If you haven't seen the update posted to my social media pages, I have published my first book! The Lord be glorified for the completion of this work, for I needed His help every step of the way! It is a special revelation that deepens each time when I experience over and over again how … Continue reading I’m Savoring this One: First Published Book!
Ever met someone who was just different? It was a flurry of introductions when the 50 of us college students landed in Tel Aviv, grabbed our bags, and loaded onto a bus. I don't remember the first moment I met John Chau, but as the 10-day trip through Israel continued, it became clear to me … Continue reading John Chau
The burning message in my heart to share is hope. As the flower that finds its way up through cracks in the concrete, this hope comes from a place of trial. We wouldn’t know the anchor of hope for our soul without being hard-pressed on all sides by trouble. From news media highlighting “the sky … Continue reading Hope in these Times
"Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-burdened..." Anyone else looking around at our world and incredulously asking, "Really though, what is going on?!" I've been weighed down by the heaviness of it all; and I've avoided the news more than I probably should have since I want to be adequately informed. Somehow I … Continue reading Release for Peace
Inspired from a conversation with my sweet mama, I pointed out "she" was consuming way more coffee in this quarantine season than is necessary.

One of the greatest gifts we can give to another is knowledge. In sharing about the Enneagram personality test, I hope to empower your life by the self-actualization this resource can bring! Like any tool, it is not the be all, end all. The greatest danger I've seen (and at times, personally experienced) is making … Continue reading What’s All This Enneagram Hype?
Classic. All the reviews you've read about this masterpiece are correct. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is daring, simplistically complex (you know if you know), funny; the kind of read that causes the rare occurrence of your heart and mind and gut to Ahaa! all together at a universal truth you had only shallowly conceived prior … Continue reading The Alchemist
It's the simple pleasures, isn't it? One of my favorite little joys is opening a Yogi tea bag, plopping the leaves into steaming water, and following the string to cup the tag and read the short quote printed on one side. (It's almost like cracking open a Chinese fortune cookie, but you don't feel uncomfortably … Continue reading The Slow Way
The pilot's voice booms over the intercom: "I have good news and bad news. The bad news is we're lost; the good news is we're making great time!" Doesn't that ring so true in our busy, busy lives?? When we accidentally hit that pause in the hustle, we look around and wonder where we're even … Continue reading Busy Busy
I’ve struggled with buying into this concept of self-love for awhile. It’s the trend, and I’m always wary of those. Especially if something deep in my spirit pings at the sound of it. Before accepting a fad as gospel, I try to test it against God’s Word. Through this lens and exploring wiser sources than … Continue reading Beloved-Self, Not Self-Love
We have misconstrued Jesus. Do we worship an Eastern Rabbi who knew the Torah backwards and forward, who came to fulfill the Law and Prophecies of the Old Testament (meaning He followed the 613 edicts of the Mosaic law perfectly because He was raised in a culture that poured over them daily), not to abolish … Continue reading Let’s Meet Him
