I’m good! It’s okay! I’m fine! 

I'm reading a book right now called Nothing To Prove by Jennie Allen and it's great. I'm sure I'll write about so much coming out of my heart because of this book in the near future. But right now, I've got to be real about something. Because Jennie talks a little bit about this in… Continue reading I’m good! It’s okay! I’m fine!

on hypocrites and Jesus.

I was talking with someone lately about Christian things, and nothing makes me feel more like a freaking hypocrite than giving godly advice, even if it's good advice.

tell me your story again. 

I've found that writing in the moment of a thought or a feeling has done me much better as of late than sitting on something to write about and work through later.

This wasn't a dream I had asked… Continue reading even when it’s not, it is well.

the law of the garbage truck.

  Today, I read a chain email that I'm actually really glad I read. It was titled, "The Law of the Garbage Truck," and I feel like sharing it! This is what it said:  "One day, I hopped in a taxi and we took off to the airport. We were driving in the right lane… Continue reading the law of the garbage truck.

I love you anyway.

An interesting statement was made in church today and I can't agree with it more: People will always disappoint, but God never will. This is so true. Whether it's your spouse, parents, boyfriend/girlfriend, siblings, children, friends, family members, whoever... It doesn't matter. They will disappoint you; maybe just a few times in your lifetime, maybe constantly. They just… Continue reading I love you anyway.
