Take Time For Yourself

Being stuck in my dorm room for the past two days has given me time to self reflect. I’m a big believer that God will slow you down when you need it the most. For the past month I’ve been ripping and running here, there, and everywhere in between, I’ve had speaking engagements, opportunities to […]

Who’s your Author?

There is something extremely humbling about turning your life over to God.

Got Faith?

   Have you ever had those times where something pops into your mind out of the blue, and then you can’t shake it for days or maybe even weeks to come? A song, a quote, a movie, anything? A few weeks ago this happened to me. A Bible verse popped into my mind so randomly […]

Growing Apart

Sometimes I’m asked why I don’t hang with certain people anymore… My reasoning? You can’t possibly begin to see the potential God has given you while you’re hanging with people who don’t want to see you GROW or become successful. The Bible even says “Come out from among them…” (2 Conrinthians 6:17) When you stop spending […]
