sinking deep

This morning I woke up with the song “sinking deep” by Hillsong playing in my head. Well, it didn’t start out that way. The workers started hammering at the floor at 7 AM, so I was a little grumpy as I got out of bed, but after a few minutes of prayer and grouching at…

tofu tacos

Today I made something yum!! I made tofu tacos. There’s more information on my Instagram, but here’s the recipe.

fundraiser

If you’re from Texas (or anywhere that I can get a t-shirt to you), I’m selling super cute comfort colors t-shirts! They’re only $25, and I’m aiming to sell 100 of them. If you can’t buy one, share with a friend who can!

these are my reflections

I think no matter what season I’m in, reflecting on what God has done for me is always healthy. It helps me when I’m feeling down to be hopeful for what he is doing and what he will continue to do. So today, I’m going to write a list of the things that God has…

saw this one coming

If you’ve seen anything on facebook or Instagram, you’ll know I’ve decided to head back to Australia to join staff at YWAM Newcastle. I’m going to share a little bit about what’s on my heart concerning that, so be prepared for real, raw honesty. I knew that YWAM staff was where God was leading me,…

dads

Yesterday I was in Houston, and today I’m in Austin. I’ve gotten to spend a lot of quality time with my dad. He’s a great guy, he’s always goofing off but when it comes down to it, he’s very humble and always wants the best for and expects the best out of everyone. Sometimes people…

you give me purpose

Have you ever wondered what your purpose is? Don’t roll your eyes at me, just hear me out. I’m asking about YOUR purpose. Every good Jesus kid will say “my purpose is to glorify God”. You’re not wring, but how are you going to do that? What is YOUR specific purpose? What is your special…

stress

Here I am, Monday morning. Hit me with your best shot. Okay, actually don’t. Today I’m headed to Houston to drive my dad to meet with some people and hopefully I’ll get to see one of my friends from high school. While I like to be at home, my travel is one of my passions…

canada baby

Less than a week ago, I booked my flights to Canada for my friend Steph’s wedding. Her fiance Jeff is also my friend, but I love Steph more. (Sorry if you’re reading this Jeff!!) I’m so so excited to see my friend marry the love of her life, but I’m also excited to see all…

de-clutter

I’m taking online classes with Hardin-Simmons, and yesterday, we had an art project due. The project was to “create your own art”. The instructions were few, and not being the most artistic person I know, I was stressed about what to make. I thought about just drawing something with markers on a piece of construction…

kom my bucha

Something I picked up in Newcastle AUS was the art of making kombucha. I used to watch the girls on staff make it once a week and wait close by to hope to get a cup full of the fizzy liquid. After watching for a few weeks, the sweet Guatemalan Leslie asked if I wanted…

summer lovin’

I’m sitting in my room in my reclining chair, with my bed to the right and my cork board in front of me with all the reminders of things I need to do. Amidst the checklists and sticky notes, one piece of paper stands out from the black and white. It’s water colored, and it…
