Waiting with Hope

“Therefore, we do not wait for the promise in despair but in hope. Hope, this glorious hope, rests in Jesus. As we consider His humble entrance into the world as a baby this Advent season, may we also eagerly await the day He returns in glory as King (Revelation 21:1-8). Like the Israelites rested forContinue reading “Waiting with Hope”

American Wealth: Hope, Opportunity & Resilience

[Image via englishspeecheschannel.com] “Always do what you are afraid to do.” Ralph Waldo Emerson By: Gabriela Yareliz There was a JFK essay contest in high school. We learned about it through a newspaper we would read in English class. Those cute papers that had poems and featured other peer writing. I wanted in, and IContinue reading “American Wealth: Hope, Opportunity & Resilience”

[Kate Moss and Johnny Depp via Pinterest] Elon Musk tweeted, “The bird is freed.” Is it really? The Twitter deal is complete. (Insert Honey Badger laughter here– if you know, you know). The month felt like it went by fast. The nights are longer and darker. Winter is at our doorstep. This month was moreContinue reading “October 2022 Favorites”

September 2022 Favorites

It’s officially autumn. What did I do this month? A lot. I bought a baseball bat, mostly because I was so sold by the Q&A on Amazon. One of the questions was: “Assuming the bat doesn’t function as expected, what’s the return policy for bloodstains?” The answer: “Depending on whose blood is on it, itContinue reading “September 2022 Favorites”

June 2022 Favorites

By: Gabriela Yareliz A new month begins. June was filled with really magical and fun moments. There were victories, excitement, and stress. It was sort of a harvest month. There are months when we cultivate and months when we reap the result of serious efforts and grace. I read some incredible books on entertaining, startedContinue reading “June 2022 Favorites”

Our Internal Narrative

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s a dark and rainy spring morning as I write this. It is so cool outside, which is refreshing after having woken up with allergies and swollen eyelids. (My allergies are killing me lately). I have my basil Beauty Pie candle going, and my pretty bunch of chamomile flowers on my entryContinue reading “Our Internal Narrative”

May 2022 Favorites

Hello! We have come to the end of my favorite month– and what a month it has been. I binged the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial. My thoughts on it were the #1 post of the month. As I review this, we are still on verdict watch. I enjoyed watching videos from the attorneysContinue reading “May 2022 Favorites”

Johnny Depp v Amber Heard

By: Gabriela Yareliz As many of you know, I have been following the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial. (Nerding out and feeling like I am in law school again). I get a thrill out of a good cross-examination that corners someone into telling the truth. Shout-out to The Body Language Guy (Jesus Enrique Rosas)Continue reading “Johnny Depp v Amber Heard”

The Jagged Lines

By: Gabriela Yareliz Erwin McManus wrote recently that we pick certain studies and professions because something deep inside of us sort of seeks something in that. He gives the example of his wife, a woman who was orphaned at 8 years old, who then went on to be a teacher for eight-year-old kids. While sheContinue reading “The Jagged Lines”
