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.

Bright & Cheery Portrait inspiration

by: Molli Hughes My cheeks flush red. You can no longer see the freckles that dot my nose. Instead my face is dusted with a rosy tint. My fingers tremble as adrenaline courses though my blood. This. The moment I had envisioned for months, was finally unfolding before me. The moment I step on a […]

Oh you guys!!! This recipe came to life when I was in the middle of cleaning out my fridge of all things!!

It was almost 8 months ago that I made this for the very first time, and now it’s something I make by the week. I absolutely love that I can make a whole pan ahead of time and have a week’s worth of breakfast ready in the fridge! I used to think being gluten and dairy free was […]

Go and do. I heard the word for the first time when I was 18.  I had been to a YWAM base four times throughout my high school years, and it enticed me.  The culture was so life-giving and so different from what I knew at home, and I wanted to be a part of […]

Mediterranean food has to be one of my very favorite types. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m one fourth Greek, or maybe it’s the fact that my grandma taught me all her tips and tricks of how to make the perfect authentic Greek food when I was growing up. Either way, my heart skips a […]

I’ll always remember seeing those eyes. Those eyes, that stared back at me, pierced softly but deeply. It was a sweet little girl, an orphan in Haiti, peering through the turquoise painted window sill as we walked up toward the door. I photographed a picture of those eyes – and that picture is etched into […]

I remember it like it was yesterday. Maybe it’s because five years isn’t a very long time, or maybe it’s because my life was so greatly affected by it. In May of 2011, I was diagnosed with a nerve condition that left six of my toes immobile. There were days I wasn’t quite sure I’d […]
