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.

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…

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately.   As the school year draws to a close, and my final year of high school at that, there have been a lot of frantic nights, staying up late to get all the preparations in order, waking up early to the thoughts of,…

This is a story of who I am, how I've lived -- and how desperately I need rest and grace.

It’s Saturday morning.   Rainy and chilly, I tiptoe across the living room carpet, coffee in hand, hair thrown haphazardly into a messy bun. I breathe.   After a week of running fast and hard, it’s finally quiet. No more hustle. Just me. It’s a refreshing…

Do you ever feel stuck, dry of joy, just going through the motions of mundane life, day after day, wondering when the cycle will ever end?   Sometimes I do too.   Last week, I got the chance to write for my college’s student life blog. As much as the post…
