The Girl with the Cane

Law school is insanely hard and recovering from a broken femur is insanely hard. I've become very familiar with mental and physical exhaustion, yet somehow there's been this constant sense of joy that I can't really put into words. It comes in part, from knowing that in spite of all the tough stuff (that I... Continue Reading →


If you’ve read When God Lets You Break you know that four years ago I broke my femur in a car-accident, and that also it’s been an uphill battle every day since then.

Unearned grace

There is a part of me that really wants to earn my grace. It’s the prideful part of me that wants to be "like Hey Jesus, look at what a good Christian I’ve been, look at this good deed I did, etc." and build up a list of credit to somehow justify even a piece... Continue Reading →
