Since I said yes to the calling God has placed on my heart, I have done a ton of paperwork, feeling as though I am signing my life away. I am the only SM that is going from Walla Walla University (WWU).

Plus I am the worst at grammar and even worse at spelling, I couldn’t even spell my name for the longest time. Yet, I know that this experience I am about to embark on I will want to have a collection of writings to remember these times when my memory is fading away.

I can’t promise that I will post once or even bi-weekly, but I will try my best to give you new and updated content. So here goes….
