Dear fellow readers, I have officially moved to California to pursue my M.A. in English from La Sierra University. It has been a blessing thus far; my professors are wonderful and have made me feel very welcomed. I’ve only had one week of class so far, but am thoroughly enjoying them. I am currently working […]

On top of Pikes Peak- haven’t climbed it yet but hoping to this year! I thought this picture was quite relevant to this particular post (heh). This is a raw, transparent piece that I am about to write. To write about my purity is something God has told…

A couple of days ago, I fell in grace. It wasn’t a gentle fall either–it was rough. I found myself alone, on the floor of my closet, weeping. It has nothing to do with the fact that I am an emotional woman, but everything to do with humbling myself to the point of falling. I […]

Who do you actually have in your life that you can tell all of your wildest dreams to? Someone who won’t judge you—or tell you you’re crazy and young. Someone who won’t chuckle and say it’s O.K. to dream, because in several years, we’ll realize it was all for nothing? Well, time will tell. But […]

Here is a little poem I wrote for 2014. Happy New Year fellow readers!   There is something defining about a new year; It’s not the numbers, or the days, or the dance and celebration— It’s where we stand today, and who we’re standing with.   So, I want to let my hands write—of light […]

Dear fellow readers, I think many could say that New Year’s resolutions come easy to say, but rather more difficult to do. Which is why, this time around, rather than listing a bundle of things to do for 2014, I will simply trust what God is doing in my life and list the things I […]

A poem by The Lady Journal, written to Max Richter’s music. | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJJia598Aig ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’  | 2 Corinthians 12:9 Grace, Let Me Quiet Your Soul  She stood still, looking out the cracked window; She arched her head forward–back–to the side, Her cheek then […]

Dear Post-Graduates, I understand very well that it takes time to find yourself steady after graduation; meaning, you have a job (with benefits), you have a steady income and you know pretty much where you’re headed. For many graduates, they already have this–maybe even a happy marriage with little ones. For me, it’s a lot […]

“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.” Philippians 2:3 I put this verse on  Instagram the other night, I captioned it, “People don’t do this anymore. It’s more about pointing out another’s flaws to stew guilt in others and to make themselves “look and feel […]

There is a chosen course, typically followed. It involves a race, many have won.   But I don’t want to run a race that has already been– I want to run–freely–into grace.   Where decisions involve me blindfolded, with the God of my whole heart– Tying the knot behind my hair, Whispering…Trust Me, beloved.   […]

I typically don’t do the “lists”, but I figured I let loose and share a comedic yet truthful list of some things I’ve discovered and encountered with women. Majority of the time, women who do these things want you to feel inferior, and most of the time, they’re actually serious. 1. Women can’t stand to be called “sweetie” […]

“Do not be over righteous, neither be over wise– why destroy yourself? Do not be over wicked, and do not be a fool– why die before your time? It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other. The man who fears God will avoid all [extremes].” Ecclesiastes 7:16-18 So, what is this extreme […]

Last night, I had a dream that my twin sister, my mother and I were lodged in this little cabin in the woods. The skies were cloudy and the weather was damp all around. We knew a storm was on its way, but we just didn’t know when it was going to come. I remember […]

I trust the trickle of water down her skin, The abstinence within her growing bones– While she lay on the edge, her hair billowing in silence. I look at her–as I look at nature; Seasons will come. They will come swiftly. I whisper, Be quiet, to the taunters abusing the air around her– That shout […]

There is none– As You. Nor anything as this grace you have given.   I sin to my core, and my hands tremble in angst– And You, Take my fingers and envelope my hands– to make me whole.   I don’t understand, in many ways never will– This love, this love, this love–You give me. […]
