I was looking in my email for something the other day, and I came across an essay I had sent to my mom back in high school to print (keywords, amirite?) I obviously had to look at it, but what I saw surprised the poop out of me. It was an essay I had written about leadership because I had become co-captain of my … Read More How Far Have You Grown?

Okay, was that a little strong? I’m sorry, but I am really excited about this post! I have been wanting to reinstate a morning routine in my life, and I’ve been wanting to get up early every day for probably the last year. There was only one problem: no matter how many days I told myself I’d get up earlier, and I set my … Read More The ONLY Tip You Need to Get Your Butt Outta Bed
I have been listening to a podcast by Brendon Burchard lately, and one of his recurring themes is “4 Breakthroughs”. In it, he talks about things he has learned in each season of his life, and what he is learning right now. I thought I would attempt that here, as I feel myself learning, growing and stretching every day. I hope you learn something … Read More 4 Breakthroughs: Me, You, Us.
One thing I have always been sure of is that our purpose on this planet is in part to make other people’s lives better. One of the best ways to do that is by donating your money. Now, there is a lot to be said for creating dependence on funds and so forth, but for an initial or emergency response, donations are necessary. Many … Read More Do Some Good – Money Makes a Difference
First of all, if you struggle with anxiety at all, you need to read the book of Philippians. Read it over and over and over again. Honestly, it’s all I’ve been reading for a while. In another post, I will talk about getting back into reading my Bible every day, but this was a huge part of it for me. Okay, but that isn’t … Read More Contentment
I logged on to begin writing my post this weekend, and WordPress notified me that it has been ONE YEAR since I registered my blog! Wow, can you believe that? It’s hard for me to believe it. One of the greatest things you can do in life is reflect. It’s important because it shows you how far you have come, but also, it makes … Read More One Year Later
So, I am currently reading this book by Brendon Burchard (one of the best books I’ve ever read, and exactly what I needed at this moment in my life!) and he asks the readers to do an exercise. I wanted to share it here in hopes you might get something out of it. He asks you to reflect on the last week of your … Read More Healthy. Present. Impactful.
We all have dreams…things we are passionate about, experiences we want to have, things to have accomplished. If I were to look at your schedule and live a week in your life, would I be able to know what those are? Could I tell what your goals are by what your actions show throughout the week? For most people, that’s a no. I’m not … Read More JUST DO IT
Life can be pretty mundane sometimes, right? We go through the motions. We get up, get ready, go to work, come home from work, maybe workout or read a book, eat dinner and then go to bed. I believe there is so much beauty in those little moments, but I also believe that there is so much more. When I think of my life, … Read More Spread the Light, Be the Lighthouse
I have always marveled at those people who choose a word for their year. They’ll end one year by picking a word they want the theme of the new year to be, or they’ll pick a word of significance, maybe something God is teaching them or leading them to. I can never do that. My year always ends up being vastly different at the … Read More Peace
I’ve been reading a lot of A.W. Tozer recently, and man I have learned so much! One thing that really hit me, though, was his definition of faith. He makes the point that there is no definition for faith in the Bible, that it rather is described as an act but the focus is on the result of the act of faith. From his … Read More Fix Your Gaze
It is said that people will only change when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of becoming new. I am facing lots of changes at the beginning of 2018. I feel like God is really challenging me to fine tune who I am and what I want. I know He already has plans for me, and I believe He’s calling … Read More The Necessity Change
