On #NothingNewYear & Interior Poverty
My name is Eunice and It’s been 8 months and 3 weeks since my last purchase. Well, there was this one time in February…where I slipped up and bought a new dress from Old Navy. I brought it home only to realize it was a maternity dress so…jokes on me. But other than this one … Continue reading
I don’t think this summer could have flown by any faster! I got engaged and this, of course, led to lots of celebrations.

To control speech is to recover its sacredness, to understand that sometimes the words of an innocent ‘joke,’ spoken without thinking, can have disastrous results, can be the ‘last … Continue reading
Living Prayerfully: When you don’t feel like it
5 weeks ago, we started our Living Prayerfully Series. I had wild plans to dedicate myself to hours of prayer time with the Lord in the mornings and well, it just hasn’t happened. I also had plans to finish my last post of the series on a high note; plans to share all the crazy … Continue reading
Living Prayerfully: On contemplation and falling madly in love!
Hi peanut butter lovers, I’m just going to launch right into it… “Why should it be difficult to fall in love with God?” …Why do we have to inquire about how to pray?
