Akayla Lewis  We're all masters now.

I suppose I should mention that I'm transferring schools. I'm transferring to Missouri State, and for my friends who don't know, that's the state school here in Springfield. I heavily considered going to some other college in a different state, but this is a smarter, pragmatic lateral academic and financial move as far as getting my undergraduate degree goes. Basically, I'm looking for a change of environment and new direction in life, so I'm stoked on that 🤘🏾#LifeUpdate

I brought in 2016 in Seattle, and I remember feeling so content and small. It's a good feeling.

2016 felt like a painful growth spurt. An intellectual civil unrest within me came to a head at the beginning of the year, and what ensued was a civil war with my head and heart. The huge castle of my worldview begin to break apart brick by brick in a frantic search for what is true. Through it all, I've found comfort in the most faithful friends. People that have been the most gracious to me in this process of figuring what in the hell is reality anyway.

Through the laughs, restless nights, confusion, and tears, I've found that no matter what be ready to honest with yourself and others. Life is so beautiful, and I'm so lucky. Every time I think of what I've gotten to see and do, I'm overwhelmed. The civil war has settled, and there's been casualties, but I've found peace in gaining a better understanding of the world and everything I thought I knew. This past month has been the most wonderful and is making rolling over into 2017 quite exciting. None of us know what is going on, but some of us try to. I'm done trying.

New year, ever-evolving me. #2017

In a few days I'll have to transition from this to Louisiana weather. #15degrees #Snow

I am hoping that studying and coffee with @gracerhoy42 will prepare me for this turbulent week of Hebrew exams. #Mondays

Thank you @localnatives for one of the best nights ever. I'm still not over it. #SunLitYouthTour

Right after this she threw water on me. I think it's ok to be a 5 year old on Saturdays. #LiveLife

Just got this in the mail. I played a few tracks for my roommates, but they don't understand beautiful music 🙃 #TheChariot #LongLive #Vinyl

Saturdays.

Life update: I've spent a little over the past week of my life surrounded by these Jesus loving, kind, funny, and welcoming people. This is the Evangel University Crosswalk executive board. I'm excited that I've been given the opportunity to serve my campus and community through the work of the ministry this year, and that I get to do it along side of these amazing servant leaders. I'm so stoked for what God has in store for our campus and our community! #EUCrosswalk #Family #SexyAndSpiritual
