God has been after me to share a perspective on things that involves really stripping myself naked before those who may visit this blog. It's so scary to do, but just this moment I felt a pulling by God to step out in faith and be as transparent as I can be, so here I… Continue reading The Command to Speak Truth
I just experienced probably one of the most painful experiences with racism I've ever encountered. Before I go into what happened, let me give a little background. As the country is going through an upheaval of all the buried racist tensions that have been here for a million years, soon after Trump's election, I found… Continue reading Feeling The Pain of Racism
Discovering Bible journaling has been an answer to prayer, as I had been asking God to show me how to go deeper in my time with Him.

So anyone reading this post, realizes that even though I choose to follow a faith that has very conservative views, I in NO way support forcing the whole world to live by… Continue reading What If the Apostle Paul Was Gay? (part 2)
This week, I took the time to look through the wedding pictures of a dear friend who married his partner. It was not easy. I wrestled with doing that, before I sat myself down and did. Why did I do it? Because I thought of the number of times I have reached out to hug… Continue reading What If the Apostle Paul Was Gay
I never thought that I had experienced the miracle of healing. I know that God is able to do anything, but for the most part, I have only seen that when a person gets ill with a serious illness, even with prayers, they die...eventually (this coming from a girl who has seen so many deaths… Continue reading Healed from Lyme Disease
For most of the years before getting married, I struggled with feeling beautiful. I had come to a place of accepting that this body, this face, this skin tone was given to me by God and I accepted it, but when I looked in the mirror and compared myself with other women, I failed to… Continue reading Feeling Beautiful
