My 2017 word of the year is brave. For most of the year, I didn’t feel very brave. I felt very boring, very un-brave. But sometimes bravery isn’t in the big moments but the little one, like telling yourself to have a good positive day while battling depression, like taking a sick day to self … More 100 Days to Brave
In case you haven’t seen my bible shelf, I’m all about the Beautiful Word Collection, from their bibles, to devotionals and even a coloring book. The latest addition to my shelf is the Beautiful Word for Christmas Devotional.

I awkwardly picked this one out to read if I’m going to be honest. I’m hesitant with theological books for a few reasons, 9 times out of 10 they are over my head.

I love short stories, maybe it’s because of my short attention span but I love how people are able to tell a well developed story, truth or made up in a concise way. I also love traveling. And I love a good adventure with some deep perspective.
