When Your Plate is Full & Your Cup is Empty

I’m tired, y’all. Drained. Exhausted…and I don’t even have kids. (Special shoutout to all the Mommas out there, you go girl!) Life has been one thing after another lately- A sick grandmother, issues finding a rent house, a sick grandfather, a little brother needing encouragement, a run-down car, friends in toxic relationships. From hospital visits… Continue reading When Your Plate is Full & Your Cup is Empty

A Love Letter to my Single Friends

As a 20-something with lots of girlfriends, dating comes up often in conversation. I have four close friends engaged, FOUR. A few of the others are in steady relationships and the rest are attempting to navigate dating as a young adult (AKA the rest are confused as heck). At one time or another they have… Continue reading A Love Letter to my Single Friends

Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through.  A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus;… Continue reading Jesus Found Me

I Am Not My Parents’ Divorce

I can recount every detail about the day I found out my parents were “not going to be together anymore.” I was sweaty-faced and my tangly hair was somewhat pulled back in a scrunchie.  I had on my favorite Limited Too t-shirt with a cool astronaut chick on the front with some Old Navy blue jeans shorts. Mom… Continue reading I Am Not My Parents’ Divorce

Give up the Good for God

I have a really good life. I went to a good college and I have a good job. I’ve made good decisions (for the most part) and I’ve accomplished some good things. I have good friends and a good dog. But we are not called to live good lives. Even with a good job, a good home,… Continue reading Give up the Good for God
