Hello, friends! I forgot how hard it is to just blog! Without second thoughts, 1,000 re-writes, doubts, etc. But here I am-- I want to be present and authentic in this little space, so I'm just going to write. Sound good? Great.

For me, this season is one of change. Day by day, change is taking place in the hard choices I make and I see so much change ahead. The past months (I'm not even sure how many) have been somewhat of a dry patch for me spiritually. It's funny, because when I try to track the origin or cause, I draw a blank. It's been nothing earth shattering or gut wrenching, but rather something closer to apathy and disorientation. But despite the fog I've been in, I can see Jesus and His great big world getting a little bit closer and clearer. He is showing me who He is through His word and I'm tucking it into every corner of my brain. He's rooting me in His truth, both through my own study of it, and through teaching it to those younger than me. Co-leading a Bible study for middle school girls has really helped me to think about what I believe as I teach it to them. Often I wonder if I'm getting through to their curious, developing, and sometimes distracted minds, but then I realize that Jesus is the one who's going to get through to them and that's what matters. In all of this,  I'm seeing how dry patches only bring a more joyful spring shower. Praise the Lord!

As I look forward to this year, I can't help but get excited. I can't wait to start my design classes-- and I'm really thankful that I'm excited about my major. I'm excited for travels to new places. I'm excited to spread my wings (*cringe* because that sounds so cliche) in exciting new ways that are beginning to shape up. Mmmm yeah. I'm thankful for this big world, a life to live, Good News to tell, sunsets to chase, independence at my doorstep, and grace for each new day.

What are you excited about?


  1. The start of my business, the goodness He provides and new friends in the blogging world! :)

  2. This is so well-said and sweet Lindsey! I'm excited to be going to college this fall, and excited to see what God will do in my life this year. :)

  3. I am excited for YOU! I've been struggling with *such* similar things and to read this was a breath of fresh air. God has such great plans for you! Love you xxx

  4. YAYYY!!! I am so, so excited that you are writing for us again! I can't wait to see more pictures. :) and yes, it feels so good when the fog begins to clear. God is so good. Change can be so hard but I am finally beginning to see how He can bring good out of what we see as the worst things.
