Prom Bucket List

What’s on your prom bucket list? What things have you always wanted to do for prom? (For example: to drive to prom in a limo, to order a custom-designed dress, or to have a date 😉 )

Question Life
March 3, 2017

Quite frankly, I didn’t get a post up Wednesday, because I was busy knocking a hole in the wall for a window. I’m currently coated in paint and caulk, and there’s dust everywhere! (Courtesy of my brother) Since we’re on the topic, what’s your least favorite chore? How do you make it more bearable (music,…

After reading how Louis L’amour kept a list of the books he read each year in Education of a Wandering Man, I decided to do the same, so today, I’m posting the list of books I read in 2016.   Your First 1,000 Copies (x2) by Tim Grahl The Virgin Way by Richard Branson Charity’s Cross by…

With permission of my friend, Madelyn Oney, I’ve been given the privilege to use her Instagram post on body image and beauty as today’s blog post. First of all, I have to applaud her courage and vulnerability in allowing me to repost this. I hope you girls find her example as inspiring as I did….

New Year's Resolutions God Faith
December 28, 2016

At the beginning of 2016, Get Closer to God was one of my many New Year’s Resolutions. It seems like if you can nurture a more intimate relationship with God, everything else will fall into place. “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” -Matthew…

road writing
December 15, 2016

Once upon a time, I wanted to be a writer. While this is true, this isn’t where my story begins. My story starts a bit further back. In the 2nd grade actually. (Also posted on: Lands Uncharted) When I was in the 2nd grade, being a writer had never crossed my mind. I simply devoured…

School, Life Lessons, Algebra
December 7, 2016

My end-of-semester essay prompt read: How has studying math enabled you to consider choices and consequences more fully this semester? And I was like: Whaaaaattt? How on earth is math supposed to teach you about anything other than graphs, geometry, algebra, etc? Since when do life lessons fall under math lessons? Math isn’t a favorite subject…

God Faith Love
November 30, 2016

Today, I’d like to share a few excerpts with you from the 2nd chapter in Hannah Duggan’s bible study, Dare Greatly. I don’t know about what you, but waiting grates on me. Waiting for anything–for my license, God, or the right guy. Before I dive ahead into my point, I’d like to share a passage in the…

Paper Reading
November 23, 2016

Before I was writing seriously and trying to get my own book published, I never considered the work that would go into the design of the book. When you look, there are so many different designs snuck into the corners of pages, options for page numbering, fonts, etc. One day, I went through the library pulling…

While I don’t have a chronic scheduling problem anymore, I still keep a very strict daily schedule, but you guys already know plenty about my schedule, so today I thought I’d get to know a bit more about yours. I’m going to leave some questions below, like I would in an interview, and you can…
