Quite a few years ago, in the midst of college, I prayed a very simple prayer that changed my life. I prayed that God would break my heart for what breaks His. At the time it was such an innocent prayer and I had no idea how one single prayer would change my life. It … Continue reading Love Conquers All
I’ve been really selfish with my words the past few months. I go through seasons where I share of all of my words with the world and seasons where I cling tightly to my words and don’t share them with anyone. A little over a month ago, a dear friend of mine spoke some words … Continue reading But What if You Fly?
It’s been a while since I’ve written. And for good reason. The end of the summer got busy. Weddings, work, packing, moving, starting school, and settling into a new routine. And somewhere along the way, I began trying to heal a broken heart. Hearts get broken all the time, right? So maybe you can relate. … Continue reading I Don’t Want Your Pity
I don’t do politics. I don’t watch the news. Mostly because it scares me. But social media keeps me informed. Many of you reading this will probably frown upon my lack of knowledge but oh well. It was probably 4 or 5 years ago I started praying that the Lord would break my heart for … Continue reading A Call To Prayer

This summer, I have 7 weddings. For 7 very different, incredible couples. I’m surrounded by married couples, engaged couples, and dating couples. I just got out of a 2 year relationship with a really incredible guy. But as I look back, as I reflect on that two years, I start to notice one area we … Continue reading Slow down…you’re only 22
As we grow, as we age, we experience new seasons of life. If we look back on where we’ve come from, we can all see the ebb and flow of life; different seasons we’ve been through. Different seasons teach us different things. I look back on the short life I’ve lived so far and I … Continue reading Seasons
In a world where we have people and information at our fingertips, I find it harder and harder to be alone. It’s so easy to pick up the phone and browse Facebook, Instagram, and text or call someone. It’s so difficult to be alone. I find that I don’t know how to enjoy myself. The … Continue reading Be alone and rest
I’m a writer. Although I’d never classify myself as a writer (because I think of a writer as someone who publishes books), at the heart of things, I’m a writer. It’s how I express myself. It’s how I communicate and process. I’m learning how incredibly healthy it is for me to write. As I write, … Continue reading Freedom from expression
