Awake! Speak Life Devotional: Day 3 Update

Replacing words of hurt and harm with words of healing and encouragement.

Awake! Speak Life Devotional: Day 3 Update

On Monday, April 2, 2018, a small group and I began a journey to improve our happiness. To do this we are spending 15 minutes each day for a total of 21 days incorporating the tasks found in “Awake! Speak Life 21 Day Devotional.” This exercise requires the reader to not only learn and memorize scripture; but, it also encourages the participant to speak aloud affirmations of change.

Today was the third day of this process. The first day our focus was “God’s Love.” On day two, we were required to recite scripture that reinforces the previous fact. And, on the third day, we recited scripture, affirmations, and loving words while looking into a mirror. We are replacing words of hurt and harm with words of healing and encouragement.

After the first three days, I can honestly say that I feel a difference. I am more conscious of my thoughts. So, if I make a hateful comment to myself, I quickly dispute the harmful thought and declare a loving promise from God. Finally, I can recite the memory work. And, I know the location of where I can find the scriptures in the bible.

I am looking forward to next week so that I can share my results.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
