Living Fearless.

We can all agree that being fearful is always inside of us. Like there is always that one, tiny thing that could scare us for the rest of our lives and it is like it is part of our human nature. Growing up, being afraid is something that I always dealt with, whether it was mentally or physically. Then one morning during my quiet time I came across a verse in Pslam and it read”

“The Lord is my light and my Salvation, so whom shall I fear.”

Y’all this verse was a wake-up call because it speaks so much truth. Why be afraid when you have the Lord Almighty right next to your shoulder wherever you go. He is YOUR protector and YOUR Father who will never abandon you no matter what you face. He never has so why would He now? When hard times come, know that He is there to guide your way through it. I try to live fearless and to walk with the confidence of God’s unconditional love, and I pray that you will too. So try to be fierce and fearless today – whether you are at school, work, or at home – because you ARE fierce and you ARE fearless.


9 Netflix shows you NEED to watch.

Throughout my Netflix journey, I’ve encountered TONS of movies and tv series. Some I get hooked so easily that I re-watch on loop. But then there are times where I get stuck because I have no idea what to watch next. If you are like that and are in need of some good TV series to start binging, below are my top 10 Netflix shows you need to watch. Who knows, maybe you’ll get hooked like I have. ⇓⇓

  1. Gossip Girl

Of course, this should be a no-brainier for those who just absolutely love the show. But if you were like me, then at first you get kind of hesitant. When I first started watching this series I got slightly confused but eventually, brain clicked two and two together, and now I love it. Although it is a teen drama, the mystery behind it as a whole is very intriguing and worth checking out.

  1. Jane the Virgin

Okay now, this show is one of those where the second you watch, the second you get hooked. This hilarious comedy is something I never expected watching, but the more I watched, the more I wanted more to solve the problems presented in the episodes.

2. Gilmore Girls

Best. Show. Ever. okay so I may have exaggerated a little bit but seriously if you have not seen this show yet, then what are you waiting for? Episodes on your local channel will erratically play but you have to watch it from the very beginning. Then when you are done, watch the revival right after. I promise you your life will change after watching it and you will instantly fall in love.

3. Riverdale

This other CW show is something that just got released on Netflix and will have a season two premiere on October 11th. If you are anything interested in the Archie Andrews comics then this show might be for you. It is based on the comics and implies a twist, making it a teen mystery show. Also if you have any interested in KJ Apa or Cole Sprouse then their characters will satisfy your soul real fast. If you are not sure what I am talking about, then you just have to watch the show to find out.

4.Girl boss

Based on the creator of the clothing line Nasty Gal, this show with Britt Robertson is brilliant. It is brilliant in a way that that the audience can relate on some level. It is truly inspiring, and hilarious all at once. If you think I am absolutely nuts after reading my explanation, then you just need to watch it understand.

5. Pretty Little Liars

I feel every person, mostly women have probably seen this show at least once. If you are like me, then you have watched it since the very beginning on ABC Family. This mystery drama is set around five best friends, but when one goes missing and it claimed “dead” the four remaining best friends are being targeted by an unknown person named “A.” Out of seven seasons, it is definitely one of those good teen mystery shows to watch… especially with a group of your friends.

6. Criminal Minds

Everyone needs to watch a good crime show here and there right? You know, the ones that make you feel like the detective and that you could pretty much solve any crime? Criminal Minds is that show for me. It is just something about it that intrigues the detective side of me, and I know it will do the same for you. (Plus there is an episode in season three with Frankie Muniz that will make you go crazy haha.. or at least it did with me.)

7. New Girl

The theme song is playing in your head right now, isn’t it? Honestly, does New Girl really need a long explanation? This genius comedy is something that all audience members can relate, like y’all I haven’t laughed so hard in my life because the scenario in certain episodes are scenes that I could relate to. Hands down the greatest show to ever exist and you. need. to. watch. it. now.

8. Friends

Let’s throw it back to good classic sitcom, shall we? If you have not seen this show yet then I am sure your parents have, if you are a millennial like me. This show is just THAT good and THAT iconic that it is worth your time to watch at least one episode. I promise you that after one episode, that you will not leave your couch until after every single season is watched.

9. 13 Reasons Why

Oh my word. oh my word. OH, MY WORD. Guys this Netflix original is just whoa… Based off of the book of the same name, this story line gives you chills in places where you never thought you could get chills. If you are like me and want to read the book before you watch the show, I highly recommend you do so. The TV show does follow the story line and everything but does change a few things than what was written in the book itself. So what are you waiting for? Go binging season one now before season two premieres because I honestly believe something big is going to happen.

Las Vegas Tragedy.

