Sweet Freedom

Sweet Freedom

My sweetest and favorite moments of walking with Jesus have been when I have felt the most free. The freedom where I can be exactly who I am, uninhabited by what my adult life has taught me and I know my purpose is pure.  God wanted to use my voice, but fear held me back My voice is a big…

Hope in the Midst of Grief

Hope in the Midst of Grief

Grief is hard. It is. But that doesn’t have to be the end of the story. It takes time to go through and process our sadness.

Asking God the Hard Questions

Asking God the Hard Questions

Have you ever wondered what God’s purpose was for your life when He created you in your Mother’s womb? What about thinking about His desire to do life with you and dream with you?

Dreaming after Disappointment

Dreaming after Disappointment

I’ve always been a dreamer. My mind is constantly filled to the brim with new ideas that seem impossible and out of reach.

God calls us to do the complete opposite. As Christians, we aren’t called to be comfortable, but to serve selflessly. We are to put others first and…

In the Stillness

“What if I’m in the quiet? What if I’m right here, right now?” This is what I heard God speaking to me as I entered 2021. In my life, I’m used to constantly going and never stopping.

A Journey of Becoming

A Journey of Becoming

“Maybe this was a bad idea. I shouldn’t be here.” These were a few of my first thoughts as I touched down in Los Angeles to embark on a five month journey called Discipleship Training School. What was I getting myself into? I remember that day like it was yesterday. Anxiety filled my heart as I stepped off the plane…

Letting Go & Letting God

2020 was a hard year. I was caught up in the fear and anxiety that the whole world was feeling. Not only that, but I was also at a crossroads in my life. I didn’t know what my next season of life would look like. I was graduating college and needed a steady job right away . . . or…

On Earth as it is in Heaven

On Earth as it is in Heaven

Through lips accustomed to tradition, these words are spoken in churches all over the world. They are desperate pleas for a certain utopia here in the chaos of the world. It’s in the midst of desperate times do these words bring solace and comfort—there is a heaven out there and it has to be better than this. The tragedy of…
