Yes, we are spending more time watching Tiger King, reruns of Friends and Law & Order SVU than normal, but just because we’re working from home does not mean that while we’re home we always need to be working. I thought up until about 10 minutes ago, that because I’m young and have the bandwidth (no kids, no pets, very few responsibilities requiring my time … Continue reading A note to the young people, or whoever needs to hear it:
One thing I’ve been learning this week is how important it is to know your standards, set them high and surround yourself with people who will hold you to those standards as well as reaching for similar standards. When we don’t, we cheat ourselves. This made me think back to and appreciate all of the people who have held their own expectations high, whether for … Continue reading Holding High Standards
1 Thessalonians 5 v. 16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Lately I’ve felt so hard hearted; bitter towards having to get out of my comfort zone, annoyed when asked to do things that inconvenience me by the slightest. And moving home with the whole family hasn’t helped my hard heartedness … Continue reading A thankful heart
As I sat in church on this fine Easter Sunday, I felt the grace of God in a way I never had before. Yeah, I knew that I was forgiven and I was made whole and righteous through Jesus, but I hadn’t quite felt it. The lyrics to Reckless Love flashed upon the screen as worshipped, and I read them and understood them as I … Continue reading He is Risen
“Long nights and glory days, between the Alpines and Old King James, Yeah the better they look, the sweeter the kiss, The shots you don’t take the shots you gon’ miss… “Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers” – Brandon Lay On Thursday night, a local radio station hosted Jarrod Neimann and Brandon Lay for a concert in a Handy Park on Beale Street. I had heard them talking about the concert on KIX 106 … Continue reading You Had a Blue Jean Jacket and Burnt CDs..
Hey wassup hello, I'll start off with a little bit of an update of my life.. I just moved to Memphis, TN on Sunday to be the assistant field hockey coach at Rhodes College! I'm super pumped to be back in the game! My life has been kind of all over the place the past couple months, but I got to see a lot of … Continue reading Holy Sweat, Wholly Surrender
I’m back! It’s been a while since I last blogged but as I’ve been trekking across the country behind the wheel of a car or Penske truck I wanted to share my summer adventures with you, as well as the things I’ve seen,learned, and experienced on the road. First, I moved from Amherst, MA to the suburbs of Nashville, TN with the Fam. You could … Continue reading The Road Less Traveled
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?
Over the weekend God taught me a valuable lesson… After our game this weekend, I was really frustrated with myself because I was over-analyzing what felt like every decision I made in the game on Friday, in practice last week, and in every day life. I found myself criticizing every spoonful of ice cream I put in my mouth, every bad step I made when … Continue reading When Difficulty Strikes
