    Finding Balance In Your Life

    If your anything like most people you may be feeling like your living in chaos due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are all told to stay home, & stay safe. But we’re not told how to work 40 hours at home, while also trying to home school our kids. We haven’t been told how to get the gratification of a hug without being able to touch other humans. We don’t know the excitement that comes along gathering with friends and family until its no longer an option. We are left feeling stressed out and completely burned out with no outlet.    Finding balance looks different for everyone, especially in times like…

    Imprisonment Due To Hurt

    I attended Church this past Sunday. The lead Pastor Chris Lockemy, is giving a 4 week series on unforgiveness. I cannot stop thinking about this message. I encourage you to check it out on their YouTube channel. But I feel the need to share this because it shook me deep inside my core. Pastor Chris explains that unforgiveness is like a prison cell.

When we choose to not forgive someone, we are locking ourselves in a prison. There are 4 doors that contribute to our imprisonment in unforgiveness. These doors…

I recently got the She Reads Truth Bible and it was a game-changer for me. It is very easy for me…

    Being a Christian Woman

    Let me be honest, I feel like being a Christian Woman is super intimidating. I feel like I have to be someone who NEVER messes up, never curses, never lies, never disappoints, never fails, the perfect mom, the perfect wife, etc. Then, I also feel like it titles me with being a “weirdo” whos not fun to be around… I am just being honest here. It has felt like a real juggling act. I am new on this walk with Jesus. Out of curiosity, I decided to Google “what does a Christian Woman look like” and the results were overwhelming. So, I wanted to share simple but biblical ways I strive to be a better Christian…
