When Your Days are Anything But Sunny

The word healing has meant something different to me throughout my life. When I little I thought healing was something that Jesus did to help old people feel better. As I got older, I realized healing was not just physical. After my Grammy died, I had to undergo healing. I had to work through my grief…

The Grace that We’ve Been Given

These last months have been a chaotic whirlwind of a semester. I have not blogged since May, and I want to get better at writing again. This semester has brought a lot of growth and healing. I wanted to share some things that the Lord has been showing me and working with me on, if that…

Worship Time and Daily Devotions

Starting the day off with God has always been a challenge for me because I do my devotions at night. But something that has been impactful and helpful for me is listening to worship music. It is one of the joys of life. I could make lists and lists of worship songs that have touched […]

Strength, Intentionality, and Finishing Strong

  I am less than two weeks away from being out of college for the summer. Emotions rush me as I even take in that statement, along with a list of things needing to get done. Literally, right now I have three separate to do lists for things that must get done in the next…

When You’re Home Alone

Hanging in There

 There have been times in my life where I have felt I was wondering around in a fog. I could not see in front of me and I could barely see my feet below. I was afraid and confused. I did not know what was coming. Sometimes I felt like someone was punching me in…

Here’s to You

I remember very distinctly, when my family moved from Florida to Arkansas in the eighth grade, how challenging it was to make friends. I remember the times during the day when I would see Kenzie (my twin sister), I would hug her and be so excited because she was my security. She got it when…

What Was Done in the Garden

This morning, I was preparing for our floor devotions. I was listening to worship music on YouTube, just as I always do while preparing. A song came on that I had heard maybe once. It was called Come out of Hiding by Steffany Gretzinger. I paused to listen and watch the lyrics flash from screen…

Looking Fear in the Eyes

I’ve heard so many funny stories of older siblings trying to convince younger siblings they were going to get sucked down the drain or get eaten by some monster under the bed. Siblings try to stike fear into the hearts of their other siblings because they find some weird amusement out of it! Trust me,…

Dreams, Goals, and Hannah Montana

I guess I have wanted to start a blog for quite some time now, but have never had the courage to pursue it. This is really putting myself out there and to be honest, that is just a little bit scary. But my hopes are that you are always encouraged by what I post and…
