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.

Even if I never get married. Even if the job never comes through. Even if I don’t get into medical school. Even if I cry until I can’t breathe, I will follow You. When I feel alone on Valentine’s Day, The Lord is my strength. When I’m afraid that everything’s going wrong, God tells me … More Like a Surprise Party
Well, it’s Wednesday, and it’s beautiful outside. This morning began with me half-convincing myself to get out of bed and half-deciding I didn’t want to get up for school. Once I had torn myself away from my blankets and stuffed bunny, I had a quick quiet time on my bedroom floor. So, here’s what I … More GOOD Morning!
Hi Blog World, It’s nice to talk to you again. I’m not even sure where to start! So much has changed, even though-really-very little has. My heart has changed.
