Fallen World “Beauty”: God + Love is Greater Than Sweatpants

Love isn't about the way a person looks, it's about the connection you have with someone's heart. It's the butterflies you get in your stomach when you know you're going to see them; it's the comfort their presence brings you, without them saying anything. It's knowing that you don't have to doll yourself up all the time to impress them, because they're impressed with the way God created you. They don't love you because of the adornments you use to be fashionable or beautiful for a materialistic world.

Changes in Life

Not long ago my husband and I contemplated purchasing a home, but as we began the process we quickly realized my student loans were going to be a huge (like $72,000 huge) hurdle. This led to our first aha moment. Even though this wasn't really a positive thing for us, and it was a huge disappointment, it came to be a huge blessing.

Working Through It

Some days are easier than others. There are great days, and then there are days when I'd rather never get out of bed again. On those days even sunshine doesn't seem as bright, and I am reminded just how imperfect I really am.

What’s My Calling?

Recently I've been thinking about what I'm meant to do with my life. I'm almost finished with my journalism degree (finally!), but I don't know where I'm supposed to go from here. I've got massive student loan debt hanging over my head (and honestly, my husband's head since I stay home and teach our children and he goes to work every day, bending to the ever changing will of his employer--the USMC).

A Year of Walking in Faith

When I chose FAITH, I didn't know how it would affect my life. I just knew that after prayerful consideration I felt led to choose it. Through those five little letters I grew and changed just as the seasons around me did. I learned more about myself, about God, and about the wonderful strength having a little bit of FAITH can bring.

When Life Gets Too Hard

I'm sure you've seen or heard the saying, "When life gets too hard to stand, kneel". I think I need to focus on that. No matter what is going on in your life, always remember to pray. Pray because you're happy. Pray because you're sad. Just remember to do it. I'll make sure I remember… Continue reading When Life Gets Too Hard
