The Colors of Hope

Experiencing and expressing pain is always vulnerable, but you know what? Experiencing and expressing joy is vulnerable too. I’m so glad God is with us for both. Could it be we feel overwhelmed and filled with unrest because we are afraid to rejoice? I’m glad we don’t have to feel brave to bravely open our hearts to the joy, hope, and healing of God.

We can open up.

A Gentle Reminder for You

This world is loud. The noise is invasive. And sometimes we get sucked into the hype. We forget we don’t have to do all the things, or be what people tell us to be, or share everything, or market our lifestyle, or be popular, or be loud about everything.

We can be us.

And we can do so without pride, pomp, or circumstance.

Announcing July’s Poetry Theme!

July’s poetry theme is R E S E T! There was a wide range of topics that spoke to you, so how do I combine restoration, rejoicing, and renewal with sunflowers and feeling shy when growing up? I actually don’t think it’s as hard as it first seems. I’ll be writing through the lens of flowers and personalities + lacing things together with truth.

I believe this month is going to be artistic and beautiful in a special sort of way.

We will put words to our dreams, fears, goals, hopes & work through the insecurities of growth as we ultimately choose to stay brave and continue resetting, getting back up, and beginning again.
