sufficient grace.

You don’t have to have it all figured out. You don’t have to power through all of life’s difficulties in your own strength. It’s okay to be weak. It’s okay to vulnerable. It’s okay to sad, soft, or *gasp* flawed. God’s power is not made perfect in your ability to be perfect or do it…

world mental health day.

Yesterday was World Mental Health Day, and I took some time to reflect on my own journey with mental health and illness. On February 6 of this year, I finally surrendered to the fact that my mental health needed to be addressed in a different way. For years, I have managed my anxiety and bouts…
