Offended On My Behalf

You maybe read the title of this and thought I was making some deep reflection about Jesus but it is way less theological. I had to share a story that happened recently about my honor being defended. What a funny thing, to think that chivalry still exists in this “selfie-sh” generation. (Forced pun intended!)

When the answers don’t come…

This has been the hardest blog I have ever written. I now have 3 unfinished blogs floating in my head and in my computer, because the words felt off. The words of this blog are vulnerable and true, but they are the only words that seemed right. I hope this helps you as much as it has been helping me through the last year and especially the last few weeks.

Allergies and Contagious Faith

Ok, so not to sound super cliché, but Spring is in the air. We just got into March and I have been wearing shorts for weeks (Thanks Texas). As sweet as this old phrase is, with Spring comes some not so great things, like cleaning and ALLERGIES! I haven’t done my cleaning, but I have the allergies covered. I don’t know what blew in last week, but it hit me hard. I was…

To The Moon And Back

When I was a senior in High School, my favorite person of all time was born. He made his entrance into this world on a Monday night before an important district softball game against a rival town. Besides it being a great night of celebration, it was also a night filled with stress and frustration for that 17-year-old girl waiting in the lobby. I was picked up from a…

Missing Jesus and Christmas Miracles

Have you ever been in the midst of a storm and felt a crazy, unmerited sense of peace? Well, I can now 100% attest to that. I have felt peace before but never to the illogical level that I felt this December. Martin and I were almost dumbfounded by this sense of peace that basically took over. Let me explain, for months Martin and I had been planning a Christmas Musical…

Stressful Blessings

My life has been defined by big moments, as most lives have. I have experienced many things from huge hope to devastating disappointment. Life is funny how it cycles, but there is a new experience that struck me on November 9, 2015. STRESSFUL BLESSINGS. Sounds crazy to label blessings as stressful, but hey if the label fits…

Quick Pick-Up Deception

I was speaking with some fellow church members and we were talking about the cleaning that you get done before people come over. Isn’t it interesting how much cleaning gets done right before someone gets to your house? I mean throughout the week, you can’t find the time, but then there you are in the last hour before they arrive, and your house is “cleaner” than it has…

Dating Advice from Children

I recently got some wisdom from kids, ages 6 and 8. We were in Children’s Church and talked about being filled with the Holy Spirit, God’s love for us and their love of balloons. After we finished our little lesson, I mentioned for some reason that I was 26. They were SHOCKED! They thought that was weird. And then, the questions came rapid fire: Are you married? –No. Is…

Don’t Be Afraid of Fear

Often times, fear is not something I think about, but sometimes it is a haunting presence that follows me throughout an entire day. This was my Wednesday. As I woke up to a phone call at 6:43, I was a bit in shock because I don’t typically get early morning calls like that unless there is an emergency. My alarm wasn’t even set till 7:15, so not only was I a bit freaked…
