This past weekend there was a lot of hate and tragedy that occurred. To be honest, I’m still processing through it all myself. At a later time, I may share more of my thoughts but for tonight only few words need to be said.
Let’s love each other as Christ Jesus loved us, reader. Instead of spreading hate, let’s love those around us, support them, and build each other up. We don’t need to agree, but we can still offer love.
1 Corinthians 13 is known as the love chapter and it’s one of my favorite passages of Scripture. You might be asking, “What is love? What does love look like?” Well, let me Read More
Tonight I’m taking a step back and giving some time to a wonderful young lady I had the pleasure of meeting a few years ago. Her soul is just as beautiful as her writing and I’m honored to give her time to share her heart tonight. Introducing Carrie Cabush!
Paralysis is not confined to the physical body. It can plague the mind and the heart, in ways admittedly figurative, but threatening nonetheless. Too often, we choose to do nothing, to believe in nothing, because we might be wrong. We fall prey to the fallacy that the world’s problems are Read More
The sun had just begun to set and only minutes remained before the park closed for the night. The parents and children were all gathering their things from the day and were on their way out. She opened the gate that stood between the park and the parking lot, and stepped inside.
She heard the children laughing and talking, loudly at first. And then as the distance between she and the children grew, the noise slowly dissipated. In just moments, the park was empty and all that remained, was her.

This past weekend I ran off to the beach multiple times. I referenced it in my last post, but a particular incident that happened has stuck with me and I feel compelled to share.
As I sat on the beach, I looked around at the ocean, at the children laughing, and at the waves playfully crashing into the shore. As my eyes surveyed what was going on around me, I stopped on Read More
With the gorgeous weather we’re having, I decided to escape to the beach. It was emptier than I expected on this Memorial Day weekend, but it was a welcomed surprise.
I’ve had a lot going on in my mind lately – mainly a lot of questions without answers. Am I living out my purpose? What should my next investment be? Why am I surprised when people disappoint me?

And every time, I politely smile
When you pick a friend or a spouse, do you want someone who crumbles under the weight of tragedy or misfortune? Or do you want someone who is able to Read More
Tonight I had dinner with a close friend. I had texted her spur of the moment yesterday evening, expressing that I needed a friend to talk to and asked if she was free. She responded that she was and so, we planned a dinner date.
