it’s time to dream again.

Here’s something a little bit different: I want to invite you into this conviction. I want to invite you into this word that’s been spoken over my heart, over my life, like water washing me and relieving me of burdens that I once thought were a part of my back, of chains that I once...

little girl, arise.

It was one of the staple events of the school year; one that everyone looked forward to for months. I didn't want to go.

I know I'm doing what I'm called to be... Continue Reading →
