How Reading My Bible Changed My Life

I know every Christian looked at the title of this blog post and thought duhhhh, haha, allow me to explain. I grew up in church and reading my bible was just as routine as standing up for praise and worship or taking communion. But that’s all it was for me—routine. I committed my life to Christ when I was pretty young and sure I would crack open the bible if I was going through something and I felt like I needed a word, but it […]

5 Ways to Become the Best YOU

5 Ways to Become the Best You

Are you existing or are you living? It’s a question that really causes you to stop and reflect on past achievements, regrets, and assess your current situation to see just how invested you are in your own happiness. At the root of it, the real difference between the two (beside the connotation) has a lot to do with how you feel about yourself. Insecurity and self-doubt can prevent you from living the life that you deserve to live: a fulfilling one. Here are 5 ways […]

Choose Forgiveness

Forgiveness

The road to forgiveness is probably one of the most confusing and uncomfortable things we’ll face in life. Number one, because there’s no real marker to let us know when we’ve actually made it.

Catching Up With the Colvins

Beauty Find of the Month// Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes

Let me first start by saying that I’m a MAC girl. I love love love MAC’s makeup but let’s be real —it’s expensive. As a new stay-at-home mom, I’m always on the lookout for dupes and alternatives.
