If You Can Grow Through It, You Can Learn From It

We all go through life and have our fair share of difficulties and come ups. I for one had a much harder time with coping with many of my difficulties in life.

When God Steps In... | Reflection

Around this very same time last year in 2017, I discovered that I was 5 weeks pregnant. I for one had no clue that I was either. In fact, one of my co-workers told me that I didn't seem like my jolly-ole-self

We Talk, But We Aren’t Officially Dating | What to Do?

I will say that I am very open to giving advice to anyone who truly wants to receive it. When I say, “receive it”, I mean with open arms.

The Benefits of Keeping an Audio Journal

Have you ever heard of audio journaling? I sure did back in September of 2016. I was in search of another way to vent than using pen and paper and just talking to someone. I wanted to keep a record of how I truly was experiencing my deepest emotions. As a writer, I can protest to sometimes not being able to write out how I may feel.
