Ten times in Genesis, the phrase “These are the descendants of…” is stated. It’s used to introduce all of the Old Testament patriarchs, except one: Abraham. Why is this? Because the descendants of Abraham are innumerable. Not only that: we are descendants of Abraham by faith (Galatians 3:29).Genesis didn’t list Abraham’s descendants because it was something that could not yet be listed. 

Patriarchy is not God’s dream for humanity.

I just saw a real bumper sticker that said “if you’re reading this, thank a teacher. If you’re reading this in ENGLISH, thank a SOLDIER.” I was just like thank you for proving how disgusting American imperialism is.

have you ever wanted to turn down the A/C in your car but proceeded to turn down the music instead




I had the absolute honor of attending & 2nd/3rd shooting the wedding of one of my oldest and most lovely friends- and her incredibly charming husband. Thank you both for letting me be a part of such a beautiful occasion. You two were obviously meant for each other and I cannot wait to see what God does as you walk alongside one another for the rest of your lives ♥

Anonymous said: Hey! So I saw your post about blog content and it was something I was thinking about a lot, so it gave me the motivation to finally go through and unfollow a lot of blogs that I felt would deter me from a cleaner way of thinking. Now my feed is kind of empty! Do you have any blogs that you would suggest? (:
