Self love; Not giving up

It’s 11 p.m. and I should be asleep, but for the past few weeks I’ve had a sick stomach. It’s an indescribable feeling, yet I’m for certain we’ve all been there. We’ve felt like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. Like we can’t breathe. Like our heads are being pounded on. Like […]

Mission Trip: VBS

My most favorite aspect of this mission trip was being able to interact with the children of Tizimin during Vacation Bible School. This wonderful lady, who has literally been sent by God, for these children heads up the school/church responsible for their formation. Her name is Magdalena Saldana. She has the spirit of a lion.

Mission Trip: the beginning of greatness

Hey everyone! Long time no talk. I truly apologize for being away for so long. However, I’m excited to share why I’ve been gone from the blogger world for more than three weeks. I was on a mission trip with Micah. We traveled to Tizimin, which is in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. To say […]

For we are dust

It’s Ash Wednesday. Lately, I’ve been having a hard time explaining who I am, as if feeling who I am is so wrong. Mostly it’s because, if I am, who I am; then it might not make others happy. Then there’s resentment. No on wants that. No one wants to cause it. So I’ve been […]

This Love

When it comes to falling in and out of love, I’ve done things I’m not proud of. I’ve been hurt, terribly, but I’ve also hurt others out of spite. However, there is one thing I actually did well, and that was falling in love with Micah! My love life hasn’t always been easy, but with […]

Powerful

I’ve been absent for more than a week and I’m not complaining. Believe me, what I went through wasn’t anything too alarming, on the contrary, this situation helped me build up my survival skills. It didn’t work much, but at least now I know that those skills are nonexistent. None-the-less,  southwest Kansas experienced a trace […]

Theology Thursday: I am a woman who loves the Lord

Brr, we got some snow today. The entire day was filled with the falling cold, which made school just a little be deary, but just like the students I powered through. Being back in school today was so uplifting. It’s so surprising that motivation comes from being up and about– moving. All the same God […]

Theology Thursday: Why evil exists

I’ve pondered on this thought multiple times and it’s been the topic of conversation in various bible study sessions: Why does God allow evil in this world? That’s a good question. It’s natural to think that if God is filled with good and He loves us so much then why does he allow us to […]

Theology Thursday: His Will

First of all Happy Immaculate Conception. When Gabriel the angel appeared and informed Mary of God’s will for her, one can imagine the utter shock she went through. She was conflicted and thoughtful. However in order to understand God’s will, she prayed. Today more than anything we celebrate Mary and the way she so diligently […]

Theology Thursday: Giving Thanks

Every time I think of the wonderful things God gives me, I’m naturally grateful. Just simply thinking that God has granted me life for more than 28 years is enough to sing praises to my Lord. I’ve been given so much. I have two wonderful parents that have given their lives for me. I have […]
