Mid-term week in college is no joke. Especially when your teachers spread out midterms to cover two weeks. It is safe to say that this week has brought a multitude of challenges, both school wise and personally. I had two exams today, one being an American history mid-term. I was frazzled and stressed getting ready for … More Reckless Love

This year, I decided to cleanse myself of social media. While I chose to stay on Facebook, … More Lead Me To The Cross
While my mind and heart have been in a million different places lately, I have felt called and constantly nudged by God to write. About what you say? I have no idea, but I do not say no to the Lord.

It’s not like an episode of Mean Girls, we are not consumed with drama, and there are no “cat fights.” Rather, attending an all-girls high school is the best thing that has ever happened … More Dearest SJA
