Can you believe this blog is less than a year old? The above photo was taken last winter (by my girl Haruka), when this blog was still just a thought and not something I felt I had the time, energy, or talent to really do. Oh how things can change!
I've been so encouraged by everyone who has reached out to me with support, advice, and above all love. I took a leap by starting this website and committing to being truly vulnerable with you. I can tell you it has been so, so worth it. From connecting with fellow writers during a digital writing intensive to meeting with social media friends in NYC coffee shops, I've been able to share more of my heart this year than any other year yet. And you've shared right back! You've given me bigger hopes and dreams, and I am excited to see what God has in store for each of us in 2016.
In the meantime, catch up on some of my most read posts of 2015 below. Feel free to send me a note if you want to chat. Cheers to 2016!
We are all always waiting for something. Waiting for a new job, waiting for a relationship, waiting for health and healing. I'm beginning to see that waiting is an act of utmost faith.
If someone asked, "Who are you?" what would you say? Answering that question was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Let's set aside the many titles, accomplishments, and possessions we carry and focus on our identity at the core.
Elise was the first person to reach out to me about sharing her story for my site. She and I talked for hours about her battle with lyme disease and how she's finding true joy in Christ alone. When you're done reading, head to her blog for even more.
The holidays and the new year can be really hard for some of us. I have totally been there! But there's a reason we can have great hope instead.
