Questioning God’s Voice

It’s been way too long since I’ve written anything on here. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to… Life has been so busy. Today after work, I stopped at Menards to get a snow shovel and some Christmas ornaments, I dropped things off at UPS, I stopped at the post office, and then I mowed…

The Master Cleaner

Today, instead of heading to church, we spent the morning at an elderly man’s home where the shrubbery and trees were overgrown and the outside of the home was filled with mildew. I spent the entire morning power washing the house, steps, windows, and gutters of the home. As I sprayed the side of the…

8.12.17

One year. 12 months. 365 days. 8,670 hours. 525,600 minutes. A lot can change in a year. There are times in every life that you can look back, pin point and say, “That day. That hour. It changed me.” August 12th, 2016 will forever be a time in my life, and in so many lives, that…

Time Flys

Wow, it’s been awhile. Summers seem to be incredibly busy no matter what stage of life you find yourself. I thought my summers would look a lot different/be slower since I’m now a full-time working adult, but this summer I haven’t stopped. My life has been consumed with work, free-lancing, renovating my new house, shopping…

Living Exposed

Yesterday morning I cut the outside of my right hand on a metal box. The pain was instantaneous and I was annoyed with myself for being careless and allowing the cut to happen. I went and found a bandaid and covered it up to stop the bleeding. Throughout the rest of the work day I…

Consistently Pursued

I find myself constantly reminiscing about the flexible, easy-going, unplanned lifestyle of Kenya. I have conversations with friends about bringing that life to the US and transforming my hectic schedule into a relaxed, open, usable lifestyle. I am eager for that, and my heart desires a life where I am free to be used more…

The Journey to the Promise

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how my life right now looks nothing like I thought it would look at 23. In all honesty, I pictured myself engaged or married, working but not in the computer field at a desk all day, and everything going just perfectly in my family. I realize this was…

Unguarded

“We will never feel loved until we drop the act, until we’re willing to show our true selves to the people around us.” – Donald Miller I wish I had heard of the book “Scary Close” a long time ago, because it would have saved me a lot of effort, frustration, and pain. I’m not…

Speak Life

So the other day I was walking down one of the hallways in my office building, and a guy walked past me and as he moved past a flood of cologne passed by as well, and it got me thinking…  in the same way that our “scent” leaves a lasting affect, our words leave a…

When Life Gives You Fleas

So let me just preface this by saying that I’m not nor will I ever be the girl who loves making New Years resolutions. However, this January, I decided to challenge myself to finish at least one book a month. I love to read, so finishing 12 books this year will be a breeze, but my problem comes with…
