Hi. Please Stop Getting Offended. :)

This post is very different from my normal blog style, and I realize this title may come across as harsh to some. That's truly not my intention. But lately, I've been noticing some things, and my heart is hurting. Disclaimer: I'm writing this to Christians, because I am one, and therefore can speak to those… Continue reading Hi.

To the Girl who Can’t Wait to be Married but Has To Because of Time. From the Girl who Can’t Wait to be Married but Has To Because of Time.

I'm sitting by the window of a small coffee shop in a very different place than I was last year, with a ring on my finger, a full heart, a lot of joy, and a lot of impatience. The best way I can describe the first month of engagement is probably this: really, really awesome and… Continue reading To the Girl who Can’t Wait to be Married but Has To Because of Time.

Hey, you in your 20s: Having a Hard Day? Listen. Just Breathe.

In the past several years, I've landed on my bed in tears more times than I can remember. Life is hard. Growing up is hard. The 20s are a lively, fun and adventurous time of life, but they can also be very difficult. There are 5 things I've learned that I really want to share… Continue reading Hey, you in your 20s: Having a Hard Day? Listen. Just Breathe.

What to do when you feel like Mia from the Princess Diaries

It's been one of those weeks. Every single day, something went wrong. I won't mention the day I buttoned my shirt wrong and then actually went out in public without knowing until I looked in a mirror and looked my mortification right in the eyes, mentally retracing every possible person I ran into who may have… Continue reading What to do when you feel like Mia from the Princess Diaries

Sentimental Heart-Bleeds about Life and Living it Well

They happen to everyone. The graduation-day goodbyes to a group of friends that have become more like family and we can spend all day and probably even multiple days feeling the weight of the fact that life changes and people leave and people stay and most of these people we've so grown to love over… Continue reading Sentimental Heart-Bleeds about Life and Living it Well

a day in the life of an introvert who is also not a morning person (and other things you should know to help you understand such people)

That alarm went off once, and I hit snooze at 8 am, fully counting on the fact that it would, in 5 minutes, and every five minutes after I hit snooze consecutively, go off again. With that knowledge I soaked in those last few glory moments curled up in my bed. Then, a few moments… Continue reading a day in the life of an introvert who is also not a morning person (and other things you should know to help you understand such people)

Never Forget 7/7/07 – Memoirs and Heart Stirrings

Tonight as I curl up to the sound of a raging thunderstorm outside my window, I recall that this day marks 7 years since the day my life changed forever. It was a day that forever marked me and transformed me in a way I never dreamed. It was one of the best days of… Continue reading Never Forget 7/7/07 – Memoirs and Heart Stirrings

When the Answer is No, or when there is No Answer.

I always read stories (true stories) of crazy miracles happening in people's lives and God breaking in at just the right time. Just when they thought all was lost, a miracle happens and it is so evident because of the drastic contrast between the before and after of the miracle. I read these stories, and… Continue reading When the Answer is No, or when there is No Answer.

Fear, Faith, and Looking at God’s Track-Record

It's one of my biggest struggles. Fear. These days, I've been asking a question. To the Lord. How do you see fear? I want to see that way. Let me not give in to the temptation to look at worry and fear as okay because I'm a woman. Or okay because it's not murder or… Continue reading Fear, Faith, and Looking at God’s Track-Record

The Beauty of “Not Yet”

Remember those moments in your childhood when you asked mom or dad for something, and the answer you got was "Not yet"? What were the emotions upon hearing that response? Anxious, restless, upset. Maybe if you're like me, you wondered how in the world you were ever going to make it until that piece of… Continue reading The Beauty of “Not Yet”

May Jesus’ Name be Lifted High as we Press On and Go….

That moment in time, in the summer of 2011. Though it was nearly 3 months, it feels like merely a moment in time. It was a divine appointment of destiny. Young 20 and 30-something world-changers, history-writers, earth-shakers were gathered by the hand of God, from every corner of the earth. Little flames from all over… Continue reading May Jesus’ Name be Lifted High as we Press On and Go….

time, wisdom, and remembering to abide.

Tonight looks like rain. Steady, pouring, giving-life-to-the-earth rain. Tonight looks like a T-shirt and yoga pants, socks and a messy bun, curled up with a steaming cup of vanilla-chamomile tea. And I'm reminded of how good it feels to just breathe. As I recollect, I realize that so many moments in my day-to-day living are… Continue reading time, wisdom, and remembering to abide.
