Sick Over the Weekend || Trip in One Week

Well guys, this week went nothing like I had planned. I didn’t get much of anything done, and I got sick. Stomach bugs are not fun, just in case anyone is wondering. Though it did mean I got to watch a series that I’ve been wanting to see! That was fun. So, at the moment I am still working on my Camp story, trying to get it done really fast because one week from today, I leave for Colarado! Part of my family is going up to spend a week in Estes Park. It’s been ten years since I’ve been there, so I am super excited!! Even though I’ll be gone though, I’ve got posts scheduled out and I’ll be able to respond to comments. 

Are any of ya’ll going on trips soon? 
What is your favorite trip you’ve been on?

How Is It?

How is it 

That I can hate something 

And love it at the same time? 

 Storms are terrifying 

Yet they awaken something 

Deep inside of me 

That nothing else does

Darkness provides so many 

Scary possibilities 

But that’s also where

My soul finds peace 

Heights are breathtaking 

Yet somehow they make me 

Want to be more adventurous 

How is that?

Video with Jessica

Jessica, me and Julia. 


This is Jessica holding Annie (Though I liked to call the goat Rebel)

Julia, Rebekkah, Jessica and I.

Last month I had the pleasure of spending a week with two of my best friends. I got to spend a week with them at their home in January, but having them here in my house was amazing. We got to do a lot together, like getting lost at the capitol, playing laser tag, and watched a sick baby goat (We thought it was going to die, but it was a little rebel and lived! ;) ), we even got to do a photo shoot. 

When we were all dressed up for our photo shoot I was like "Hey Jess, could we make a video for my blog?" Being the great friend she is, she said yes. So the four of us marched into the woods, armed with a tripod, camera, and a whole lot of questions. We had to come up with the whole thing as we did it. After eleven takes, we ended up with enough material for our video. So here ya go, I hope y'all enjoy! (Prepare for a lot of awkwardness with us. We were not gifted with looking amazing on film. Though I think Jess did better then me.)

I'm sorry it's small, but you should be able to hit the button in the bottom right corner to make it full screen. 

While in the editing of the film I realized that we met in person in 2015, not 14. Thats one date debate we didn't have! ;) 

What did y'all think? Isn't Jessica awesome?? 
If you've got any questions drop them below, I would love to hear them!

He Is Here

Photo courtesy of
Christ died, giving up everything to come here and teach us how to live. He came to show us how much He was willing to go though for us. That He was even willing to go though a death far worse then any of ours will ever be because it wasn't just Him dying, He was taking the punishment for our sin with Him. Letting it separate Him from His father temporarily so that you and I could be with Him eternally. 

Then He rose from the grave, conquering death for all of us. When His followers came to the tomb that day, an angle told them "He is not here, He has resin!" 

The power those words hold is just incredible. God broke the chains of death, coming out of the grave so that we could be with Him. 

Then He sent His spirit to fill us so we could have a relationship with Him. 

I think one of the most amazing things about Easter for me is being able to know two that He is not in the grave anymore, He has resin. But He is here, in my soul, and He is never leaving.

He came because of His never failing, never ending, perfect love.

He is alive, and He is here.

What Darkness Holds

A little something I wrote the other night at 11:00 after everyone had gone to bed.

The darkness holds
So many unknowns
 Some of them are terrifying
For that’s where monsters are
Storms rage
And battles are fought
But that’s also where
Moonlight shines down
Fireflies flicker
Cricket’s chirp
Stars cover the sky
The galaxy reveals itself
Peace is found
Rest is taken
And all around
Even if there are monsters
They are nothing compared
To the majesty God provided
And the simple delights
He provided for us
So maybe the darkness holds
Our greatest treasures
