The Manger of My Heart: The Season of Advent

Sunday Is Coming!

It seems like every year the holidays roll around faster than last. As someone who loves to decorate and enjoy every holiday to the fullest, I feel like I am constantly playing catch up with the calendar! So it didn’t come as a surprise when I realized that it is nearly Easter and I haven’t […]

Why Church Is So Important

Recently I conducted a poll on my Instagram asking my followers if they attended church, and why or why not. Out of 79 votes, 56 said yes while 23 voted they did not attend. Overall, I was glad to see that the majority of people voted that they do attend a church! I asked the […]
