Like every other post I’ve written for Songs of Waiting, I realized that there is so much information and I’ll have to write more posts on specific pieces of each topic. This will be a general post about prayer, but I pray it encourages you. Prayer is so important. We know that. We’re told over… Continue reading Pray About It
There came a point in my life when I needed Jesus so much more I'd intentionally seek Him anywhere I could. One of those areas was music, so I began to listen to only Christian music. I thought it would only be for a few weeks while I was walking through the valley, but I'm… Continue reading The Power of Worship
**Please remember that topics like the following post are expected due to the nature of the message coming from Songs of Waiting.** Song of Solomon is a beautiful book of the Bible. It is a raw expression of love between a bride and groom; sometimes graphic and awkward, but always real and telling. The book… Continue reading Until the Time is Right
I think purity can seem self-explanatory, but having a better understanding of what purity is and how to walk in the path of purity, we are better equipped to live the lifestyle.

I made a list of qualities I wanted in my future husband and decided I wouldn't settle until I had everything on that list checked off. Of course I didn't know… Continue reading So, You Want to Wait?
If you would have told me that this is where I'd be at 23 years old, I would have laughed. I wouldn't have believed you. I never imagined myself here, but I can't remember half of the plans I had for myself at this age. I know it didn't look like this though. Never did… Continue reading Plans of Hope and a Future
I've tried writing this post many times, but every time I try, I write too much and lose focus of what I am trying to say. There is just so much to learn from Jacob, but I'll try my best to stay focused on one point for this post. You guys, Jacob was a terrible… Continue reading God of Jacob
I’ve been holding in this cry and now I feel nauseous. It has to come out one way or another. I just don’t want to cry anymore. My tears at this point are redundant. They’re echos of the same pain, springing up from the same well. My heart is so heavy. All the time. Like… Continue reading Tears
