It’s with a heavy heart that I write this post. I had a different topic planned. But after watching the news about the Las Vegas shooting this week, I knew I needed to postpone it. On October 1st, 2017, one man killed around 60 people, and injured over 500 at a Jason Aldean concert in… Read More When Bad Things Happen: Las Vegas Shooting
I walk into church and people are already talking to each other in their seats or in the lobby. They smile and laugh, happy to be in their own groups. Everyone belongs to a group. They sit together with the friends they’ve had for years. They make plans for lunch after service, patting themselves on… Read More Looking at the Church: Do You Feel Like You Belong?

It’s with other Christians that I’m in one of those very few places where I can openly praise Jesus with other people without feeling judged, have active prayer, and recharge for the week ahead. But what I feel like isn’t talked about enough is denominational prejudice. Let me give you… Read More Denominational Prejudice Is Hurting Our Relationships
As a student who is often sitting at her desk or on transit, I’m not exactly flexible. Even reaching my toes is a feat (or feet – ha, you catch the pun?).
