31 Things

31, we’re a few days in and I have to say — you’re lookin’ good. I have no idea what this year will bring, but I do know that I love making lists.  So I came up with 31 things that I would love to make happen this year....

10 Things I’ve Learned: Graham

One of my favorite things in life is watching friends have a dream…and then go for it. My friend, Graham, is one of those people.  And actually, he has lots of dreams.  But time and again, he has shown the world that he isn’t afraid — in fact, he loves — to...

A box office report for April 2014 and three alternative movie suggestions to break up blockbuster season: Mood Indigo, The Congress, and Enemy.

10 Things I’ve Learned: Mollie

I met today’s guest-poster back when we were roommates at Southwestern College, a tiny liberal arts school in southeastern (yes, the irony) Kansas.  We were perhaps unlikely friends, as we had hardly anything in common when dorm life first brought us together.  I was the introvert, Mollie was the...

10 Things I’ve Learned From Watching Movies

I'm always trying to connect the films I see with my everyday life. Movies inspire me, challenge my assumptions, change my views, break my heart, lift my soul, and, yes, even teach me Life Lessons. Here are ten.

10 Things I’ve Learned: Aggie

Hey everyone!  We’re back with our 10 Things I’ve Learned series after two weeks off.  (Sorry about the delay.  We’ve been working on some mega technical changes behind the scenes with this site, but it should be running smoothly now and showing up in your feed.  Whew!) But our...

Open Windows

I have officially added something to the list of my favorite things on earth: open windows. The weather has been up and down here since the calendar officially welcomed in Spring.  But through those past few weeks, even tonight’s glorious thunderstorm, my windows have remained open.  Sometimes cracked, sometimes flung...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Julie

Today’s contributor to the 10 Things series is someone whom I’ve never officially met in person, but was introduced to in the coolest way — through the comment section on this blog! That’s right.  Over the past year or so, I had begun to notice that some girl named...

Words

Somehow I seem to have surrounded myself in life with friends who are amazing with words. I’m sure you know what I mean.  They are those people who always have the perfect encouraging or comforting thing to say when a friend is having a hard time.  They are those...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Kelly

Kind of similar to last week’s post from Janelle, I basically had a friend-crush on Kelly before I ever met her.  It began in the church where I used to work (as did Kelly back before my time), where I was captivated by these enormous, colorful, bright paintings that...
