UK Trip: London, Cambridge, Oxford, Scotland

Being a full time student and a full time small business owner doesn’t warrant much down time. If I were being honest, 2015 was the last time I can remember taking a break! I’m a firm believer that there are different seasons of life meant to be dedicated to certain things. I couldn’t be more […]

4 Truths that Transition to Every Season

I have been pondering what I would say, given the chance, to the younger (say freshman college version) of myself. I then came up with the following 4 lessons I have learned in my 20 years of life and realized that they applied to every season of life, rather than solely upon the first year […]

Belle: Our Family’s Newest Member!

So if you’ve followed me on social media for any amount of time, it’s no secret that I am crazy about my dogs. Growing up I did dog shows and agility with my golden retriever, Ella (She’s now 12 years old)! Ella has been such a sweet blessing in my life and it’s been such […]

Advent Has Come

The family tree of Christ startlingly notes not one woman but four. Four broken women —women who felt like outsiders, like has-beens, like never-beens. Women who were weary of being taken advantage of, of being unnoticed and uncherished and unappreciated; women who didn’t fit in, who didn’t know how to keep going, what to believe, […]

How to Know Who You Are

  “For unless you believe that I am, you will die in your sins.” John 8:24 In a world redefining and reshaping, how do you know? How do you know who/what you are? What you’re meant to be? But really what we should be asking is….who is He? “ἐγώ εἶμι,” He said. I Am. These […]
