My mom loves organization. She’s got a large pantry with 4 shelves that wrap around. As you can imagine, it gets a little messy at times. So she decided the other night that she wanted to clean and organize the whole thing. Of course I got volun-told I was helping her with this project. So … More Mirrored Image

Cutting Corners

My dog, Zoe, knows quite a few tricks. She’s a black lab, and I might be a little biased, but she’s pretty smart for a dog!  I grabbed a bag of treats tonight. They’re all natural turkey treats, because of course she only deserves the best! She heard the bag, and came running! I watched … More Cutting Corners

The Prayer Journal

We’ve all been there, you know, when you’re laying in bed at night, tired from a long day, and you’ve not talked to God yet, so you start to silently pray. The next thing you know, your mind is wandering or you’ve fallen completely asleep. This was literally an everyday occurrence for me.  I’d get … More The Prayer Journal

Drop in the Bucket

Here I am, sitting in the backseat of my dad’s pickup on our way to our weekly dinner with my Mema at a local Mexican food restaurant. My parents and I spend the whole drive listening to my Mema talk. She’s 90, as I’ve mentioned before, so conversations with her are quite interesting most of … More Drop in the Bucket

Grandmas Know Besti

I’m 30 years old, and still have 3 of my grandparents living. It’s an incredible blessing to be able to not only have memories of them from my childhood, but to be able to have relationships with them as an adult. Each of them have influenced my life in some way, but my Grandma, or … More Grandmas Know Besti

By My Side

“When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move…when You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through…when You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You, I will trust in You.”  (Trust in You – Laura Daigle) Every time I hear this song, it makes me stop and … More By My Side

You Are Losing Me.

I’ve seen a lot of posts recently about why millenials are leaving church. So this blog is my 2-cents, as a millennial, on why so many people in my generation struggle with churches, and are rethinking faith.  So bare with me as I share why I think young adults are disappearing from congregations all over … More You Are Losing Me.

No Neutral Exchange

Over the last few years of working with the public, I’ve learned many things about people and human nature. I’ve learned that art is often taken for granted, that money is hard to come by, and most importantly, that loyalty is scarce. That isn’t the case with everything, but I’ve learned it is when it … More No Neutral Exchange

Spirit Lead Me

I’ve never been much of a concert goer, but last year was an exception for me. I was blessed to attend 3 different Christian concerts in Lubbock, TX. One was a Hillsong United concert. Another was the Rock & Worship Roadshow (highly recommended). And the final was a Newsboys concert!  When getting ready to write … More Spirit Lead Me

Agape

Today is the annual celebration of love. Valentine’s Day. It is mostly celebrated as a romantic holiday, but I’ve never been one to see it that way. Yes, it is a day to celebrate with your significant other, however the day should be celebrated as a day of love for everyone. Genuine, sincere love for … More Agape

Blurry Vision

The doorbell rang as I was deeply engulfed in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy that I recorded the night before. I quickly rushed to open the door and found a little brown box laying on the doorstep. It was the contacts I ordered! Finally I could replace the ones I’m sure I had been wearing … More Blurry Vision

Finding Joy

The time is 6:20, and I’m woken up by the sound of a beeping alarm in the house. My 90 year old “Mema” spent the night because she sleeps better when she’s in a house with people. So what set the alarm off? She went to check to see who’s car was in the garage, … More Finding Joy

Hipster Church

I walked through the doors of a large popular church. I was greeted by faces with fake plastic smiles, shaking my hand as if I belonged. I had never stepped foot in their manicured building, yet they didn’t notice, because I was just another face in the crowd.  I walked through the hallways of trendy … More Hipster Church

My Victory

I want to start this post today with a video of a song that’s really been impacting my life recently. So, before you continue reading, please take a few short minutes to listen to it. ​​ I really don’t have to follow up to those lyrics, but I wanted to share what that song has … More My Victory

One of You

I’ve read this quote many times, but when I saw it on Pinterest today, it impacted me differently than any time before.  Let me put this in perspective for you. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is so vast that it takes our solar system 225 million years to rotate around it. Read that again. 225 … More One of You

Not by Grace

Ok, ok…all jokes aside, I watched the movie “Noah” before bed last night, and as unbiblical as 90% of the movie is, the reality of it got me thinking. We all know the story of Noah and God flooding the earth. It’s a story, much like David and Goliath, that we grow up with. Because … More Not by Grace
