Christians, Don’t be Afraid of Passover

Spiritually speaking, this week is pretty busy. For my family, it’s not really because of Palm Sunday, Good Friday, or even Easter, but because of three other holidays that are either glossed over or forgotten completely. I’m speaking of Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits. Just like with most holidays and not a lot of nearby family, weContinue reading “Christians, Don’t be Afraid of Passover”

Cross OVER THE THRESHOLD With Me

“In lipstick and hiking boots, Julie travels up the mountain to escape her life. What she doesn’t realize is that she’s about to discover a man who holds the power to transform her identity forever.” In my last post I wrote about my experience at my first writer’s conference. If you’d like to check it out, hereContinue reading “Cross OVER THE THRESHOLD With Me”

More than a Writing Conference

Decked in a blazer with a briefcase hanging by my side, I passed a small sign that read “Write2Ignite.” My first writer’s conference. I hoped and prayed for opportunity, knowledge, and experience that waited behind the glass doors. By the end of the conference, I received all and more. Anyone who hopes to hone their craft and bring theirContinue reading “More than a Writing Conference”

Post Grad Life: 3 Months of Limbo

I sat in a coffee shop with my friend Emily, a large white cup and saucer we both agreed came out of a Friends episode rested between my hands. “It feels almost like you’re in limbo.” Those were my words to her while describing my life after college so far. I say limbo because manyContinue reading “Post Grad Life: 3 Months of Limbo”

2016: The Year of Half Staff

By Leah Jordan Meahl   For the dove flies on, Leaving a trail of red below The flag—at half-staff.   Streams of fire replace the stars, Across the sea sees the fading glow, For the dove flies on.   The heart strings are drawn, As the fabric hangs low, The flag—at half-staff.   A proudContinue reading “2016: The Year of Half Staff”

Donald Trump: Choose Love

Friday, January 20th, 2017. That morning you were doing one of two things: watching the Presidential Inauguration or not watching it. As for my family, we sat around our TV and watched history being made. It was the first inauguration that I was actually interested in seeing. I don’t have a taste for politics inContinue reading “Donald Trump: Choose Love”

Post-Grad Life: First Month

Walking across that stage and taking my diploma in hand was one of the most empowering experiences I’ve ever had. Getting a college degree is an accomplishment that not everyone can claim. I can now tell the world that I’m a college graduate, but having said that, the title comes with a little weight. Well,Continue reading “Post-Grad Life: First Month”

When You Fail at Your New Year’s Goals

Specialists say that eating a good breakfast can help you get through the day. Your average person may say a strong cup of coffee is the best way to start your morning. While I partake in both of these, I think God is the best source of energy, and there’s no better time like the peace and quiet of the early morning to power up.

I’m a Christian who Celebrates Hanukkah

I love decorating the dining room table for festive occasions, a trait I’ve learned from my mother who’s skilled in this particular area. Crystal candlestick holders, my parent’s wedding china, and a new freshly pressed blue tablecloth are spread about. The perfect fixings for a fancy table. At this time of year, you no doubt assumeContinue reading “I’m a Christian who Celebrates Hanukkah”
