Waiting for My Groom!

Those in my closest circle of family and friends know that whenever the topic of my future husband is brought up, I cannot stay sitting down or in a monotone voice. In these scenarios, I often find myself standing on the couch and talking way too loud. 🙂 I cannot help but get excited when […]

He is Light

I was more than devastated whenever the baby carrot seeds I had lovingly watered for days never showed up. Disappointment took on a whole new meaning in my life last summer. The baby carrot seeds were not just a farming adventure. I planted them symbolically trusting in God to answer a prayer I was hoping […]

Our Umbrella

What stands out to me about umbrellas is that they are often closed up. They are not used all of the time, yet we keep them around for when storms and rain comes. Many of us feel like we are in a series of rainy days. Today is a literal one with the weather outside. […]

Cherishing the Word of God

I brought out many of my childhood Bibles a few nights ago. My “first thoughts of Jesus”’ page in one of them simply had a big smiley face on it. I remember the night I highlighted verses in my children’s Bible. My children’s pastor encouraged me and other students to daily read God’s Word. We […]

Jesus Makes Stones Roll. He Turns Our Lives Around.

Jesus has a message of hope for us. His screaming cries as a baby were met by the loving voice of His mother Mary. Jesus picked righteous yet flesh clothed humans to teach him. He grew up, played, and even experienced scraped knees! He taught the men who were considered most educated. Jesus knew hard […]

Cultivate Quarantine // NOAH

While in my family’s game room this past week, I continued to see God help me dream about ways to love others during this time of distance. As some of you know, I have been having the privilege of leading a girls ministry monthly since this past July. God birthed Cultivate as a part of […]

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 […]
