Thankful

“I am thankful that I have You in my life Guiding me through hard times and strife You have made it clear in my eyes Without You there is no life” Those are lyrics to a song I wrote when I was 15. I love this song. I will share the new version once it’s…

Cloudy Days

During my toughest of times, I looked at these mountains. My favorite is when there would be clouds like this directly above them. I would often capture these images to remember that even in my darkest hours, God is there. Even when others won’t hear me, He does. When others ask me “Are you really…

Do You Ever…

Do you ever feel like you are often defending your name in situations with people and how they perceive you? I know I do. As I was scrolling through my personal Instagram and sifting through what I want to see on my feed and what I am no longer wanting to feed my spirit, I…

Life Change

About 11 months ago, my husband and I had made a decision to not have any more children. We were content with having 4 children. 3 girls and 1 boy was perfect (unless you asked our son, he had been hoping for a brother for quite some time). We had also hoped that we would…

Favoritism?

For a few days, I have remained silent. I have chosen to sit in my anger, frustration, pain, confusion and unbelief for more than week. Not because I didn’t have any words to say, because I have plenty, but because I want my words to reflect the truth. My truth and place in this, but…

Emerge Hair Care Review

In our house, 5 of us have curly hair (and lots of it). I feel like we are always trying to buy different curly hair products to keep our curls hydrated and not just have one product line that works. With all of our different curly hair patterns and textures, it’s sometimes hard to find…
