and others developed my patience. God’s…
