How To Be On Mission When You’re Not In Ministry

A few months ago, I got a DM from a reader asking me this very question: “What are some ways I can be on mission when I’m not in ministry?” The question stopped me in my tracks. What a thought-provoking but also very real question. It was such a humbling question and one I really wanted to spend time thinking about before sending back some off-the-cusp or canned answer. It…


The BTD Community’s Healthy Lunch Ideas

Y’all have probably noticed that I’m finally truly making some strides on a healthier lifestyle, and I’m actually serious about it. I’m feeling a lot better when I’m working out often, and I’m even trying to improve my diet (FOR REAL THIS TIME!). I still have a long way to go but I always love hearing from y’all when I need inspiration or ideas. And since part of my lack…

Currently Shopping

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared things that I’m loving around the internets. I used to round up a list each week and I sort of miss doing that. So after a few of you reached out asking for shopping help, I decided it’d be fun to start weaving these types of posts back into the blog content! Let me know what you think! August is such a weird…

Where to Shop for Office Outfits This Fall

Is it weird that I sometimes miss dressing for the office or business meetings? It’s been years since I had an office job and “had” to, but I still find myself window shopping cute business casual outfits from time to time. Don’t get me wrong, leggings every day don’t suck, but I kind of love the idea of putting together work outfits. And since I know a lot of y’all…


4 Books I Just Finished

After sharing the books I’m currently reading (about to read, just finished, etc) on my stories, a few of y’all asked that I put together a blog post listing them out. So that’s what I’m doing. Y’all know I love to learn and reading is by far one of my absolute favorite ways to absorb new information, challenge myself, and think through the world around me. Here’s what I’m currently…


Why You Should Do The Hardest Thing First

Fact of life: Some tasks are just much harder than others. Whether it’s because a task is out of your comfort zone from a technical perspective or because it brings up ALL THE FEARS or because it’s going to require a difficult phone call or something like that, it’s challenging to motivate yourself to do it first up in the morning. I get that y’all – it’s hard for me,…

3 Reasons I’ve Been Using Tula & Loving It

I’ve shared that I use Tula on Insta Stories before, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized I hadn’t dedicated a blog post to it. Which is kinda funny because I’ve been literally using it for years and it’s one of my favorite skincare lines. I’ve been using them in some way or another since all the way back when they were first getting started – maybe back in…


How to Improve Your Personal Idea of Wealth

If y’all have been following along for a while, especially on Stories, then you know that one of my goals for 2018 was to get better at finances. Honestly, as someone in my late twenties, I’m somewhat embarrassed that it’s taken me this long. On the flip side, though, it’s made me realize I’m not alone. Which is why I’m super excited to work with Charles Schwab to bring you…


How To Be Better At Making Decisions

Over the years of BTD, it is a pretty well-documented fact that making decisions is NOT my strong suit. I don’t know if it’s the fear of missing out or playing too many ‘what if’ scenarios in my head, but whatever the case may be, when it comes to “efficient” decision-making: I cringe. The net result of this cringe-induced paralysis? I don’t make a decision at all. Instead, I end…


BTD Q3 2018 Playlist

I feel like I’m always listening to music – whether while on a walk, while I get ready or even sometimes while I work. And each quarter, I like to share a little bit of what I’ve been listening to with y’all. I’m a little late with Q3’s playlist – given that we’re over halfway through it – but I figured better late than never! You’ll notice this playlist is…
