During my time of living on a college campus, I lived with the same roommate. It was a great experience and I know that God clearly had a plan when He put us together. She and I got very close and I considered her a sister. We came from different worlds, yet by God's design, … Continue reading I was wrong: blinded by myself
I wrote a post about living life according to God's will for my life a while back. In that post, I talked about giving up all the hopes and dreams that I had. In fact, you could say that for the entire year of 2018, God was calling me to give up all the expectations, … Continue reading Dream Again

Hello, hello, hello! Where has the time gone??? I just had my last day of regular classes yesterday and today I am working on a couple of essays. While doing that, I was thinking, "I really need to discipline myself and commit to writing something every day." So, with that, I am doing just that. … Continue reading I’m Back … again … I promise!
