I just wanted to let you know
I talked to God last night.
He didn’t say much,
And neither did I.
But what words we did say
Gave me such small hope,
That even a twice prodigal son
Can still find a way home.
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!
Hello everyone! :)

Please check out
Your support and prayers fuels my ministry! Please check frequently for updates on my journey in ministry! I’m very excited about this!!
Please be patient with me while I try to get this off the ground :)
Prodigal: An Animation
This song and animation is so incredible. True art! I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the story of the prodigal son, because it’s so relatable. This is really beautiful because it takes the story and makes it about a girl. Incredible! Please watch and share!
this is no small order ya’ll let’s be real.
whoever said being a Christian was easy….was lying.
I really like the way this is worded :)
I’m gonna just live my life and let God take care of the details.
Sounds very cliche, but for real.
I don’t think I’ve ever REALLY let myself go entirely. When I try to micromanage everything in my life I usually ruin it and make things far more complicated than they need to be. Frankly I’m tired and ready to be free of the drama my life has been in the past. The endless extreme highs and lows. Life doesn’t need to be this way. So it finally donned on me…well maybe I really should do what I’ve been claiming to do all along: give it to GOD!
So I’m just gonna live. I’m gonna do my best as the woman I am and the woman I want to be. If I’m caught up in Him and all that He has in store for me I can only expect the best things right?
I’m not gonna push anything, look for anything, I’m just gonna pull a Beatles and LET IT BE!
If God wants to place a man in my life, by all means, but I’m just gonna be chillin’ here. If God decides to surprise me and send me to a convent (and boy oh boy would that be a surprise), I’ll be sitting here doing my thang.
Right now I can only be satisfied and happy with what I have. It doesn’t make sense to ask for any more or wish I had something I don’t. It makes my life an unhappy one and I don’t wanna be unhappy any longer.
So um yeah.
National Organization for Women [NOW] put the Little Sisters of the Poor on their “Dirty 100” list. Megyn kelly denounces it.
This was so spot on! I am so proud of Megyn Kelly! She made me even prouder to be a Catholic woman! way to stand for truth!
This article is incredible!
I was really honored to be able to speak tonight a at my grandparents’ church!! This flyer makes me look quite official!! :-D #Blessed #faith #testimony #womanofGod
…people say I have a problem with it.
And well yes that might be true. I came out of the womb kicking and screaming, because despite being 10 days late I wasn’t ready in my own mind to be thrown out into the world. I’ve been kicking and screaming my way through life ever since …I suppose you could say.
I have a habit of going right simply because I was instructed to go left.
Like the late James Dean, I fancy myself to be a rebel without a cause (hence my blog name…among other reasons).
I think the truth of the matter above all else is this: I value my freedom (of both speech & action) as well as my God-given free will above anything else in life. I don’t trust people who tell me what to do, because frankly the only person I believe anyone has to answer to is God. And honestly how can anyone be sure of whats best for me if they don’t walk in my shoes? It’s quite rational really.
When it comes to people in positions of authority…I often wonder how they could fancy themselves to be anything better than what I am. We are all the same, all fallen creatures, all children of one Divine Being who lives outside of time and space. Obedience to anyone other than God in my opinion is slavery. I will be a slave to no one.
Most people that claim to be “bosses” or “managers” don’t take the time to earn my trust or respect, it’s either naturally assumed or demanded. This isn’t the right way to go about anything. I will never respond to demands.
I live by a certain code of rebellion.
I live by my own rules.
This rant is now over.
Thanks for listening/reading.
I always find it a bit odd when I observe the images people conjure up of Jesus Christ.
It’s like we’re reading two entirely different Bibles at times.
The world has fallen for this portrait of a caucasian, tender-hearted, pushover with an unusual love for bright colored clothing. [Jesus was a poor Jew…]
This isn’t quite the vision that comes to mind when I read the Scriptures. Jesus knew the truth and he let it set Him free - fully human and fully divine, He walked as one among us.
The Jesus I praise was/is an unconventional, controversial, rebellious badass with serious balls. He was point blank, frank, blunt even. Unafraid to call it like He saw it. He turned tables - literally. Often times He would just call people out for what they were - religious hypocrites, close minded, and racist (take the story of the good Samaritan for example). Sure He had a soft spot for the underdog, but that didn’t make Him a wimp by any means.
Jesus was a full blood Jew in the royal line of King David (the badass who killed Goliath). His fingers were probably callused, His skin dark and worn from years of hot carpentry work in Israel’s harsh climate. He most likely wore humble garments that were far from white (and not clean by today’s standards) and His hair probably wasn’t kept.
My Jesus was a radical revolutionary. One might even call Him a hippie of sorts - living by a message of peace, hope and equality for all of God’s creation. So where exactly the modern mainstream image of Jesus originated from I can’t seem to figure out. When people speak of Jesus, sometimes I have to stifle a laugh. I’m sure from up in Heaven at the right hand of the Father, Jesus chuckles a little bit too.
Perhaps we need to rediscover the Scriptures and remember our fearless and bold Savior. A man who was tender enough to welcome children into His arms, yet firm enough to turn the whole world upside down, bringing people to their knees. He wasn’t afraid to turn the other cheek, but He certainly wasn’t afraid to let His voice be heard either.
This is the Man-God that early Christians were willing to suffer extreme torture and executions for at the hands of the Romans.
Clearly this God, messiah, prophet, teacher, Lord, savior is unconventional.
Part of me can’t help but paint this picture in my mind of Jesus with two bold fingers up in the face of the nagging pharisees.
…but that’s just me…and I’m weird.
I suppose the beauty and appeal of Jesus Christ is the fact that He is the Savior of all for all. There are no boundaries or limits to His love and mercy. It’s just hardcore 24/7 lovin’. He can be whatever we want Him to be because He wants our relationship to be personal and intimate.
So whether your faith is catered to the common caucasian Jesus of Western pop culture, or my rugged and radical one, the point essentially is this: Jesus does love you individually with a fiercely unconventional and passionate love. And that I hope is something we can all agree on. :)
