The past couple months I have become ever increasingly aware of my need for God’s truth(His word) in life.
His Word is that which sustains and gives life.
We feed off words, whether the words of our friends, family, media, foes, or God.
I realize my need for God’s truth to change me from the inside out daily.
I have spent so much of my life believing the lies of the enemy and others on who I am and how to live life. I have so many areas in my life that need God’s healing words.
In order to replace the lies you must fill your heart and mind with His Truth.
Take time filling up on His word so you are able to weigh every other voice that tries to speak into you.
Don’t let darkness fester at your mind and heart any longer. Come before God in complete honesty and let the light of His truth shine in you.
You will never regret the times spent reading,meditating on, and applying His word. I promise!
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Falling for you has been so inopportune but I wouldn’t change it.
The past seven years have been a journey of tears, laughter, hope, healing, pressing through, prayer, dreaming, and falling in love with my heavenly Father.
When I was twelve the dream to go and minister to the people of Los Angeles, CA was birthed in me. To say that was a good time for me would be a lie. I was in the midst of my parents divorce, insecurities, brokenness, but some how God saw my brokenness as the perfect place to plant this dream. He gave me hope, light, love, and has been the source of this dream from the beginning.
I have had my moments of impatience and doubt along the way but God’s grace and love for me has always brought me back to a place of faith, hope, and love.
God has continually reaffirmed and watered this dream to reach out to the broken and hurting people in L.A.
I am amazed by God and his love to choose a broken 12 year old girl to have such a big dream. This dream is bigger than me, God-sized definitely!
In the past 3 months I have prayed, applied, and got accepted to The Dream Center’s Leadership School in the heart of Los Angeles. From my phone call interviews, to emails, and reading up on everything I could about them I feel like I have finally found a place with the same heart beat as mine for L.A. One that is serving, reaching out and doing everything possibly to help the needy, broken people in Los Angeles and show them the love of God not just through words but through actions.
I have the blessing of getting to go visit for their preview weekend next Wednesday-Monday and to say I am excited would be an understatement! With 3 months til school starts, $6,000+ to raise and 2 months before my first $600 is due and not a penny raised yet, I am trusting God to come through. My heart is hopeful.
I ask you all to continue joining me in prayer for this next adventure and if you would be willing to donate to my fund, big or small, everything helps!
Thank you to everyone and their encouragement, love, and support in seeing this dream come to life!!
I don’t wonder anymore what I’ll tell God when I go to heaven, when we sit in the chairs under the tree, outside the city…….. I’ll tell these things to God, and he’ll laugh, I think, and he’ll remind me of the parts I forgot, the parts that were his favorite. We’ll sit and remember my story together, and then he’ll stand and put his arms around me and say, “well done,” and that he liked my story.
And my soul won’t be thirsty anymore.
