With a Heavy Heart 

Dear, sweet children of God, I write this to introduce something that has been constantly in my Spirit so heavy that I must speak out. It is a very controversial topic, especially among my generation…but know, that if you disagree with me on this issue, I once was in your shoes myself. But I have…

Tears and Trembling

Well, I cried in school today. I was just watching a lecture, as usual, and at the end they added a video testimony from mission work in Papua New Guinea. The testimony was so awe-inspiring– the movement in the people was truly God-given. Plus watching the scene unfold answered my question from a passage I…

From Failure to Freedom

This was one of my journal entries from the beginning of the week. I’m posting it here because from the beginning to the end, you can see God’s hand in my thoughts and life, revealing truth and error and coming to comfort me in time of need. It was too precious not to share for…

Live like it.

People you can worship with, laugh with, share your heart with– People who will listen when you speak and truly care… But will care about Jesus and your relationship status with Him even…

Wow.

These last few months have hit me like a tidal wave. I’ve been drowning in emotions more times then I would prefer to remember, have had so many “major” decisions thrown at me, and have experienced God’s hand in my life more vividly than before. I am so thankful for our loving Heavenly Father who…

Restless

“If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.” -C.S. Lewis What to do when you don’t know what to do… It’s cliché, I know. But it’s a real feeling all the same– the sometimes all-consuming, sickening, nausea that…
