Boards, perfect love, and home

You can never get a full picture of what the next chapter of your life will look like until you’ve jumped into it. And I haven’t quite decided whether i enjoy that or not.   Coming into this crazy journey, i had no expectations. Now that i’m three weeks in, I’m so glad i didn’t…

Dancing through the wildflowers

And so the journey begins… I guess there is no real way to prepare yourself to say goodbye to your friends, family, and home for 6 months. What a whirlwind this beginning has been. Going through security was almost flawless other than the strange looks from the TSA agents because my face was red and…

Life lessons

Well folks, we are a little over two weeks out from my arrival in Australia and boy am i geeking out. What are my plans for after this trip? (i get asked this a lot) and gee i’d tell ya if i knew myself. Let’s just say I’m open to pretty much anything, and the…

Resting in the promises. 

I’ve been trying to write this for like a week now and man it’s been hard. I wanted to just share what has been on my mind recently. My struggles and the things I’m actively learning through those struggles.  So here we go… Discontentment, worry, anxiousness, fear.   If you could take a peek inside…

the small impacts.

welp, I’m writing. And for me this week, that is an accomplishment. Recently i have been overwhelmed with this nasty feeling of discouragement. And it has hit me right in my passion. Writing. What a jerk move, satan. If we really get down to the root of things, I’ve been struggling with feeling inadequate. And…

Gandhi said what?

What a time to be alive, am i right? These past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind. Between nationwide uproar and the nitty gritty of my own personal life, i haven’t quite been able to keep up. As i sit here and watch the madness unravel in front of me, i can’t help but…

“Check engine”

Christianity and the Christian faith can be a bit complex. Trying to understand everything can give you a headache and by the time it’s all been explained to you, you don’t even remember what your first name is. Good thing God doesn’t want us to practice a religion, right? 😉 But really though, all God…

trust

Vulnerability plays a huge role when it comes to trust. Since trust is our topic today, I’m going to be vulnerable and share with you my journey and testimonies of trust this year. Although the year isn’t over, there has definitely been a theme so far. 2016 has been the year of learning how to…

To the person called into missions

Hello precious missions family(and any others reading this), I would love to kinda share a bit in this post the story of how i got called into missions, and then also some things that God has been teaching me about missions. To start off, let’s go back to the spring of 2015. At this point…

you’re loved.

Love is such a funny topic. I know I’ve talked about it before on my blog but to be honest, you can never talk about love too much. And recently, I’ve learned so much about love and how truly incredible and important it is. For the last 6 months, I’ve had the honor of loving…
