Give A Little

We’ve all heard the scripture that says “God loves a cheerful giver” from 2 Corinthians 9:7, and personally, I think it’s used in the wrong way. It’s not used in the context of doing so in a way that you feel you should in your heart.  Don’t get me wrong, giving to your church is … More Give A Little

Doors Opened

I was walking into Wal-Mart one day (sadly) to go buy some sinus medication, and as I got close to the automatic door, I witnessed a man walk straight into the metal and glass in front of him. The door didn’t open automatically. He was expecting it to open, and BAM he hit that door head … More Doors Opened

Just Bloom

Because I’m a photographer, I spend a lot of time taking photos of people who aren’t always the most comfortable with themselves. More often than I like, I hear things like, “my hair doesn’t look good,” or “can you make me 10 lbs thinner?”  On Saturday, I took photos of a high school senior. During … More Just Bloom

Flesh Wounds

Joe to pretend church.  We were a little rough sometimes as all kids can be, so we got our fair share of bumps and scrapes. None of which … More Flesh Wounds

I spent time skiing with my youth group when I was younger, and needless to say, I realized just how uncoordinated I actually was when I’d slip on those long, skinny death traps. I’m pretty sure I spent more time sitting or … More Puff of Powder

Oh the Irony

Amazon Prime has saved me lots of trips to Wal-mart! Free 2 day shipping means I buy all sorts of things from shampoo to dog treats! It’s especially great at times like this when I just had a birthday this week.  Of course, since I’m now 31 (insert deep sigh), I get money for gifts … More Oh the Irony

Moana and Me

I hung out with one of our youth kids at church on Saturday night. We watched the Disney movie, Moana. Spoiler alert, I’m going to be blogging about the movie today!  If you haven’t seen it, the movie is about a Polynesian teenager who is about to take over for her father as chief of … More Moana and Me

Created for bigger 

Have you ever made something that ended up being used for something different than what you intended? I’m a crafty person. I enjoy making things and attempting Pinterest projects. It’s something I’ve always been good at, so I find joy when I get to use my creativity to make something awesome. To be honest though, … More Created for bigger
