I rarely feel beautiful and I often struggle with deep insecurities just like most humans I know... but I’m learning to love who I am and who I’m becoming in Christ!
I’ve finally come to this peaceful place in my life where I’m not constantly wishing, wondering, or waiting for a Jesus-loving, humble guy with integrity and drive to see my value and choose me. I’ve wasted too much time with that. I’m done missing out on all the great things that could be occupying my time and thoughts!
Hear my heart - I’ve not turned into some bitter cynic, I promise. I will always desire to know that love and I’ll be praying for that man just in case he exists... but I’m not going to let those feelings distract me from living each day in step with Jesus. Every single moment holds opportunity to laugh and be generous and helpful and kind!
It feels so good to free myself from romantic expectations. If my life is filled with the joy of the Lord, some kingdom work, quality friendships, and a few adventures... then I know it will be a good full life - even if a husband and a family are never part of the picture.
I will still praise God because he is worthy
and he has already done enough for me.

I AM DEBT FREE!!! Thank you Jesus for helping me persevere and my church fam who literally bombarded me with the FPU message for all of 2017!
Never would have been possible without the amazing family that offered me housing or the good friends that gifted me a running vehicle!
IT FEELS SO GOOD!
I have some big plans coming up so it’s time to save save save!!
