Stand To Save #LeahSharibu

Leah Sharibu was an ordinary schoolgirl, until she made an extraordinary stand for her faith after horrific events. You see, Leah has spent eight months in captivity after being one of 109 schoolgirls abducted by an extremist group on February 19, 2018 in Nigeria. Some girls were released after denouncing their faith, but LEAH WOULD […]

Selfish Christianity.

Can I be real? Like really real? I was a selfish Christian for way too long. Courtship and marriage fixed that area real quick. There is no possible way to be involved in positive, thriving, deep relationships with other people and continue to be self absorbed. Now, I would have said I was so giving, […]

Basically “Good People”

I was reading Luke 18:18-30, this passage deals with a rich ruler that comes to Jesus and basically tells Jesus that he, the rich ruler, is sinless. He comes to Jesus talking about how he’s kept all the commandments since he was young, and he tells Jesus how he (the rich ruler) was basically a “good […]

Tips for Surviving Long Distance

This afternoon my hubby and I heard a podcast about how couples who meet online tend to do just as well as couples who first meet in person. With the rise of dating apps people are just meeting and staying connected differently. It’s not a bad or good thing, it’s just…different. Although Evans and I […]

Complete joy…

Life is hard. Let’s just clear the air and say it. Yes…people try to smoothe over that very important fact when we are children. We spend our childhoods wanting to be adults, and then when we get here we want to go back! Maybe it’s strange, but I kind of find it comforting that life […]

Days of Our Life.

I grew up watching the popular t.v. soap opera “Days of Our Lives.” This show was full of drama… mainly surrounding love and romantic relationships. There was always an unrequited love, love affair, or love triangle happening in the show. There were always broken marriage vows, and secrets needing to be revealed. Unknowingly, I was taking […]

A Happily Ever After

Hi there! It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve posted. And I have a lot to catch you all up on!

Never Give Up

I met a woman named Luz yesterday. I walked into her little bakery a little downcast, but when I entered I immediately saw a bible on a hardwood table near the door. I was ordering a wedding cake, but I didn’t have the money for the cake. I walked into the small bakery on faith. I’d never heard […]

You’re Not Alone.

Deuteronomy 31:8 It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you, he will not leave you or forsake you.
