Christmas 2019 and Trusting His Truth

How is it that Christmas has already come and gone?! Christmas was yesterday, and it was such a beautiful day! Both literally and figuratively. Like, it was actually 55 degrees outside in WISCONSIN (insert “shocked but thankful but kind of worried about global warming and altered seasons” emoji here). It’s been a whirlwind of aContinue reading “Christmas 2019 and Trusting His Truth”

Worthlessness, I Don't Want to Forget You

There’s something I never want to forget. The more I reflect on my journey to happiness, my blog, and the impact I want to have on people whose paths cross mine, the more I hear the words in my head, “Don’t forget where you came from; don’t forget who you once were.” I feel tuggingContinue reading “Worthlessness, I Don't Want to Forget You”

Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving

The day before yesterday was Thanksgiving, and while I initially planned on publishing this post then, I decided to spend Thanksgiving Day living fully in the moment and reflecting on everything I’m thankful for!

My Early Morning Routine

(Dangit,Continue reading “My Early Morning Routine”

Twisted Up and Tangled

I just wanted to feel God, close and personal – too real to deny or doubt. I’d been battling my mind so much for weeks. I’d been anxious and far more negative than normal. I’d been believing the whispers Satan tells me: that I won’t be successful, that I’m not anything special, that I can’tContinue reading “Twisted Up and Tangled”

Death Comes Before Resurrection

Truth time! I can feel that it’s time for change in my life, but all of my efforts are leading to dead ends. I feel like I’m flailing, and now I’m yearning for the comfort I had. Even though I want to move on, I’m clinging to what I’ve known. Why? We are often afraidContinue reading “Death Comes Before Resurrection”
