Life

It Always Does

Photo via @lecrae Since November is coming to a close, I thought now was a good time to share a moment of transparency. A year ago, I felt like I was in the pit of hell. I didn’t even know when, how, or If I was going to make it out — But GOD! Being […] Read more…

A Lesson To Be Learned

You try to take a few steps forward and somehow something sets you back. I recently heard someone say, no matter what, keep pursuing that desire that is on the inside […] Read more…

15 Confessions

Here I am thinking of so many random thoughts, like I always do the night before a race. So here goes… I still haven’t seen Girls Trip.  I’m falling in love with blogging all over again.

Then Life Happened

I know you all have been wondering where I’ve been over the past few months. This is, by far, the hardest post I’ve ever had to write. I had a major life change. My beautiful Mother went home to be with the Lord and it still seems so unreal. If you’re like me, you believe […] Read more…
