Why Thursday Night is the Best Part of My Week

It's 3:30. I'm home from work and ready for 'lunch'. Dinner. Whatever you want to call it. But more than looking forward to food, I counting down the hours (three and a half) until I head to downtown Conway, fail once again at parallel parking, and walk into Blue Sail Coffee with my (cheaper) Starbucks … Continue reading Why Thursday Night is the Best Part of My Week


A Post about a Post

Your Mom Has a Blog: https://yourmomhasablog.com/2015/03/16/jesus-cares-about-your-haircut/ Y’all? This is article is important. It isn’t about modesty. These aren’t sugary-sweet, watered-down words. It is simple. It is true. I think when parents, and we older Christian girls and women, teach and remind our daughters and sisters and friends about modesty, we give the impression God doesn’t … Continue reading A Post about a Post

And Now I Know Why I’m Scared

In my post "It's 2018" I mentioned wondering when I became afraid. After meeting with the woman from my church who is disciplining me and spending some time in prayer and just thinking, I'm pretty sure I figured out the answer to my question. I am afraid because my god is one that can never … Continue reading And Now I Know Why I’m Scared

Why I Write and My Thoughts on the First Two-and-a-Half Harry Potter Books

I mentioned on Facebook a few weeks ago that I was going to start reading the Harry Potter books. I had never read them before (because of our family rule and, later, a lack of interest) and was excited to finally get in on a fandom that so many of my friends have loved. My … Continue reading Why I Write and My Thoughts on the First Two-and-a-Half Harry Potter Books

It’s 2018!

Well. It appears that I haven't posted since Thanksgiving. That fact has been hanging over my head since a week after the aforementioned holiday and the guilt has eaten me alive. Guilt tends to be like that in my life. A massive, starving monster that is never satisfied until I feel like I have lost … Continue reading It’s 2018!

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
