My Journey to Pregnancy

Obviously, it’s been a while since I’ve checked in with you guys. I knew that I wanted to take a small break after the wedding, but if you’ve been following my Instagram or Facebook account, then I’m sure you’re pretty much up-to-speed on how drastically my life has changed since then. If you haven’t been keeping up, then here goes! Today, marks my sixth month of pregnancy with my first child!

I guess you can say that he was sort of like that one person that we all know who will say anything to anyone, regardless of how uncomfortable it makes them feel. That person will tell the truth without holding back. That person was Kanye. Continue reading “I Miss the Old Kanye”

No Struggle? No Progress.

It’s selfish of us to believe that God will speak to you and you only every Sunday that you step into the sanctuary, but I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older that the message isn’t always meant specifically for me. Sometimes God gives us messages to pass along to the people in our lives or strangers that we spark up a conversation with in the coffee shop. Continue reading “No Struggle? No Progress.”
