I was in my philosophy class the other day. It was missions week, and numerous different camp directors had flocked to the campus of Bob Jones University to pitch their camps to countless starry-eyed college kids willing to commit to another three months without sleep. Our teacher invited one of these camp directors to speak […]

A Guide to Doing Devotions

Posted Posted in Advice, Girl's Guide To, Happiness, Life, Relationships, Time Management

Sometimes, doing devotions can be hard. I should know, I grew up reading the KJV. Here are some common problems we face when doing (or not doing) devotions. It seems like, no matter the time, there’s always some other MORE PRESSING MATTER that we could be attending to rather than doing devotions. But don’t allow the fact that you […]

Believe it or not, before I went to Colorado I had never flown on an airplane before. EVER. #Homeschooled I didn’t know what to expect. Honestly, I didn’t think I would like it. When my mom boarded the plane in front of me, she turned around for a second with a goofy grin. Her eyes were literally sparkling, holding some kind of secret that only people who LOVE riding on airplanes know about. “Touch the outside of the plan before you board,” she suggested. “You’re touching something that is goin
