Goodbye 32, Hello 33

I’m writing this post on Christmas Eve, but when it goes live, I’ll be 33. 32 is my favorite number, so I knew heading into this past birthday year, I’d mature a little more emotionally and intellectually, deepen in my faith, and explore the world a little further. I’ve loved most moments of 32, and…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Behold Your King

I love the Lauren Daigle song “Behold”. Any Christmas song that speaks about waiting for something long desired speaks volumes to my heart. I normally make Takeaway Tuesday prints with Scripture, but I’ve made an exception for the month of December. I hope this image reminds you that Emmanuel, meaning God with us, loves you…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Psalm 107:1

I always think of November as a month to reflect on all that I am thankful for. Let’s give thanks especially to God, for His steadfast love that endures forever. Oh how I need this encouragement. Click here for this free print.

Takeaway Tuesdays: Romans 8:38-39

As a gal who knows and loves Jesus, I am acutely aware of the grace I’ve received. However, I am far from perfect, and my shortcomings present themselves- sometimes glaringly, sometimes subtly. I need God’s truth, through His word, to remind me that NOTHING can separate me from the love of Jesus Christ. I am…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Hebrews 13:2

I love Fall, ya’ll. Sweaters, boots, pumpkin baked goodies. Tea and coffee galore. Dinner with friends. As I’m thinking about Fall, and how it begins on Friday, I am prone to think about gatherings. Fall is the quintessential time of year to gather in our homes, for it naturally hosts holidays such as Thanksgiving. This…

My Top 5 Tips to Paying Off Debt

Friends, I’ve got to be honest. I love school, perhaps a little too much. There’s just something about putting my nose in a book, writing an essay, or taking exams. Ya’ll, if I could be a professional student, I would do just that! Unfortunately, school costs bucks. Lots and lots of bucks. I graduated from…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Proverbs 16:3

There’s a lot of “newness” going on in my nuclear family’s lives, specifically in the work department. All the men in my family (Pops, Luke, and Jordan) are all starting new job ventures within the month. I am thinking and praying this verse over them all as they remember that ultimately, our job on Earth…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Romans 12:12

I just finished She Reads Truth‘s Romans study in print form. It was beautiful, and the book of Romans truly is one of my favorite books in all the Bible. Romans packs a lot of punch, but my favorite verses in Romans encourage Christians. Don’t give up hope- keep pressing forward. Paul knew life isn’t…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Psalm 34:8

I don’t know about you, but summertime in Oregon means LOTS of fresh produce. I love picking fruit from the plentiful trees, plucking vegetables from their vine. It is a time of celebration: from seedling, to mature fruit. Summer reminds me to slow down, enjoy God’s goodness, and praise him! I’ve created a print to…

Takeaway Tuesday: Exodus 33:18

I just listened to Annie Down’s podcast That Sounds Fun. The specific episode I finished had guest John Mark Comer, who is a Portland pastor/author. I so enjoyed this episode and loved how he shared about millennials (given I am one of those peeps), the post-modern church, Portland, and the like. One of my big…
