Sage Synopsis v. 5 + Meet Rachael






//T H O U G H T S 

I'm still feeling so full from the Influence Conference last weekend. God has definitely been moving in my heart. It was great to finally connect IN PERSON with all of the lovely women I've known for years via the internet! 

We have had some exciting things starting to happen for our church lately and I'm so excited to see what the future holds. I know I'm being vague, but if you could please pray for us I would be forever grateful. In the meantime, can I insert a shameless plug for you to follow us on IG?! 

If you didn't notice on my instagram, my best friend welcomed a little boy into the world last Thursday and I seriously can't get enough of him. Let me tell you, it's really great when your friends do all the hard work of raising children and you just get to go over and hold the baby for a few hours while mom and dad sleep. Win, win- right?!

I shared one of my favorite posts on studying the bible over on In Due Time this week! Bible study is so important and something I can always use help with!  

Over a year ago, I shared a VERY personal post about purity and waiting. I shared it again on Twitter the other day and got some amazing feedback. Such an encouragement!

Craft coffee in the back-country?! YOU KNOW I'M ALL ABOUT THIS. Thanks, Outside.

You know I love Relevant Magazine. This post about the faith of millennials caught my attention this week. One excerpt stated: "According to David Kinnaman, we have good reason to think the millennials who are Christians claim a deeper, more rooted faith than Christians of previous generations." Definitely worth a read.

Right now I'm listening to Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan and OH MY GOSH AMAZING. It's a memoir about the author's experience with psychosis and it's SO fascinating. I love reading about mental illness and addiction (probably because that's what I'm in school for).

Emily shared this video and oh my GOSH, my heart! Such wisdom in a little package.

Well... I'm from Arizona so this post over on Shane's blog made me miss home so much!


I can so relate to Casey's thoughts in this post right now. I really admire her for doing what's best for her.
