These past 4 years have gone by so much faster than I ever could’ve imagined. As I reminisce on our 7 hour bus ride home I can only help to look back and see the incredible ways that God worked in my life. People ask me why I chose UMass, and I simply don’t know. It’s weird to think that God orchestrated all of this … Continue reading You Called Me Out
What would you say if you were asked, “up to this point in your life, would you call yourself a follower of Jesus Christ? Why do you say that? Do you see evidence of your faith like in Luke 6:40? I came across this question today as I was reading a book called “Multiply” by Francis Chan. When I first read this question I skipped past … Continue reading Am I Following?

Having that mindset of stuffing the pain and hardship in a box makes it hard … Continue reading Vulnerablity
I’ve had some time to reflect on my time in Puerto since coming back to the states earlier this month. I miss it a lot. I feel like I’m at home there. It’s hard to put into words what you experience on a project like that. There’s so much community and it’s crazy to see how people’s love for Jesus really unites a group. Although … Continue reading Reflecting…
