  • HINDSIGHT IS 2020

    Within your heart you can make plans for your future, but the Lord chooses the steps you take to get there. -Proverbs 16:9 9 TPT Hindsight is 2020 — literally — this year. Looking back at the past decade can give so much insight into how to prayerfully walk into the new decade ahead.

  • 23

    Today is my 23rd birthday. Psalm 23 feels extra fitting for me in these days, not to mention it’s also my new age.

In this very moment, I have never been this old and I will never be this young ever again. No matter your age, I’m sure you can relate to this crazy paradox.

    A year ago I was starting my senior year of college. Fast forward to this year…I find myself driving down the same road, but my car isn’t filled to the top with bedding and clothes and all the school things I “need” to survive sorority house living.

  • PENNY PEOPLE

    Friends are like pennies from heaven. This phrase tugged at my heart a few days ago after doing a Winnefred Austin tote bag photoshoot. I brought along 3 dear friends for modeling and photographing. Even though none of them had met before, we were a bunch of giggling little girls by the time the photos were finished.
