About that tattoo of mine

Those of you who follow me on Instagram may remember a certain post about me getting a tattoo in Spain. It's been called a "v", a pen mark, and not a real tattoo (all jokingly!), but for me it's a reminder.

I spent spring break in Nice with one of my best friends. I journaled through 30 Questions to Ask Your heart and wrote about the kind of woman I want to be. All of my thoughts centered around two things: A woman whose love for God is evident and a woman whose love for others is undeniable.

Two verses kept whispering to me:

John 3:30 "He must become greater; I must become less."

Philippians 2:3-4 "Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others."

Those thoughts turned into a tattoo idea--a greater than sign that has me as the less than side of the equation. This tiny reminder gives me daily conviction and encouragement as I watch God create change in my heart.

What is God doing in your life lately?

Share the love,



  1. God has really been trying to get me to spend more time with him and to rely on him. I'm being really stubborn, of course. But not because I don't want to (of course I do), but mostly because I've been feeling so far for so long that the motivation is just really lacking. It's so hard being a Christian! I'm glad that you openly write about your faith though. Not many young adult bloggers do that, so I always like reading about it when people do.

    1. Kriselle, you always encourage me to keep sharing my faith in this space!


Thanks for making my day a little brighter with your lovely words!
