Anxiety: The Monster Within Us

You’re driving down the highway headed home after work. Music is playing in the background but you can barely hear it—sounds fade to distant noise, as you slowly get lost in thought.

Suddenly you look over, and before you can stop or turn or swerve, a car is slamming into you and you go flying off the road, spinning and flipping and banging up against the concrete median. Next thing you know you’re in a hospital room. People surround you with flowers and cards a

Hi My Name is Tiffany, and I'm a Recovering Feminist

I used to be a feminist. It all started in college, where I saw how many girls were only there for the coveted MRS degree. I could clearly see how they were all attempting to find their worth in who they might marry instead of in who they might become.

Houston, We Have A Problem

Part One

Everybody has a personal hell. You know… that thing or place that drives them crazy, that person or group of people that makes them go mad—we all have it.

Reflection

So much happens in the course of a year. So much changes, so much grows. Much is molded, much falls off. It's beautiful and it's messy and sometimes you don't want to look, or you can't help but look back. It's an important part of life; that of reflection. Reflection helps us recognize changes that occurred and changes that need to still take place. It allows us to make the humbling statement: "Look what the Lord has done!"

If you live in the United States, I know what you’re probably thinking: “5 year high school reunion? That’s a thing?” Well, let me tell you…yes. Yes it is.
