    To the Girl Who Feels Disconnected from Jesus

    Have you ever felt disconnected from Jesus? You still believe in God, but you are just going through the motions. Your faith feels…dry. I think that if we’re being honest, all of us have felt this way before. I just went through a season like this. I felt burdened by temptations and the demands of everyday life. There have also been exciting life events (such as the birth of my niece!), as well as difficult ones (like a family member being ill). Sometimes the noise of life drowns out the voice and presence of God. And then the absence of His felt presence causes us to be lethargic in our…

    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…

I tend to wander around my apartment at night without my glasses, and that often leads to missed steps and stubbed toes.  However, a little light from my phone’s screen changes everything. Suddenly I see what’s right in front of me. I know exactly how far the edge of my bed is or if there’s a cat toy on the floor.  I see things as they really are.

    When Self-Love is Not Enough

    Almost every time I browse through Instagram, I see a cute post from an influencer with some catchy self-love motto. Sound familiar? Even I’ve posted them before, so it’s totally relatable. I’ve actually written a prior post on self-love and how true love must be rooted in Christ for us to gain confidence in who we are. But what if some of these self-love affirmations and teachings actually aren’t Biblical? While they may sound cute and can encourage us at times when we have low confidence, they are often rooted in pride. I’m not saying that all girls on social media or blog sites dedicated to self-love are prideful or…

    3 Christian Dating Rules to Break

    Relationship advice is everywhere–even for the Christian girl. Whether it’s a book, blog post, or podcast, we have access to loads of info on how to rock a relationship or find “the one.” Most of the time the advice is offered in good faith. There are many helpful tips on dating and marriage–and there are some pretty terrible ones as well.  But what about the advice that seems legit, but might actually do more harm than good? What about the dating rules that sound Godly, but if taken too far can actually be harmful?  I want to tackle three common rules of Christian dating that should be challenged. None of…
