Personal Exploration (pt 1)

I recently found a book on my shelf titled "3000 Questions About Me".  I remember buying it, as I like books geared towards getting to know people.  But, then it just sat, unused on my shelf for a while. I thought this could be a fun time-capsule like journey.  There isn't much space in the…Read more Personal Exploration (pt 1)

In my whiteness.

I have struggled To piece my words together, To string the broken parts Of my conscious Into a coherent thought. I don't know what to say, and I don't have the words to say what I don't know how to say. But no matter The words I do try The ways I do phrase The…Read more In my whiteness.

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.

Letters to the Church (Chapter 3)

Chapter 3: The Order God gave us His "order" for the Church. He told us precisely what He wanted through His commandments in the Bible. In our arrogance, we created something we think works better.

And in these first few weeks…Read more Things I wish I knew before getting married.

I recently hopped on Facebook and saw a flurry of "How hard did aging it you?" posts.  Though I am not someone to post that kind of thing on my Facebook page, I like the space this now-popular prompt provides for self-reflection.  First Facebook profile picture, circa April 2010 I started my Facebook page in…Read more Age Up

No. I don’t stand with women.

This is something I have been trying to piece together for the past few weeks, since the Kavanaugh trial began. I know, that with this post, I should expect some criticism and perhaps hate, but I need to speak my truth. I am tired of feeling silenced and ignored, simply because I have a different…Read more No. I don’t stand with women.

Online Dating.

As I write this, my fiancée and I have a confirmed date and venue for our wedding, and I have appointments set up to go wedding dress shopping. (That still feels so weird to say out loud ....!)  But I thought this would be a good time explain our story a little bit, and give…Read more Online Dating.