Waking up this morning wasn’t the greatest of them all. I mean of course it is a Monday, and not many enjoy these kinds of days, but this reason is different. Last night was a country music festival in Las Vegas, and unfortunately a mass shooting occurred.  With at least 50 dead and over 400 injured, this was one of the “deadliest mass shootings in modern American history.” It is hard to wrap our minds around this, and why somebody would even consider shooting up a huge event like this. So today I encourage you to stop whatever you are doing and pray for those effected. Pray for all the injured and that their wounds, physically and mentally, are to be healed. Pray for the loved ones of the fifty people dead, that their grieving hearts won’t bury them to the point where they cannot handle it anymore. And of course, pray for those who are mentally effected by this event. Yes they may not be dead or injured, but witnessing something like that is super scary and could possibly traumatize them. And as you pray, stop and thank God because He has protected you through all of the hard times, and most importantly He has and will protect you from whatever danger comes your way.  God bless y’all and have a good day!!

8 Netflix movies you NEED to watch.

Throughout my Netflix journey, I’ve encountered TONS of movies and tv series. Some I get hooked so easily that I re-watch on loop. But then there are times where I get stuck because I have no idea what to watch next. If you are like that and are in need of some good movies, below are my top 8 Netflix movies you need to watch. Who knows, maybe you’ll get hooked like I have. ⇓⇓⇓

  1. 1 Mile To You

Don’t get me wrong guys, I was a little skeptical about this movie because I was WAY confused of the plot line throughout the film, but that was until I watched it. This film literally gave me so many chills that I cried and watched it again on a loop. If you are looking for good romance/teen/drama movie, this one is for you.

2. You Get Me

Okay lets get real here: I was shook when I watched this. This film created by Awesomeness TV is a genius teen triller that will have you on your feet the whole time. I literally love thriller films and this one for sure satisfied my thriller movie cravings. Definitely worth the watch at your next sleepovers with your friends.

3. Kiss and Cry

Okay. Okay. OKAY // words cannot even explain how much I adore this movie. I will warn you that you will burst into tears, but the storyline is much needed to watch. For a teen drama (that’s based on a true story), you will be falling in love with characters, like I did. Also add this with the combination of the first movies, and your movie night with some girlfriends will be complete.

4. Be Somebody

This what I like to call the “cool down” movie that will give you a smile on your face. It is pretty much a Netflix version of Disney’s “Starstruck”, but just AS good. So if you are craving a light hearted teen genre movie, then this one will fit your needs for sure.

5. Waffle Street

Out of all the movies that is listed, this is an oddball, but just as good. With the amazing James Lafferty (aka Nathan Scott from OTH) as the lead star, this inspiration, comedic film will brighten up your day & mood. 10/10 recommend for sure.

6. The Last Five Years

So knowing me a musical has to be added to the mix right? This well known musical seriously got brought back to life with the help of Anna Kendrick & Jeremy Jordan. The love story on its own is the best thing ever, but to turn it into a film with two of the greatest people in the acting busniess ⇒ well that is something for you to see for yourself.

7. The Great Gatsby

Nothing like a good old classic to satisify ones soul right? At least for me it does & boy does this movie satisfy. Do not get me wrong, the remake movie with Leo Decaprio was good, but not AS good as this original film because it stays true with the story. So if you are picky on how movies stay true to books they are based upon on, this will do you justice.

8. A Cinderella Story

AHH!! Internally fangirling like I am? This classic throwback is finally released on Netflix and you have to go watch it as soon as you can. We can pretty much agree that out of all of the Cinderella Story movies, the first one is the best by far. Plus, you seriously can’t get enough of Chad Michael Murray as Austin Ames amiright?


His eye on the sparrow.

“Because he loves me,” says the Lord,”I will rescue him;I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life, I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”  // Psalm 91:14-16

If we look at our tangible circumstances -> our struggles, our uncertainties, all the ways we feel we’re failing at all the things -> happiness hardly seems to fit, but if we look to Jesus -> to the promises if His Word and the Glory if His cross -> a holy joy begins to hum underneath the sound of earthly sorrow. He is the best friend that’s got your back and will literally die for you. Literally He died on a cross just for you because he LOVES you!. And by showing that same love to Him, He will watch your back 24/7. Now that is such a great feeling to have and a reminder to know.

It’s okay to wait.

As young adults the one thing we desire to seek are relationships. Especially in today’s society it is like it’s a “requirement” to go ahead a find a young man/ or woman because we want it and feel like we need it. As Christians we know that our God has that special someone in our lives already picked out, it is just the matter of waiting for the right time to meet that person. Waiting can be very frustrating, but I promise you that it will be worth it. For example, In high school I never rushed into dating because I knew God had a man in store for me but there were times when I wanted to find a boy and start dating him just so I can experience being in a relationship at least once in my lifetime. Of course I never I did that, but the questions were starting to dart at Him. I kept asking Him why I haven’t encountered the right man yet. Like literally this how my prayer would go ⇒ “Dear Lord I know you have the right man picked out for me but why haven’t you introduced him to me yet? Or at least shove a boy at me so i can experience dating at least once. I know there are strong Christian males out in this world but why are they just too hard to find?…”

You see that was the problem. I kept searching instead of sitting back and letting the Lord do his work. It wasn’t until recently when God gave me an answer to part of multiple questions. He proved to me that there are strong Christian males in this world, and that I just haven’t encountered them yet. Now whether that specific man is the “one” is up to the Lord for telling me, but it did give me assurance that there is nothing wrong with waiting. In fact being patient with the Lord is the best thing that you could possibly do because the more you wait, the more the Lord will think you’re ready to begin your future with your spouse. So don’t rush into the dating scene. It is okay to wait for the time to come, and especially pray for your partner too. Even though you don’t know them just yet, doesn’t mean they aren’t praying for you too, and that right there is something special to look forward to.


