4 things I’ve Learned in my Third Year of Marriage

Well friends, Riley and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary on September 5, 2018. I'm a couple of months late, but it's become a little tradition for me to take some time to reflect on the past year of marriage and share a few things that I've learned. I have a tendency to live my... Continue Reading →

I've recently felt convicted that if my ultimate goal is to become more like Christ, I actually need to  know Christ. The obvious place to go when wanting to learn more about Jesus and the life he lived is the Bible. So, I've been intentionally spending time in the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) reading...

You Make Me Brave

A few months ago, Riley and I jumped on the Movie Pass train. If you're unfamiliar, Movie Pass is a company that allows you to watch one movie a day, everyday, for $10/mo. As  you know, going to the movies is quite expensive, so this deal seems like it's too good to be true. We... Continue Reading →

It wasn’t you.

Since moving into my parents house almost two months ago (wow!) my morning and evening commute has doubled. Instead of being able to leave my apartment and drive 12 minutes to work, it now takes me 25 minutes, on a good day. Besides having to fill up my gas tank more, I really don't have...

My last... Continue Reading →

I could begin writing out a long list of excuses as to why I haven't been keeping up with my blog like I had originally intended, but the truth is, they're just... Continue Reading →

Embracing Eye Contact

I was recently out in public and I ran into someone I knew.  I knew this person well enough that they were able to recall a few specific things about my life and they struck up a conversation by asking me a question that required a thoughtful response. I was happy to engage in conversation... Continue Reading →

Time with God, Lately.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a conference with a group of middle school students from my church. Nothing builds your character quite like being surrounded by squirrely middle schoolers excited about a weekend away from their parents. The thrill of knowing you could get pegged in the head with a... Continue Reading →

Momma’s Wisdom: Something Better

Have you ever gone to someone and shared an idea that you're trying to justify in your own mind? If you're like me, you share this idea for a couple of reasons. One, to make yourself feel better about your (potentially selfish) idea and two, to get some feedback. But if you're honest, you really... Continue Reading →
