  • None taken

  • [Not] Deconstructing

    I need to preface all of this by stating that I truly, deeply love Jesus with all my heart, am a big fan of the local church, and still identify as Christian. Reserve the panic and stay with me.

  • Cross-stitch Christianity

    I am blessed to be living in the northern hemisphere, where the temperatures are rising and that sweet summertime energy is coming back. All the ‘yard dad’s’ are out here manicuring their lawns to perfection. Meanwhile, our lawn started the season burnt to a crisp. Like, dead dead.

  • If God is God, then what?

  • Life Prep

    Like any good Millennial Christian, I am a regular consumer of the YouVersion Bible’s reading plans and devotionals.

  • Status: Adopted

We live in a small two-bedroom apartment that is currently missing half of the bottom few shutters on the front blinds. Thanks to said dog one fateful Thursday night.
