Setting Boundaries (intro)

This year has been an eye-opener. I think everyone says that every year and that's a good thing, it means that we are moving forward or at least touching the deeper meanings of life. But, seriously, it feels as though this year kept my eyelids peeled back until the dryness of my eyeballs was no … Continue reading Setting Boundaries (intro)

Handmade Christmas Cards

It only took me about a week of mental preparation to make my Christmas cards. Yay we did it! Ever since I can remember, I've always enjoyed making Christmas cards for my family. Not only do I put effort into the crafting (which is by no means spectacular), but I always aim to write personal … Continue reading Handmade Christmas Cards

Revolutionary, what does that mean?

As an adult, this word means almost nothing to me. But, as a child hearing the word "revolutionary" sparked imaginative feelings of drive and innovation. I want to change the world! Teachers and adults were always pushing the idea onto us (as children). This directive was loud and clear. I MUST change the world!

Just let go already

I originally planned to use today's blog to explain why I won't share any photographs of my baby online. Why? I guess because I feel strongly about consent and privacy of minors, among other things.

Why You are Free to be Free (pt. 2)

Speaking about sin tends to put people, especially unbelievers, on defense. That tension is not dignified proof of your innocence. It's the enemy's way of keeping you distant from God, read Part 1.

When Solitude Becomes Isolation

Solitude can be a beautiful thing when exercised with purpose and I found refuge in getting away from my socially toxic ways. However, too much time alone can also be harmful. My alone time transformed into self-punishment. I castigated myself for not being able to change the bad things that happened in my life, such as being fired.

Being Hard-Headed: the Cycle of Failure

Yuck, right? This story is always too good to be true because we are human and life is not a movie. Falling out of line with the perfect story shattered me when I finally got a grip. When God slowed everything down, I was able to see from third person POV that I was actually making my own mess. Only as a viewer, was I able to understand the cause-and-effect of my own life.

Ushering in My First Blog

If you know me, like actually know me, you might say that I love to talk. In a big crowd, a stranger might see me and think that I was a quiet wallflower. (Some people might say I appear unfriendly and detached, that's a topic for another day!) To be honest, the combination of the … Continue reading Ushering in My First Blog
