Worth. Value. Identity. These can be intimidating words if your life looks anything like mine used to look. I’m not sure where and when I lost it, but I know that I searched hard to find it. Before I met Jesus, I searched for some sense of meaning by trying to get people to value… Continue reading worth. value. identity
Feeling stressed and overwhelmed? This one's for you.
We all know that one person who looks like they've changed. Have they really? Can they even?
This is my puppy, Riley. She’s 4 whole pounds and equal parts love and attitude. I don’t get many days to stay home with her all do, so when I do, I make sure to treasure them. Right now, I’m on a break from school and my internship, and as the holidays have started to… Continue reading lessons from a dog
As I sit here by the fire on this chilly Christmas night, surrounded by people I love, reflecting on the beautiful gift of Christmas and the story of Jesus’ birth, I can’t help but be drawn to the role of the magi.

The girl in class everyone else gossips about? That one person you feel like you see everywhere lately and you just don't know why? That guy that says he know the Lord but his lifestyle says the opposite and now people have given up on him?
