Life Group: The Life Guards

Two words... Life. Group.: a group of women from all different walks of life, around the same age, that do life with you. You pray together, talk about God together, and just be open and transparent about your daily walk and how difficult or beautiful it could be. The motto at our church is “a place where NO ONE walks alone.”

I'VE HAD ENOUGH!

I'VE HAD ENOUGH!

A Trail of Broken Pieces

A Trail of Broken Pieces

At the age of 28, I find myself falling into the trap of letting the internet rush me. Rush me into thinking that I don’t have a lot of time, I’ll be alone forever, or I have to rush every situation I get into. Society is dangerous and will have you thinking it’s you…”I’M THE PROBLEM.” For 3 or 4 years now I’ve been involved in “situationships” that inevitably could have been easily comparable to trash. I’ve compromised on things that I myself would have deemed as deal breakers and all because of my intense desire to love and be...
