On September 15th, 2017, my sweet daddy, Bo, passed away after a long fight against cancer. I believe that before we were born, God set the length of our lives. God is entirely good and sovereign. I believe He allows “bad things” to happen to us in His perfect and loving will for our good and His glory. Nothing we go through catches Him by surprise, and He holds our lives in His hand.

This week has been hard. Emotional conversations and a 3.5 hour rehearsal on Sunday. A test that didn’t go as well as I hoped on Monday. A test that really didn’t go as well as I hoped today. Now there’s a hailstorm scheduled for 10 at night that I might have to walk through. But. … More TBH

Who you are is enough. You are made perfectly. You don’t have to try. Who you are is enough. You’re a sweetheart. You have pretty hair, cool eyes, and a sweet smile.