Resolute (part 3)


Resolute: Admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering.

3 areas we must stand resolute:

    – Character: Who you are when no one is looking.

– Who am I when no one is looking?

* fun fact: Daniel is about 70 years old by Daniel chapter 6

Daniel 6:3 ” Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.” ⇒ How are you distinguishing yourself in life?

– There are different ways to distinguish yourself to make you stand out.

– If you don’t stand strong in your character of Christ, it will bite you back!

– You won’t be given places of Leadership, Authority, or Responsibility unless you have proven you can be trusted with the SMALL things.

– Small character flaws will sink your ship with God if you don’t handle it NOW!


Daniel 6:10 “Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.”

– What is you pursuit posture?

– Excuses we make:

* I don’t have time

* I’m tired

– We can pursue Christ through prayer!

– We will never experience a relationship with God if we don’t pull the kite to catch the wind and roll us along.

– How to pursue God:

* Grab a journal

* Grab a pen and Bible

* Highlight verses ⇒ explain in your own words

* Pray about it

– We must put ourselves in that posture

– H.E.A.R. : Highlight, Explain, Apply, Respond


2nd Timothy 3: 12-13 “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

– When we face opposition it’s not guaranteed God will shut the lion’s mouth, but we just trust and know God has our backs

Daniel 6:20 ” When he came near the den, he called to Daniel in an anguished voice,” Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?”

Question : Has He saved me?

Answer : YES HE HAS!


Resolute (Part 2).

Daniel 3

King Neb (a.k.a. veggie tales bunny) builds a HUGE gold statue

Daniel 3:4-6 // ” Then the herald loudly proclaimed, “Nations and peoples of every language, this is what you are commanded to do: As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe, and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.”

*This was Right after King Neb. had met God

Romans 1:24-25 // “Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator who is forever praised. Amen.”

– How often do we see God, only to go worship something else?


|| For fears of mortal death, they worshiped a statue, which cost them enternal life. In doing so they cost others enternal life too. Because everyone else was going to do it. WE VALUE OUR STATUES OVER THE HOLINESS OF GOD ||

You will do what you love…do you love Jesus?

Daniel 3: 8-19 || 15-16|| ” At this time some astrologers came forward and denounced the Jews. They said to King Nebuchadnezzar, ” May the king live forever! Your Majesty has issued a decree that everyone who hears the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music must fall down and worship the image of gold, and that whoever does not fall down and worship will be thrown into a blazing furnace. But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon- Shadrach, Meshach,and Abednego- who pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They neither serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” Furious with rage, Nebuchadnezzar summoned Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king, and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, ” Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up? Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?” Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied to him,” King Nebuchadnezzar, we do no need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from You Majesty’s hand. But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace heated seven times hotter than usual.”

Daniel 3: 24-25 ” Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisors, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied,” Certainly, Your Majesty.” He said, ” Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed,and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.”


|| If you put yourself on the line for Him, He will be there with you in the fire ||

You know God is the only God but have you surrendered to Him?
Jesus saves, let Him save you.


I started a 3 week series in Daniel 1 called Resolute, and I wanted to share my notes that I took out of the sermons. So with that being said, here is week 1 of Resolute.

There are consequences when coming to disobey God -> SIN WILL FIND YOU
Daniel and his friends were taken captive in luxury ; that’s how we want to be usually
In verse 5 is says “to be trained..”
– Literally: “to be made strong, great, wealthy, and important”

Daniel and his friend’s Jewish names were changed into false gods names, when held captive in Babylon

Daniel 1:8 ” But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way.” -> but Daniel resolved not to defile himself…

Big Question: Are you resolved to not defile yourself?
-What does this mean?   ->     Resolve in Holiness

Leviticus 9:

Daniel resolved and said that nothing is more important than having intimacy and a relationship with God.

I have to follow these Godly rules vs. nothing can compare having intimacy with God

There can’t be anything more beautiful than God, and  normally we don’t see the beauty of God because we are distracted.

In our eyes it is just simple food, but I’m Daniel’s eyes it is sin


Standing resolute in Holiness requires:

  1. unquestionable obedience
  2. A willingness to do without (We are drawn to sin because we are scared of missing out)
  3. Trusting God as Lord regardless of the circumstances

1st Peter 3:15 // “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect”

This is how we should resolve ourselves.
