    Young, Unashamed + Planted in Purpose

    On Feb. 11th I had the opportunity to speak at a conference at Love in Action Community Ministries in Battle Creek, MI. I shared the message of being young, ashamed, and planted in purpose. It was an amazing opportunity and God touched my life and the lives of many others! I wasn’t going to share this on here because I’m not the best public speaker but I believe that there is someone out here who needs to hear these words! My prayer is that this finds whoever needs to hear. Sorry about the quality of the video. If given the opportunity to speak again, I will definitely make sure that…

    How to Declutter Your Life

    “Clutter is the physical manifestation of unmade decision fueled by procrastination.” – Christina Scalise Over the years I’ve noticed that the condition of my room accurately represents how I feel. When I’m distracted and unfocused, my room is cluttered and messy. When I’m clearheaded and centered, my room is often (key word: OFTEN lol) clean and everything is in place. Often times your mess is what’s causing your stress! If you’re feeling worn out or tired, take an inventory of the clutter in your life. You might just have some surprising results. *Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, meaning that at no additional cost to you I may receive a…

    Elevate Your Faith to Elevate Your Life

    I’m talking about a spiritual glo up. The type of elevation that allows God to bless you beyond measures. The type of elevation that makes people ask you who, what, and how. This glo up is not just about looking better, it’s about being better and doing better so that you can draw souls to the kingdom of Christ. So I guess by now you’re wondering how you can activate your spiritual glo up? It’s easy and there are only two steps: having faith and taking action.

  • Change Your Thinking & Change Your Life

    What if I told you that you could change your life by simply changing the way that you think? So many of us are going through life angry, upset, and disappointed, and we don’t have to be. Changing the way that you think and view the world around you can have a great impact on your life! Recently, I found myself constantly complaining about everything! I was complaining about school, complaining about having to go to work, complaining that it was too cold, or too windy. Eventually, I started to get on my own nerves.

  • Book Review #3 – The Worn Out Woman

    I finished The Worn Out Woman by Dr. Steve Stephens & Alice Gray in three days. This is saying a lot because I’ve had two midterms, quizzes, and a bunch of homework due this week. This might be the best book I’ve read this year, replacing Don’t Settle for Safe (you can read that review here). In my last book review, I said that I would be reading The Self-Love Experiment by Shannon Keiser next, but after reading a few chapters I decided that book wasn’t for me. Honestly, I had to force myself to read it. I think that truly takes away the enjoyment I get from curling up with a good…

  • 3 Reasons to be Celibate | Lady in the Streets

    So I have been thinking about writing about sex and celibacy for awhile now but could never bring myself to do it. I don’t know if it’s because I still struggle with the temptation or if it’s a little too personal. I am a very private person and one thing I rarely ever talk about with people is my sex life. However, God has placed it on my heart to talk about it and my decision to be celibate. Related: I Was Dreading Valentine’s Day…. I decided to be celibate right around the time that I started blogging seriously. At that time I had just gotten out of a two…
