God’s Plan: God Does Not Waste

God’s Plan: God Does Not Waste

During a time of trial and suffering, the old adage (or some variation of) “it’s all part of God’s plan” is typically thrown around by Christians. “I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, but it’s all part of God’s plan.”  This has never sat well with me.

5 Bible Verses That Helped Shape My Life

5 Bible Verses That Helped Shape My Life

One of my goals for 2018 is to blog about my faith more consistently. I mean, it is half of my blog name after all and, ya know, basically what my life revolves around and stuff. However, this topic is one of the more challenging topics for me. It’s so controversial, I’m not super educated about the Bible, and there’s so much that is open to interpretation.

I’m gonna be straight with you – I never thought I would be someone that would hail diet and exercise as a life changer, and I say that because of my past experiences with it. My Past Experience with Diet and Exercise I’ve always struggled with my weight and have attempted to lose weight several times through out my life, and I never saw any results. In fact, I would gain weight. I put on 20 pounds right before my wedding when trying to lose weight. It was baffling and frustrating and no one had answers. And if I learned […]
