a self-reflection.

*Before this post, I want to create some space to share some resources that I have been using to learn more about the current social and cultural conversation. And, I want to be mindful of continuing to create space for the voices that may need more space to be louder, and be heard. I found…Read more a self-reflection.

Faithfulness

Over the past few days, I have felt it placed on my heart to talk about faithfulness. I want to start by asking the question “What is faithfulness?”. I think a lot of us associate being faithful with not cheating on our romantic partners. But apart from this, is there a universal definition? Oxford Dictionary…Read more Faithfulness

Seasons // Seed to Sequoia.

This post has taken many forms over the past few weeks, both mentally and physically.  It has been written, deleted, restarted, renamed, deleted again.  This has been an emotionally draining and stressful time for my husband and I, and gave us a really interesting perspective for Christmas.  There are still a lot of emotions sitting…Read more Seasons // Seed to Sequoia.

Today was probably my first real opportunity to engage with Islam, apart from reading…Read more A Dialog with Islam

Vulnerability.

I've been struggling with whether or not I wanted to write this post. But I'm going to be vulnerable with you. I moved into my new college last Saturday.  I moved in early because band camp was slated for the few days before Freshman Orientation.  My brother, who is a freshman, moved into the same college…Read more Vulnerability.
