This week has been a hard one…between work, doctors appointments, an ambulance ride and a subsequent hospital stay, quitting a job I thought would be my forever future, and allowing my body time to just heal and process it all, it’s been hard to do much else than listen to music and read. So I thought I would post my Spotify playlist along with my current book list sitting on my bedside table. Enjoy the suggestions! And if you have any of your own, PLEASE SHARE!!!

I am a unique individual, aren't we all? I mean, we are made in the image of God, after-all! (Genesis 1:27) In my free time, you can catch me drinking coffee and eating chocolate while simultaneously listening and screaming along to worship music, all while reading, writing, or creating art, or messing around in the kitchen. I am often found hanging out and working with people who have special needs and fighting for their inclusion in society. I am a TOTAL fashionista and can NEVER have too many clothes! (Or too many of anything, I am kind of a hoarder, thanks to Amazon!) Back to the main point of my life: I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ above all else, but I do have a sin problem as a result from The Fall (Genesis 3). Being born into a world full of suffering which I have not been exempt from, God continues to open my eyes more and more to His Beauty that transcends all things, making my love grow and deepen for Him each day. As I am putting my feet back on the ground again after years of being self-claimed "unlivable" by my many years of mental illness, I am becoming more and more aware of the struggles people go through and the emotions that come with it. I am so glad that faith is not a feeling, friends, and that God's Love for us is equal and eternal! All you have to do is repent of your sins, believe that the Bible is true and that Jesus died an excruciating death and rose again, creating a place for you to spend eternity with Him in Paradise, that His Spirit now lives inside you, guiding you along your life on earth and you will be saved. If you want to hear more about this wonderful Friend I have found in Jesus, please reach out to me or stick around for more. The Gospel story is woven throughout our daily lives and is something we need to fill our minds with daily. I'm not perfect at this, and won't be until I get to Heaven, but all of my life's day to day struggles, no matter how mundane, just become worth it, knowing how undeserving I am of such grace, mercy, and love by my Savior Jesus Christ has bestowed upon me. I live and always have lived in Crystal Lake IL, a NW suburb of Chicago, with my wonderful parents, and brother when he's home from college, and I will be here until God calls me elsewhere.
