Intentional rest

A lot's been going on in my life as of late. (Since that last post, I've become a shift leader at Chick-fil-A as well...as you can probably imagine, this adds a fair amount of craziness.) But is that really anything new? Often there's so much going on that I forget all about resting. Or at least,... Continue Reading →

Truth’s dynamic impact (2 Timothy study week 2)

Welcome back to the blog Bible study! If you missed last week’s introduction, you can catch up here. Here’s a quick review of last week’s main points: Paul praises Timothy for his sincere, wholehearted faith. Paul explains our calling and the Spirit God has equipped us with, so that we need not be ashamed. Paul... Continue Reading →

Be not ashamed (2 Timothy study week 1)

Hey, y’all! Welcome to the first day of my first blog series. I’m borrowing an idea from my friend Amanda Beguerie and hosting a blog Bible study for the next several weeks. The way it works is simple: I’ll be posting my study of the week’s passage on Tuesdays (hopefully) with a list of questions... Continue Reading →

Uncertainty is not the enemy

Here’s something I’m learning: uncertainty is not the enemy. The past year has been a crazy mess of college stress as I try to figure out what I’m doing, where I’m going, and how I can afford to get there. It’s involved a lot of switching here, there, and everywhere and a lot of confusion... Continue Reading →

I press on

That little girl in the center of the picture is... (you guessed it!) me. I was eight years old that summer. I attended my church's track and field camp. Every day after morning stretches, we had to run a lap on that gravel track. Wasn't a problem for most of us--we were little kids, after all.... Continue Reading →

The life of the unexpected

{Forest Glen Bible Camp, Nova Scotia} It's a Saturday afternoon. I should be at work. I'm not because I'm quite sick. Instead, I've spent the day sitting weakly in this squishy brown chair, coughing my lungs out and trying not to move too much so my muscles won't ache as badly. I just reached the...

Living integrified

It's interesting how God helps us grow. We ask Him to make us more patient, He gives us opportunities to be patient. Uncomfortable, annoying opportunities. We ask Him to make us solid through and through, a person of integrity, and He puts us in tough situations where we want to compromise. I was supposed to work... Continue Reading →

I cannot do anything

Note: This is the first post I ever wrote for this blog, way back around September. But for some reason, every time I stumbled on it in the drafts folder, I felt like it wasn't the right time to share it. Today, however, I was again reminded of the principle in this post, and so...

“Your words can change the world”

It's that time of year when the school year is drawing to a close. Programs are winding down, and schedules are changing. Tomorrow is the end-of-year party for our homeschool co-op. It's a bittersweet moment. Because of how school is shaping up for me, it's looking like I'm not going back to co-op next year.... Continue Reading →
