Love is about working together.

Today is my 6-month anniversary with my boyfriend, Justin Hargrave. I know in the grand scheme of things, 6 months is not a very long time… but a lot can happen in 6 months. I can honestly say that I have learned more about love in the pa...

I’m on the cusp of the time in my life where every week I’ve got friends on Facebook getting married. Let me tell you, there is nothing more sobering than seeing the people who used to make silly duck faces in high school in beautiful white dresses. Scrolling through t...

Yesterday, I went to confession for the first time in quite a while. You would think that the cookie cutter church girl leading worship and everything would be a bit better about stuff like that… but, when you do life right, you are tested in ways you never would expec...

We give up sweets.

We give up coffee.

We give up Facebook.

A couple of weeks ago I posted a bit about what truly makes us beautiful. I talked about how we are beautifully and wonderfully made in God's image and likeness; that if we want to be truly beautiful, we should look to improve our character. We radiate beauty only when...

We were beautifully and wonderfully made… so why are we caught up in worrying that we’re ugly? We are so naturally compelled to compare ourselves to others.

Throughout high school, I always compared myself to my favorite singers and guitar players. I would cut my hair l...

Lately, the Church has gotten a lot of grief from a lot of different places. I'm going to point out a couple major examples.

In my dorm at Michigan State, I can’t go a day without hearing about how because I’m a Christian, I “don’t care about gays”. Now, I am not numb t...

Looking through the 10 worst tornado outbreaks in the US, I see Joplin, Missouri’s EF 5 tornado in May 2011 at number 6.
Joplin, Mo. was the deadliest U.S. tornado since 1947 (161 deaths), and
the estimated damage was $2.8 billion (Costliest single tornado in U.S.)
