What about when you’re alone with your boyfriend or future boyfriend?
Countless friends have recently asked me this question, and I feel as though it is such a hard battle to face and discuss. I tried my best to be understanding and transparent, and every time I prayed about this for my sweet friends, a word kept coming to my mind: boundaries.

Psalm 56:8- The Message You’ve kept track of my every toss and turn through the sleepless nights, Each tear entered in your ledger, each ache written in your book. This past week has been a tough one for my family and I as we faced some pretty horrible viruses. Regardless of the pain you are […]

I’m gonna tell you, I am in no way a fashion expert, and half of the time I don’t know what I’m doing when I’m putting together a ‘stylish’ outfit. I’m just an average girl, who loves fashion (and putting outfits together!) and tries to look as best as she can. On days when I […]


by: Erin Kass BEAUTIFULLY WEIRD I am weird. I don’t easily fit into one social category. Growing up I had different types of friends.

Back in April, I went on a trip to Washington that literally changed my life and the way that I see the photo business. Kristin and Katie were God-given friends, and if it were not for their obedience, this retreat never would have been planned. For them, I am so thankful. They created a website, […]

Retreats + Workshops

By: Sarah Danaher www.ampersandphoto.com   Last week I got a Facebook message from an old friend who is recently engaged and planning her wedding. She emailed several of us single women because, as the thoughtful, intentional woman that she is, she wants to care well for the younger, single women who will be attending her […]


I look at these pictures below and have a smile from ear to ear.  These 16 girls below mean the word to me! When I had the honor of being a part of the Pursuing the Light Retreat last April, I had no idea that it was just the beginning.  I share a little bit […]


Recently I have been going through old journals of my great-grandmothers! Most of her writings are poems and quotes from other people with a few of her own poems mixed in.
