"We will become fools for Christ, because we know not only the difficulty of this path but also the immense happiness of feeling God's hand upon what we do." -Saint Maria of Paris
Rainy morning words from a woman who truly lived boldly and boundlessly for the Lord's glory. Look her up—you won't be disappointed ☀️🌱📖

Had such a great weekend reliving old memories of Dairy Queen, AIM, and summer camp 👯 So thankful for lifelong friendships, walks with Jake, and good food 🐶☀️🍜

"To be moral beings we need to be free beings. And to be truly free in Christ we need a sense of abandonment (that of wanting to abandon our old sinful and fallen ways) and a sense of abiding (that of abiding in the power of the Holy Spirit). To be truly free, we must be truly surrendered to the control of the Holy Spirit." -SDA Sabbath School Lesson
Politics, sickness, strife, finances, relationships, and countless other personal and global issues can leave our minds spinning, searching for answers, and striving for peace. We are imperfect, fallible people living in a sin-ridden world. The chaos of it all can corrode hearts and corrupt good intentions. Yet, right there in the middle of it all, is the Lord beckoning us to abide in Him, offering us the freedom of salvation. It is more than simply a breath of fresh air; it is the beginning of eternal life 🙏🏻

Brightened up a rainy day with Moses and the Burning Bush, as well as a little reminder that the Spirit of the Lord can call to us in simple and unexpected ways 🔥

"Change comes not from striving in our own strength to be like Jesus, but by developing a habit of being and communing with him...The reason for rotten fruit in our lives, the reason why we stay stuck on certain sins for years, is that we spend too much effort trying to be like Jesus relative to the investment we make in simply being with him...'Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,' Jesus says, 'and I will give you rest.'& #34; -Scott Sauls
May this new year be a freeing one of deeper communion with Christ and all His children 🌅

As Mary once sang, "My soul magnifies the Lord. And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior...For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and Holy is His name." (Luke 1:46-49)
This Christmas has reminded me that each day is a glorious gift to be lovingly and intentionally shared. 🎄

A beautiful reminder this holiday season: "Why do we rush to defend God to a broken world, and not race to defend the image of God in the world's broken?...All there is to see is Jesus. All there is to see is the face of Jesus in others —and for them to see the face of Jesus in you...Maybe you can only be Christ in the world to the extent that you see Christ's presence in the world."

Covered in snow, my heart's aglow — it's truly the most wonderful time of the year and my current heart song is "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...in Arkansas!" ☃️❄️🌲

Had such a terrific time exploring Portland and traversing through this winter wonderland with the sweetest tour guides and snow dog around ❄️🗻💙

They try my new curry recipes (even if they don't like them), spontaneously break into dance, bust out in Hamilton sing-a-longs, cry at Lifetime movies, and love unconditionally. They are my people, my beautiful, gracious, compassionate people. And I am so blessed to call them my sisters 🍂💛🔑#whattheheckigottado #lookaround #blessup

This morning, I am especially thankful for trees, trails, and a dad who is willing to get up and get out with me before the festivities begin 🍂 How important it is to give thanks for all Christ has given and how precious it is to live given in the Lord who is so very good! Happy Thanksgiving, friends 🙏🏻❣️

There is something simply humbling about sunrise hikes in autumn 🍂 The words of one of my favorite songs ring true as "sometimes I think I glimpse eternity." I am thankful for seasons in nature and seasons in life that open my eyes and heart in unexpected ways 🌄
