With Father's Day a week from today, I can't help but think of my Dad. Yes, that tiny little girl in the picture below is yours truly. This is one of my favorite pictures of me and my dad. Life was simple and I adored my dad to my core.....
Christianity and Depression.
You may be thinking these two words would never go hand in hand right? I mean Christians are supposedly happy, Christians never have problems, Christians are always acting like their lives are great, right? They...
One of my favorite ways to keep in the Word is with my Bible app. It provides you with daily Bible verses to read and not only that but they have a plethora of reading plans and devotionals you can start. It makes reading the Bible everyday so...

Blogging, Faith, Family, God
It's been just over 2 years now since I began my little opinionated blog and I have to tell you, I never thought I'd actually be making some moola on the side from...
Bible, Faith, God

Faith, Family, God, Love, Marriage
When you feel helpless, feel hopeful knowing God is in control. Recently I have been going through many trials in my life. Big ones. Tough ones. Lots of changes. Lots of unknowns. And lots of "God, what the crap is happening?" Things that are out...

I'm here at home a couple of days before Thanksgiving contemplating everything I have to be thankful for. Being thankful isn't just about the holiday. In the Bible it tells us we should give thanks always, in ALL circumstances. Easy right? With...

Reflect on all of the good in your life and be thankful.
Since November is here, I think it would be an appropriate time to reflect on what God has given me and blessed me with. I will be the first to openly say that everything I have, I do...

You know the ones... The evil thoughts that creep up while you are getting ready for an interview, or preparing dinner, or dressing up to go out, or maybe you're just sitting at home doing nothing. Whatever it is, those negative, evil little...
We've all been there before. Whether we are talking about something small like a project or something that is more serious. We've all been to the point where we just want to give up and say "screw it, I'm done."
