I’ve held on to this for a week now… ⁣ ⁣ “The Lord will fight for you, and you must be quiet.” Existed 14:14 ⁣ ⁣ “Now, therefore, present yourselves and see this great thing that the Lord will do before your eyes.” 1 Samuel 12:16 ⁣ ⁣ “To seek to lead a quiet life,Continue reading “Still.”

Girl, stop “washing your face”

This is going to be a very unpopular opinion, and I’m okay with that…⁣ I was there. I read the book and I bought into it. ⁣ I fell prey into believing that I am in control and that what others think of me should never matter. I believed the lie that I should beContinue reading “Girl, stop “washing your face””

Have a team focus outside of sports

You may not be a football fan, and that’s okay. But I think we learn important lessons through sports. Today, my family and I sat and watched an emotional Saints game. I know there’s a lot of people who don’t understand that, but there is a lot of pride for the team who represents yourContinue reading “Have a team focus outside of sports”

Starting the new year strong

It’s funny, isn’t it? How we build up the end of the year to this one big moment where the clock strikes twelve, you kiss your love (or dog…), shout out “Happy New Year” and then go to bed?

I wish I could say this was a nightly routine for us, but in all honesty, there are many nights that we don’t go to bed together orContinue reading “How we view marriage matters”

The problem with social media

I remember being a preteen and loving social media. It’s so cool that you can share your thoughts and feelings and your every move with all your friends and family…until 8 years later when you see it on your memories and end up kicking yourself for ever posting about the “funny” conversation you had withContinue reading “The problem with social media”

A note to 15-year-old me

Lately, I’ve been really reflective on my teen years. While this is titled “A note to 15-year-old me,” it’s really to all teenage girls, who sometimes feel as though you don’t belong. First and foremost, hear me when I say, your parents will be your greatest advocates, and you simply just don’t know everything. AlsoContinue reading “A note to 15-year-old me”
