Do You Love Me?

As I was in the process of discerning whether the Lord was calling me back to school to pursue a Master’s Degree or to become a full-time missionary with Life Teen, I traveled to West Palm Beach, Florida to visit my sister, my brother-in-law, and my precious niece and nephew. I’ve always enjoyed visiting there. […]

Fearless Victory

Victory: A superior position achieved against any opponent, opposition, or difficulty. A triumph; the ultimate decisive superiority in any battle or contest. That is the definition of victory, and I’ll tell ya: I get so pumped up just reading that little blurb. Why? Because we’re all a part of the most important victory of all […]

Goodbye Know-It-All

Throughout my whole life, I can regrettably say that I have been that judgmental and know-it-all person, almost always seeing myself in the right, and ready to give my opinion and tell others when I’m right and they’re wrong. There was this intense desire for me to be right, because in my mind, being right […]

The War

I had a dream a few nights ago that was so vivid and terrifying it ingrained itself in my heart and it breaks because of it. In this dream I was looking at this screen of a computer and I could see people from all over watching the same thing. On screen people, men and women were […]

The Blessed Life

There’s the good life, the rich life, a bad life, heck even that show “The Buried Life”; but I’ve found one even better. It’s the blessed life. A life so beautifully sweet, I kneel at the ground of Christ’s saving feet. A life so simple, it has let me realize my blessings are ample. That […]

What Is Love?

What is love? No not the song, but today in our society we feel that love is a box of chocolates, a dozen roses, or sneaking out to your sweet hearts house in the middle of the night. I got news for ya’ll, this is not love. Love is the cross; it’s Christ! “Whoever is […]

I Quit Boys

My dating fast wasn’t so much about the sacrifice of not going on actual dates, but more about the posture of my heart. When a guy paid me the slightest bit of attention, my heart was ready for wedding bells. I had a crush on a different boy all the time. I was so distracted by guys who weren’t worth my time, and frankly, didn’t even know my name, that I didn’t have enough space in my heart for the One who was already captivated by me — Jesus Christ.

God Speaks Clearly

God speaks clearly. Does He really? Just last night I had a conversation with one of my missionary sisters about this. We talked about how sometimes we wish that God would just speak more clearly: that He would tell us exactly what He wants of us, what He’s calling us to, and what He has […]

I LOVE ONE DIRECTION!

Do you ever find yourself saying things like this? Ok, maybe you don’t. Maybe it’s more like: -       I love my new iPhone 5 or iPad or -       I love Call of Duty or -       I love the new Taylor Swift album or -       I love Chick-fil-A or -       I love Starbucks or -       I […]

I’m like St. Therese!

Yes, like Saint Therese (of Lisieux)! I’m not from France and don’t speak any French. I also didn’t loose my mom at a very young age. I don’t have siblings who entered the convent and I didn’t visit the Pope to ask permission to enter a religious order when I was 16. I’m 24, but […]
