I am random, ever-changing, ever-learning and ever-evolving.
This shall reflect that. 

A Letter to My Best Friend’s Groom

She’s my gift. A gift I’m giving to you. In the 24 years we’ve known each other, never, before last year, have we, or have we had to, put any other person before each other. Sure, we have parents and siblings, but it’s all the same, they are no different or no more important to us than each other. But, marriage changes that. Marriage changes everything.

Helpless, But Not Hopeless

Faith is believing that because you are lead by His Spirit, what you pray is what He desires. Faith is believing that because you pray God has a chance to use you to do His work. Faith is believing that God can and He will, because you had the faith to believe.

A Fight for Control

When I came to the knowledge that I hadn’t surrendered any part of my life to the person I claimed as Savior, I was stunned. But, I’m even more overwhelmed by the fact that He’s stuck by me, kept calling me and waited for me to hold Him the way He’s held me. Yes, it is incredibly hard to have your beliefs crushed, especially if it’s seemingly overnight, after years and years of emotional buildup. But, it’s even harder to live your life so consumed with your own desires, only to realize, at the end, the purest, truest desire is to be full, and the only thing that fills is Christ.

Falling in Love with Kevin❤️

So, you can imagine the task of a woman like me attempting to write her own vows. A woman who never considered doing such a thing. A woman who almost eloped, and also previously would have never considered doing such a thing. A woman who married a man she only dated for a  f e w  months, and needless to say, never in a million years, before she said yes, would have considered doing such a thing. A woman like me. Woah. Who is she?

I’m Making a Human 😳

In the black of an almost winter morning, I woke up on my living room floor. Having to remind myself that the cause of sleep outside of our bed was back pain that only a hard floor can relieve, I simultaneously scrambled to make sure I didn’t oversleep. My body woke itself up, as if it was anticipating something.

Harry Potter, Inspector Gadget & HotWheels

You’re a genius, and that’s no exaggeration of the word. I’m unsure if it’s the dictionary reading, the crossword puzzles or the 100 games of solitaire per day, but whatever it is, it’s real. You are intelligent, masterfully articulate, uncommonly decisive and shamelessly authentic.

Good News

I was feeling like the work I was doing was beneath me, beneath my experience, beneath my education; which, both, have always defined “me.” And on some (read: most) days that took away from my gratefulness that I had THREE (extremely manageable) jobs. The idea of more consumed me, and if I’m being real, still does.

Cosmetology & God's Sovereignty

So, when I feel like I'm losing it, and when I feel like I have not a clue what to do next, I do the only thing there is to do right now. I trust that God has got it all under control and I take the next client that walks into DryBar - White Plains.

For Christ's Sake

My prayer is for more Christians around the world to discover, more and more each day, what Christianity means, and that it changes their minds and hearts. My prayer is for more non-believers around the world to discover, more and more each day, what Christianity means, and that it changes their minds and hearts.

Epiphany Fellowship

E v e r y minister, elder, person who put their lips to a mic was PHENOMENAL. They EACH spoke eloquently and with conviction, clearly studied, not only their text, but the whole Gospel, they were relatable and smart and thorough, they pointed e v e r y t h i n g to Jesus Christ! Every song the choir and praise team sang was about Jesus, it was a healthy mix of new school stuff I'd never heard of about sin being great, but Jesus being greater, and Great is Thy Faithfulness.  INCREDIBLE!

What if Your Gifts Don't Make Sense?

I AM GIFTED. I am gifted to do hair. I am gifted to write. EQUALLY. The two don't make sense in my mind, but I am convinced they do not have to. God has a plan for my gifts, He wouldn't have trusted them both with me otherwise. It's not easy and I promise I am confused, but I have a sketch of a plan and I am trusting a good, all-knowing God.

Wait A Minute.... Nope!

When Kevin and I decided to get married, our relationship and engagement wasn't the only shocker. The equally big (or bigger) shocker was the confusion of when either of us ended our previous relationships. Kevin was in a very public relationship for over a year. I was in a semi-private relationship for over 5. Both of us, as followers of each other on social media, knew the other had a significant other, but neither knew the details.
