I have REALLY been struggling lately. I've just been struggling with not reading my Bible, not praying as much or spending as much time with God as I should be. I wake up, get dressed, I eat breakfast and leave for work... My life feels SO busy and I forget to make time for Jesus.… Continue reading Are We Horrible Friends?
A LOT of times, we forget what it is like to have a relationship with God. With our friends or significant other, we set time aside to hang out and talk. We text and call them frequently and we couldn't imagine putting someone or something else before them. Why don't we feel this way with… Continue reading Embrace Your Best Relationship
There's a verse from the Bible that I reslly love, and I think we can get a LOT out of: "Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity."- 1 Timothy 4:12 We teenagers are looked down on SO much,… Continue reading You Are Called Differently

Recently, I have felt convicted over the amount of time I spend on my friends and the amount of time I spend with God. Sure, I read my Bible and pray every day. But I should be wanting to do that and I should be CHOOSING to make time to spend with God, and in… Continue reading Prioritize Right.
This is a question which I was asked to answer, in the psychology class I am taking, for school (which, by the way, is absolutely amazing.

It's just… Continue reading Should Christians Have High Self-Esteem?
Hey all! I wanted to write a post about a mission which I have been on, recently. That mission has been seemingly impossible to accomplish.

When chaos strikes and you find your… Continue reading Mission (Seemingly) Impossible: Finding Joy

Hey all! The verse for this week is (again) from Acts. Acts 2:41 (ESV): "So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls." -Okay, so this verse isn't as deep or profound as it is absolutely amazing!
