I love Jesus. I drink too much coffee, write too many words, read too many books, and listen to excessive amounts of twenty øne piløts.

Probably the most painfully honest thing I've ever written. It's Unfiltered: because the world needs more vulnerability. And you're not alone.

i.   It has been much too long since I have sat myself down to write. In the past months, exhausting and chaotic as they have been, I have lived.   I have mourned things that would never come to be. I have both sat on the floor of my room sobbing for…

I've been writing this essay in my head and heart for months, and it's finally time I released it. If you're struggling with pain and disappointment these days, wrestling with how God fits into the mess, this is for you. 💙

Sometimes life just doesn’t turn out the way we always thought it would.   Sometimes we feel like we’re left with more questions than answers – more waiting than action – more hours of crying than smiling. Sometimes, something that seemed like it would be…

First blog post in much too long. Here's my heart on pain, trusting God, & His faithfulness.

Sometimes all you can do is cry, and pray, and wait. And trust that God is in control, even when it takes every ounce of faith inside you to catch even a glimpse of that.   *   I wish I could say I spend my New Year’s Eve in a glamorous way. I didn’t. ……

“Marriage was never meant to be about me. It’s always been a great allegory of the love between Christ and the Church – of which I am a part, and am invited to partake in the fullness of. Of which all of us are invited to partake in. See, it’s this cosmic…

{NEW POST} on being real, embracing grace, knowing Jesus, & sharing our stories.

  If you met me today, you’d be meeting a pretty normal girl. I like coffee, and cozy sweaters, and reading, and smiling, and driving, and Chick-fil-A.   And I really, really love Jesus.   If we had a conversation, we might talk about how I like your…

New blog post up, finally! On where I've been, what I learned, & deep faith. + photography!

It’s been too long.   Each time I’ve tried to sit down and write, I’ve either gotten distracted, become unmotivated, or overwhelmed, hence the silence on my part. And so instead, I’ve been gone, treating my blog as an intimidating monster to be slayed,…

Sometimes God calls us to right where we are - the beautiful mess of ordinary here & now.

I’ve been writing this post in my head and heart for too long.   It’s the byproduct of so many late night wrestlings, so many journal entries and tweets and long-winded conversations with the people closest to me.   It’s those texts we send our friends…

i.   Oh wow He’s faithful.   There’s something so ethereal about knowing when God is speaking.   Oftentimes, before I leave my house to go be with other Christians, I pray a few things. One, that I’d have some sort of meaningful conversation, two, that…

Only Jesus can satisfy the longing for purpose & joy that our souls crave. We can't forget it.

Pursue Jesus and love Him first. That’s been on my mind the past few weeks, as the I run the concept over and over in my head, trying to more fully grasp what it means, what it looks like, why it’s important.   And finally, after struggling for so long to…

"We've made churches so trendy that we're losing sight of what church is all about: Jesus."

Before we start, I’m going to be straight with you — I’m a millennial.   Yes, I’m in college, and not a day goes by that I don’t drink at least two lattes, turn on Spotify, or check my iPhone a handful of times an hour.   Yes, I do spend most of my days ……
