Peace That Surpasses Understanding: A Poop Story

Yes. A poop story. Y'all. I waited five years to tell this story. Five years to share about an incomprehensible peace that I experienced on a solo trip to Barcelona in May 2017.

What’s the Best Advice You’ve Ever Received?

The Power of Hope in Eating Disorder Recovery

Hope. I'm not sure I really understood the meaning of hope till I recovered from bulimia in 2016. Y'all, it was HOPE that helped me fight that battle. Hope that kept me scaling that mountain when everything inside was screaming at me to quit. And hope that led to my ultimate victory over ten-plus years …

How do you feel about New Year's resolutions? Maybe it's just me, but it seems like—this year more than ever—making resolutions is a polarizing topic. Darned if you do. Darned if you don't.

Delighting in the Lord… on a Motorcycle

Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." It's one of those Bible verses I've known since childhood. Such a beautiful, powerful promise from God. But I can't say I fully grasped it till recent adulthood—when I moved to Tennessee and met my husband John. Sure, …

3 Times God Spoke and How Saying Yes Changed My Life

Have you ever felt God speak so directly that it shook your soul and changed the course of your life? I have. Three times. It wasn’t that I heard God speak audibly – though He certainly could if He wanted to. His voice didn’t thunder down from heaven. Alarms didn’t go off. Lights didn’t flash. …

How I Recovered From a Decade-Long Battle With Bulimia: My Bulimia Story of Hope

I thought I'd never be free. During the darkest decade of my life, I thought I'd never win my battle against bulimia. It seemed impossible to escape the powerful binge-purge cycle of addiction.

My Facebook Dating Review: A Love Story

I didn’t see it coming. At the start of 2020, I was single. No dating prospects. Not actively seeking to date. Just single. This was yet another area of my life that I finally realized was better left to God—as opposed to me trying to make relationships happen. So, I waited on God for a …
