God sent me to Asia in April on a mission trip but before going, He told me to fast. It was a liquid fast and low-sugar. When God asked me to do this kind of fast in spiritual preparation for my trip, I was actually quite stoked. Just me and God!

God is good, Princesses. We made it to three years at TAYP. 🙂 I don’t have much to say (shocking!) except, thank you for reading and being part of this journey. You are truly a miracle. I love that you are alive. Keep seeking Jesus with all of your beautiful life. Till the next chapter,…
I wrote the letter below a few days ago because God has been speaking to me recently of surrender. I love to think my life is really my life, but as He has been reminding me, I am not my own. This contract is my way of re-surrendering my life to Christ. I wanted to…
Since I was in middle school, I’ve had a secret desire to start my own bible study. I loved the idea of girls coming together, reading together, and sharing their lives with one another.
