Lets talk about pride.

7.5.2020 Dad, If I think about it, it was quite fitting returning home from Denmark the day before the fourth.

5.29.2020 Dear friends, I have very much enjoyed being intentional about lingering with the Lord since my last message to you. His Word truly brings life to my soul, a mirror to my heart and clarity to my thoughts. I am continually amazed in the ways He manifests Himself and how truly we ought to... Continue Reading →

Burn me beautiful.

5.3.2020 Dear dad, I was insulted by Jesus today. I didn’t hear a voice or a sign or anything like that. I was merely reading the Bible. Merely, is how I often look at reading Scripture.
