As many of you know, I’m on the craziest journey right now. I’ve never experienced God’s favor and so many open doors in my life! God opened the door for me to have my very first article published in a local newspaper, Gulf Coast Family, for the month of July. They’ve just asked me to write another article for August! I’m also finishing my book proposal for my very first devotional book for moms and working on pieces for peer critique for an upcoming writers conference. We also stay very busy with our youth group since my husband is the youth pastor. We’ve been fundraising for months now for our summer trip to Tennessee. On top of both of us working second jobs. We. Are. Insane. lol
I’m so thankful, but quite frankly a bit overwhelmed. That being said, my posts here will be slightly limited over the next week or two so that I can properly prepare for my upcoming conference and youth events. Don’t worry, I’ll post pictures and share when I get back. Please connect with me on Instagram & Twitter to stay connected with me! I’ll be posting pictures from the conference!
I love each of you so much! Please keep me in your prayers! I’m praying for you! 🙂

If you know me, you know being speechless is not a common struggle for me. Well, sometimes God just completely blows you away and you’re left with your mouth gaping wide open.
My mind has been blown. And before I could regain my composure, BOOM. Mind blown. Again. And Again. Is this normal for approaching age 26? If so, someone should warn somebody. Quick.
I can promise you, I’m no saint. I’m not an honor roll graduate. I’m a simple, small town girl who God has totally overwhelmed with His loving kindness. I’m no different from you. I’m a child of the King of kings and I take my relationship with my Savior seriously. I’m obnoxious sometimes and I love big.
God birthed the love of writing in me at a very young age. I’ve always loved it and frequently complimented on my knack for it. I don’t say that to brag, please hear my heart past these squealing little shrieks coming from the inside. My very first article was just published in a local newspaper called Gulf Coast Family and it stretches across Pinellas and Hillsborough County. I’m not even sure how to spell my name today. Or even if that matters at the moment.
Our. God. Is. Good. Even when we’ve royally screwed up our lives. When we think we’ve reached the point of no return, God sneaks in a U-Turn sign and gives us another chance. A brighter life. An alternative.
“Come to me..” He’s calling you.
This isn’t a long post today. I am literally speechless. I’m so grateful that God has smiled on me during this season in my life. I have never in my life had so many open doors. Hence the hashtag #GodisAwesome
I want to shout to the heavens and cry like a baby at the same time. I can’t stop smiling. I want to break out in a praise dance but God knows I can’t dance. Maybe I’ll just go buy more Kleenex. God has totally messed me up lately. In a good way. 🙂
I just want to encourage you today, my sweet friend, pursue your dreams. Don’t you dare give up. You’ve come to far to turn back now. Follow those desires and longings God placed in your heart. Beth Moore said this past weekend at Living Proof Live that He has pre-wired us to fulfill the longings He has placed in our souls. That our longings lie open before the Lord.
Let’s pause a moment. What are you longing for today? What makes your heart swell within you? Could it be that your heart beats wildly at the hope of fulfilling what God has pre-wired you to accomplish on this earth?
I challenge you today to find something awesome God has done or is currently doing in your life. He so deserves our praise and adoration. Because regardless of how we feel some days, our God really, really, really is AWESOME!
Share below what God is doing or has done in your life! I’d love to hear from you!
