Word of Thought

I just finished binge watching 13 Reasons Why amongst the past 3 days. I have never connected to a fictional character in my entire life. I have never resonated with someone or a story or a show ever. Hannah Baker’s life in the show was my life at Appalachian State. The worst five and a half…

Beloved – Week 6: About That Purity Thing…

GET IT OUT: I failed and resisted to write on this (well 2 weeks ago’s) devotional. Sex – what a topic. The biggest sin to most Christians. Be honest? My honesty is that in general I hate sex. I do not get the pleasure that other people get from it. After being raped twice, that…

Rape is real. 

It’s official. I survived two years. I am still surviving. I’ve accepted the pain and hurt you had put me through. Whether if you still know or not.  I was having a good day, until my calendar, and time hop reminded me. Reminded me the actions of words I said to social media to avoid…

52 LISTS FOR HAPPINESS: LIST 6

If you know me, I am a sucker for self help books. I’ve read You are a Badass by Jen Sincero and 15 Things You Should Give Up to be Happy by Luminita D. Saviuc. They really push me to help me know my worth of being the happiest I can be and not to…

BeLoved eVotional – Week 2: Single as a Pringle

First things first, this is a 14 day devotional, but for my sake and how I work, I changed it into a weekly devotional. I believe it will help me in the long run to focus on one topic a week, plus then it will last longer as well.
