Your Walk with Him has to Be Your Own

Hello, friend! I had my wisdom teeth removed a few weeks ago and wrote some words down after I got home from the surgery. Since my mom was taking care of me, I used one of her notebooks as it was readily available for use. God has continued to remind me to return to the […]

He is My Home

The thoughts of home are filling my mind tonight. Growing up, my parents would encourage me to appreciate the beauty of home. This sometimes consisted of me desiring to swim in a pool but improvising by using a cooler or small bucket to fill with water and sit in. I would make mud cakes and […]

2019: A Year of Growth

I first think of the very beginning of this year. My family had been in Smithfield for the day, spending time together, Darby and I getting our nails done, and all of us trying to track down a family friend in a nursing home. My family arrived home, and my grandparents showed up to help […]

“Don’t Forget My Death”

Opening my Bible to Scripture describing Jesus’ death on the cross, I hesitated in wanting to read it. Thinking about Jesus dying for me seemed sad. Every year my church hosts an Easter play showing the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. I work in the nursery with precious kids! We sometimes have a […]

Active Faith // Being Held

Driving home from my community college yesterday, intense pressure from the Lord laid upon my chest. It was a moment with the Lord in awe of seeing His hands at work in my life even more. I know my Father is faithful, and looking back over our journey together always confirms that. I have been […]
