• WHO AM I?

    Something I have learned this year is the importance of self-discovery – learning who you are, who you are made to become, and loving yourself through that. By learning who I am, I have learned some other valuable lessons as well. I have grown to believe that this is not only a good practice in our daily lives but also a spiritual discipline. Learning about myself has allowed me to learn how the Lord has created me and to be able to connect with Him on a deeper level. A few things have helped me to learn who I am. These include: Knowing valuable women who love me to pieces…

  • How My Life Has Changed.

    It’s actually been what seems like a lifetime since I have even been on this blog. It crosses my mind every once in a while but honestly doesn’t stick around too much. College is hard, y’all – emotionally, physically, spiritually, and educationally. It is honestly hard to slow down and just write, especially when I’d almost rather be watching Netflix when I have a moment to breathe and relax. So much has changed in my life. I’m halfway through college already (WHAT). I’ve been through many friends, guys, campus ministries, and Netflix binges. I’ve learned a lot, and I thought I would just write about a few things I’ve learned.…

  • The Only Man for Me.

    Wow, life has been so busy for the last several months – so much so that I have not had time to really even think about my blog, and I miss it dearly. I wanted to share with you a few things that I’ve learned during my first semester of college. I was just going to put it all in one post, but there are way to many important things that a singular post would be too limited and way too long. So for this one, I want to start with some things I’ve learned about guys and God’s plan for me regarding that area of my life. Going into college,…

  • Satan Knows.

    Guys, Satan knows. He knows exactly when you are at your weakest and at your strongest. He knows when you are closest to God and attacks even harder then. He knows when you are doing things for God’s kingdom and following His will, which he so despises. This is something I’ve felt so much over the last few days, weeks, and even months. He knows that I am trying to find my confidence in God alone. He knows that I am trying to falling in love with Christ more and more each day. He doesn’t like this at all. I have to be honest with you guys. Even though I’ve experienced…

  • I’ve Changed.

    Yup. The title says it all. I believe I am a completely different person from the time you last heard from me on here. However, I’ve been thinking about this blog all summer. I honestly didn’t know what to do with it anymore. At the start of the summer, writer’s block was taking a big hit. I just couldn’t think of anything to write about, and I wanted everything I wrote to be absolutely perfect. As the summer went along, God changed me more and more into who He destined for me to be, but we’ll get to that whole story later. The more I changed, the more this blog…

  • Each Day A New

    If you’re like me, you often get wound up in mistakes, worries, struggles, etc. — past, present, and even future. This often weighs me down and stresses me out more than I should. Everyday has its own struggles and things to worry about. It’s often hard not to get caught up in past mistakes and worry about being “good enough” or even being overbearing to people. However, with all of the struggle and worry and problems the world offers, we have hope and faith in Jesus Christ that he will guide us through. God has granted us with the gift of beginning each day as a new day. We lay our…

  • Good Enough // Revisited

    One of my latest posts was titled Good Enough. To that, I received so many amazing and encouraging comments and thoughts — more than I could’ve expected. I first wanted to thank each of you who read that post and responded to it. It reassured to me that I have a life full of support from people that love me. As you know, I was timid/afraid to share with you my feelings. The response was uplifting, and for that, I am beyond thankful. I wanted to revisit that subject as it has been several months. Overall, I would say I am in a much better place than I was then.…

  • A Round-Up of Inspiration // Makeup

    Makeup is all about your personal style. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t take some inspiration from trends and celebrities! I wanted to share with you a few trends I’ve been loving and a celebrity I get some inspiration from. Enjoy!   Gotta Get That Glow I used to be obsessed with keeping my face totally matte; any sign of shine or dewy-ness and I would have to go powder immediately… WHY?? Did I not know that glowy skin looks healthy and youthful?? I had a change of heart once I began seeing what wonders a bit of highlight can do for your complexion. I love to apply cream highlighter on…

  • Good Enough

    If I’m honest, I’m nervous to post this — I actually wrote it about a 3 weeks ago haven’t felt the courage until now. It’s kind of a touchy and serious subject for me… I want my blog to be encouraging and uplifting, and I want you to get to know me through what I write. I want to be an open book. I want to be honest with you. I want to inspire you because we are on this journey together. In order to get to know me, I think you should know something that I have struggled with lately that I am absolutely positive many of you struggle with…

  • Autumn Style // 1 Sweater, 2 Ways

    Having a friend who owns a nice camera and loves taking pictures is something I’m thankful for. Recently, my friends, sister, and I ventured outside to a couple of different locations for a photoshoot. I’ve been wanting to do a style profile on here, and this was the perfect opportunity! I also included a couple of pictures of my friend Emma and my sister Abby because they’re super pretty! Here you have a couple of my favorite outfits. I love the layered fall look and mainly stick to neutrals in the fall and winter months. I wanted to share with you how you can dress up or dress down a simple…
