An Excerpt from The Radiant Midnight by Melissa Maimone

03 Jun 2019

By Melissa MaimoneI’ve battled anxiety and depression for most of my life. It has come and gone through the years, but like cobwebs that show up in the corners of my house, the darkness always returns. I hated being depressed. I fought it. I felt deep shame about it. This formidable presence bullied every area of my life. It undermined my passion. It chipped away...

An Excerpt from “Here, Now” by Kate Merrick

09 May 2019

By Kate Merrick It seems more and more, as we live in the digital age, there is a counterfeit for every real thing. We stare at screens instead of looking out windows at meadows and mountains. We envy other people’s pictures, though they’re often filtered and angled so they portray something that isn’t genuine. We prefer to send emojis and text rather than talk face-to-face....

The Beautiful Paradox of Good Friday

The Beautiful Paradox of Good Friday

19 Apr 2019

By Allie Marie Smith I paused today to think about the irony of this day – that it is called “Good Friday.” “Bloody Friday” seems a little more fitting. Our natural, physical selves wonder how anything “good” can come from such a day: “They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull). Then they offered him wine mixed with...

5 Ways to Shop More Mindfully

05 Mar 2019

By Aimee Piersma Isn’t it amazing how we can have a closet full of clothing and still feel we have have nothing to wear? How many hours have we spent in our lifetimes, staring at overwhelming options. We have stories for every piece…reasons we love them, reasons we don’t wear them! So even though it’s irrational, sometimes it’s easier to just go buy something new....

The princess was given the freedom to give this precious gift to whoever she wanted to...

The Honest-to-Goodness Real Secret of Beauty

13 Jan 2019

Article and photograph by Allie Marie Smith In high school, you could say I suffered from a bit of social anxiety. At the grocery store checkout line, upon signing my receipt, my right hand would shake and I wasn’t able to look the clerk in the eye. In conversation with acquaintances or people I didn’t know well, I was always more concerned with how I...

How to Have an Instagram Account and Maintain Your Sanity

22 Sep 2018

Let’s be honest. This little app can easily consume our every spare moment if we let it. It is designed to be highly addictive and to keep you consuming its content for as long as possible which ultimately results in more advertising dollars for Facebook (which has owned Instagram since 2012). While there is nothing inherently wrong with using the app and while it has...

Beauty and Purpose In the Waiting

17 Jul 2018

By Arielle Estoria || There is something about this season that is just as frustrating as it is beautiful. It is the point in our lives where we decide to either sit and twiddle our thumbs waiting for someone to come along and give our lives purpose and excitement or it’s the season where we are wild and reckless with a “do now, think later”...

Why You Don’t Need to Post Swimsuit or Lingerie Photos to be Body-Positive

03 Jul 2018

There’s quite a body-positive movement on social media these days. Girls and women of all shapes, sizes and colors are posting swimsuit or lingerie photos of themselves and in the captions, sharing about their relationship with their body image in the name of body-positivity. It is a beautiful sight to see a woman accepting her figure, dimples and curves and often inspires me to do...
