I lay on the floor in the middle of a school cafeteria  and my heart met my Marmee for the first time. “Hello Holy Spirit. I’m Terah. Who are you?” I … More So This is Love

By the third week in PA with no success in the job search, I wasn’t nervous or worried, per se, but I was questioning whether I had heard God right about what type of job I should pursue. Maybe this time He’s not going to give me the desires of my heart? Maybe this time … More Life is Wonderful

My King-Lover

As mentioned in the previous post, moving states away from my beloved family and MN peeps has been more bearable than expected. I’ve actually been enjoying myself.
