Yesterday, I was driving back to Nashville from Tifton. Along the way, I was surprised to see snow about 2 hours outside of Nashville. It covered the ground in its snowy, white magic and the trees were dusted with a thin layer of white and it felt really magical. But about 30 minutes into the [...]
I've heard people talk about having a word for the year, but that's not something I've ever really thought about or done. But 2020 makes ya rethink some things. So I sat down and thought about what I wanted 2021 to look like. What do I want it to be full of? What do I [...]
Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever. - Psalm 107:1 As 2020 wraps up, I am thinking about what this year has taught me. It's been a really hard year, but in the midst of chaos and pain is where I see God the most because I need to [...]
I live in a really old house in Nashville. I mean really old. Built in 1928, our dear girl has a few issues. So far we have had one of our toilets completely replaced, a bug infestation (actually might have been rats but for the sake of my sanity I'm just gonna keep saying bugs), [...]
Gratefulness is a practice, one of which I haven't been participating in lately. But here's the thing: gratefulness changes everything. Read more below!
I posted this on my personal Facebook a couple days ago, but I felt like I wanted to include this on my blog as well. I also had some more to add as I felt like I couldn't cover exactly everything I feel on a Facebook post without it being thousands of words long.
This is not the condensed version. And I want to preface this with the fact that I do not have all the right words to say. I am a 23-year-old white woman who has a whole lot to learn when it comes to racism and my privilege. But I want to voice my feelings and my concern and so this is it.
Last weekend, I went back up to Nashville to get some of my things. Last time I was in Nashville was almost two months ago. I left for spring break thinking I'd be back in a few days, and then I never got to go back. So being back in Nashville had me bursting with [...]
I was listening to a podcast recently where the host said "The world needs more storytellers, not more cheerleaders." I've been thinking a lot about that statement lately. What does it mean to be a storyteller instead of a cheerleader? Should we be both? I've looked around and seen my friends doing brave things. I'm [...]
There's kind of this dance that I've felt like I've been doing these past couple of years trying to "figure out who I am." Yes, I know I'm a daughter of the King and loved and so on and so forth, but I also know that God gifted us with individual and unique talents. He [...]
75% of the time I would rather be friends with all boys. And i mean it. Girls are so moody and mean and gossip too much and are draining. And the thing is I'm one of those girls, I'm sure of it. But I'm so tired of feeling that way about others knowing I need [...]
