13 Favorite Posts of 2013

I might be a little late on the best-of-the-year-list craze that usually takes place right before New Year's, but I think it's always a good time to look back and reflect.

Like any other year, 2013 had it's ups and downs. There were some wonderful moments where God showed his amazing faithfulness. There were also moments that tested my faith and my character. Together, the sum of these moments, both great and not-so-great, worked together for my good.

Scrolling through some of my old posts, I saw how many wonderful new friends I had made, all the life-changing experiences I was able to be a part of, and all the things God was/is teaching me.

Here are a few posts that stood out and helped me remember what an awesome and fun year 2013 was:


Want a crash course in patience? Drive home with a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts.


Fear is driving home knowing there is a spider hiding somewhere in your car…


The right people will lead you to the right things and the right places. The wrong people will lead you to the wrong things and the wrong places. Where are your friends taking you?


"Waiting until you're not afraid to do something is a great way to never do something. Do it afraid." - Jon Acuff


Know your limits. You can't make others leave a toxic relationship, break bad habits or change their thoughts. That's on them, not you. All you can do is speak the the truth in love and be available.

REMEMBER: When lending a hand to others, make sure it's you pulling them up; not them dragging you down.


Don't shout for a higher standard from others and then use their low standards to excuse compromising your own. Be an example. Stand apart.


"If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guid me." - Psalm 139:9-10


Bring pen & paper to church today. Take notes. Write your thoughts. Look for ways to apply. Never leave God's house w/o learning something!


Things Chick-Fil-A Should Do: All-Day Breakfast, Spicy Chicken Nuggets, and Chicken & Waffles.


Theological snobbery only breeds arrogance, creates division, feeds negativity and stunts growth & learning. Cut it out.


(SIDE NOTE: I got to see my amazing friend, Jasmyn, get baptized in 2013. Definitely one of my favorite moments of the year!)


I'm gonna be a Golden Panther! Again! God is GOOD! #FIU #Hired
