My God Story

Guys. I have NEVER had it all together. Not before I was a Christian, and not since becoming one. I fall short every day. But if God can take the mess I was, the girl who thought she had zero value, then he can do the same for you. The amazing thing is, he longs…

40:40 Day 23

One perk of moving to Richmond was that my job had a branch twenty minutes away from my new home. One downside was that three people I really did not want to work with again had transferred down a year ago to open the store.  One manager was the most nit-picky, arrogant and condescending person I’d ever met,…

Moving stinks. Weeks of packing, cancelling utilities, cleaning..it’s one chore after another!

On the Move

Moving is FUN. Moving is JOYFUL. Moving is AN ADVENTURE. Did I mention I’m moving? I’ve been in Church Hill for five years now. I’ve loved it. I really have. However, the past year has been labeled “The One With the Crazy Roommates.” My past roommates have been either great friends or at least decent…
