    An Identity Crisis

    Like many people who work from home, I find myself cozying up with my coffee and listening to music. One day, as I was jamming to Pandora, an advertisement popped up.  It stood out to me because it wasn’t one of those obnoxious jingles for a cleaning product. It was an ad for a podcast. What really struck me was the ad’s last sentence, which went something like this:  All are welcome here, no matter how you choose to identify.  In 2021, a statement like this is considered normal. But something about it bothered me. Pretty ironic for a girl who blogs about helping other women find their identity in…

    The Secret Power of Gratitude

      It’s the holiday season. We are bundling up in scarves and mittens; buying gifts and trimming the Christmas tree. Although Christmas is almost upon us, I still keep thinking of Thanksgiving and the idea of practicing gratitude in everyday life.  The holiday season is a difficult time of year for many people. So many of us have experienced loss over the years. And many are still isolated due to the pandemic. And of course, this is one of the busiest times of year, adding stress to our plates. Kind of hard to always feel grateful when all of this is a lead weight on your shoulders. If you feel…

    Spring 2021 Christian Girl Book Review

    Happy spring, lovely one! The trees are turning green, and the flowers are blooming. Despite the beautiful, mild weather, I still find myself drawn to my books. I have a bad habit of reading more than one book at a time because I just don’t have the patience to wait!  Today I want to treat you to a book review of two authors who are very dear to me. Beckie Lindsey and Anneliese Dalaba are not only gifted writers, but faithful women of God who are an inspiration. Both Anneliese and Beckie have endured great hardship over this past year, but their faith and perseverance is a light to many–including…

    To the Christian Girl Who is Waiting for Healing

    Hello lovely one! My goal is to revive this blog, and I wanted to give you all an update on something important in my life: My health journey.  The subject of healing was often the kryptonite of my faith. I’ve often wondered, why does God heal some people in this life, while letting others suffer? Why does He answer the prayers of certain saints and not others?  My Journey I decided to follow Jesus at the age of seventeen–not really understanding what it meant. That’s also the time my health took a downturn, both mentally and physically.  Throughout the years, God delivered me from depression, panic attacks, hair pulling, and…

    My Thankful List-2020 Edition

    Thanksgiving 2020 is upon us! I don’t know about you, but a week ago I was not exactly feeling grateful. Between the COVID-19 spikes, lockdowns, and political unrest, 2020 has been a difficult year for many.  But my perspective changed when I noticed how my blog post from 5 years ago on my gratitude list was trending. It reminded me that even in the midst of a difficult year, we can always choose to be thankful.  Looking back at my old post, I realize that even though some of the things I am thankful for are the same, my life has changed and I have grown in many ways. If you’ve…
