This morning I woke up and as it is my day off, decided to not get out of bed for a while. So I watched Dylan Marron's YouTube channel for a while, scrolled through Facebook, etc. I also got up 4 times to answer the phone for work related calls and got increasingly grumpy every … Continue reading The hard work of starting over
Happy Easter! Happy Resurrection Day! He did it! It is finished! Hallelujah. Did anyone else cry through the Easter program this morning at church? Geeze, what a story. During the program at IBEM (Iglesia Bautista Evangelica de Macoris) one church member performed a monologue as the woman caught in adultery (John 8:2-11). She talked about … Continue reading Easter: The good stuff
Almost a week ago I turned 26. I had plans to write a nice blog post about how far I've come in the past year, all the things I've learned, all the things I've done, all the books I've read and TV shows I've watched, and all I hope to do in the year to … Continue reading 26
Here's the thing about my first year teaching first grade... it's over! I did it! We did it! Yesterday Glennon (I feel like we're on a first name basis now for how often I reference her posts) told us to love ourselves and be proud of ourselves for something we've done lately. Yesterday I sat with my … Continue reading Here’s the thing about my first year teaching first grade

And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on … Continue reading Here’s the thing about having gone
I was doing the blogging rounds (Brittany, Herself, Momastery, Elora Nicole, Five Kids Is A Lot Of Kids - the usual) and found myself over at Donald Miller's blog, Storyline, reading something life-giving that Glennon of Momastery wrote. She was answering an e-mail, writing to someone who believed that they didn't have the time or talent to … Continue reading Here’s the thing about being gold
I've been peeking in at Momastery for a year or so now, which might sound weird because I'm not a mom, but I think that it's more than just moms who are being challenged and encouraged by what Glennon Doyle Melton is saying and doing over there. And the cool thing is that all that she is … Continue reading Carry On, Warrior
We started this week off with a Missions Conference led by an amazing speaker/missionary from Spain/Mexico. (He's a Mexican missionary to Spain.) This week my tutoring finally started back up and I've been loving the cooler weather. It's no eight below (I see you, Michigan) but I actually wore pants and long sleeves at the … Continue reading Check this out!
Happy New Year!! This post is a day late because yesterday I was busying sitting in airports for 100 hours. After a super chill day of traveling I made it back to the DR! To a laundry room that looked like an episode of animal hoarders. Such is life. Articles/blog posts: When Baby Jesus Gets … Continue reading Check this out!
