Although I really need to post a general life update, instead I'm going to share my thoughts on a faith topic that I've been thinking about. As you may have guessed, that topic is the Church as the Bride of Christ. I'll allow the explanation of what it means to be the bride of Christ to come… Continue reading The Bride of Christ
As I wrote in my previous post, God has blessed me beyond words during my short time in Wake Forest. The ways that He has provided for me are wonderful and have far exceeded any of my expectations. However, it just doesn't feel like home yet. Right now, Williamsburg still feels like my home, and… Continue reading This is Home?
Well, since I last wrote, so many good things have happened. God has blessed me more than I ever could have expected, and of course, more than I could ever deserve. To start off, I was hired as a Library Assistant and the SEBTS Library. Throughout the whole process of applying and interviewing, I really… Continue reading Listen to the Sound of a New Beginning
Wow! When I initially began writing this post yesterday evening, I was excited about all of the ways that I could see God bringing things together for me.

Additionally,… Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions
I started this post a while ago, with intentions of publishing it around graduation. Better late than never? As I transition from college to seminary, I've been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting on my college experience. I thought of this song (video below) from Mulan and have been pondering the question, "Does my reflection show… Continue reading Reflection
"Christmas is here, mistletoe and laughter, carols and bells ringing to the rafters, lights on the tree, candles all aglow and all who pass by say hello..." That's my favorite song from the Garfield Christmas special, but Christmas is here, and right now I'm left with more questions than I have answers it seems like.… Continue reading Christmas Thoughts
Tonight in preparation for Christmas I read over the account of the Christmas story in Luke 2. When I read it, I always hear Linus' voice in my head. I also read some of the verses at the end of Luke 1: 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his… Continue reading Blessed is She who Believed
