A Poem about Pride (and our Savior)

Today, I'm going out of my comfort zone and publishing a poem I wrote about a year ago. I've been too nervous to post it until now, but I figured I would just go for it! ... I think my pride was holding me back from potential embarrassment anyway (ironic, huh?). ♥♥♥ It clasps me… Continue reading A Poem about Pride (and our Savior)

Rest: How to Recharge and Reset Intentionally

It's time for summer break! This is the time for vacations, pools, sunshine, watermelon, flip-flops, and all the summery vibes. I love this time of year.

When you want to give up…

My feet pound the track and my breathing echoes in my ears. Only 200 meters left. I hear my coach telling me to open up my stride as my teammates cheer my name. What people don’t see, though, is the battle happening in my mind. I’m debating with myself - trying to figure out if… Continue reading When you want to give up…

Knocking Down Idols and Walking through a Door

It hurts, you know; giving up what you’ve wanted for all your life really hurts. It might be a petty dream or an expectation for how things were “supposed to go”, but when our hopes and dreams are left unfulfilled and our idols come crumbling down, it hurts.
