here + now.
I love palm trees and college campuses (and working on a college campus surrounded by palm trees).☀️🌴❤️
There are a lot of unknowns in this life. And when the hypotheticals and the “what-ifs” start swirling through my brain (read: attacking with the vengeance of a thousand Trojan fighters), this truth is put on repeat: “We don’t have grace for that yet.” God gives grace, sufficient, beautiful, breathtaking grace, for right now. This moment. Today. We don’t have grace for hypotheticals, because God doesn’t live in the realm of what-ifs. But, because He changes not, He will give the grace necessary for us to survive all the days He leads us into. When the what-ifs become reality or when the curveballs come, the grace we need to follow Christ also comes. Yes, there are a lot of unknowns in this life. And all of them are fully known by the grace-giving, covenant-keeping God who fully knows us and provides everything we need for every circumstance He ordains for His highest glory and our deepest joy. Because of the cross, we can now rest and rejoice in the middle of unknowns. We don’t have grace for those yet, but we have Him, and He will hold us fast. ❤️
“My hope lives not because I am not a sinner, but because I am a sinner for whom Christ died; my trust is not that I am holy, but that being unholy, He is my righteousness. My faith rests not upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what Christ is, in what He has done, and in what He is now doing for me.” -Charles Spurgeon

COMING SOON: Girl’s and Women’s Conferences



PRAISE. I love conferences. I love going to them (shoutout to the two I’m going to with my bff in the next two months [this one] and [this one]), I love speaking at them, I love learning and absorbing “Gospel drippings” from others and I love getting to mix and mingle with amazing women (young and old alike) from all over the country (and/or world).

SO. If you live in the Paducah, Kentucky area and are a female, come to these conferences! I am SO excited to get to speak at both of them while also soaking in the Word with others. Would you join me?




Saturday, August 1
9 a.m – 2 p.m.

For any young ladies entering their freshman year of high school to those entering their freshman semester of college.

THEME: “What’s Next?”

One of my dear friends is coordinating this conference for high school-college freshmen and it is going to be amazing! There are so many stellar women who will be sharing and leading small groups and I cannot wait to speak on acceptance/identity and see what the day will bring. Did I mention this is FREE and lunch is included? Hollatcha girl.

Abundant Life Worship Center,

Conference Coordinator: Mariah Robinson

THEME: A Symposium on Biblical Womanhood in the 21st Century

Get excited, people. Author and speaker Trillia Newbell (read about that one time my bff and I went to her book release party here) is coming to town and it is going to be great. Biblical womanhood is a huge passion of mine and I cannot wait to hear Trillia and Molly Lockwood share their wisdom! Also that weekend my awesome pastor’s wife will be speaking on marriage and I get to briefly share on singleness. The Gospel + food + fellowship—what’s not to be excited about?!
