Hubris isn’t so Humorous

When I was between eleven and thirteen, I loved the Percy Jackson series. Loved. Them. So much so that eventually I had to quit reading them because I loved them a little too much. I reread them for the first time in six years this summer, and I remembered why I enjoyed them. The quick … Continue reading Hubris isn’t so Humorous

It’s Okay to Cry

I just finished watching a very short video by John Piper on sorrow. Hopefully I’ll be able to post it here at the end, but who knows. It was about letting yourself weep for things you have lost, or things you have not had. I seriously doubt he’s talking about an iPhone or a car. … Continue reading It’s Okay to Cry

Why I Can’t Stand “Strong Female Characters”

 My siblings and I were watching a bonus feature on a TV recently (Avatar: The Last Airbender, if you must know), and it was titled “The Women of Avatar: The Last Airbender”. One thing I’ll point out first is that none of these “women” were over the age of eighteen, so in my mind they … Continue reading Why I Can’t Stand “Strong Female Characters”

Saying Goodbye… Again

Over the last seven years, I have said goodbye many, many times. I've come to expect the word in relationships. For all the times I've been viscerally reminded that nothing lasts but Christ, each parting or separation is still as painful as the one before. Goodbyes are a part of life. There are the "until … Continue reading Saying Goodbye… Again

My Savior and My God

This week at my church’s Bible Study for women, I was asked to share what God has been doing in my life. As I wrote out what I planned to share, it struck me that I should share this on my blog as well! God has been teaching me the same things over and over because … Continue reading My Savior and My God

Speeding

I love driving. Seriously. I got a car roughly two months ago and I’ve already put over a thousand miles on it. I do every errand I can just so I can drive around town. I love going fast- love driving on the interstate. No, I don’t speed. I go the speed limit. That’s where … Continue reading Speeding

On the Eve of the Eve of My Graduation

When did you get excited about your high school graduation? Was it during your freshman year? During your senior prom? When you were accepted into a college? When you got a scholarship? When you finished your last paper? Or was it really, really late? Like, six days before graduation late. Because that’s when it was … Continue reading On the Eve of the Eve of My Graduation

Songs of My Summers

Hey guys! I've wanted to do this post for a long time and now I'm finally doing it! Music is a huge part of my life and I've realized that especially over the last four years, my high school years, my summers can be remembered by the song (or songs) I listened to the most. … Continue reading Songs of My Summers

Shock Waves

I couldn't believe it. I really couldn't. First, it was an email. Pray for this family. Confused, I shot a quick prayer to heaven asking for safety and comfort for the family, unsure as to what was going on. Then I shot a quick text to my friend. I'm praying, I said, is something wrong? Yes. Something was … Continue reading Shock Waves

My Dad in Six Quotes

At my church's annual Father-Daughter Banquet, the senior girls get the opportunity to give a tribute to their dad. I wanted to share mine with you. I’ve been looking forward to this moment for the last year, ever since I attended my first Father-Daughter Banquet in 2015. When I realized that all the senior girls … Continue reading My Dad in Six Quotes
