Patience is a virtue I do not possess. Waiting is really difficult for me and always has been. I am impatient and like to be in control–a pretty bad combination of characteristics. Last week in the gathering of my Church family, I felt a little inspiration to write about waiting–the pain in waiting, God’s role… Read More Take Courage My Heart
I think it’s fitting (and a tad ironic) that the topic God has placed on my heart the last few days before Halloween is fear. As an adult, I think Halloween is one of my least favorite holidays for two reasons: 1. you have to come up with a costume that is altogether cute, funny,… Read More Whom Shall I Fear?
God moves in mysterious ways. I would say this is one of the top 5 most over used Christianese phrases.

Me being the introspective and problem-solving person that I am, I began… Read More Single & Ready to Mingle?
Something you should know about me is that I have a lot of favorite things. I frequently think through my favorite color, movie, book, song by each of my favorite artists, day of the week, food, flower (which has always been Gerber daisies, but now I’m really liking peonies–just in case there’s a boy out… Read More Gardening With God
Most days I feel like my brain has two sides. On one side is math, which causes me to be very analytical and see things very black and white. And on the other side is psychology, which gives me a love for people and a desire to understand people’s thought processes, what drives them, and… Read More Who Am I?
So I had planned on sharing a new blog post about the enneagram test (a personality test I’m kind of obsessed with right now), but something happened a few nights ago that changed my mind and convinced me to save that post for a later date. Living at home in the suburbs with my parents… Read More We All Have a Choice to Make
Confession: I am a very fearful and (unfortunately) insecure person. Lately I have been feeling really insecure about my writing. I’ve written a few new blog posts, and I’ve been hesitant to post them. I have been allowing the fear of man to rule me, guide me, and dictate my actions in so many areas… Read More Confession Time
