Speaking Spiritual

I consider myself a very spiritual person, and faith plays an important role in my life. I love speaking spiritual and discussing what I believe and how to see each day beyond the physical circumstances presented to us.

why I align faith and wellness

My path and vision for my content is to either share my faith and love of God, or share my passion for wellness and pursuing a truly balanced, holistic lifestyle. But who says you can’t have both? Or say that these two passions do not intersect or make sense to pursue together? At first glance, …

God rested. so should you.

Our modern society is all about going, moving forward, working hard, hustling every chance we get. Anything less than that isn’t doing enough, isn’t spending our time wisely, is wasting away the precious gift God grants us with each day and each breath…right? It’s about time to challenge that stringent connection between self-worth and daily …

how do we wield the power of prayer?

I have had my doubts and hesitations in the past. I’ve had dry spells where I would spend every day spiritually alone, not remembering or finding purpose in living any other way. Except I didn’t realize what I was missing. How incomplete I truly was without nurturing my relationship with God. How everything life was …

The season of Lent is coming to a close. An immensely important time of the Christian year is upon us, as well as the mix of emotions that come along with it.

Times where I only considered myself “spiritual” and didn’t have a great relationship with “religious.” I would consider myself the most grounded I’ve ever been in what I believe …

Amidst the overwhelming noise of social media, we aren’t just living our own lives anymore. We have an audience watching us, and we’re watching others on similar paths, and far too often that game turns into comparison. Jealousy. Envy. Emotions that require two entire Commandments to cover for all we may covet from our neighbors. …

clean up your act: true spiritual purity

If you have ever lived with me, you know I run a pretty well-oiled operation. I have very high standards for keeping my space very clean, devoid of clutter, and smelling nice and fresh. I don’t expect anything less than the best, and if that deters people away from me, I’ve come to not mind. …

slacking the sabbath? being christian without church

I love my faith. It’s a very important aspect of my life that is the foundation for all I do. I admit I’m not perfect at following every commandment and verse to a T. We’re all human, after all. But one thing I’m especially not great about doing, something that is integral to most religions …

da rule book: understanding Exodus

When reading through the Bible, sometimes we go against our better judgement and skim some passages. Until skimming turns into mindless skipping of entire chapters. I found myself doing this when reading the Book of Exodus. Since the origins of the Ten Commandments come from this second biblical text, I wanted to gain as much …
