Seize The Day

Hello friends, So it is nearly approaching midnight and life is pretty good right now.  Today a theme has been placed in my mind that I thought would be good to share. Seize The Day  So often we just go through day by day thinking about what we are going to do next… your next class, your plans for the evening, and what not…  And so often we miss the opportunities that are constantly surrounding us.  What if we got off our iPhones, and started seeing who was around us who needs to see the love of Christ. So often[…]

Don’t Panic in the Pool

Welcome to Life. Here we provide ups, downs, loops, and a few corkscrews. I know what you’re all wondering; where’s the map to get around this giant? Wellllll, let me tell you. There isn’t one. (per say: let’s be real, the Bible gives answers in example and truth) Day to day life can be full of surprises, letdowns, build-ups, and utterly devastating moments. As cliche as it sounds, how you react is key. Let’s say you’re driving without insurance, accidentally, and you kind of bump into another person’s bumper. WHAT TO DO?!?! Keep calm and be an adult. My mom[…]

Make it Like Your Birthday Everyday

I’d like to start this blog off wishing myself a happy birthday, as it was on Tuesday.And then I’ll wish my birthday twin Will a happy birthday, too. …And then the same for my bestie Konner whose birthday is today!! And next but no less important than those above, I’d like to wish my roommate Ashley a happy birthday, because anytime any of her friends have a birthday, she claims it for herself and accepts gifts. …aaaaaaaaand Finally, I’d like to thank Katy Perry for writing the song “Birthday” which trumps 22 by T-Swift. (go listen) So I turned 22[…]

New Dorm Room Update

Hello friends! Ok just an extra quick post to show you guys my new room!  I am rooming with my good friend Mckenna this semester and we are both very excited!  We pretty much redecorated everything, so I thought I would share! Here is an overview from the door! We have Christmas lights all the way around our room for some extra light.     This is my bed!  Above it are bulletin boards with my favorite pictures of my friends and family!  And the one in the middle is of Venice, Italy which is my dream place to go…[…]

Advice Session 3 | Dealing With College Stress

Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful winter break!  Right now life is all about getting back into the swing of things… New classes, new transfer friends, and for me a new roommate! Now for me when life starts to get kind of crazy (going to classes, working, trying to get homework done, keeping a semi-clean dorm room, and attempting to maintain a social life) I get a bit overwhelmed.  But there are a few things I can always rely on! 1. Spend time with the Lord!  This is by far the most important and helpful thing you[…]

Grounded

This break was full of adventures! Texas, a pretty girl, and an intense Jesus filled retreat; just to name the highlights. One of the most consistent adventures I embarked on was to a local coffee shop that warms my soul. Mead’s Corner. Click on this ^^^^ This place is the epitome of serenity. It offers a peace that just has the Holy Spirit as the composition of the atmosphere. Alongside the fair trade coffee they have gelato, beautiful art/photography, an amazing staged area used for artists, and a quality view into the city.This place is my inspiration, my hangout, and[…]

Welcome 2014! {Word of the Year}

Hello friends! I can’t believe Christmas break is coming to a close… and I absolutely can’t even comprehend we are living in 2014!  Where has the time gone?! So for this weeks blog, in honor of the new year, I think it is only fitting to share with you something that my church has done for the last couple of years in the new year.  Our pastor challenged us last year to choose a word of the year.  This “word” would be a theme of the year for your walk with the Lord.  At first I thought it was kind[…]

The Reason For the Season Reflection

Hello friends!  Just throwin a quick blog post at you over some reflections I have had this Christmas break! I have lately been thinking a lot about grace.  I know it’s weird to think about forgiveness and grace around Christmas, usually that’s an Easter topic.  But I have realized this over the last week, Jesus was born and he lived and died to extend grace and love to all of us.  WOW!  His grace is something to reflect on not just around his death and resurrection but in His birth and all the times in between these celebrations. I often[…]

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety-Jig

Hey blog world. By now, you’ve probably figured out that it’s officially Christmas Break, almost 2 weeks in counting! I’ve successfully completed 2 TV series from Investigation Discovery on Netflix, along with a season of Desperate Housewives and 6 movies. Aka, I’m bored out of my MIND. At home I have my parents, my two little brothers, and my 2 dogs: Patch and Bailey. My dad has been out of town for work and his flight was delayed. My mom works all day. My brother, Alex, works 2 jobs when he’s not in classes. My baby brother, Asher, is a[…]
