Left, Left, Left Right Left. If you’ve been an American Christian for any length of time, then you’ve probably heard the phrase “Quiet Time” or “Daily Devotions” on multiple occasions.

Traveling will always make my heart leap. Maybe it has something to do with basically growing up on airplanes, or making SO many memories sleeping on airport floors, but every time I walk into a terminal I can’t help but feel a little bit at home! 😂Traveling around is definitely one of the greatest luxuries […]

Not long after, Cassandra’s best friend (and future maid-of-honor) Sarah, introduced her to Derrick! Let’s just say, our girl didn’t move anywhere! […]

I’ve got a thing for styled shoots. Seriously! I just can’t seem to get enough of them. When I was a little girl, one of my favorite activities was rummaging through the old clothes bin and playing dress up with whatever I could lay my hands on! Now that I’m older, I feel as though […]
