Working for the Lord

When people ask what I do, I always get kinda stuck. “Property Management” is easy to explain on paper but the day to day craziness is impossible for many to comprehend unless you’ve been there.  I have come to the point where I just tell people I’m an ‘RA for adults’. That usually gets the…

Human Dignity Begins in the Womb

Recently, human dignity was cited as the reason to grant same-sex couples the legal right to marry. That’s a lot of weight to put on the phrase. So what I want to talk about today is this: When does a human being gain human dignity? Is it granted to us at a certain age? At a…

The List

Fun fact about me: I lead a bible study/small group of soon to be 9th grade girls. In 6th grade, after going through a biblical dating series, I had them write down their ideal husband so as to show them years later how ridiculous their versions of the perfect man were. I was going through them a…

The First 50 Days

As of today, Joe and I have been married 50 days…. woohoo! Though 50 days is a really short amount of time, we’ve learned a ton. And since everyone keeps asking me “How’s married life?”, I figured I’d tell you how it’s going and what we’ve learned thus far: 1. Marriage is Awesome.  I get to start…

A Day in Hosea: Chapter 1

Hosea Chapter 1 Key Verse:  10 “Yet the Israelites will be like the sand on the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. In the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called ‘children of the living God.’ Central Truth: God loves us and never stops pursuing us….

I Finally Kissed My Husband

As many of y’all know, Joe and I had chosen to save our first kiss until our wedding day. And I’m sure y’all are wondering: now that we’re married, do I think it was worth it? Do I regret saving our first kiss until we were in front of 200 people? Not at all. I wouldn’t change a thing about the…

Engaged & Unemployed

Yesterday, I was informed that my job position was no longer needed. So next Friday, I will officially be unemployed with one month until my wedding day. Though not my ideal situation (“Oh my gosh! I would LOVE to be jobless as I start my new life with my husband!” – Said no one ever),…

I’m More Excited For My Marriage Than My Wedding

I have been engaged for a little over two months now and wedding planning has been in full swing. With less than 4 months to go before the ‘big day’, there are still quite a few details to hash-out. Now that I’m on the planning side of things, I’ve noticed something: The modern wedding has taken the…

My Last Pill

Today may just seem like an ordinary Monday. But not to me. Today is the day I take my last anti-anxiety pill. MY LAST PILL.  Last July, I sat in the doctor’s office as she explained the side effects of escitalopram.  I remember sitting there desperate. My panic attacks had become more frequent and I would wake…

Letting Things Go

No, I’m not writing about Frozen. In fact, when I first decided to write a post, I went on a tangent about politics. It’s sitting in my draft file. But after thinking about it, I realized that I am becoming quite the cynic. I am a very passionate person and get very heated when talking about…
