Change is something I have a long history of avoiding. I like routine, predictability, and processes that I understand. Being able to control my situations and knowing what to expect gives me a sense of peace and empowerment.

What Wasn't Planned

When we moved into our house five years ago, I was pregnant with our second (and planned) daughter, Savannah. I felt like I could handle the adjustment since I had a plan and a to-do list to prove it. Savannah was sweet, and I was adjusting very nicely to having two kids. I was a stay-at-home mom (which was a dream I had while working, and of course, curated over the years with planning and dedication to this end goal).

Everything was going perfectly, just as I had planned. Then, when Savannah was just three months old, I found out I was pregnant with twins.

"I humbly believe that the songs we sing in worship have deep impacts on our understanding...the gems of these three songs give us language around Jesus’ great commandment, posturing us to better love God with our mind, heart, soul, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves."

“What difference does it make if I pray by prayer-walking or pray in my bathroom?” Prayer-walking will certainly have moments of discomfort or awkwardness...But God will engage your senses to make you more aware of the revival he wants to bring to the places you’re currently standing in.

"Numerous people are committed to me like family, and I am included in their families and celebrations. God has given me the security of knowing that I belong, I am loved, and I am accepted unconditionally."

Reaching friends, family, or co-workers may look very different after college. But there are some ways of living that translate well in showing Jesus to others no matter where we are in life.
