It’s a hard subject. It’s something that most people don’t want to think about. We shouldn’t have to think about it. But the truth is, we need to. The first step to staying safe in this broken world is to be aware. We need to keep our eyes open, and as much as I would like to bury my head in the sand and not have to worry about such things, that really isn’t the wisest option.
This issue has been coming to my attention a lot lately, and I don’t know what God’s purpose for that is. But I have been seeing things to do with it everywhere. Facebook, other social medias, and even friends posting in support of the cause against it. This past year, this cause has become something that is very near and dear to my heart, and I wanted to share it with you.Read More »
Beachside Resorts are boring. Or so Danni thought. She had escaped to get away from it all. The noise, the bustle, the people. It had all been too much. It all weighed on her like a heavy sack that was draped from her shoulders. The oppressiveness closing her throat off from the fresh air that she needed.
Climbing up from the hill behind the resort had been her only way of escape. She bit hard on her lip till she drew blood. The conversation that she had heard made her blood turn hot, but cold all at the same time. She had heard her parents arguing. Well, parent. Her stepmother was the farthest thing from a true parent. She had heard them with her door closed and with headphones in her ear, which attested to the loudness of the discussion. Read More »

Saying no has become a necessity for me, and one that I find I am failing at on a regular basis.Read More »

This blog has been a source of encouragement. I hope it always will be. I want my readers to leave feeling brighter, stronger, and strengthened than when they arrived. I pray that what I write is an inspiration to others. But sometimes, being raw and real can be just as encouraging. I don’t have it all together. Not that I ever claimed I did, but blogging only shares a tiny bit of my life. I struggle, the reality is, that while a lot of my life is amazing, there are still things that hurt, are painful, draining and just downright depressing at times. So this post is to share some of the reality with you. Sometimes it is encouraging to know that other people go through the same things we do.Read More »

I have many passions in my life. A lot of them are displayed in my blog and you get to see the things that God has given me and how I cultivate them, but I know there was a time when I wondered what my passion was. (and before we go any farther, let me just tell you now, that there is nothing wrong with having more than one) *hides* What? I’m not talking about myself at all. *tries to hide the categorized 15 totes with different crafting projects in the garage*
What is passion? Passion is something that you have a strong attachment or emotion over. Another word for what I am trying to get at is your gift. The gift/s that God has given you. How do we know that those are? Here are some tips to find yours. Read More »
