Here’s to You

Dear Future Me…

Dear Future Me… I hope you start off reading this with pride in your heart and a skip in your step. You made it. You might not feel like you have yet, but you have. I prayed for you to get where you are. I dreamed, wished, chanted, screamed and went through a few tear-stained […]

What a title, eh? And somewhat confusing if you know me. The co-founder of a women’s ministry, an active member of a well-known spirit-filled megachurch, and a consistently pronounced Christian – and I’m writing about a…hangover? Yes. I’ve been trying for weeks to determine how I got here. And even as I write that, I […]
