I’ve never experienced a church service that has actually impacted me and made me think after I left the four walls. I’m always the person who is zoned out probablyyy 85% of the time if I’m being totally honest 😅
Visiting churches here in Vacaville has been so impactful and has been truly such a cool experience. The churches we have visited have focused on grace, love, acceptance… something that is needed in today’s world. Churches that aren’t afraid to worship BOLDLY and raise their hands up. People here truly have the spirit of joy while in church. Though sacred, Christianity and church services don’t always have to be so serious and dry… it’s okay to be bold and super excited during worship + your church services.
This past week at church a message was preached that I have never heard before. It focused on how we are not bound under the Old Testament law anymore. Christians who focus so much on sin are oftentimes using manipulation to change members of churches. They used the example of the verse Psalm 42:1 “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.”
Though a beautiful verse, we live in the new. We don’t need to pant for the living God, we already have him. He lives within each of us and he loves us with so much grace and acceptance.
Jesus isn’t just a name in the old dusty book on your nightstand. He is true and He lives within each of us. His presence is always right there with us, we don’t have to beg and plead for Him to be close anymore. In this new season of marriage and it’s sacredness, I am so thankful for my new perspective of who Jesus is and the life He calls us to live.
I abandoned blogging for a LONG time. But what I never stopped doing was writing journal entries in the notes app on my phone. I stopped blogging about my faith because honestly it went through quite the dry spell lately. But with marriage and moving to a new city across the country, I realize how much I need Jesus and His apparent presence in my life. I know someone out there needs some Jesus in their life today too 🤍
Hi everyone, as you may have noticed I have not blogged in a while. I have had a ton of stuff going on in my life! I actually just got a new job as a receptionist. I am so happy and thankful for my job and I am loving it so much. I am in an awesome work environment and I am so thankful God has provided me with such an awesome place to work!
Also…. a big announcement!
Do you guys remember a few years ago about how I had started dating an awesome guy? Well he proposed! I am so thankful and so excited about this season of life and this season in my relationship.
I was looking at my Bible the other day and found a section where I had written about some of my main goals in life. My number one goal was to be a good wife someday. Now that I am getting closer to that phase of life, I feel so excited and honored that God has orchestrated this phase of life. I have been praying about it for literally years and I can’t wait to see how God uses me to benefit His kingdom!
Let’s talk more about my fiancé…
Bryce is such an awesome and Godly guy! Over the past few years, he has helped me become the person I am today. He is so encouraging and kind to me always. He is also super caring and sweet to me! Finally, he is my best friend. We have so much fun together and I can’t wait for a life with him!
I feel so thankful and blessed. I can’t wait to post more about my engagement and wedding planning!

Getting brand deals is one of the main aspirations people go for when creating an Instagram account. So, I am going to give you a few tips on how exactly to achieve getting a few brand deals on your account.
My first tip is to choose your niche, which helps you find brands accordingly! For example, if your niche is fashion, you should try to get the attention of fashion companies. Think of your account as being a marketing agency or a product in itself- an account where various brands and products can fit in seamlessly. For example- my account has a general blogging niche so I just did a brand deal with a company that sells online courses for blogging and making money as a social media influencer.
My second tip for getting brand deals is not being afraid to reach out to other brands! Don’t be afraid to send a DM- you have nothing to lose! Along with this, consider creating a website that discusses all of your experience with brand deals that includes your amount of followers and all of your social media platforms. This gives brands an idea of who you really are!
My third tip for getting brand deals is building a community. Follow other accounts that are in the same niche as you and engage with their content. This will encourage like-minded people to follow your account and truly enjoy the content you produce. This helps with brand deals because the engagement rate on your photos will be much higher than someone who buys their followers or attempts to follow thousands of people in order to gain more followers. Doing things the right way-even if you do not see the results as quickly as others.
