As the years go on.

Two years ago, I lost a brother and friend. Jon Oddi was someone who still brings a smile to my face. I miss his laugh, his smile, his silly dance moves and how he always brought joy to those around him. He was someone who loved me at my worst and loved me at my … Continue reading

A hug for a sister.

A hug for a sister.

If you’re a woman, Happy International Women’s Day ! I’ve been spending a lot of time asking the Lord to help me be a woman of Him. To be someone who respects herself, values who I am and finds my security in Him rather than the world around me and the ideas they press on … Continue reading

You can overcome.
