BUZZZZZ. BUZZZZZZ. My phone sits face up on the desk. The words “ACCEPT” or “DECLINE” flash on the screen. BUZZZZZ. BUZZZZZ. I go over in my head if I want to answer the call or not. What could they want of me? Do I have the time to talk to them? The desire? The energy?… Continue reading Answering the Call: Obeying God’s Instructions
We've made it to the end of 2018! Yay! (insert balloons, confetti, and those big, goofy glasses everyone usually wears) 2018 was such a blessed year for me personally and for the blog.

757 days… That’s how many days in a row I counted calories and used a fitness app as a daily food diary. Some of my family and friends were happy for me—others a little concerned lol.

For example, the writing desk I ordered almost two months prior had been sitting next to my front door in a box staring at me for nearly… Continue reading Assembly Required: What God’s Plan Requires of Us
"Happy Fall, ya''ll!" That is all I've been hearing lately. Yes, Fall is definitely upon us but I can't decide what I love most about this season---- football, the weather, or corn mazes.
