The Comparison Trap

I really struggle with comparison.  I don't know if it's in my DNA or if it's a result of the way I was raised, but one thing I know for sure is that I have always, and still do, struggle with comparison. And only recently have I truly realized just how ugly that can get.... Continue Reading →

The Gates of Glory

Sin is a cancer and we are all sick. The other day, my husband and I finally got around to watching Annihilation. For those who haven't seen the film, it's centered around this mysterious life-force called the Shimmer that appeared out of nowhere and is spreading.

All My Hope Is In Jesus

Today, I don't have a fancy post. I don't have a verse I want to focus on or a direction for a blog post. Really, today, I just want to remind you, my brother or sister in the faith, of one truth that God has been reminding me of lately: God is good.  Our God... Continue Reading →

I Should’ve Been A Lawyer

Anyone who knows me well knows that my life long dream was to be a lawyer.

In middle school, I joined drama to... Continue Reading →

Hope

I've always been attracted to the concept of justice. Before I was saved, I wasn't exactly sure what that meant for my life. I simply knew things weren't fair in this world and justice was lacking. I thought becoming a lawyer would help me become a part of the solution. It had been my dream... Continue Reading →
