Tonight, I came home from spending the weekend celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday in our college town to my mom and brother filling out scholarship applications. My brother is a senior in high school this year, and he’s signed to play baseball next year at a university that also just so happens to be THE school … Continue reading “I write so that others might be inspired.”
You guys. I’m finally student teaching and I’m not even exhausted (yet)! Okay, so it’s only day two and my co-teacher and I are REALLY hoping for the first snow day of the semester tomorrow (prayers please). But still. I have a desk and a key to the classroom and a badge and access to … Continue reading To My Teachers

I decided to put on some serious … Continue reading Love Has Won (Not A Post About Gay Marriage)
Philippians 4:6 says this: “The Lord is at hand: do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” I’ve been really anxious lately, and I’ve neglected my blog and writing in general. I’m anxious about the future of my sorority. I’m … Continue reading Jesus Freak
Proverbs 9:9 says, “Instruct the wise, and they will be even wiser. Teach the righteous, and they will learn even more.” This semester, I am (basically) a teacher. I’m scared and overwhelmed, but I’m also ready. I have four beautiful baby Phis in my New Member Education Program, I’m teaching the fifth book of … Continue reading To Be Wise
