My Thrive Experience: 2 Week Update

  Where to begin? I’m not a highly emotional person. I’m rational, skeptical, and even a bit cynical at times. But not with Thrive. It’s no small thing when I say: Thrive has completely changed my life. Starting my second week, I’m beginning to rest better. Sleep and gut issues have always been my biggest struggles. When one is off, … Read More

God, I’m Stuck.

Have you ever felt stuck in growth, in progress, or just in life? You think, “God, I could do so much more if You would just move me.” What we fail to realize though is the reason you aren’t being moved is because you’ve been planted.

My Thrive Experience: Week 1

I’ve been on Thrive for a full week now, and I will confidently say that I’ve never felt so great in my adult life.

Where’s God When I Need Him?

I’ve felt kind of “stuck” in my circumstances lately, like I don’t have much of a say in my own life. The “stuckness” isn’t a result of anything except people and situations I have no control over. I’m a firm believer in growth and changing what’s in your power to do so. So naturally, stuckness isn’t a theme I’m fond … Read More

2017 Has a New Name

As I wrote in a previous post, every new year, I name the upcoming one based on what I hope to figure out, do, or achieve in those 365 days. To be honest, I’d struggled trying to find a fitting name for 2017 as I had plenty of plans and goals but no simple way to sum up what I … Read More
