Wild At HeartΒ 

“We cannot escape the law that would persuade all things to remain wild or to return to a wild state after a period of cultivation. What is true of the field is true also of the soul if we are but wise enough to see it.” A.W. Tozer, “The Root of the Righteous” After a…

How I Experienced God During Lent

As a protestant/evangelical, one might be surprised that I would participate in Lent. I confess that I do not know much about the history of Lent, but what I understand it to be is an intentional time to make a sacrifice of something temporal to gain something eternal. When I think of fasting, I think…

Lent, Fasting and Me

Nearly two months in to 2014 and this is my first post. I am very pleased to tell you that I have been busy reading my chronological Bible as I indicated my intention to do in my last post of 2013. I have read through Genesis, Job and Exodus along with John 1 (alongside Genesis…

The Whole Scoop on my Whole30 – Part 1

My husband and I completed our first Whole30 on January 30 and stuck to it through to the end with no cheats. I documented the experience on Instagram and Facebook by posting a photo and a few reflective observations at the end of each day. I didn’t set out to post these daily photo updates,…

Aslan is on the move

I just love this quote from C.S. Lewis’s “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe”. It’s probably one of my most favorite literature quotes of all time. There is something so powerful and exciting and hard to really wrap my arms around entirely within the context and the feel of a very short sentence that,…

Growing Up GOP

{Note: I wrote the following blog post over two years ago. Reposting today for your election day reading pleasure πŸ™‚ }Β  I recently came across a New York Times article titled, “Why Teenagers Today May Grow Up Conservative.” I found these observations to be quite legitimate and wanted to share how my own personal experience…

Goals

Well, October is gone and I did not write for 31 days. I did good though. I did better than I thought I would and better than I did last year. Despite failing to write for 31 days, I am still proud of what I accomplished. I learned alot about myself through putting together these…

Mail, Mix-Tapes and Me

When I was in middle school, two of my favorite things were mail and mix tapes. I loved giving and receiving both. We’ve already established that I developed a love for writing early in life, so writing letters was a regular part of my years. And having an uncle who is a DJ took mix…

Is There Wisdom in Waiting?

We are all waiting for something. And that something we are waiting for is a really big deal. Culture encourages us to be proactive. Move! Act! Take the Bull by the Horns! Yes, there is a season for action. But sometimes we either CANT act, or we are invited to WAIT. I almost annoyed myself…

How Do You Find The Time?

If I want writing to become a bigger part of my life, I need to carve out specific time to do it each day. That in and of itself is daunting and discouraging because I really don’t carve out time for anything consistently. I dream that I will be the kind of person who spends…
