Happy new year! If you are like me, new beginnings birth new hopes in my heart. The year 2021 is no different. Yet, the new hope may dim when we consider the realities around us, the fact that 2021 is awfully similar to 2020. Last…
A Letter to My Younger Self: Salvation will be the focal point of your life.
Honey, I know you served in the Christian Union (CU) as the prayer secretary, but do not fool yourself that you are born again. I do not blame you, though. You just don’t understand the meaning of salvation, yet!
Guest Post: A Letter To My Younger Self: How to Navigate Your 20’s.
The one ‘problem’ that comes up when a 31-year-old writes a letter to their younger self is an acute awareness that there isn’t much history to write about. The message would most likely only span a decade worth of life. However, that said, a decade is enough time to look back at and have enough to say.

Marriage: A Delightfully Difficult Mountain to Climb
We celebrated our first year anniversary this week. Despite the cold weather and the anniversary falling on a Monday, the blues had nothing on us: our home was filled with warmth by our palpable excitement, hearty waves of laughter, and thanksgiving as we reminisced the journey to the wedding and the delightfully difficult mountain we have climbed thus far.

Guest Post: Suffering Well Through the Death of a Loved One
After what seemed like an eternity of rigorous attempts to save her, the team of doctors, in a synchronized fashion, stopped and slowly stepped away from the bed.
