On Faith and life changes | Personal

Move to Chicago. Two Months.
Start all over in school. Two Months.

Life is changing oh, so quickly. It's exciting. But really scary. I know that the Lord has called me to a lifestyle that is not at all how I imagined. But...oh, is it good. I know that things are not turning out how I had thought or even hoped. But the truth is that this is becoming my hopes and this is becoming my dreams. The Lord has invited me in. For awhile, I think I was saying no. Because I was afraid. I was afraid to say yes to this brilliantly extravagant life He had for me. And eventually I reached a dead end. It was either this way or that way. And I picked this way. And I am so happy I did.

It's going to be beautiful and wonderful and exciting and new and fresh. I know that there will be times of despair. Maybe even doubt. But I can trust and hope in that I have been invited by the One and I have said yes. Yes to this brilliantly extravagant life that is unfolding before my very eyes.

Back in September, I chose to say yes to pursuing my buried dream of counseling. The gears started turning and I realized this has been it all along. Everything made sense and it was so beautiful to see everything in the past lead up to this point. God had been planning it all along and if I could have only seen it. Taking a leap of faith, I applied to Moody Bible Institute in Chicago to study Counseling. I really had only planned on studying photography (which I did and this Spring, I received my Certificate in Photography!) To my surprise (seriously, I was shocked!) I was accepted into MBI.

It still baffles me and I can't quite wrap my mind around it. But I am blessed. His plan is better.

Kevin || Portrait

Kevin (AKA KJdesign) is one of the most talented graphic designers I know. I met Kevin through my church and soon found out that he is a ridiculously talented graphic designer. This guy is going places! His style is innovative, inspiring and simply beautiful. Kevin is inspired by nature, so no better place to go than The Morton Arboretum. I love working with other creative people because they are willing to try anything! I am so excited for the projects Kevin and I will be collaborating on...keep your eyes open!

May in Instagrams || Personal

One month of summer is gone. What?! I've been done with classes for a whole month and it flew by. But there were a lot of adventures. Breakfast dates, tart baking, walks with Ellie, 1 mile everyday for 1 month, Starbucks happy hour, Sarah leaving for Cambodia, Mother's day, summer reading, inspiring chats, SO many flowers...

So blessed. May was great. Excited for June.
Road trips, weddings, summer nights are coming!
