22 Things // A Birthday Reflection

It’s my birthday today. I’ve only posted once before about my birthday (the 18 Things Learned in 2019 post) but this year I wanted to do a sort of reflection on how far I’ve come in the past year. This post, by the way, was inspired by Roseanna M. White’s post 40 Things—things learned, discovered,Continue reading “22 Things // A Birthday Reflection”

Hello, 2023, the Year of Restoration

It’s been 2023 for 11 days. I haven’t been charmed, to be honest. We’ve have wave after wave of troubles and bad news. I’ve been utterly swamped and stressed. But yesterday in my devotions I read, “Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof,” and I’m hoping it’s true for 2023 too. I completelyContinue reading “Hello, 2023, the Year of Restoration”

How I Created My Writing Style 

A common theme when people read my writing is the comments on my writing style. Many have asked me how I do it and today I thought I would do my best to answer that question.

Are the High Places Removed?

Have you done a Bible-in-a-year challenge? I’ve been doing it for two to three years now and it’s been amazing.

It was a chronological challenge, so I was reading through 1st & 2nd KingsContinue reading “Are the High Places Removed?”
