In the heartbreak

What do you do when you don't get to say goodbye like you thought you would, when things don't end all neat and pretty like you planned, when you're left sobbing your heart out in your car in a parking lot late at night, because it's the end and you never knew it was going... Continue Reading →

Beauty in every moment

The funny thing about moments is they don't often stick around. Half the time, by the time we notice something is a moment, it's gone. The other half the time, it seems, we're caught up wishing we could make it last forever. What would it look like to live recognizing each moment for what it is, and... Continue Reading →

Be content

Contentment. It's something I think we would all agree is lacking in the world today, especially in first-world countries, who, ironically, have so much. Often, we equate being content with happiness. We chase happiness hoping to find contentment. How do I know we aren't just looking for happiness, as everyone says? Because happiness is fleeting. And... 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 →

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...

What is your purpose?

Purpose. So many of us spend our lives searching for it. We spend countless amounts of time and money choosing and preparing for a career, we engage in "self-discovery" to find our passions, and try to find ways to make our lives count for something. We all have this desire to be remembered in some... Continue Reading →

“Adventure is out there”

It's been just over a year since I made the choice to let go of over five years of writing in a journal every day. Those five years were an important part of my life, and there's a lot to be said for starting a discipline and sticking to it out of sheer will, forming of... Continue Reading →
