I’m a teacher! Why and how I switched careers in my later thirties :)

When God Redirects! It all started with some discontent. Ain't nothing like a lil holy discontent to mess up your life 🙂 . Allow me to take you back a bit. I quit college in 2006 because I was pregnant and single and I just couldn't manage the tragedy that was now my life. My …

I’m A Prophet… Now what? From revelation to acceptance.

I know, I know. I can hardly even admit it to myself sometimes. I can hear y'all saying, "well how she went from being a journalist to a prophet..." Same thing I ask myself. I'm a teacher now too... But hear me out. I'd stopped blogging because I was getting weary and confused. I graduated …

To 20-year-old me: “I saw the end.”

  Dear sweet broken-hearted girl, You are so smart and talented and brave. And above all else you are beautiful. You are a beautiful soul. No one has ever told you that. But if they did, you probably wouldn't accept it. You spend all your days avoiding mirrors just tearing yourself apart. Your not as petite, …

While You Wait… (Be of Good Courage)

Remember.... This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are …

God, is That You? (Hearing God, Part 1)

  I still feel somewhat weird when I talk to friends and family and I say "well God told me.." and they look at me funny. Or sometimes, in my meditation time the Lord will reveal something to me that excites me so much that I just want to tell someone but because I know …

Father, I come.

Father I come, Today I am feeling the weight of this walk. Today it is heavy. The process feels burdensome and the road feels so, so long. It seems as though I'll never scale these mountains. It seems as though I'll never see green pastures or still waters. It feels as though this sadness and …

My prayer

Father, I have been trying to make sense of all the things that have happened to me this previous year. It's been a painful year. One filled with many disappointments and many setbacks but I know in the deepest, most sacred parts of me that I have been strengthened, enlightened and made new. I know …

Dear 2014…

You kicked my butt so bad some days I wanted to give up on life. There were times I thought I would never make it through but you are coming to a close and I am still here. I outlasted you. And that in itself is a reason to rejoice. Still, I hold no bitterness …
