Grief is weird. Can we all agree? Just when I think I’ve unpacked and healed from trauma long ago, something small triggers it and I find myself spending hours grieving, unpacking, and laying it all down at the feet of Jesus all over again. I don’t know what grief you carry. But just know, if… Continue reading Grief

I love people. I believe there is still good in this world. I am crazy in-love with Jesus.

It had been five years… Continue reading “You’re special.” *My Salmonella Story.
I refuse to become a pessimist. Even though I have been shocked and disappointed by people I loved and respected over the last couple of years...
