Discussions on true happiness and how the little things can all add up to one great big thing.
The gluten-free life isn’t always easy, especially when you’re craving some serious comfort food. Like Mac n Cheese. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!
If I am so grateful for God loving me wholeheartedly, just exactly as I am right now…how important is it that I do the same to those around me?
This is a post about relying on faith when job-hunting, and is hopefully relatable to recent college graduates.
This is a blog post about graduation and starting your career.
These cake pops will definitely be my go-to gluten free treat for future parties, events, and every day occasions… they were a hit!
I stood at the pulpit of my parent’s home ward, staring into a sea of people and seeing only a few faces. I was the last speaker for my mom’s funeral service, something I actually took joy in. Two weeks later I attended church services at my student Young Single Adult ward. I was broken, hurt, confused, scared out of my mind, and feeling cut off.
This year it started in November, as far as I can remember.
A break from chemo, but hardly a break from the fight.
Our regular cocktails weren’t giving a good enough buzz
Shhh, not that kind of cocktail-no need to call the fuzz.
I’m a pretty cautious person in general. I always wear my seat belt, I carry pepper spray and I always check my backseat when getting into the car. It was natural for me to glance in my rear view mirror before opening my door. I bet you saw me do a double take, when I realized you and your friend were leaning against the car, staring and waiting.
A sense of purpose, strength, an honor divine.
With furrowed brow and knowing eyes,
Each step of your life carefully thought out.
It’s there for you, your destined route.
You will never measure up if you’re constantly basing your ‘standards’ off of someone else. You are you, and everything good and bad that comes with it. No one else in the world is exactly like you,
When God made me, I think his hand slipped with his bottle of ‘ground temper’ and he ran out of ‘extract of patience.’ For instance, I have recently noticed I have a severe case of road rage. No, it’s seriously going to get me shot one day.
For the love of everything people, when it comes to public restrooms, if the door doesn’t move easily…it’s for good reason!
I could never ever in my life deny that God lives. He lives, he loves us, he knows us, and he is here to help us. It is my belief that when we left our Father in heaven to come to Earth and carry out his plan that he made us a few promises. Of those promises, I believe he promised a great life. He never promised a life with-out trials, but he promised us a great life indeed.
One of my closest friends in the whole wide world is an absolutely brilliant poet. After begging her to read me one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever heard, (which she wrote), I asked why she wrote poetry.
When all is still and quiet,
When there’s hardly any light,
I lay with the comfort of my friend, the keeper of the night.
That first day of my internship, I went to work expecting a situation like my old job. Now that I’ve established myself and gotten into the swing of things, I love my new job. I’m already learning so much and can’t wait for what the future holds.
Tonight I want to talk about risks. What is a risk anyway? To me, a risk is straying from the norm, pushing the envelope, and saying adios to your comfort zone.
Stop faking it. Be genuine human beings. Stand up for what you believe in. Quit caring so much about others and take the time to care for yourself. In reality, by caring for yourself and telling the truth, you’re taking better care of them anyways.
