Though I Thought I Could Do it All, I Could Not Do it All Well

Growing up in the countryside of north Florida, I was a simple girl. School, chicken, Disney channel, my few select friends, church. I wasn’t thinking about my future much besides college. That was the goal. That was my purpose. Get good grades. Go to college for something that makes sense. However, once I got into…

What are your Intentions, Really?

“Intentionality is key.” When I listed this as one of the life lessons I’ve learned before I turned 27, I don’t think I truly realized how important this lesson really was. Now that I’m almost 29 (OH MY GOSH, I’M ABOUT TO BE 29…….) Sorry. Now that I’m almost 29, this statement basically dictates 89.9%…

Time to Make Good on that Promise

If you’ve been following along with my blog from the very beginning, specifically in 2017, you’ll remember I wrote a post about the 27 Things I Learned before Turning 27. I was a comprehensive list of all my life lessons I had realized to that point in my life. During that post, I promised to…

I Admit, I Hated Reading my Bible

I have a confession to make. At one point in my life, I hated reading my Bible. It’s not because I didn’t love Jesus. It’s not because I didn’t desire to be closer to God and learn more about him. I just at one point hated it. I would literally force myself to read. I…

Die to Relationship Expectations

In high school, I convinced myself that I would follow the trend of my two sisters that came before me and marry at 21. At 20 years old, I was dating a guy and the pressure was on. So when my 21st birthday rolled around and there was not even an engagement ring in sight,…

5 Ways to Better Keep your Word

This year I beat myself up heavily about not keeping my word to someone on a project that literally would have taken me a week tops to complete. After speaking with them about it later and expressing my guilt, they were fine but I was left feeling like a disappointment. I vowed to do my…

5 Ways to Seek God More

Hey everyone! So if you’re anything like me (Christian, seeking out purpose and how to be closer to God), you know that sometimes it can be a struggle to make time for “digging deep” in the presence of God and learning more of Him. But also, if you’re anything like me, you know that you…

You Should Go and Love Yourself

For as long as I can remember, I have disliked things about my body. When I was a kid, I hated the gap in my teeth. My big lips. The acne on my skin. My kid belly. Even my feet. I was so self-conscious of myself, constantly playing the comparison game with people around me…

In SUMMER! *insert Frozen soundtrack*

Hey Fam! So, last Thursday was the first day of summer. I was all excited about it until I stepped outside into 92 degree weather in humid North Florida. Seriously. Summer for us should have begun on April 21st, not June. Nevertheless, I’m excited about this summer (and just the rest of this year period)….

27 Things I Accepted before Turning 27

Hey, hey, hey! Just dropping in to share a little wisdom I’ve gained over the past few years. Because the list is so long, I will be developing some of these into blog posts later. Until then, let me know what you think!   The 27 Things I’ve Accepted (or Learned) before Turning 27 I am…
