What is Our Purpose?

If you read my high school journals, you’d know that I constantly struggled with the question: what is my purpose? To me, purpose was confusing and something that I had to figure out. I struggled with who I was and what I was supposed to do. (Who hasn’t asked themselves those when growing up?) I… Continue reading What is Our Purpose?

Four Ways to Root Your Identity in Christ Amidst the Craziness of Life

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say we’ve all been there. Saying yes to too much, and now you’re scrambling to do it all. Leaving out what we know matters most: sitting at the feet of Jesus like Mary in Luke 10:42.  We might not complain to Jesus that our sister is not helping… Continue reading Four Ways to Root Your Identity in Christ Amidst the Craziness of Life

How Our Personalities Point to Our Purpose

My personality says I shouldn’t share my writing, because I’m shy, I don’t enjoy the technical side of it, and I can’t control how it’s perceived over the internet.  BUT I choose to believe God is equipping me so I can go where He leads. You can too!  Because we are created for a purpose,… Continue reading How Our Personalities Point to Our Purpose

How Our Past Can Point to Our Purpose

The door was closed so no one would know… My first experience with watching something I shouldn’t was when I was really young.

I pushed… Continue reading How Our Past Can Point to Our Purpose

How to Not Allow Your Emotions to Consume You: Part 3 of 3

Again it’s a mixture of hurt, anger, and insecurity. The consuming feeling I don’t belong is confirmed when I scroll on social media. FOMO is real, but so is introversion.

Fear of rejection is greater than my… Continue reading How to Not Allow Your Emotions to Consume You: Part 3 of 3

How to Not Allow Your Emotions Consume You: Part 1 of 3

I was 15. We finished performing our play. Back on the bus, we could pull out our phones. I smiled when I saw the notification. My heart sank as I swiped to read the message.

A Pandemic Doesn’t Prohibit God’s Prosperous Plans

There wasn’t a pandemic when I graduated in 2018, but I experienced a halt in my plans due to external, as well as internal, factors. I planned to go to Peru, with a group of strangers, the week after I graduated for a mission trip. That is, until I sought counsel from my parents which… Continue reading A Pandemic Doesn’t Prohibit God’s Prosperous Plans

How Does The Cross Change My Identity

The symbol of easter is a cross. Yes, it used to stand for death, but now it means more. “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24) The cross means we have the choice to accept the… Continue reading How Does The Cross Change My Identity
