(10 Minute Read) If my Communication degree has taught me anything, it’s the importance of defining words and phrases to clarify communication before we start. When we say “Black Lives Matter”, what does that mean? It’s been a phrase that’s united millions of people across the world, and yet, the phrase has been villainized by […]Read more "Black Lives Matter."
(4 Minute Read) Since I was a little kid I’ve had an attraction to people. Not like a science-fiction connection, that would be weird. Although I wouldn’t mind being a character in Harry Potter. It’s an empathetic connection. Yet, until I was twenty years old I didn’t realize that’s what it was. I honestly thought […]Read more "Someday is Today"
(3 Minute Read) A couple of weeks ago I read through the book of Acts. I’d never actually read it in-depth so I decided to spend the first couple of weeks post-Easter diving into what the disciples and followers of Jesus did right after his resurrection. I was blown away by what I discovered. So […]Read more "Actions"
(3 Minute Read) In spite of nearly every person on earth offering up their opinion on the coronavirus, I want to give you mine.

I went into the summer of 2018 with one purpose: To have my eyes transformed to see Jesus as friend in my life, and to become a closer friend to Him. […]Read more "Jesus, My Friend"
I had two concussions this past year as a result of playing football, and if I’m being honest they have left me in a lot of pain. Not so much physically, although they brought headaches and pressure to my head, but more so mentally and emotionally. I’ve never had any diagnosed concussions until this year, […]Read more "Healthy"
A couple of weeks ago I was sitting in class and we were watching a debate between an atheist and a theologian. Both of them were brilliant, absolutely brilliant men, with Doctorate degrees, and the debate was very interesting, with both sides presenting conflicting but still intertwining points. What I mean is that science and […]Read more "Homesick"
I turned twenty-three last weekend, and the days leading up to it I couldn’t help but reflect on the previous year. Year twenty-two was full of so much growth. Growth within myself and how I see myself; growth in relationship with people; and mostly (most importantly) growth with our Father and how I perceive Him […]Read more "Twenty-three"
Blessings on blessings on blessings and lessons. 4. LISTENING– What a gift this is to have. To be able to listen to someone speak, or my favorite song (or any song, really) being played through my earbuds, or even simpler and quieter sounds of waterfalls or the wind outside while I’m falling asleep. It’s such […]Read more "No I’m Not Lucky, I’m Blessed (pt. 2)"
