Faith, Trust, and [Lots of Struggles]

"What does your faith mean to you?" A friend of mine asked me this question about a month ago and it now weighs on my heart and won't leave me alone. I think this simple question is something I've been learning how to answer all semester. It may seem like nothing, but I find it profound. [...]


Thoughts about this book…

I recently read a book titled He's Just Not That Into You, the inspiration for one of my favorite movies. I read this book based on a strong recommendation from my best friend; "this book will change your life", she told me. So I breezed through this self-help book in about 3 days. My first [...]
