Trigger Warning - I mention rape in this post. This is something that I haven't wanted to talk about. I've actually never wanted to discuss this publicly but I feel like I need to finally fully address this. I talked about this a little bit in the post 'no bondage' but I didn't go into… Continue reading accountability is hard but necessary
why I have stopped supporting Beyoncé
When Beyonce dropped her latest album, I listened to it on my way to work. I wasn't 100% comfortable but I ignored the feeling. I was just being dramatic and "too Christian". I saw the think pieces about the song 'Church Girl' and rolled my eyes. I thought people were just being dramatic because it… Continue reading why I have stopped supporting Beyoncé
On Saturday March 4th I met up with a friend at a coffee shop. We talked for a few hours, bonding over God's goodness in our lives. We then went to the mall so she could find shoes for her birthday dress. I mentioned that my small group leader was having a worship night and… Continue reading faithfully obedient
Happy March! I am currently in the middle of God fulfilling mad promises in my life and I cannot wait to share the full testimony with y'all! On the last Monday of each month, the women at my church get together for a potluck, worship, ministry, and prayer. The topic this past month was 'What… Continue reading no bondage

Curious about what my parents would find in the morning. Curious about the conversation they’d have with my sisters and brother. Curious about how… Continue reading I saw a victory
is Egypt still in you?
So I have this thing that I do and before I share it, yes I know it’s not a good thing at all. So if a situation comes up where I have an opportunity to sin, I’ll tell God “oh this is the last time” and just … sin. And frankly it’s a double whammy… Continue reading is Egypt still in you?
See, the devil, he learns from your mistakes ... even if you dont.Cycles - Jonathan McReynolds The first time I heard this song, my mind was blown. Not just by the artistry of the lyrics but by the way it grabbed my bleeding heart and tightened its grip until I couldn't take it. Apparently, the… Continue reading Cycles
you must enter a relationship with yourself before anyone else
I wrote this piece in the winter of 2017. This piece has always meant so much to me because it was the first time I started to associate sex with how harmful it truly is when it is had outside of marriage. It took a few years for me to really get it though. I've… Continue reading you must enter a relationship with yourself before anyone else
clearing out the house
Like most of my posts, I’m admitting a lot of things. This is actually one of the hardest posts I've written in a while because I'm purging some deeply internalized things. I recently found out that another friend is moving into a stage of life that I so desperately desire. I'm actually so happy for… Continue reading clearing out the house
