Things That Matter

Do you ever feel like you can't hear God? Or that you aren't living the life you're suppose to live?

Things That Matter

Every morning when I wake up I think to myself, "What am I going to do today that matters?"

I recently did a Bible Study with my friend Caitlyn called, "Things that matter." In the devotional it asked if I was choosing the path to live my life to God, or if life was simply choosing me? I often feel like I'm just going through the motions of my life that was handed to me, not the life I was created to live.

I feel stuck sometimes, what am I doing? I think this on a daily! Anyone else? I get frustrated very easily because I don't know what God's will for my life is, and I'll be honest, it stresses me out. Why can't he just call me on my phone and tell me what to do?!

"What is a dream you have that only God can do?" "What if you dreamed for your community? "For the people you work with?"

I try not to think to hard into my dreams because then I get upset and tell myself they won't happen. Is this my own fault? Am I not living my life the way I am suppose to live?

Mark 10: 27

I play it safe because I don't want to fail. But isn't that apart of life? Is it because I must uphold a certain reputation for my family name or the name I'm creating for myself? But I want to be a women who wakes up with purpose and intent and who never gives up.

Most things that really matter require Faith and I am lacking. God please fill me with your peace for I worry so much. The world and school around me is nerve wracking. Calm my heart.

Last week of the semester! Woo Hoo!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
