Feliz Año Nuevo

*for best reading experience, play this song in the background* hahaha Fourteen days into the New Year and yet, for me, today feels like a new start. Getting laid off is so odd. You go into work on a Friday and find out you will no longer have a job that Monday. No warning, nothing,…

Don’t call it a comeback..

Actually, yes, let’s call this a comeback cause I’ve been gone for quite some time. Most of my writing (if any) has been on my instagram or in my journal, but today I woke up with an itch to reopen this blog. Maybe it’s because I’m in a situation that has forced me to stop and analyze…

He delights in second chances.

Before I start let’s get something out of the way.. I think it goes without saying that I am not a fancy theologian, and I also do not have all of the answers. I am just a girl who loves Jesus and struggles with consistency (cough cough, the frequency of my blog posts are a…

Breaking News: Jesus hates religion.

It’s been so long since my last post and so much has happened since then (I feel like I’ve written this before, ha). Anyway, please bear with me as I try to piece together the things my heart has been processing these last couple of weeks. Some time ago I decided that I would study…

There’s so much more in store.

So much has happened since my last blog post! Life has been really hard, but I’ve never been this thankful. You see, I’ve been a Christian since my junior year of high school and my relationship with God has gone through many seasons. In the beginning I was like a child who had just learned…

LANY

Pro tip: Have a girl’s night at a boy band concert, you won’t regret it. There’s nothing like screaming your heart out to love/heartbreak songs.. that you can’t relate to ;).. in a room full of awesome girls while staring at some pretty great eye candy. Here are some pics from last night. If you…

Rainy Day Resources

Today I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite faith-based resources. Some I’ve known for a while, others I’ve come across recently, all of them have blessed me tremendously. They are in no particular order. MESSAGES Rethinking Church | Francis Chan  First off, I LOVE FRANCIS CHAN and would recommend any of his…

You’ve got a friend in me.

Yesterday someone asked me what I missed most about my childhood. My answer was simple: friendships. They seem so genuine when you’re a little kid. Maybe because there aren’t as many expectations. I miss being able to go outside and play with my neighbors without a care in the world. I miss riding my bike…

“Wherever you are, be all there.” -Jim Elliot

First off, if you don’t know who Jim Elliot is (and would like to).. click here! I came across this quote a few years ago but it wasn’t until now that it’s gained a deeper meaning for me. You see, I consider myself to be a dreamer. I love to dream about what my future will…

I’ve got a crush on humanity.

I love how different we all are. Each and every one of us made up of different gifts and talents, strengths and weaknesses. I love how in my most vulnerable moments, God shows me his love through the people around me. I would not be who I am if it wasn’t for community (disclaimer: that…
