Know Better, Do Better: Making the Abundant Life Accessible for All

Know Better, Do Better: Making the Abundant Life Accessible for All

Last week, I paused to listen and learn from a wide range of voices—specifically, Black voices. Some voices I listened to I know and trust; others were new to me.

It was a good, necessary pause that led me to this truth: when we know better, we must do better.

The abundant life Jesus came so that we may live is not for some, but all. When I believe there are systems in place that prevent certain people from achieving an abundant life, it is my responsibility to take action to make it right.

In this post, I am sharing how I feel stirred to move forward; to walk as Jesus walked and live as Jesus lived.

Let’s Hunt for Beauty, Together

Let’s Hunt for Beauty, Together

Lately, do your days need more peace? More pause? More beauty and reminders of God’s presence? Mine do. Will you join me in paying attention to how God is meeting you right where you are?

I’ll be seeking where beauty is showing up + the places I feel God’s presence and sharing it over on Instagram. I’d love for you to join me in hunting for the beauty we often miss when we aren’t paying attention.

Let’s hunt for beauty, together.

The Ending You Expect Isn’t Coming—and That’s Okay

The Ending You Expect Isn’t Coming—and That’s Okay

Shifting back to life as normal may be harder than we expect—at least it was for me as I embraced life after chemo.

I foresee a similar future when Coronavirus is finally halted. A period of time where we can take a collective deep breath.

We can push past all that has been or we can use it to light our path forward into the unknown future.

Grant Yourself Some Grace

Grant Yourself Some Grace

Grace. I’ve needed a lot of it lately. Grace for myself and grace to extend toward others.

Living in a culture that values achievement and believes more is better, I’ve noticed this show up amid quarantine—being encouraged to “make the most of this time” or use it as an opportunity to check off all the tasks on the to-do list.

While not necessarily bad, finding myself caught in the mentality to make the most of my quarantine, I realized I was lacking some much-needed grace—and that you might be too.
