My family and friends: it's plain and simple, I'm not the person I am without them. Even though there are many miles in between us, you all aren't far from my heart. … Continue reading Grateful.

Time. When having goals and callings, we think we can create timelines of when they'll be accomplished. We can work, we can pray, we can try to manifest all of our desires, but at the end of the day, it's all up to Him.

While my day today was pretty routine, last night's bedtime routine … Continue reading Not A Typical Monday
