Confessions of a Shameful Daughter.

Yesterday was a the typical mundane Tuesday. I made a million lattes and made small talk with any passerby of my quaint little espresso bar. I woke up well-rested and was ready to face the day. A few hours into my shift, my coworker knocked over a gallon of milk and my instant response was...

Somehow “I’m sorry,” doesn’t seem to cut it.

  Greetings from Kampala, Uganda, a country still recovering from when the Lord’s Resistance Army lead by Joseph Kony ripped through the countryside abducting children to be pawns in a senseless war against humanity.

What Needs To Be Said About Sex.

How a Million Moments Make a Life.

Lately I have been finding myself waiting for that big moment. You know when you are so overwhelmed by God’s presence that something bubbles out of you, whether it be tears or laughter. I faithfully do my quiet time every morning, begging God to overwhelm me with his love. And every time I feel his...

Confession of a Christian Who Still Struggles.

Growing up, I was in church anytime the doors were opened. I went on all the mission trips, camps, and retreats… attended bible studies, had the best of friends, and had multiple mentors. My life was beautiful. I said “the prayer” when I was 8 and proceeded to be baptized. I laid wide eyed at...

I Have a Dream- A Tribute to MLK

Eighty-five years ago today, a child was born that would forever change the way America saw equality. Martin Luther King Jr. was born into a culture where the color one’s skin held more weight than the merit of one’s character. Not satisfied with the status-quo, he sought to change it. He refused to believe that...

And Sometimes… You Just Need to Rest.

Remember that time I’ve been going nonstop for the past 3 years? I never thought I’d say this but… I’m kind of ready for my passport to collect a little dust instead of stamps. Don’t get me wrong, my heart still races when I see a picture of my little orphans and I still long...

Confessions of a Girl who Just Wants to Survive.

Growing up I imagined that by the time I hit my mid-twenties… I’d have a degree under my belt and a ring on my finger. Possibly a couple kids on my hip… and a job that pays a hefty amount. That I’d have my sacred circle of tight friends and that I’d have this whole...
