In high school, I would literally cry when I got a “bad grade” in school. And just to clarify, I’m not talking bad grades as in D’s or F’s, oh no, I’m talking anything BUT an A+. (Yeah, I was that kind of student…) Looking back now, I can’t believe how hard I was on myself. Looking back I laugh at that silly sixteen-year-old crying that she wouldn’t get into college because she got a B in Algebra. Looking back on that girl, that girl I used to be, has made me realize how far I’ve come. It wasn’t easy and it most definitely didn’t happen overnight, but since my sophomore year of high school I’ve learned to be gentler with myself. I’ve learned to accept my failures as an opportunity for growth, to trust in His plan over mine, and to know that as long as I did the absolute BEST I could with what I had, that was enough.Read More
Happy happy Wednesday my friends!

There’s just been a lot going on. But I’m so grateful for the bright and shining light at the end of the tunnel after this difficult season. God is good friends, and He has a beautiful plan for us all.Read More

He was a true gem. Anyway, I missed last week’s favorites round-up, so I’ve got a little extra goodness for you today!Read More

But God has a funny way of working sometimes, and today, He said, “Shannon, you’re going to write this instead. Save the makeup post for another day.” So…here we are.Read More
