hello 2019//lately list

hey there friends…wow can you believe January is almost already over?? i’m shook 😉

i’ve been thinking & praying & searching for my word for 2019. i think i found it. brave.

i recently heard these two verses that, wooowww, just really spoke to me:

“For I am the Lord your God
    who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
    I will help you.” -Isaiah 41:13

He has a plan for us, y’all. He is with us. He loves us. He is good to us.


  • making: smoothies. handwritten notes. little doodles on my notes.

  • reading: so much. most notable: Love Does by Bob Goff

  • looking: at bookstagrams. i kind of love them, that i even made my own.
  • playing: my Español worship playlist on spotify. always on repeat.
  • wasting: paper. i need to do better.
  • sewing: haha, um…i’m not qualified enough for this one.
  • wishing: for fresh blooming wildflowers
  • enjoying: intentional and encouraging conversations about Jesus with friends
  • waiting: for grad school to be over. haha tryingggg (barely) to enjoy it.
  • liking: my morning gym time (gasp, i know–who am i?) and 100 Days to Brave: Devotions for Unlocking Your Most Courageous Self by Annie Downs
  • wondering: why God made sunsets so beautiful
  • loving: Nala behaving better and more family time
  • hoping: that I’m honoring Jesus with my actions.
  • marveling: at how beautiful the little things are, like the sunrise on my way to work/school

  • giggling: at all the chick-fil-a memes and trey kennedy vids

hope you enjoyed the list. i first saw the idea from sydney, here.

also, UPDATE.

I went to NYC & back to Mèrida, MX this winter break. they were both magical experiences. i’m grateful the Lord let me go. here are just a few of my favorite pics from the trips:

one last thing, i ended 2018 on a really great note. my goal for the year was to be more intentional. i think this was definitely a challenge, but mannn the Lord used it to grow so many of my relationships with others. so with that being said here is a picture of my life group:

if you aren’t already in community, i encourage to get involved. it’s so important to have a group of believers to share with and do life (literally) with. i wouldn’t be a part of this group if i didn’t listen to God, take a step out of my comfort zone, and be intentional about seeking community. it’s life changing y’all. no joke.

praying 2019 is full of blessings and joy for ya.
