We Are Our Biggest Critics

I'm going to get straight into it! SHOOT. How true is this statement though? "We are our biggest critic"  Sadly, I think this statement is especially true for women. We are so hard on ourselves.  Personally, I know that at times I care way too much what someone else thinks of my hair one day... Continue Reading →

5 Tips to Become A Morning Person

Now we all know the saying, "The early bird gets the worm." right? I'm a firm believer in this statement. Maybe not waking up at the butt crack of dawn though. Recently this topic has come up in many of my conversations. Friends, co-workers, family members explaining to me that they aren't morning people. Well,... Continue Reading →

The Year is Up.

I don't know where to start with summarizing my journey in Australia. This year has passed in the blink of an eye! I think back to my first church service I attended at Hillsong; sitting by no one I knew (that's okay though when you're an extrovert) and my jaw dropped when worship started. It...

I've lived in... Continue Reading →

Aussie's call vacation "holiday". So, this Christmas I went home on holiday for a month and a half. This month and a half has been very relaxing and fun! To paint you a little picture, I have gotten to sleep in my full size warm cozy bed, I went hiking with my mom in the... Continue Reading →

We’re Half Way There!

Well that's a wrap. My first semester at HILC is complete! What a great one it's been. From crying myself to sleep the first three nights upon arriving, killing countless coach roaches in the house, dance circles with our trainers (teachers), to face timing my family almost EVERYDAY, becoming ridiculously close to my amazing roommate,...

God Speaks… When I Listen

Before I get into it, look at this! Holy cow. This is the view when walking over the harbor bridge. (No not the bridge climb lol). Just the pedestrian pathway. I am going to get vulnerable real fast whether you like it or not! Ever since I arrived in Australia I have battled with the desire... Continue Reading →

A Home Body

Have you ever been away on vacation? Most of us have sometime in our lives. My favorite part of the vacation is the traveling toward home. Just reminiscing all the fun memories you've just created. Then you fianlly reach home. That step into your front door and smelling your house scent. Awwwhhh that's the best!... Continue Reading →
