Putting your art out for the world to critique is hard. It’s one of the most vulnerable things I’ve done in life. I always knew that I wanted to explore and nurture my artistic side, but I allowed my low self esteem to dictate my vision.

As a young girl, I spent countless hours dreaming of my wedding, future family, and spouse. I still have some of my dream wedding gown sketches from 6th grade.

That’s the dumbest theory in the world. Ok, maybe not in the world, but it’s dumb. The Bible teaches us that words … Continue reading Sharing Your Goals With Others Won’t Hinder Your Success. So, Stop Saying That!
