Diary Entry #16 – Overcoming my Fear of Public Speaking!

February 2, 2017

Hey everyone, I wanted to give a brief update of what’s been going on with me lately. I feel like this year, God is bringing me into another level of my calling. Specifically, the area of public speaking. To be honest, this is something I have been running away from for years. I have tried to escape that place of influence for several reasons. #1… I never thought I was worthy enough to speak… I thought, “who am I? I…

Diary Entry #15 – When the Dreamer Forgets How to Dream…

January 20, 2017

When I became serious about my walk with Christ, I laid all my dreams, plans, and desires at the Father’s feet. I recall the exact day… I spent hours crafting the perfect vision board with cutouts of my dream wedding, career, life, etc. I presented that dream board to God, and like a genie in a bottle, I insisted by “faith” that He fulfill all my requests. The next morning, I remember waking up and feeling a heavy pressure come…

Diary Entry #14 – The Entertainment Industry

January 12, 2017

My life is literally changing overnight… things are happening so fast and all I know to do is cling to God in this moment. As of recent, my husband and I have agreed to both go into the entertainment industry. This is not something I asked for, nor is it something I wanted… yet my heart genuinely feels called to the mission field set before us. This territory is dark, yet I am called to be a light. To take on…

Diary Entry #12 – My Dream About Heaven!!!

January 1, 2017

Wow!!! What a way to start off the New Year! As a lot of you may know… I’m a dreamer. I’ve always heard about people who have had dreams or close encounters with heaven or hell, and I always wondered what that was like. Last year, I even prayed to God a couple times to give me a dream about heaven, but it never happened. Well, I woke up balling tears this morning, January 1st, 2017, because the Lord answered my…

Diary Entry #11 – Getting Ready for 2017!

December 29, 2016

I woke up early today… and that alone was something to celebrate. I’ve had one of those weeks where I would not want Jesus to pop-in unexpectedly and “rapture” the church. He would find me distracted and doing nothing. I haven’t felt like myself… from waking up late, to loosing track of my responsibilities, eating without restraint, and neglecting time with the Lord, I am all out of whack. Ya’ll pray for me! I feel like we all have those moments…

Diary Entry #10 – Picking Up Where I Left Off

December 22, 2016

Hey everyone, So I just wanted to share a mini-update of what’s going on in my life as of now… Today during my prayer time, I asked the Lord what He would have for me to do in the coming season, as 2016 comes to an end. As you have probably already read from one of my other diary entries, my life has simplified A LOT after shutting down my business in obedience to the Holy Spirit. Sometimes I wake…

Diary Entry #9 – Why I Stopped Being Ambitious

December 17, 2016

The other night my husband asked me what I wanted out of life… my response, “I have everything I want…” What more could a girl ask for? My days are not perfect and I don’t want to sound braggadocios but God has blessed me with my little family and my choice career of being a writer and stay-at-home mommy… all at the tender age of 23. Words cannot express the overwhelm of gratitude I feel because I know many would love to be…

Diary Entry #8 – Being OK with Being Me

December 13, 2016

I noticed something today… the enemy will try to plant negative thoughts in my head to throw little jabs at my self-esteem. If I’m passive and don’t take action immediately to cast down those thoughts, I will find myself in a discouraging place. The enemy will whisper things in my mind like, “you’re too ‘spiritual’–you’re too deep. No one will be able to relate to you…” or while I’m browsing beauty videos on youtube he’ll whisper things like, “you’re so…

Diary Entry #7 – I’m getting tested! – Challenging the World’s Standard

December 7, 2016

Hey everyone! So I want to share with you the spiritual test I’ve been going through lately… I was convicted when the Holy Spirit revealed to me how “independent” I’ve become. Instead of depending on the Holy Spirit’s leading in every single area in my life… I’ve more so leaned towards following the world’s standard or just going with my own feelings. What I didn’t know is  how much God actually cares about every single detail of my life… not…

Diary Entry #6 – My End Time Dreams

December 4, 2016

The atmosphere is heavy… can you sense it? I can tell when there is a shifting… I can see the impending judgement upon our nation. There is a war going on in the spirit realm. For the past 4 weeks or so I have been having dreams like crazy about the end times, spirit realm, etc. God is speaking… but are we listening? The bible says in Acts 2:17-18 – “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my…

Diary Entry #5 – When you feel like God has forgotten you…

December 3, 2016

Today I began my Christmas shopping and I couldn’t help but pile my cart with gifts for Evey. While shopping, I was so thoughtful of my purchases. I wanted to get things that she would love, that she could use over time, and that would add value to her life. I have never felt this kind of love, until I became a mommy. Then this verse came to my head: “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts…

Diary Entry #4 – Spirits are Real!

December 1, 2016

Today was an amazing day. My husband was off from work so we got to spend some quality time with each other and also got to fellowship with some like-minded believers at our church’s marriage bible study! Yet the best part of my day was how it all ended. As some of you may know, from reading my previous diary entries, I have been going through a lot of internal struggles. I’ve dealt with feelings on insecurity, inferiority, fear, etc. and…

Diary Entry #3 – When You Don’t Feel Like You’re Enough

November 30, 2016

Today I had a lot of “free time”…so I took my little Evey for a ride and we stayed over a friend’s house all day while Chris was at work. A couple of months ago, my life looked totally different. I was always busy, overbooked, and overwhelmed. Now that I’m not, I feel so out of place. The rush of everyday life was almost like a drug to me, a way of escape. So now that the Lord has taken…

Diary Entry #2 – The Truth About my Life

November 29, 2016

It’s 1:55am in the morning. I am soothed by the pitter-patter of the rain brushing against our apartment walls and the illumination from the christmas tree lights that’s drifted it’s way through the cracks of our bedroom door. Beside me, my precious gifts sleep in silence and tranquillity.  I thank God for every heartbeat that passes as they breath in and out the midnight air. I am forever thankful. This night, I recounted some truths as I thoughtfully reviewed my day, my life, my world.…

Diary Entry #1 – Sunday Blues

November 28, 2016

Can I be real with ya’ll? I did not want to go to church today! I had to force myself out of that bed because I know that this fight is not physical, it’s spiritual. So I made it there… and lugged Evey in her carseat along with my purse and her baby bag inside. That girl is sooo big these days, thank God for growth!! (trying to be positive) Anyway, I was there, but not really. As soon as…

Introduction: My Diary – The Blog Series

Hey everyone, I want to try a new thing on here where I can just be transparent about my life struggles and triumphs, what I’m going through in that moment, and also share what’s keeping me encouraged and helping me get through! I want to use this as a way to exercise my writing muscle and get more consistent with my blog. I am hoping that you will leave me feedback and that I can potentially start online conversations, almost like…
