LIFE | Forty Weeks

Forty weeks is a loooooong time. Forty weeks is how long it takes (officially) to make a tiny human. I was pregnant for 40 weeks and two days. Forty weeks is also about as long as it’s been since my last post. Over the…

WEEKEND WORD | Daughters of the King

For He will command His angels concerning you, To guard you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11 When Malia and Sasha Obama walked the streets of New York this summer, they seemed to effortlessly blend in with the rest of New York; they ate…

WEEKLY WORD | Counting Our Blessings

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:…

WEEKLY WORD | Serve God. Serve Others.

Many Christians have foregone traditional denominations (e.g. Pentecostal, Baptist, Presbyterian, Adventist) in favor of the simple mantra Love God. Love Others, and that mantra really is the perfect way to think about our role in society as Christians. Think about it: the two commandments…

Women's Devotional // Praying For Yourself | The Feisty House

WEEKLY WORD | Praying for Yourself

I pray several times a day. You know, the quick “Lord, tell me what to say in this meeting” or “Please don’t make me miss this train” prayers. When I sit down to really pray, I start with thanking God for my blessings, and…

WEEKLY WORD | Practice Fearlessness

For God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and clarity of mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 I “fasted” from fear for Lent this year. Basically that meant that I paid careful attention to what my fears were and…

WEEKLY WORD | Were It Not for Grace

And God is able to make all grace overflow to you so that, because you have enough of everything, in every way, at all times, you will overflow in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8 Today is Resurrection Sunday. We celebrate God’s gift of…

WEEKLY WORD | Neglecting Our Purpose

It’s always a blessing when God speaks directly to us, whether it be through our circumstances, or a friend, through a pastor, or in that audible-but-not-audible voice He uses when He needs to get our attention, and no messenger but Himself will do. Yesterday…

Goodbye, Summer

Me wearing my favorite summer hairstyle…Marley twists! Summer isn’t “officially” over yet, but it may as well be for me. I’m already feeling the newness of Fall. Something about the cooler days and crisp nights make me feel so primed for fresh opportunities. It’s like…

Instagrammed // Counting My Blessings for #30BlessedDays

I haven’t done an “Instagrammed” post since this one in January, and I haven’t really put up a ton of photos of myself in the six months since then. Partly, the reason for this is because I don’t take good selfies (they’re only good…

Musings // On Lent and Fasting

Source   It’s Lent, but I’m not Catholic. So why do I bother fasting? This quote sums it up. I just started a blog management and content development business. I’m getting married in October. I’m running this blog in my spare time. I don’t…

Moving Day

I finally picked up and moved to NYC yesterday! Quentin and I drove up to New York and emptied an entire Uhaul van into my grandma’s apartment. So many things could have gone wrong that day, but the moving went pretty smoothly. God was…

Happy Holidays!

I took this photo in Brooklyn Heights last year, and I’m heading to NYC for Christmas early Sunday morning. I know New Yorkers hate when it snows in the city, but…I’m hoping to see a little something. I haven’t seen snow in about two…

Obama 2012 Fundraiser

  I had the fantastic opportunity to attend a fundraiser for President Obama last Friday. It was such an amazing experience. I live in Washington, D.C., I’ve lobbied Capitol Hill, and I’m definitely a policy wonk. The RNC and DNC were like the opening…
