Have you ever been asked the question, “How have you seen God’s grace in your life?” Or, “How does God show you His grace?” Growing up in the church, I have definitely been asked those questions countless times. But it wasn’t until recently that I knew how to answer them. For the majority of my… Read More How Does God Show You His Grace?
Asking God to reveal Himself to you, I believe, is a prayer He will always gladly answer. Lately I have been feeling like the Lord led me to this place and just left me here. I know that is not true and that the Truth is that He will never leave me or forsake me… Read More His Presence is Our Present

Well, the cat is out of the bag. I struggle with depression and anxiety, and they have been swingin at me left and right for the past few months.

This is the story of a girl, who cried a river and drowned the whole world. Just kidding. But really, that song has been stuck in my head for days. You’re welcome.
