life lived well, self care & self love

learnings thus far.

I wrote this four years ago. It still holds true, though I struggle with so much of it. Maybe there are things in there you can relate to as well. I'm grateful tonight for the crappy days that come around every so often because they remind me that the good days should be appreciated more… Continue reading learnings thus far.

what a crisis can do.

I always want to put an 'h' in crisis. I'm not sure why. That's irrelevant and is just a passing observation. Right now, I have no filter. It's no secret that I've been through a few crises in my life. From what I've experienced, I've realized that a crisis can either tear relationships apart or… Continue reading what a crisis can do.

part of the process.

It might seem like all I've done so far this year is hold babies and make friends with dogs and drink a lot of coffee. That's if you look at my Instagram feed. I suppose, though, if you looked over the past three months as a whole, you would see that I have experienced many… Continue reading part of the process.

what have you.

A lot of times we look at someone who becomes something great and we think it's instant and we always wonder how they got to that point and 100% of the time there's no such thing as an instant success. When you hear the backstory, it's called pain. ~ Brian Johnson Sometimes it takes me… Continue reading what have you.

thin places.

Supposedly, there is an ancient Celtic saying that heaven and earth are only three feet apart, but in the thin places that distance is even shorter. We'll ignore the fact that the ancient Celts probably didn't count distances in feet for now and focus on the thin places, where the veil between holy and human… Continue reading thin places.

burkina faso recap.

Hello, all! I'm not quite sure how to write a comprehensive post about my trip to Burkina Faso with my church and Compassion International. I could probably wax poetic about how I left a big chunk of my heart in Burkina Faso, but I think that can easily be communicated through my pictures and what… Continue reading burkina faso recap.

life lived well, stories

there are no words.

I wish I had words to describe the music, the lights, the excitement, the adrenalin. I don't think there are words to describe seeing my favorite band play a live show in a fantastic venue. Seeing a live show reminds me that I’m alive and that I love the feeling when I can feel the… Continue reading there are no words.

beauty in the grime.

I took this picture the other night after I dropped Keenan off at youth group. As I was driving down the hill, I noticed how spectacular the sunset was. The pictures I take of sunsets never do them justice. As I was driving along to my own church function, I thought about how grimy and… Continue reading beauty in the grime.
