Everyone Has Their Life Together … Except Me.

I’m gonna let you inside my mind for a second. I couldn’t find a picture taken recently to perfectly capture this theme. The ideal would be a picture with a group of my friends and I, with everyone looking perfect except for me, just chillin’ with a derpy face. BUT, I realized that I had deleted all those…

Why We Need Our Voice To Be Heard

Note: This is definitely a different blog post than I’m used to writing. I don’t want to offend or cause trouble with anyone regarding the examples I’m going to share, so know in advance that I do not have any hard feelings regarding anything I discuss in this blog. This is SUCH an interesting question to explore….

Grandma’s Wisdom: Celebrate Life

This is a hard time of the year. This past Sunday marked the one year anniversary of my grandmother’s passing. She was a very godly woman, popular, with a kindness so big that she would take out every “skip” and “draw two” card in Uno, because it was “so mean to place that horrible card on…

Sufficiency

Perhaps some future day, Lord, Thy strong hand will lead me to the place where I must stand utterly alone, alone, oh gracious Lover, but for Thee. I shall be satisfied if I can see Jesus only. I do not know thy plan for years to come. My spirit finds in Thee its perfect home: sufficiency….

Running in the Mud

This title probably comes as a shock to some. Becca barely knows how to kick a soccerball and yet she loves to run? Well… yes and no.

I attempted to hold back the chuckle that was about to leave my throat, but I don’t think that I succeeded. Little kids…

Why Spain?

I have a feeling that most people have a lot of questions right now relating to what I am doing this July. Why would someone, after recently coming back from an eight month experience out of the country, decide to spend their summer in another one? What’s wrong with the US? What’s wrong with the Dominican…

Missions in the States?

I can’t believe how quickly the busyness and the business mindset of America can get to someone so quickly. I’m already being engulfed into the American culture and the unnecessary busyness that I used to put myself in and am starting to put myself under again. Everything from college paperwork, to taking an online summer class,…

Transitioning…

Let’s just say that transitioning has been one of the hardest things in the world  most interesting experiences I have had. I was at the doctor’s yesterday, and I started bawling out of the blue. Within a couple of hours after landing in the Philly airport, I had already been crying. I haven’t been this…
