At a Stop Light // Just Wait

Hello, friend! I am currently sitting at a desk directly across from opening doors inside of my college building. People keep passing by and my curious self wants to keep looking up. It is sometimes hard for me to focus on the task right in front of me as I want to engage with all […]

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 […]

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 […]

Worth the Wait

Oh my! God is so good to me! Today is National Day of Prayer, and my school was honored to have Supreme Court Justice of North Carolina Mr. Newby come speak to us. His dear wife, Mrs. Macon, came and spoke as well. She didn’t speak out of her own strength. No, rather, her words […]

Fully Consecrated’s Birth Announcement !!!

The “baby” God has been growing within me is finally here! I have jokingly (but seriously) been using the baby analogy with this because I feel like I haven’t even officially announced Fully Consecrated to you.
