You Are Not the Only One in This

I was never vocal about waiting until marriage. No one knew, not even my closest friends. They knew I refrain, but they didn't know I was intentionally waiting until marriage. I don't remember how the conversations came up, but eventually they did. This is not a topic one wants to tell the world, and it… Continue reading You Are Not the Only One in This

Intimacy with Jesus

And the most important thing… Continue reading He Needs Jesus

I cannot summarize and talk about the entire psalm because I'd be here all night, so I encourage you to go read… Continue reading Create in Me a Clean Heart

No Jesus, No Worth • Know Jesus, Know Worth

Know your worth. It's a Christian cliche we all love to use, but sometimes use it without depth. As cliche as it may be, it's also one of those that if we actually accept it, it will change our lives. I was walking clothed in insecurity in high school and I looked for happiness in… Continue reading No Jesus, No Worth • Know Jesus, Know Worth
