Birthday Reflection

There’s a lot that I would like to say today but I’m going to do my best to keep it from turning into a novel. Lol  ⠀ I’d like to take some time to reflect back over this year since tomorrow is my birthday and I’ll be turning 24.⠀ I can’t say that this year wasn’t hard. ⠀ I can’t say that I was always happy.⠀ I can’t say that nothing went wrong.⠀ I can’t say I had perfect health. ⠀ I can’t say that my life was perfect.⠀ I can’t say that I didn’t make mistakes. ⠀ I can’t say that it was the best year of my life.⠀ I can’t say that I didn’t let people down. ⠀

Mentoring Isn’t for the Faint of Heart

Mentoring is an important part of life. It's something that I feel like everyone needs. The idea of someone consistently pouring into your life that you trust to give you advice, call you out when you need it and just be there for you is amazing. However, let me just tell you that being a mentor … Continue reading Mentoring Isn’t for the Faint of Heart

Single as a Pringle…and ready to Mingle

Valentine's Day can be a sensitive subject especially to the girl that is single. You see everyone hypes up the day to be all sorts of romantic with candy, love and spending time with that significant other. Well, that's all fine and dandy if you are in a relationship but for the girls who are single as a pringle, it's just a sore reminder that at last, they are still single.  You see, I am 23 years old and never once has been on a date. Never once been in a relationship, and never once really been in love. Now sure I've had crushes on guys who I thought were hot or had a great personality but nothing ever came of it. I probably cried more over the fact that he didn't like me or notice me or wasn't into me when nothing ever happened. Does that make me crazy? Crying over a boy that was never mine, to begin with? 

Hope Planner Review

If you know anything about me you will know that I love a good planner. Lately, I have been looking for a new one and think I found my new favorite. I'd like to introduce you to the Hope Planner that was created by Heather Vreeland. It is a planner and prayer journal with room for scripture all in one. The layout is nice and clean and easy to use. It is a 6-month undated planner so you can start at any time.

Contentment, God Is All You Need!

I’m glad in God, far happier than you would ever guess—happy that you’re again showing such strong concern for me. Not that you ever quit praying and thinking about me. You just had no chance to show it. Actually, I don’t have a sense of needing anything personally. I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. I don’t mean that your help didn’t mean a lot to me—it did. It was a beautiful thing that you came alongside me in my troubles. ❤ Philippians 4:10-14 (MSG)  God is all you need! Putting that into practice is harder than you think especially in this day and age. Society and culture tell us one thing while the Bible tells us another.
