Simple Faith: Embracing Vulnerability

The armor that keeps you safe is blocking the light. Why don’t you put down that 10-ton shield, and see for yourself?

I didn’t want to take your hand. I didn’t want to follow you. Again and again, I called You back into the comfort I believed in. But there was no stopping You. In the end, I realized I couldn’t truly live without You. In the end, I ran after You – past everything I’d known, through my fears […]

What I loved about my first open mic night

I recently submitted a poem to a local community blog, which was curated by a spoken word artist. I personally am NOT a spoken word artist – at all.
