Know Your True Worth

True worth can’t be seen, measured, or bought. It’s why popularity, status, titles, achievements, riches, and stuff still leave us striving for more. True worth comes from what God knows about you and not what people think of you. True worth is decided by God, your Designer. It is not determined by how much you’ve…

Mirror Mirror, I Don’t Like What I See

Ok, so this isn’t me in the mirror but this is my shadow/profile 😁. As warped as it looks, it isn’t far from how I see myself. You see, I have a pretty distorted view of myself. The image I see in the physical mirror and the mirror in my mind is often not what…

More Than a Number

I was doing fine until I saw the numbers. I knew I shouldn’t have gone there. But I did. You see, I had stepped onto the little balancing instrument which measures my worth. I gasped and strained my eyes to make sure I was seeing the right numbers. They were a smidget higher than I…

When You’re Too Much Yet Not Enough

I feel this way more often than not. It’s as if there are 2 personalities wrestling inside of me. One feels she is too much. The other thinks she is not enough. I think I’m too much of the undesirable and not enough of the desirable. Too much of who I don’t want to be…

I’d timidly muster up the courage to say, “Phu” as my classmates giggles and snickers. Kids can be cruel and adults aren’t kind either. My…

   I was perusing Instagram on Black Friday while sipping a Starbucks latte and for an instant, (okay, maybe a tad longer) I wished for the buffet of family, food, fun and festivities my eyes were taking in. My heart sagged. Self-pity lurched. I can feel envy rising in me. I caught myself wanting the…

Is Popularity a Big Deal?

Popularity. It’s overrated. Of course I didn’t think so in high school. I remember watching the popular girls from a distance and wishing they’d include me in their circles. They were so pretty and wore clothes I could only dream of owning. Their hair and make-up was spot on. I envied them. And secretly I…

Inadequate Me

Hey there! Missed you all last week as I was prepping for a retreat weekend with my 8th grade girls from church. I finally recouped from the three hours of sleep I got over two nights 🙃. I love getting extended one on one time with my middle school girls, whom I see every Sunday,…

Bare Beauty

Knowing God is key to liking your natural beauty.
