A Blessing From a Pair of Shoes

Back in May, I was the recipient of a pair of shoes- a brand new pair of Reebok Nano 4.0s to be exact. I received them as a gift for working at the CrossFit Games Meridian Regional in Copenhagen, Denmark. They were special to me not only because they commemorated my time in Denmark, but […]

Purpose.

The small group that I lead with my friends, Cope and Lauryn, met for the first time this weekend. I gave the lesson this week about finding my purpose in life. I have included the discussion questions used in the group and would love to hear from you if you have something to share. I have […]

HOPE.

“Something is up here. Everyone is retreating,” read my Twitter feed. We had just left the biggest night of high school football in our area- Auburn High vs. Opelika High.

The Bargain

I wasn’t 100% honest about my testimony I shared last week. I left out one important detail- the bargain. Four years ago today, my family experienced a devastating loss. It was around 6 p.m. on a Thursday night, and I was sitting in the drive-thru of a local hibachi restaurant. My husband had friends in town […]

Praying for Dummies

As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently went through a transformative 21 Days of Prayer as a new churchgoer. I’ve said prayers before, but I wouldn’t say that I have ever prayed before. “God, get me through this workout!” doesn’t exactly count as praying. I really wasn’t sure how to pray. When I […]
