But I Am A Bad Christian

I shared the below post on Medium on February 1, before I had this space up and running so I wanted to share it on here too. Let me know what you think! _______ Man those are hard words to write but they are true- so overwhelmingly true. In the start of 2016, I decided…

Getting A Dog Changes Everything

And I mean that in the best and worst way. I know, I can practically hear the eye rolls from mothers with tiny humans but man being a dog mom is hard work. And no one warned me! At least when you have a baby people warn you about everything and have tons of advice…
