    Life Update + Liebster Award

Although a lot of these twists and turns have been challenges, I can see the growth and blessings behind every single one of them. As many of you know, I am recovering from a broken elbow.

    For My Grandma~A Guest Post by Dainty M

    Hello lovely readers and followers! Sorry I’ve been missing these last couple of weeks. My grandma fell and got really sick. She passed away last week, and it has been very difficult. I also have a new semester starting, so I am trying to adjust to everything. I promise to return to the blogging world soon, but please enjoy a couple of guest posts from the lovely Dainty M in the mean time. Dainty M is a creative Christian blogger who didn’t hesitate to help me in my time of need. She wrote this poem for me, and I find it amazing how God inspired her to write in a way that speaks…
