F I V E // passion.

i am passionate about...

// Jesus //
i am a no-good, dirty, rotten sinner, and He still loves me. He willingly walked to His death for me. He died a cruel death. and on that third day, He walked out of the grave and defeated death. GLORY HALLELUJAH! as psalm 16:8-9 says, "i have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand. i shall not be shaken. therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure."

// photography //
every fiber of my being dances with excitement when i have a camera in hand - no matter if it's my iphone, dslr, or instax. photography is my love language; a passion that burns deep down in my soul and spills out of my fingertips. i just want to share the beauty that is all around us.

// blogging //
oh, mylanta. i love blogging. i love the blogging community. i love connecting with other ladies and sharing our hearts and lives. vulnerability is a beautiful thing. to share not only the good and happy, but the pain and hurt - that takes courage. i have met so many incredible ladies through blogging. they understand how it is awesome and weird and fun and crazy all at the same time. 

// working with the youth group at church // 
sometimes God has us do things in life that - at the time - seem crazy. when God put on my heart to start a youth ministry on wednesday nights at church, i will not lie - i questioned Him. i had no experience or training and no flippin' clue how to teach the Gospel to a bunch of teenagers. but God - He had a plan. [as He always does. and it's always better than what i muster up in my head.] in the last fourteen months, i have watched Him take nothing and make it into a beautiful something.  

// life //
quite a general term, but true nonetheless. life is crazy and beautiful and hard and lovely and messy and amazing. i'm passionate about a lot of things, i suppose - studying and learning from God's Word. wildflowers. good conversation. exploring. my family + friends. cultivating a life that is not only creative, but authentic - online and offline.

// coffee //
because duh.
