The Importance of Journaling

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. I have kept a journal on and off in some form for as long as I can remember really. When I was younger I called it a diary and it even had a lock on it (which could be picked in two seconds with a bobby pin, but it felt real secure to me). At that time my deepest darkest secrets were kept behind that lock. You know, things like what outfit I wore and how I couldn’t believe my parents Read More

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. I was introduced to Anna Lebaron when I joined the launch team that she was leading for Bob Goff‘s new book Everybody Always. In the beginning I didn’t realize that she was an author herself, but what I did realize from my first social media interactions with her was how genuinely friendly, nice, and fun she was. Book launching is part of her job, but she went above and beyond to make us all feel part of the team and really get to know Read More

The Most Devastating Thing I’m Glad I did before Marriage Several years ago, I dated a guy who was everything I wanted in a husband. “Kevin” was a strong, praying man who was generous and kind.

My Gratitude Experiment

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. Gratitude is something that I do not believe we talk about nearly enough. We emphasize it at Thanksgiving, maybe we even do the month of thankfulness, and if something truly amazing happens we talk about how grateful we are, but the rest of the time the idea of gratitude is placed on the back burner for most of us. However, as a Christian gratitude should be a conscious, intentional part of our everyday lives. Scripture speaks of this very plainly. “Rejoice Read More

Book Review: For the Love by Jen Hatmaker

This post may contain affiliate links and ads, you can learn more about this by viewing my full disclaimer here. For the Love by Jen Hatmaker is not a new book, nor is it even a new-to-me book. I just read it for the second time, which should give you an idea of how much I love it. I am currently on a mission to read all of Jen Hatmaker’s books, because I love her so much. However, I felt the need to start with “For the Love” since it had been so long since I had read it. If you Read More

Compassion

I want to talk about something that is very dear to my heart today – child sponsorship. Adam and I sponsor two kids. Dickson is from Tanzania, and we sponsor him through Compassion, and Cai Lin is from China, and we sponsor him through Holt International. We started sponsoring Cai Lin at a Winter Jam event we took our youth group to in Kentucky, and we committed to sponsoring Dickson at our first Passion conference that we took our college students to in Atlanta. For those of you that know me personally, it might surprise you that Adam and I Read More
