Moments that include Jesus, snuggling under a warm blanket, books, scented candles & coffee are a few of my favorite things.
Talking on the phone, not texting, gives me a lot of joy.
Handwritten letters are lovely.
Put on any music and I’ll dance.
Every day I notice how much I’m turning into my mother and I’m 100% ok with that.
I’ve started to find joy in budgeting money.
Starbucks, however, is my downfall.
Playing my cello was a great escape in college.
So was playing rugby.
I also had the amazing opportunity to coach the team for a little.
Graduated with a degree in history and don’t plan on doing anything with it.
After I graduated college I went abroad for a year doing the World Race, a missions trip that took me to 11 countries in 11 months. #XSquadXposed #11n11

Bulimia used to be a huge part of my life. But God freed me from that addiction while I was on the Race.
I was re-baptized in Malaysia in front of the Petronas Towers in a mini fountain of water. No tourists or police walked by until after it was over. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced.
I have an amazing job filled with amazing people, which is such an unexpected answer to prayer.
God put a desire on my heart to disciple high school girls at some point. I wanted to tell them how Jesus is the Knight in Shining Armor they’ve been looking for, and they that deserve someone who aims to be like Him.
Years later He provided those girls and we claim ourselves as Daughters of the King.
I also have a desire to travel and be a speaker of the gospel in front of thousands of people at big events. I don’t know what that will look like, but God does.
I accepted Jesus into my heart my freshman year of high school.
But I didn’t commit my life over to Him until junior year of college.
It will forever be the best decision I have ever made.
