If not you, then who?

Last night during IF: Continued at church, the question was asked, "What are we doing about the things taking place on our watch, the injustices of our day?"  Just a few that popped in my head immediately were human trafficking, racism, domestic violence, etc.  When we make that change from being just a "fan" of...

The Best YES!

Nine years ago on this exact day, I said the best YES!  I said "yes" to spending the rest of my life with Nicholas Charles.  It was quite the epic proposal and a day that will forever be etched onto my heart and in my mind.  Nick is quite the prankster and was able to... Continue Reading →

What’s saving your life right now?

One of my favorite podcasts is Jen Hatmaker's For the Love Podcast. At the end of every episode she asks her guests, "What's saving your life right now?"
