I know, I know. I sound like a broken record harping on Moana again, but in my house this instant Disney classic lives on repeat as my five year old’s latest addiction. Still, as I explained in my last post, I believe there is more to Moana, and I’d like to delve a bit deeper into a hidden theme in this movie—and that is the theme of missions.
My heart sank as I walked back into my office. All of the dreams I’d allowed myself to conjure, those warm, weightless dreams that cause you to bubble over with excitement, were now lying around me, pointed shards of glass. That’s what happens when God says “No”. Continue reading “W.O.W.: When God Says NO”
Disney has done it again, folks! They have managed to create a stunning, new animated movie that has captured the hearts of children and parents alike.

Okay…so it really isn’t that new.
I got it in January. It was my birthday present–for my 30th birthday.
From the moment I planned this unique and awe-inspiring work of art (for that is what a tattoo is, a work of art on your skin), my fingers have been itching to tell you all about it. In fact, I’ve typed this post before, multiple times–but it seems as if my words can never fully do my heart justice. Continue reading “I Got a New Tattoo”
“The Atheist Meeting” is a true story, something that I, myself, have experienced alongside my husband and one of my closest friends. While I was completely terrified during this experience, in retrospect, I am so thankful that it happened.
