WORSHIP AS A LIFESTYLE

A DIFFERENT FORM OF PRAYER Everyone is on their knees, hands raised, praising God in complete surrender. And here I am, stressing about my Shakespeare exam with my notecards surreptitiously hidden in my hands between the folds of my dress. This has been my worship life for the past month. I...

POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS

5 QUICK THINGS TO DO EVERYDAY  I love me.  Few of us are comfortable with uttering this or any affirmation like it to ourselves. We barely ever affirm ourselves for the simple act of affirmation and expressing our love to our bodies, minds, and souls. In fact, even writing that first...

THE ME TOO MOVEMENT

WEINSTEIN, EPSTEIN AND AILES Weinstein. Epstein. Ailes. These names, along with many other once powerful and revered names, have gained a new reputation in the past year. Women have begun fighting for their voice to be heard, even above the fame and power the most influential men might hold in...

BEACH READS 2020

SUMMER READS FOR YOU This probably isn’t the first book post you’ve read. In fact, if you’re like me, you have a Pinterest board, a list on your Notes app, and an album on your photo app about books. And why shouldn’t you? Books give life, escape, and entertainment without...

SPIRITUAL REEVALUATING

BELIEVING AND GROWING WITHIN YOUR FAITH “Go back to the hour you first believed” My campus pastor’s words fell heavily as we sat in silence, a room full of 4,000 people digging through old memories of singing “Jesus Loves Me” in vacation Bible school and being told that God was “knocking...

WHY THE MAGIC OF SUMMER IS GONE?

WHY THE HECK DID I BUY A PLANNER FOR 2020? Only in summer does Monday feel like Friday and Friday feels like Wednesday and Wednesday seems to last for the entire month of May. This year, the summer haze seems to be even more jumbled thanks to quarantine and the...

PRODUCTIVITY AND BEAUTY

PRODUCTIVE BEAUTY Has anyone actually gotten dressed for these past few weeks? I mean really dressed, like act as though they went to work and did their hair, put on their makeup, and threw on a dress and some heels? Personally, my pajamas are now safe for work, school, and...
