Here we are at the beginning of September and as we begin to change seasons, I am just not in the mood! I'm not in the mood to move ahead of God when He's been working with me for a while on how to just Be Still. I'm not in the mood to keep doing … Continue reading I’m Not in the Mood
A few weeks ago, I wrote about how important it is to forgive others - no matter what they've done (find that post here). Similarly, we need to forgives ourselves for what we've done as well. I know we often tend to be our own worst critics, but none of us are perfect. I'm glad … Continue reading You Need to Forgive Yourself

We were all made differently, but I am not of this world. Sometimes I feel like I don't fit … Continue reading Misunderstood..

You. are. beautiful. You. are. phenomenal. You. are. enough. No one else can take that away from you....but you. Haters will hate. Loved ones might hit you with low blows when they're angry.
