Ready to Let Go

Ready to Let Go

The topic of letting go could point to a number of things. For now, we'll talk about sorting again. I've mentioned it off and on this year because I have a strong desire to get rid of stuff. Not in a bad way, like I don't care about my belongings. No, this is just...

The Tension to Trust

The Tension to Trust

It was easy for me to trust God about the whole college thing. I never questioned the going or not going. In my mind, the answer had always been I was going. This might surprise you, given the fact that my parents and I had a lot to figure out. The transition from...

He Captured My Attention

He Captured My Attention

He captured my attention when we were much younger. Somehow my friends and I always used to convince him to play with us outside during recess. That was probably the only time we really interacted, besides passing each other in the hall. He was a fifth grader. I was...

A Part of Our Family

A Part of Our Family

There is a freedom that comes with growing up as the only girl in the house. I didn't have to share clothes, take turns with the girl toys, or wait for my sister to hang out with me when she moved up to high school. Having brothers is different, but we still did...
