the pursuit of hope

the pursuit of hope

Hope has been a concept I’ve clung to for as long as I can remember – it’s what pulled me through the hardest of times. I really felt like this is a post that needed to be shared with the holidays coming up. I know there are a lot of people I am close to (and those that I don’t know at all) that have had a challenging year, and I know the Christmas season may not be filled with as much joy as usual. I don’t know if this will resonate with anyone, but as I write this post, know my heart has been broken with those who feel beaten down this season – I don’t know every situation, but God does and I can’t emphasize enough that He sees you exactly where you are.

gift guide for him

gift guide for him

okay, raise your hand if you have as hard of a time as I do trying to shop for your dad or boyfriend. I need to know I’m not alone in this struggle lol. I tried to include some not-so-obvious or off-the-top-of-my-head kind of gifts like video games and what not – I think we all know that usually ends up being on the top of your man’s christmas list. I tried to bring you guys something a little bit different, if for no other reason than to prompt you to think of something outside the box. uncommongood.com is a great place to find some unique gifts! this post includes affiliate links, meaning, at no cost to you, I will earn commission if you click through and make a purchase.
