I was introduced to what human trafficking was when I was in sixth grade. My family went through the SOLD experience when it came to our church, shocked doesn’t begin to describe how I felt walking from room to room learning that there were girls and boys being sold as sex slaves.

We made it to Friday! Can’t believe how quickly this week went by, but I’m not complaining, it has been HOT and I cannot wait to spend some time this weekend poolside. As this is my second week of Friday Favorites I think it’s a little unfair to say this, however, these are my favorite […]

NINE OF 10 IS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL

On New Years I wrote and uploaded a blog post called “Awaiting 2018” and in that short post I poured my heart out about what direction my life was taking me and how hard waiting for what God had for me was. It was gut wrenching and emotional to write that and I remember feeling […]
