5 Things to Ask Yourself if You’re Waiting on God. 

  I have been loving my little devotional book ‘Daily Power’ by Craig Groeschel. (He’s the one who made that YouVersion bible app in case you were wondering) This past week though… The devotions have been on waiting. If you have read my blog post ‘Waiting on God: The Ultimate excuse’ or had a couple […]

A Prayer on the Highway

  My brother (one of them) hastily, but carefully parked his car on the edge of the highway, unlike the car that was perpendicular to oncoming traffic, half of it’s frame in one lane, and half in the other. There were no emergency vehicles in sight, the only flashing lights were from a huge semi […]

The Beauty & Danger of Religion

Someone pointed out something recently about my blog posts. “Charity, why are all your posts that mention Christianity so skeptic and negative about spiritual things?” If you know me, you know I’m a Christian, and I have a lot of pride in what I believe, in Jesus. He’s honestly the best thing that ever happened […]

Why Church Going isn’t All That

This Artist's Life | Why Church Going isn't all that

  Just because someone goes to church doesn’t mean they’re a Christian. No, duh.

Success: Measured By a Day

This post was supposed to be about success, but getting into it I realized how abstract the word success is. It means different things to different people.

Power of Prayer vs Power of God

I started this blog post over two weeks ago knowing exactly what to write. I soon found however, that my writings looked like the rantings of a prayer skeptic vs an analyzed argument. I’m not against prayer, but I have seen some people take it to a whole level that I can’t fully appreciate or […]

The Art of Arguing

  Ah yes, the holidays, so much to love. Christmas lights, carolers, hot cocoa, mistletoe hung where you can see, gifts to wrap, sitting in front of a crackling fire while stockings hang from the mantel filled with melting candies… and then there are things you look forward to but also kind of dread. Like […]

Mastering the Dating Game

This Artist's Life | Mastering the Dating Game

  I was 5 minutes early for once. My phone buzzed. He said he’d be 15 minutes late due to traffic. Well, I guess that’s D.C. for you? I looked at the clock again again. 15 past. The thought crossed my mind, how long should a girl wait before getting up and leaving? I’d never […]

“I’m Waiting on God” The Ultimate Excuse

I have heard countless sermons about waiting, here are a few things that are tagged as good things to wait for: Intervention in tough situations Direction for your life ‘Opening doors’ God’s ‘perfect’ timing Looking for ‘the one’ Job decisions Looking for a ‘sign’ “Have Patience. Keep on waiting.” Waiting…? I think this is ridiculous. […]

Do Hard Things

I stood on the edge of the mini cliffs where the waterfall cascaded into the natural pool below. ‘Only 25 feet’ might as well have been a mile for me. My hands started shaking, a knot was forming in my stomach, and the noise of the waterfall was drowned out by the sound of my […]
