Welcome to My Blog About Living Life Authentically

I run a Christian blog about finding yourself, discovering how to utilize your God-given talents and passions, mental health (you can have Jesus and a therapist, too), and navigating this crazy world while growing closer to God.

    I’m a planner, and once I make a plan, I see it through. I grew up always knowing that one day I wanted to be a teacher. I did a small research project in my 8th grade social studies class and decided where I was going to attend college.  In high school, I participated in… Read more

BUT days like today, I have the thought, “Maybe I should stay.” Today, several children decided they trusted me enough to give me hugs as… Read more

  1. What you have wrote shows strength and wisdom. To step up and take control of your life shows your strength. You look at the past and show what you experience and how to only move forward with the knowledge you gained.
