Miss You | WIRL Project

I Miss You Today

I woke up with a frown on my face. Looked out the window, saw the rain, and questioned what reasoning I had to get out of bed. I sluggishly put on my t-shirt and faded blue jeans. Not caring about what I looked like, I paired my outfit with some broken sandals tied together by a thin black string. I wondered what might be so different about the day when so far, everything was as somber as usual on...

The Question That Made Me Realize My Stress Was Hurting My Husband. A Lot.

The Question That Made Me Realize My Stress Was Hurting My Husband. A Lot.

Last year I came across a blog post that encouraged me to ask a question, just one question, of my spouse. The couple who wrote the article said it did wonders in their marriage, so I tried it. I asked Kyle, “What do you need from me?” I fully expected him to answer something related to him, to his love languages, something like, “I need more encouragement and support from you regarding my job” or...

When My Pastor Said “Follow Jesus”, Did He Mean on Social Media?

At church, my pastor, David Chadwick, was giving his awesome sermon and he was talking about “following Jesus”. Leave it to me, being so actively involved in the social media world, to think to myself, If Jesus were on social media or had a blog and he showed up in my newsfeed, what would that be like? I’m pretty sure this is not what David meant when he said “follow”...

What It’s Really Like to Be a Flight Attendant

Being a flight attendant comes with some major perks: For one, you get to travel the world. But the job isn’t without its own challenges, too.

So what wins out: Homesickness, or love of travel? Turns out that’s just one of the q...

It’s funny because in my family – I was the youngest of 4 girls, and my 3 sisters each h...
