Rest Is Strength

I had big hopes for November 1st. There is something powerful to me about starting afresh at the beginning of a new month or a new year. The last of my wedding season has come to an end and it’s been a long sprint/marathon since I started my new job. Fall has been busy and…

Thankful for My Tribe

I was raised by a tribe of women. My mom beautifully modeled sacrificial friendship for me from a very young age and there wasn’t a time that I can remember where there weren’t at least two moms and a whole herd of kids gathered for everything. I adored my childhood. And I largely believe it…

Your Hype Girl

Here for the courage. Here for the growth. Here for the fun. Here for it all. I’m passionate about health and clean living, but I’m not trying to be a wellness blogger. I’m passionate about exercise, but I’m not a fitness influencer. I’m passionate about Jesus and speaking to others about His Truth, but I’m not pursuing being…
