Break through what is not You

A few days ago a friend of mine was really on my heart, so I text her to hang out. Last night we got dinner and before we parted, joked, "Maybe this was why God wanted us to meet up!" We had just spent a good amount of time sharing similar struggles and experiences, ones [...]

Solomon’s Prayer for Wisdom

Back in March I heard a sermon about 1 Kings 3:1-15, and it's been sticking with me, guiding me, and coming up so much recently. Today my sweet friend Molly asked me how I'm able to focus on the Lord when I start to see Him working and doing things in exciting ways, and not [...]

So I figured I'd explain what Jericho Prayers really are, and why I think they're so powerful [and why I think you should write your own Jericho Prayers too]. Jericho Prayers came from Mark Batterson's book "The [...]

For I am about to do something new

I spent January 1, 2018 cleaning and organizing my room in the apartment. If you saw the piles you would’ve thought I was moving. But I needed to purge. Purge on all the crap I have but don’t need. Organize the messiness so it’s bearable to look at. To rearrange so I can take a [...]
