#Selfie? Living in an ego-centered society.

Do you rely on someone “hearting/liking your picture” to tell you that you are good enough? Beautiful enough? Handsome enough? Strong enough? Loved enough? Are enough…?

It’s easy to pitfall into a state of reliance on the opinions of others, but we were never meant to live a life striving to please what man believes is good and right.

You can sin as a christian – you just can’t enjoy it.

Satan wants us to believe that we can WALK with Jesus and LIVE in sin. No, that is not how it works.

Cut out the relationships that influence you negatively.

There are many of us who think we are incredibly strong-willed in our relationship with God. That there is nothing that can separate us from the love we have for our Savior. Our promises are promises, and these promises are easy to make when we are at our highest spiritual peak. I bet many of…

You aren’t a leader if all you do is bark orders.

Over the course of my life I have run across many leaders who have taught me, shaped me, and encouraged me to follow in their footsteps. The biggest lesson I have learned is that there is a major difference between being a leader and being a dictator. We can all name at least 1 person…

Praying without the end in mind.

How many of us have just PRAYED so diligently for something to happen whether it be big or small? Yep. I can even remember times where I prayed over and over again for something that I THOUGHT I wanted. For instance, I prayed that God would just open doors (so generic – right?). I had…

The small town I left.

I am from this small town called Henderson, NC. And no, this is not Hendersonville, NC…as so many people have confused us with. I left, not because I hated it, but realized that I was not meant to be confined to a town where my potential had a ceiling. There is only so far you…

You don’t need a best friend

Have you ever noticed that a great deal of media portrays a well-known concept called “the best friend?” It seems that in our culture, we have an ideology dedicated to a “soulmate” friendship. I can name at least 8 films/shows that will swoon us to believe that this one friendship will provide us with happiness and meet…

Sex is bad.

This post was a little hard for me to write. I’ve been working on it for over 3 weeks, but felt that it needed to be written in a way for you to understand my perspective. I realize that other people out there struggle with a similar attitude, and I hope this also helps you. So…ever…

You are stuck because you choose to be.

There are so many people that I know who have decided to stay idle and perform a duty/task that isn’t what they aspired to be. Of course, we’ll all travel those routes in life, because they teach us lessons that will benefit us in what we are meant to do! Those lessons prepare us for a…

You can’t forget a mom like mine.

So, my mom is quite the character. Seriously. You will never meet another woman like her – impossible. The one thing I love about my mom is her knack to make you laugh – even when you don’t want to.  You see, she has this laugh that she will use to make you laugh. She…
