I will never forget the day I sat on the floor of my bedroom crying my eyes out because my life was going in a completely opposite direction from where I thought it was going. When I finished high school, I made a failed attempt at going to Bible college, and then I moved home and started working at my church. I was a production assistant and focused mainly on sound, lights, and graphics. And I loved my job. I loved every single second of it and decided it was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.Read More
Are you an excessive planner? A bonafide perfectionist? Maybe even a little bit of a control-freak? Hey.. me too, girl!
I’ve always been religious with carrying a planner, writing down anything and everything that’s going on in my life. You could always count on me to plan any party, trip, or hangout session down to the minute (I apologize to all of my friends and family that I’ve probably stressed to the max due to my obsession).
I’d always get comments like “Why can’t we just go with the flow?” or “Why does it matter if we’re a little late?”
But thinking about just one thing going wrong because I didn’t plan everything down to the smallest detail gave me nightmares. I’ve always thought that the perfect plan was the solution to any problem!

Growing up, the knives in my family kitchen were always dull. My momma had a fear of cutting herself while cooking, so she never let my dad sharpen any of our cutlery. While she was very content with having to deal with the dull utensils, my sister and I always complained.
It was always difficult to cut through vegetables and fruits, getting even slices was out of the question, and prepping food always took way longer than it should! In the end, cooking with the un-sharpened knives was very frustrating, time consuming, and led to sub-par results.
Sometimes in life, we ourselves can be just like those dull knives!
When we refuse to sharpen ourselves, attempts at fulfilling God’s purpose in our life can be frustrating and seem a little hopeless. It can take longer than necessary and give us results that don’t turn out exactly as we’d hoped.Read More
Have you ever had a plan that didn’t quite pan out? Maybe you’ve had 2 or 3, or even 20 plans that never seemed to work.
Sometimes you think you have the perfect idea, you have the energy and initiative to get started, but then it eventually just runs out of steam or you hit a dead end.
This always seemed to happen to me when it came to following my dreams.Read More
