Glimpsing the Past

That day, when everything changed, when the years of confusion and sorrow were washed away, Jesus took my pain and replaced it with peace.

Seek & You Shall Find Him

I am completely blown away right now. It’s been a very long time since I owned a guitar and I’ve been wanting an acoustic of my own for some time now.

The summer is coming to a close and as my family and I move towards the school year, we’re preparing for some big changes. The new adventures that appear to be before us are both exciting and a little scary. And it’s got me feeling a bit heavy with the weight of everything on my shoulders. I have joy in my heart, but also a weariness from the journey I’ve walked … Read More
