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!

Girl Scouts messed me up. 

Guys, I'm messed up and I think Girl Scouts played a decent role in the messing.  I don't know what it's like today, but we had this motto or way of doing things when I was a scout as a kid. We never left a place the way we found it; it was always better… Continue reading Girl Scouts messed me up.

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. This sucks because a lot of the problems I've had in my recent Christian history is with hypocrites. I've let so many people come into my life… Continue reading on hypocrites and Jesus.

I need a doctor.

I'm reading a book right now called "3:16" by Max Lucado and I would really like to share this awesome comparison he made about the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

why I’m not a perfectionist.

I'm not perfect. But sometimes, I feel like some of the people around me, especially those closest to me, just expect me to be perfect. Whether it be that I always keep my emotions in check, or I graduate from college, or I don't drink, or I don't gossip, or I don't have a rockin'… Continue reading why I’m not a perfectionist.

a brief testimony on baptism.

When I was baptized, I literally felt the Holy Spirit wash over me. Yes, of course, I had water being washed over my skin, but I mean... when the pastor lifted me out of that water, it was like He ran over every inch of me, and all the water settled at the center of my chest. It entered… Continue reading a brief testimony on baptism.
