Hopes Fulfilled

To say the theme for my year has been “Hopes Fulfilled” is an understatement. In 2018 alone, sooo many things I’ve prayed for (some for days, some for months, and some for 10+ years) happened. I had a woe is me moment on 2 things I’ve been praying about for years, then I was gently... Continue Reading →

A New Normal

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!! I'm no longer CHASE-ing the facade by swiping my VISA every chance I get. DISCOVER-ing the One who provides the real FREEDOM has allowed the CARD to no longer MASTER me. I never knew that was possible as an AMERICAN, where you're told to EXPRESS everything rather than wait. The morning of December... Continue Reading →

Unexpected Packaging

This past week, the thought “I didn’t expect that” came up a few times for me. On 2 completely different occasions, I was hit with the realization that just because something doesn’t look like or arrive the way I expected, it doesn’t mean my prayer isn’t being answered.

Most people don't know, but for the past 14-15 years, I've struggled with a condition that had me in chronic pain. There were times in high school when I was hospitalized. Doctors did every test possible &... Continue Reading →

Resist Conformity

• Why do we assume that those who kneel in protest aren't kneeling in front of the cross? • Have you actually looked up the entire/original lyrics to the star spangled banner? • Why do we assume that the more money a person makes, the quieter they should be? • Why are you so bothered...

Face the Pain

I’m thinking about the time I completed my 2nd marathon. People have asked me over the years why I would do something so crazy, and I never really gave an answer. The answer? Well, I wanted to prove to myself that my mind was stronger than I believed. I was a decent track athlete &... Continue Reading →
