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.

Awestruck | Nature Photography Inspiration

“I just don’t feel like myself.” That’s what I heard myself saying to a room full of women, half of which I’d just met. As hard as I tried to keep it all locked inside, the tears began to fall, like I was mourning a someone gone missing. She felt long gone, the real me. […]

Culinary Arts

by: Emily Livingston “My faith is my sanity. It’s true. I am truly not in my right mind when I do not meet with my Heavenly Father in the morning before the hurry of classes and friends and work. My faith is me rolling out of bed a little earlier than I need to and […]


He said it suddenly, and the words pierced through my heart. “I just want you to be open to God about your future as I am.” Inside, I wanted to protest, and say, Yes, I’m just as open as you are. I’m completely surrendered to God’s plan. But instead, tears came. We sat on top […]

Gospel Truths

by:  Shannon Pierce Isn’t it crazy some of the ways we reconnect with people from the past? This is Aino, one of my seniors, and she happens to be a long lost childhood pal. Both Aino and I were homeschooled and when we were young lil munchkins we ended up in a community bible study […]

Retreats + Workshops

by: Shayla Alexander It’s hard not to guard your heart when it was so strongly broken. My heart thrives on relationships, and I covet ones that run deeply. Where that is my greatest strength, that is also my greatest weakness. There are times I feel like I care too much and love too deeply, so […]


Every year, our retreats are scheduled in a way where girls arrive on Thursday evening, and we’ll share our first few hours together getting to know one another over a bowl of hot soup and fresh bread. It’s become a tradition, of sorts, to share homemade soup together on our first night. To be honest, […]

Retreats + Workshops

To be honest, I haven’t really even thought about the words for this post, so here’s to hoping they’ll just fall right onto the page in exactly the right fashion. I guess I should back up to the beginning and say hi. I’m the one behind the scenes you never really see much of, the one who has […]


Tossing and turning with no sleep to be found all night long. . . all because I couldn’t rest & trust in the TRUTH of God’s word. WHY? Why can’t I just stop and trust? And REST! Knowing that He already knows. He already has a perfect plan. Last night we were up late as […]

From Momma Wall's Heart

  by: Emily Fraizer Hey there! My name is Emily. I grew up by the Mediterranean Sea speaking Turkish and eating lots and lots of cucumbers, feta cheese, yogurt, and rice. I moved to America at age 14 and discovered my passion of photography and pursued it to where I am now. Looking over the […]

Real Stories + Testimonies

Whoever receives Jesus and chooses to trust and follow Him have the right to be God’s children.  When Jesus came, he brought a major revelation to the Jewish people.  He was the son of God, telling everyone about the Father who loved them. The Jews were used to a God that was mighty to save, […]
