chaos coordinator.

I heard the song “I am Healed” by River Valley Worship for the first time during my first (official) Holy Yoga practice. My life was in a chaotic season (and to some degree, always is, but I’ll get to that) and I was scared of the potential outcomes. A lot of it was unknown and…

never again will I believe that I’ve arrived.

A while back, I was scrolling through my own blog (the vanity, I know) and just reading headlines. And I came across one I’d written a while back called “Sam found faith.” I didn’t actually click it to read it, but I believe it was about a situation I’d faced with faith, and how when…

make your promises simple.

I got married a week ago. It’s officially been 7 days since my husband and I gathered 30-some of the most important people in our lives, stared each other right in the face, and made our commitment to one another totally legit. It was beautiful, fun, laid back, cozy, and totally natural. I had peace…
