3 years ago I hiked my first Adirondack high peak. It was a dream come true. A challenge accepted. A check-off on the bucket list. Before that, I had decided I wanted to attempt the 46er challenge and hike all of the high peaks in the Adirondacks. This was not a part of my original … Continue reading A lesson in the high places.
When I first started writing on this blog, I had all these great plans and ambitions. I knew what I wanted to write and I knew how I wanted to say the things I was thinking.

The air was humid. The sky was the kind of cloudy that signifies a passing or looming storm. The gray, heaviness of the hour didn't appear to declare immediate action. It's the mountains.

As a Christian, I know that my loved ones that were saved are walking the golden streets of Heaven as they worship and praise God. For the ones whose … Continue reading When the loss is great.
The other day, I realized that God has called me to once again wait on Him. I feel as though I am always waiting on Him, yet there are moments where the wait is a much harder commitment. This time, I have been given the command to wait and watch God work through a situation … Continue reading Worship while you wait
If you have read any of my previous posts, you would know that fear has been a huge obstacle for me. Overcoming fear has been far from easy. It has required me to not just step out of my comfort zone but to give all of who I am to the Lord. In the past … Continue reading Taking a leap of faith
