This is NOT ‘Gospel’

I’ve been thinking a lot about perspective lately, about the ways in which we perceive the world around us and the ways in which we are perceived. We live in a culture that is obsessed with putting their “best” foot forward; we are inundated with phrases like “Fake it till you make it!” and Instagram photos with #nofilter that still look posed and pristine. In a space that is so focused on the image you project, where people throw around the term “personal brand” as if we need to sell ourselves in the same way we might sell a jacket, … Continue reading This is NOT ‘Gospel’

On Christmas Day 2014, Micah proposed to me, and sent us on the most incredible, challenging, life-changing, surprising expedition of our lives so far. It started us on a life-long journey together, yes, but the year that followed that sweet proposal was a year that in and of itself was a teeth clenching, overwhelming, exciting ride. 2015 revolved around missing each other more than we ever could have imagined, more immigration paperwork than we knew existed, transition, wedding planning, picking up roots, getting married, starting … Continue reading On The Move…
