The Blog—

a place of THOUGHT & inspiration

Trading Incessant Doing for Restful Being I recently encountered my first full-on wall of writer’s block in a long, long time.

Dear Reader: Don't Your Ever Let Go - kaitlynhiltz.com

This wasn’t exactly something I intended to write when I sat down to do so this week, but sometimes you hear stories that have a way of tugging at your heart strings, and this is what comes out. Allow me to remind you why we’re all here. … Dear Reader, I don’t know your name. I […]

The other day I went straight to the beach in what you could call nothing short of a desperate attempt to face plant into the sand with a view of the ocean. Well, I guess I can’t really see much of the ocean if my face is in the sand, but you get what I’m […]

The other day I was browsing various podcasts by Judah Smith, Senior Pastor of City Church.  As I browsed his relatively lengthy collection on iTunes, the title of one caught my eye – “Instagram Isn’t Real“. Hmm, that’s different for a Christian sermon topic, I thought.  [Double-click] I started listening…ok fine, I started half-listening as the background to some […]
