At the Lowest Point on Earth

At the Lowest Point on Earth

I’m so fat. I don’t want to be here. I’m so uncomfortable. I wish I looked liked those girls. It would be nice to be so pretty. I’d never be insecure if I looked like that. I can’t wait to leave and be alone and hidden. Those old familiar thoughts that once made their home … Continue reading

His Beauty for My Ashes

His Beauty for My Ashes

I arrived back home from Israel early Friday morning after 30 hours of traveling which consisted of two flights, 5 movies, half a novel, 3 naps, 2 terrible airplane meals, and a three and a half hour bus ride.  Upon arriving home, I laid in bed exhausted and nauseated from my travels.  My mind began … Continue reading

Finding Jesus in Jerusalem

Finding Jesus in Jerusalem

Oh Jerusalem. So much to take in. So many remnants of the ancient past to see. Endless views to find yourself lost in. Over the week, I’ve found myself looking out over all of Jerusalem, trying to soak up every moment. Every detail I want to remember. The beauty. The sounds. The people. The mysteries … Continue reading

Buzzfeed STRESSES ME OUT AND BROKE MY HEART

Ok, let’s just get right to the point. Buzzfeed is taking over the world. Or at least the internet, which these days is basically the same thing. Unless you’ve lived under a rock, Buzzfeed is the last and greatest blogging site that posts something like six hundred and twenty-four thousand times a day with captivating … Continue reading

This Little Light of Mine…

This Little Light of Mine…

I love how creative God is. He’s created this amazing and vast Eco-system that he uses to guide us back to him. A few years ago, I was living in Pennsylvania and I was taking a walk by myself, as I often found myself doing there. Fireflies were a new wonder for me. Growing up … Continue reading

Happy Birthday to Me

Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday and I am officially 28. I know that everyone says this, but it feels like the last ten years of my life just flew passed me.  I remember turning 18 like it was yesterday.  I had been begging my mom to let me pierce my belly button since I was 16.  … Continue reading
