Contemplate the Lord’s Glory

“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18 This verse recently hit me. In particular, the part about “contemplating the Lord’s glory”. What does that even mean? Contemplate could also be…

Rest

Sitting here, I can’t seem to keep my eyes open. Rest. It is something I am so bad at so much of the time. But I know I need it. When I can feel the heaviness of my eyes in the middle of the afternoon. When I can’t read for more than 20 minutes without…

Is That You, God?

Sometimes I don’t know what to do. Sometimes I don’t know how to feel. Sometimes God leaves me on my knees, crying out “why?”. Sometimes life doesn’t make sense. The past couple weeks definitely haven’t made sense. It has been a massive rollercoaster of highs and lows, good and bad, beauty and brokenness. Let me backtrack…

Coming in Hot

My latest blog post on all the new happenings in my crazy, coogie sweater life.

Culture Matters

This idea of culture matters has become very real and relevant to me through my recent two-month trip to Guatemala with the Bridge Street Mission School. Hopefully this article can do the same for you. This article was originally posted on Poverty Cure’s website.   Why are some companies so beloved by their employees? Often…

Guatemala – Global Phase

As some of you may know, I have spent the past two months in Guatemala as part of the Global Phase of the Bridge Street Mission School. We got back on Wednesday, March 2nd. My two months in Guatemala have been some of the most eye-opening and formative time in my life. It was a…

BSMS Update!!

Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted! A ton has happened. Let’s see if I can remember it all. From November 15-21 we were in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We took a 15-passenger van rode-trip out to visit the YWAM base there and learn about what YWAM is. We joined them for their teaching…

A Month In

Well, it has been almost a month since Bridge Street Mission School (BSMS) started. I can’t believe that’s all it’s been because if feels more like a couple years with these weirdos. We literally share everything (ice-cream cone, clothes, just about anything you can imagine). This year for community engagement I’m doing Resurgence Plus, an after-school…

Already Family

Family. In the four days I’ve been at Bridge Street Mission School (BSMS) I feel like I’ve found a new family. It’s amazing that we already feel so close from such a short time!         We moved into the Lincoln (our dorm house) a week ago from today. Immediately I could tell this…

I Apologize

You’ve seen the picture. It’s a table with four chairs, but one chair has fallen over. The caption says, “2015 Michigan earthquake. We will rebuild.” I, possibly like you, was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed shortly after the 4.2 magnitude earthquake on Saturday. And as I was scrolling, I saw the picture I just described. When I…

The Fourth Person of the Trinity

That is what many make the Bible out to be. Although you may not audibly say it, many of us (including myself) have thought that at one time or another. But God intended us to use the Bible to grow closer to God, not to be worshiped as if it is at the same level…

How Christian Hip-Hop Must Develop

This is an article written by Grammy award-winning hip-hop artist Lecrae about how Christian Hip-Hop and Christian music in general needs to develop. It was originally published on May 21, 2012 and is titled Church Clothes – Purpose, Passion, Progression. It’s a bit lengthy but definitely worth the read. The truth is: God is still at…
