Spring of 2017 I was finishing up my last term of undergrad. I was taking a practicum under a few history teachers in the La Grande High School where I typically observed teaching methods and classroom management. My notes on these observations were proof of my involvement and how I was receiving credit for my…

1) Godly Sex Vs. Worldly Sex

This is a topic I’ve been discussing with God a lot the past couple months. My hope is that as you read through this, you will feel this to be true as well.  I am not sending this out in any form of judgement, for both me and my husband have been this person at…

The Shop

Flowy chiffon, sleek silks, glittery stilletos, “look at me” sparkly earings, the big white wedding gowns, and mermaid style prom dresses. Beautiful gowns in every corner, in every window, and filling every rack. Working at Merri Lee’s is every girl’s dream, but it wasn’t my own doing that landed me the job there…. Back in…

Jumping In The Water

Piercing. Bold and comforting, curious and innocent. The windows to the soul… I saw my husband’s eyes years before I ever met him. God gave me a dream about my husband when I was just a sophomore in high school. It was like a little hint of what was to come if I followed His…

Beautifully Simple

God gave me the idea of writing this blog back in December of 2017. I wrestled with the idea for weeks. I didn’t know if I was truly hearing His voice about it, or if I was pushing my own desire to write for selfish reasons. But I felt He kept highlighting to me which…

2) Meeting Jesus Over Tacos

    *This is the second post of my testimony series, so don’t miss out on reading “1) Jesus in Bud Jackson’s” before continuing.   To pick up where we left off, here is a mini recap- I had placed my identity in being “The good girl,” and that didn’t last. I tried identifying myself as…

God’s Soldier

  One of the biggest changes I experienced after getting married was the loss of privacy. I’m not talking about privacy in terms of personal boundaries like putting my deodorant on. No. I’m talking about the loss of privacy needed for me to sing at the top of my lungs, not worrying about hitting every…

1) Jesus in Bud Jackson’s

I met Jesus at the bar. He meets you where your at– plain and simple. After a lifetime of not knowing my true identity, but still trying to find myself in the world, there I was at Bud Jackson’s, without a clue as to who I was. But I knew that Jesus knew. And I…
