Hi Friends! It's been a while since I've said a thing over here. Believe me I've been waiting for a star of inspiration, but the sky was pretty cloudy and life down here busy. Jen and I are in the middle of a tsunami of mid-terms and finals, but we're going to make it, I … Continue reading Feeling Fruitless
I think this is a topic that everyone may be thinking about in whatever stage of life they are in. We all have expectations and hopes. What is waiting anyhow? I love how the Webster's 1828 has two definitions for this: WAITING: participle present tense Staying in expectation. or WAITING ON: attending; accompanying; serving. Often … Continue reading Waiting on God
“So then, turn your eyes upon Him, look full into His face and you will find that the things of earth will acquire a strange new dimness.” These words sparked the famous hymn Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus by Helen Lemmel. However, despite the renown of the hymn, few are well acquainted with the woman who … Continue reading Lillian Trotter

Perhaps you did or didn't have a past that brought you to that point, but it was so … Continue reading Are you rejecting Hope?
Hey Girls!

College and I have had an interesting regard for each other throughout the … Continue reading When the Path was Unexpected
Hey Girls! I'm back! This is a sort of "Part Two" to the last post I did. So, snuggle into a comfy seat, wrap your hands around a mug of tea, and let's begin! I know things like this ask for dimmed lights, but that's not possible in this case...and you can't see my face … Continue reading My Testimony
Hey friends! I wanted to share a quote with you, this has challenged me and I hope it changes us both.
