For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30 Broken. Broken. Broken. We have all been broken. Born into a devastated world, products of sin. … Read More

I’m Not What I Was

I wish you could have seen me, all those years ago. But then again, for your own sake I pray you didn’t see me back then.

Oh, but God

I admittedly haven’t been as transparent online as I used to be. My blogging and podcasting have dwindled in recent months and social media posting is following close by.

On the outside, it may not look like anything special, but the beauty I’ve encountered, the sheer joy of the Lord I’ve felt this past month is undeniable.

Stories of Redemption

As I sat in the Christmas Eve’s Eve service tonight at my church, I was struck with a moment of clarity and awe as I pondered the dear people sitting in the row with me.
