Worship

Your relationship with God is just that, YOUR relationship. Specific to you. Something unique. How do you connect with God? Through music or reading  Scripture? Through sitting in the silence or in the nature? Maybe your worship is active, maybe it is more still. Perhaps it manifests meditation or productivity. “Surely, no matter what you are … More Worship

Time Out

Do you need a break? Some time to get away from life and recharge? I don’t know about you, but my week has been a packed one. Busy with school, work, extra projects, and various meetings. I’ve been feeling exhausted and burnt out, like I just want to crawl into a hole and not come out … More Time Out

Practical Faith

So many times I find myself questioning things. Holding back from my full potential. Trusting in myself. So many times I fall and cry out, thinking no one is there to help me up, wondering how long Ill be stuck on the ground. Faith.

Stand Up

Heart pounding, quickened breath, shaking hands, thoughts stirred. A call to prayer. I am currently in the process of becoming certified to instruct yoga. Holy yoga to be exact. Its a wonderful way to connect with and worship God through movement, breath work, meditation and prayer. I am enrolled in a nine week distance learning … More Stand Up

Only Grow

There are certain things one must realize about life in order to grow. Because growth only takes place in soft soil. Wet soil. A place where the dirt has been torn up, thrown around and smashed down.  Growth is not a result of perfection. Finding yourself in a place of contentment, and therefore believing that … More Only Grow

One Four

Two Thousand and Thirteen. The best and worst year of my life. I could say its all been bad, but I would be lying. Because through the darkest days there have been glimpses of hope, prospects of a brighter tomorrow. I dont know how I survived, how I made it to twenty three. With the … More One Four
