Slowing Down: A Conversation on Fast Fashion

I recently watched a powerful documentary called The True Cost*, cataloging the devastating truth behind the fast fashion industry. Many companies refuse to hold responsibility for the outsourcing of their production in countries such as Bangladesh, Cambodia, and India (among countless impoverished others), where labor is incredibly cheap, living wages are nearly never met, working… Continue reading Slowing Down: A Conversation on Fast Fashion

Rhythms of Grace

I found it fitting, in this moment of solitude, to write again. If you're wondering where I've been, I've been in busy-ville. If you're wondering why I haven't shared, it's because I'm in overwhelming-ton. If you're simply wondering how life in Portland is, it's hard.

Hold Onto Hope

A few days ago I finished what to me was the most life changing book ever. To say I devoured it is an understatement. I couldn't stop reading it. Every word of it is God-breathed and full of truth. I already want to read it a second time. It gave me the courage to step… Continue reading Hold Onto Hope
