Do You Need A Refreshing Rain?

It’s been raining a lot. The kind of rain that ruins plans and makes you want to drive immediately home. The kind that leaves you feeling vitamin D deficient and bummed. Also, I’ve been in a slump (just like the sky), which has completely sucked. I’ve been edging my way out of it. It’s been slow and painful. It’s mostly …

Summertime is officially here. It’s time for lazy afternoons at the beach, sipping lemonade, taking random naps on the weekend and absorbing the sunshine before the winter sets in again.

How To Enjoy The Journey You Are On Today

I really love flying. I was on a flight home the other night, gazing out of the window at the beautiful lights twinkling below me, thinking about how cool it is that we can be in two different states/countries in a matter of hours. Then, I started thinking about road trips and how I may actually love them more. It …

When You Feel Like You Don’t Belong

I still remember the day these words were spoken to me at a prophetic training event at church. “I just felt like the Lord says sometimes you feel downcast about yourself. I saw you with a crown on your head.  And He just wanted you to know … He wants you to see you how He sees you. He says …

Finding The Peace Of God When You Aren’t Living The American Dream

New opportunities can be scary. Even opportunities that we have been praying and believing God for: a new promotion, new marriage, new home. These are all wonderful and positive life experiences, but they can also be frightening if you’re not sure what to expect. How do you prepare for changes when they come your way? How will you know if …
