    My Favorite Foods~Day 5 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge

    Hello lovely readers and followers! Welcome back to Day 5 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge! Today’s Topic: My Favorite Foods and Why My Favorite Foods I kind of consider myself a foodie, as I love to eat. I am a picky eater though. My stomach only tolerates bland foods, so some people may think my tastes are rather boring. These are five of the most interesting and tasty dishes that I love! 1. Breakfast Food I have a thing for breakfast food–it’s almost like a romance really. I’m definitely not a morning person, and sometimes the thought of breakfast is the only motivation for me not to hit the snooze button!…

    Colorful Jackets + Life Updates!

    Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! Time for a (happy) medical update 🙂 The new medications I am on for my IBS are working! Finally, my digestive system is functioning more like a normal person. Now we just need to work on my blood pressure. Thank you so much for all of your prayers!

    Quote Challenge~Day 2 (James Dean)

    Hello lovely readers and followers! It’s Day 2 of the Quote challenge–where I post my favorite quotes and nominate other bloggers for 3 days. Today’s quote is by the late Hollywood actor, James Dean. To be honest, I’ve never seen any of his movies. However, I always thought he was cute as a teen and still have a picture of him in my room with this quote! When I first heard this quote, I loved how it encouraged me to dream impossible dreams. I am a dreamer at heart, and that’s probably why I love to write. But I want to be more than just a dreamer. I want to…

    The Secret to Faith

    Life is hard. We all know it, and there’s no way of getting around it. Becoming a Christian is a not a “get out of the hard life free” card. In fact, it can seem like everything in the world is attacking when you dive deeper into a relationship with Jesus. This post is running a day late because life got hard. I’m battling illnesses that cause me to be exhausted, dizzy, and in pain. No, I’m not trying to one-up anyone here. It’s not like I have some terminal illness or life threatening disease. But what I do have is complicated, uncommon, and really annoying because it is difficult to manage. But…
