The Adoption: Welcome

Firstly, I really just want to thank everyone for the ABUNDANCE of support and prayer thus far. It’s only been a few days and I am still overwhelmed with thankfulness. My family and friends have for the most part been extraordinarily supportive and with…

I’m Adopting.

Initially, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to tell anyone about this, but I’m confident that was only fear in my heart. I’ll start from the beginning. For the past two years, I’ve been going back and forth with God about my singleness, unhealthy…

Where Did the Auction Come From…?

Lately I’ve been asked where the ‘Abraham’s Tent Love Auction’ came from, and I guess I don’t really tell the “backstory” that often… Well, here’s a condensed version: 3 years ago Justin and Emily Martindale had this calling from God to have a fundraiser…

“Lest You Be Hardened”

Hebrews 3:13 Your thoughts, your words, your ways      Are high, So far above my place      That I  Sometimes perceive your broad      Daylight— Your brilliant blue, your sun—     As night. You love me with some shock,      A threat. Am I…

Today’s Milestones 7/15/2014.

I’ll make this quick. I really just want to share what I would consider note worthy in this whole lifestyle change of mine. 1. I sang “Saving All My Love” by Whitney Houston without cracking, not once. That has nothing to do with the…

Strawberry Schmear.

Good morning you guys! Okay, so I generally don’t blog about food or anything pertaining to food, mainly because I don’t think you care what I eat but this recipe made my morning. Beside the fact that it’s my first off day in forever,…

I Won’t Tell My Single Mother Happy Father’s Day.

Let me preface this blog with a couple of things: 1. The title wasn’t meant to trick you into reading it. No where in here do intend on twisting my words and giving my moms any recognition dealing with Father’s day. I titled it…

X-Men, Modesty, & Reasons to talk to yourself.

Hey you guys! Thanks to everyone that continues to read my blog and comment on ways to change and improve, even when I’m slacking. I definitely appreciate it. Well, it’s the summer and there were many options as to how I’d spend this one…

The Scrouge of Racism

The Scrouge of Racism Ravi Zacharias gave his input on the racial “scandal” pertaining to Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. Last night a couple of my close friends and I were discussing the complications and ambiguity in racism. By the end…

“Man of Sorrows”

“Oh that rugged Cross, my salvation, Where your love poured out, over me. Now my soul cries out Hallelujah, Praise and honor unto Thee.” It’s been in my head all night. I’ll never be able to understand the selflessness in Christ’s sacrifice for our sin….

iRant…

Generally before starting a blog I do a ton of research, praying, or even asking others’ opinions on the topic at hand. None of that happened here. This is completely at random and I’m almost skeptical of how it’s going to end. *dives in*…

I really thought I’d have a ton to say. I haven’t blogged in a while and a lot has happened since I last did. I looked through my phone and my journal and found so many places where I’d jotted down ideas for blog…
