A Walk with Me

Hope in 31

I’ve done it again… between work, other numerous personal responsibilities and unexpected situations, the last month has been ROUGH and I’ve allowed myself to feel comfortable in my frustration.

Why are you even here?

Reflecting back on when this site first launched, I’m realizing that this probably should have been one of my first post… But God’s timing is perfect, right? Someone right now, in this moment needs to read this.  Who am I and why am I here (on Earth)? I don’t think my life really actually started until these two questions were answered. If you know me, you’ve probably heard me say this a million times but I strongly believe in the power of ...
