That’s A Wrap!

Thats A Wrap!  I graduated last week. It is still surreal. I wish I could say that I was one hundred percent ready to graduate, but I can’t. A big part of me wishes I could rewind time and relive the last nine months.  I don’t think there is much I would have done differently, except to hold on to each moment a little longer. The last nine months were so sweet. Through each moment of pain, triumph, and celebration I lived the season to its fullest. Today I have been really reflecting on God’s kindness. He is so kind and it never ceases to amaze me. I am still…

JH Ranch

Hello, it has been a quite a while since I have updated my blog. In an effort to stay present for the end of school, I decided to wait to write about everything that has been happening these past few weeks. I have officially graduated so I will be blogging more frequently. I really want to share about my JH Ranch ministry trip that I went on a few weeks ago. JH Ranch is a beautiful place in Etna, California. The Ranch runs programs through the summer that focus on instilling identity into teens and young adults, restoring family relationships, and teaching leadership skills. One of my favorite things I…

School, Dance, and Repeat

Hello! I wanted to pop on and give a quick update.  For the past three weeks, BSSM has been meeting in the Civic center again. Woohoo! I have enjoyed being inside in a climate controlled wonderland. I hope to never take for granted the blessing of meeting in a building, or going to school in person. Every day feels like the first day of school now that we are together again. I cant even describe the pure joy of seeing all of our speakers and dong worship in person.  With this new development, my dance time as greatly increased. Since there is set worship time and a stage again, I…

One Hundred and Fifty Thousand

Happy new year everybody! For my first post in the new year, I want to share a dream and promise God has given me.  This time last year I was at a conference called movement 2020. During this conference, I had a very real encounter with the Lord. I could feel His love. It brought a lot of relief and freedom to my life. During this encounter, He clearly told me that He was going to give me one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Crazy right?  But my God is not a small God, and it is well within His means to do so. Honestly, I dismissed it in the…

Bring In The Tents!

Hello all! I hope you are enjoying this holiday season. I get to go home in two weeks for Christmas and I am ecstatic!  In other news, the school has been able to meet outside in person a couple of times. I have enjoyed it so much. Being able to worship in a community setting and see my class mates face to face has been nice. The school made the announcement that we are getting big event tents! That way we will be able to meet rain or shine. Although the weather is consistently 65 and sunny right now. It will be fun to do some things for school in…

Mud

Mud. I felt is squish through my socks as I dragged my foot through the gravel. Wednesday night was raw in the best way possible. I was under a tent in the dark, worshipping Jesus in the mud. I love mud. It gets everywhere, even all over my dress as the hem dragged behind me. I danced in the mud and gravel with all my might, as praise was roared around me. I have never been happier to throw a pair of torn socks away. A stage. Saturday morning, I walked into Bethel’s sanctuary to dance for the first time. A five year dream was fulfilled that day. As the…

My schedule has been quite erratic, I am hoping to keep up with blogging a little more often now that some things have been solidified.  I have officially been accepted into the healing rooms dance team!
