A couple of months ago, as a friend and I headed to a belated birthday celebration, my car decided to act up. The traffic light turned green, but the car wouldn’t go. Thankfully, God allowed it to get back to my place (which we weren’t far away from). We got out of my car and … More “Keep Trusting Me”
I force myself to walk slower. A seemingly unimaginable task for someone who has walked fast their whole life. I close my eyes, breathing deeply. Inhaling the scent of lavender as I walk though this small lavender farm. What is it about lavender that can almost instantly put our nerves at ease? A few days … More God Can Use You
Summer is officially here. Here in TN, summer has felt like it’s been around for a while already. This is the season when I miss the swimming pool from my childhood days. Besides swimming, there are a few other sweet reminders that summer has begun. Lightning bugs, trips to the beach, tropical breezes, juicy peaches. This past … More Keep On Shining
As the sun sets, I sit here trying to read a literary classic. It’s hard to focus with the sound of a lawnmower going back and forth in the background. As my brain tries to focus on the words in front of me, I can’t help but think of how I’m spending my time. I … More As Time Slips Away…
Have you ever had someone tell you to embrace your scars or to cover them up so tightly that no one will ever see? In January, I shared with the world one of my greatest scars. It’s a scar that still hasn’t completely healed and I don’t know if it ever will. It’s not a … More Embrace Your Scars

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the … More The Quarantine Battle
Isa. 64:8 “But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.” I’ve always loved the image of God molding me that pops into my head, when I read this verse. I picture God kneading a lump of clay and then … More Molding Day by Day
The other day, as I walked into work, a thought that ran through my mind was, “What can I do today to be a blessing to others?” The thought took me back for a second because I don’t normally have that thought as I’m walking into work, sad to say. It’s something I should be … More What Can I Do Today?
Do you remember the good ole days of taking tests what seemed like every other day or at least once a week while in school? No? I wasn’t a student that LOVED school. I loved history class, lunch and recess…but that’s pretty much it. If you sat me down and gave me a test a … More Did You Pass The Test?
I don’t know about you, but I love olive oil. Take me to an Italian restaurant where they bring you warm, fresh bread and a small dish of olive oil and spices to dip the bread in and I’m set. I wish there was an option on the menu where you could just keep eating … More Crushed like Olives
