Life Beyond Your Biggest Dreams

As I sat on the plane, staring out the window at the mounds of clouds, my eyes begin to fog up with tears. 

I was completely overwhelmed. One of my greatest desires is to travel the world, but I never thought it would happen so soon (that is without going into an excessive amount of debt). Here I was on a return flight from Australia, a trip completely ordained for me by God. Six months earlier my plan for July 2016 was to travel domestically to Washing D.C and Nashville but for a reason I could not understand, the Holy Spirit urged me not to. 

I'd saved so much vacation time from the previous year and desperately wanted to travel during the summer. I couldn't understand why God was telling me not to go

My Trip to Australia: Part 2

As promised, here is a full recap of my experience at Hillsong Conference Sydney. The conference was held at the Olympic Park (from the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games) which was about a 30-40 minute commute from Bondi.

Conference was three and half days, Tuesday evening through Friday evening. On the first night we commuted via train and after getting lost, arrived at the Olympic Park 2 hours later. 

The conference lasted from 9:30am-9:00pm with a 3 hour break from 3-6pm.  Speakers included Steven Furtick, Casey Treat, Erwin McManus, Carl Lentz, Christine Caine, and Brian and Bobbie Houston (Hillsong Senior Pastors).

Why You Don’t Have to be Qualified to be Used Greatly

Have you ever felt unsure or hesitant about something God told you to do? Have you ever found yourself thinking, “Why would He choose me for this role” or “How will I be able to complete this task?”

I’m there right now. I’m overwhelmed, anxious, and a bit terrified.

Over the last three years God has called me out of my comfort zone more than I like.  I’m naturally shy, not a lover of the spotlight, yet God has placed me in leadership roles at work and at church making it impossible for me to hide behind my insecurities.

Saying Goodbye the Best Year of My Life

In one week what has been the best year of my life will come to a beautiful end.  I’m sad to see it go, but I'm excited for what’s next. So I thought I’d give it a proper farewell and acknowledge all the wonderful lessons and memories this year gave me.

25 you've been amazing. From the very first day I felt it. You marked a new season in my life, a fresh start.  

This year I fell in love - with God, with myself, and the life I’ve been given. I discovered new passions, stopped chasing after a relationship status, and started chasing after my God-given purpose.
