Now before I go into my story and main point, I just want to share a simple gratitude.  My biggestContinue reading “Crying out… and some updates and gratitude”

The Straw in the Manger

My family whom I love dearly is far from perfect. And even on Christmas night, sometimes we just fall. Sometimes my pride says, “Oh Mikayla are you really so weak that you still fight with your family” or “Seriously aren’t you beyond this”. But the reality is I’m human. So on Christmas night when myContinue reading “The Straw in the Manger”

The Beast. The Boy. The Man

What if I Change My Mind?

Something Jesus and I have been talking about lately is changing ones mind. Everyone wants people to change their minds, but it’s so hard to change our own mind. And I’m not talking about changing your mind on big things like the faith, abortion, or things that are very black and white. I’m talking aboutContinue reading “What if I Change My Mind?”
