Featured: Kylie’s Pop Shop

Jan 31, 2015

She would bring us her delicious cake pops every week and I fell in love with these little things. Kylie is talented, y’all. Not only are her cake pops super tasty, […]

the community that wasn’t there

Jan 30, 2015

As the last Friday of the month is here, I was asking God what to write to sum up my month on writing focused on community. I couldn’t get out of my mind a comment I received on last weeks post and kept trying to focus instead on hearing God instead of being distracted. Eventually I […]

Often we look around where we live and get bored, or maybe you just dont like where you’re living because its not “pretty enough”.  You probably see all those gorgeous places from your favorite photographers and you throw your hands up and say “Ill never have photos like that, theres no cliffs or waterfalls near […]

{Be Confident} When Community Breaks Your Heart

Jan 28, 2015

I made the mistake of turning the TV on. I know, I know, I should have been content with Netflix, but I closed my computer and turned the TV on anyway. I’m not one to watch the news- don’t get me wrong, I think it’s SUPA important to stay informed, but every time I watch […]

{Be Real} A Glimpse of Heaven

Jan 26, 2015

When you find your people, you just know it. People that just “get” you. People that inspire you. People who are real, who are a refuge. You know, people who make you feel good about being human. Who fill your heart with hopes and dreams and encouragement. This fall, I went to a conference in […]

Jan 23, 2015

This last fall, I was living in a close-knit community. When I say that, I mean I was living in a 4-bedroom house with 23 people with another 20 down the road in another house (we were all working for a non-profit doing outreach, events, worship nights, nationwide tours, and more in the southern California […]

Don’t get lost {Delight & Be Savvy}

Jan 22, 2015

Often times I get really wrapped up in everything that comes with running a small photography business, from finances and bookings to editing and keeping up with my social media. It can be one big viscous cycle and before you know it, you find yourself constantly sitting at the computer hopping from program to program, […]

{Be Confident} The Beauty of Being Different

Jan 21, 2015

When I was a senior in high school I was restless.  In a world filled with college applications and dreams of the future I had no idea what I was going to do with my life.  I had so many interests in so many things.  While my friends knew what they wanted to get their […]

{Be Real} The Answer is You

Jan 19, 2015

Let’s be real: looking for community is just plain hard. I think deep inside ourselves, we know what community is meant to be. We know God intends real community to be a space for us to love and be loved, for us to be challenged, to be kept accountable, to feel known and accepted, where […]

{Be Loving} A Way To Break The Mundane

Jan 16, 2015

I have a feeling I’m not the only one who has ever felt…well…kind of bored in the church world (*DUN DUN DUNNNN!*). Included in that is this: I don’t think I’m the only one who has felt a lack of vitality in a small group/youth group/high school group/etc. Even if you’ve been blessed with incredible […]

{Be Confident} the Compass of Community

Jan 14, 2015

Situation and circumstance are the grounds in which satan plays. In a world of billions of people he tries to convince us that we are, in fact, alone. We can sit in a room of crowded people and somehow feel like no one can possibility understand what we’re going through. We forget that there are […]
