Unforseen

As my morning began, everything that could go wrong did. Thankful for the beautiful snow that was much anticipated, it became a burden, quite  quickly. With our morning worship cancelled, it didn’t change the fact that I still had to minister out. After waiting all night, I got the call at 9:40am that service was…

DIY: Shoe Refashion

Hi there, I pray that you all have been blessed! I’m so glad to be back with you (no one ever said how taxing grad school would be, smh). Anywho, God is good 🙂 I want to share a quick DIY with you that is near and dear to my heart. If you know anything about me, you…

Song 440

But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day when I act, says the Lord…

Anxious Annie

Do you ever find yourself worried about little nothings? Maybe your nothings aren’t small; maybe they are serious, life issues. Nonetheless, the worry is real. It’s a feeling you just can’t describe. Trust me, I know because I’ve been there. Heck, I was there today. I’m a checklist type of person (I literally have task-lists…

DIY Terrarium (Easy & Affordable)

Hello All, Happy September! I want to start by announcing that I will be posting once a week. Isn’t that exciting – compared to my emotional, sporadic posting?! Lol I promise that I will do better! I’ve done a little house cleaning. I have decided to break my blog up into 3 main categories: Faith,…

Frivolous Funk

I must admit, I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately and quite frankly, it’s hard to explain why. Not because I don’t understand my feelings or that I don’t have the words to say… Sometimes you just feel unhappy. If I could be completely honest, my unhappiness was stemming from a frustrated place…

Assurance in Ability

As I stumbled across my personal devotion for the day, I was inspired by this image. It states, “And if not, He is still Good”. The thought for this image was derived from the passage of scripture in the 3rd chapter of Daniel. If you’ve ever been to any amount of Sunday school, or children’s church I can…

QTIP.

Have you ever been in a situation in which you really felt slighted? Maybe someone cut you off while you were driving almost causing you to crash… or could it have been that time you were having a bad day and someone made it their business to point out the fact that you had a…

Seven Reasons to Smile: February

As I reflect on the month of February, I’d like to take the time to highlight seven occasions that truly brought me genuine joy. It’s my goal to do this at the beginning of every month as a reminder to meditate on the wonderful things that God has done. I am learning the importance of  pausing for praise. Catching…

Word Snatcher.

I’m sure you’ve heard just as many times as I have that, “communication is key”. I guess it never dawned on me— a communication specialist, who has studied and currently works in the communications field, thus requiring me to fluently communicate daily—the importance of this concept and how it affects every aspect of our lives. Go figure. Just…

Ode to Obedience

I was reminded today of the importance of obedience, and I just wanted to share. It’s always my prayer that something from my life can be used as a learning tool so that younger generations don’t have to make the same mistakes that I did and can learn life lessons without having to experience the…

Study Kit

I love, love, love new studying materials! We just started an amazing new Bible study series on the Book of James at my church and I was inspired to improve my studying habits. I went to Wal-Mart and bought new studying materials: Bible study/Sunday morning notebook, New high quality-non-bleeding highlighters (I’m sure you all can…
