The Power in Being Heard By: Savannah Locke

I started going to therapy after realizing that thing my cousin did to me as a child was sexual abuse and the repercussions were resounding in my life a decade later. I don’t know how the brain works or why memories resurfaced during a summer abroad trip in England, but they did, so I began

Raising Our Perspective On Breakthrough By: Maureé Sullivan

I remember the December of 2016 like it was yesterday. Five months prior to that time, I had just graduated from college with a fashion business degree. I had dreams of doing “great things”- not necessarily sure what those things were at the time, but I knew that if I kept walking in the right

The Why Behind the What

Follow my blog with Bloglovin For the last four years I’ve been a full-time photographer…those are words I never thought I would say. I get asked a lot how I got started, and honestly–I feel like that’s the best question to ask someone–Why did you start doing what you’re doing? Photography for me has been

Movement For Your Soul By: Kendall Young

She walks into the studio averting her eyes from the mirror stretching across the front of the room. Dipping her chin she glances discreetly at her companions for the next 60 minutes.

Fear Drowns in Light

In a few short weeks I will rejoin the ranks of America’s workforce. I’ve spent the better part of the last two and a half years serving as a missionary with my husband in the postage stamp sized country of Malawi, in Southern Africa. This fall we took a quick little jaunt over to the Philippines,

There are moments I wish they were more clearly established: like on the train, when I’m sitting between a man whose hands and face are covered in cheesy Pringles as he licks the powder out of the

Will You Have Me?

When I was first asked to write for this blog, I immediately felt excitement, coupled with a twinge of apprehension. I felt excited, because I absolutely love writing, especially when I know it isn’t going to be graded. (Wait… this isn’t going to be graded, is it?) And I felt apprehensive, because, aside from grad

The Steadiness of Faith

I was revisited today by an illustration I heard years ago about a ship and a train. My pastor was sharing about living by faith, and illustrated his thought by contrasting the experience of traveling somewhere on a ship versus on a train. As most of us have discovered, when you’re on a train the feeling underneath your feet is very

The Risky Business of Vulnerability

Vulnerability. Let’s just let that word hang in the air for a moment. I’m sure this word brings up different feelings and thoughts for each of us. We have all had different experiences with it, good and bad I’m sure. There is nothing like moving to a new place with new people, new job, new church…ok,
