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.

Earlier this year I felt God calling me to make some drastic changes in my life.  His calling did not look like what I, nor anyone that knows me, had expected.  I was called to further surrender, to scratch many of my premeditated plans and to face some unknowns. To get out of my comfort zone. He calls and […]

{Be Nourished} A Comforting Bowl of Pumpkin & Tofu Thai Curry

Hey guys! Whew, it’s been a whirlwind past couple of weeks! The blog has had some AMAZING posts lately… I am blown away by how beautifully talented each one of our blog contributors are! Last week I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Brandy of Brandy Dawson Photography. This woman is fierce, driven, and a pillar of […]

I’m going to be very transparent here. I believe that you deserve that and that transparency in my position is not only important but necessary. The last month of my life a lot has come crashing down. I refer to what I’ve been experiencing as a “fog.” My brain is weighty and clouded due to […]

by: Stephanie Tait It was the day after Halloween and I found myself standing squarely in the middle of my living room letting out a silent scream. A Christmas commercial. Amidst the discarded hulk mask and superhero cape and the crinkled up wrappers from last nights snicker bar binge it was all I could do […]


  I have been asked many times how to land assistant gigs, second shooting jobs, ect. The biggest thing I suggest you do is start networking, and putting yourself out there! Join Facebook groups geared towards second shooting and see if there are any for your area specifically! Try to reach out to local photographers and ask […]

She stood, with sword in hand, staring at the very thing she had come to vanquish.  He smiled, but his smile didn’t touch his eyes, no.  His smiled stayed on his lips, and then suddenly he was charging towards her.  Bell lifted her sword to defend herself from the impact of his blow, and their […]

Have you ever had a hard time taking the next step? I think we all feel a bit uneasy at times, am I right? This entire year, God has been guiding me and bringing me from a place of “hiding” into a place of complete freedom of joy. At first, it feels awkward and out of […]

Happy Tuesday, Ladies!! I’d like you to meet the sweet Emily Boyd and her knitted goods shop, Goldberry Artisans. I have been creating for as long as I can remember, and I learned how to knit at age 10. A few years after that, many people told me that I should sell my knitting projects, […]


The wind blows, and the leaves fall all around. Like a child, I laugh and I joy in their falling. I see them float beautifully to the ground, and oh, how I wish I could float gracefully to the ground. Surrendering, it’s hard. I fight it. I fight it with everything in me. When God […]

As we held our tea mugs and talked about the week past and the week to come, it came up… the tradition that has become unwanted. We shared our hearts about some of the dreaded family gatherings, and the anxiety towards those we are not too eager to see. Because that is what we do on a […]

Heading across the country on an airplane multiple times this fall has given me a new appreciation for reading. Prior to this fall, I’ve hardly ever been one to love to curl up and read for enjoyment (I know, I can hear the collective groaning now!) as I am much more engrossed in visual things […]


I sit here looking out at the window gazing at the Columbia River & am in awe of what God has already done since arriving here on Monday. This home, filled with seventeen women from across the nation, has been a place where God has already mightily moved. . .and we still have until Friday […]
