Studio Update 19

By: Gabriela Yareliz My Fitbit thinks I am dead. I haven’t charged it since we started this shelter in place. I log in my daily exercise, into the app, but I haven’t charged it because let’s face it, I am not taking a lot of steps. It’s me going from my desk to refill myContinue reading “Studio Update 19”

Studio Update 11

By: Gabriela Yareliz First, I wanted to say I got the eggs. Yep. I was crazy enough to get the dang eggs, garlic, oat milk (ugh, I know, I am one of those people), and some cookie mix because Lord knows I am sick of seeing everyone baking on Instagram. (I never bake. It’s oneContinue reading “Studio Update 11”

Studio Update 10

By: Gabriela Yareliz Update from yesterday: so, the neighbor made a cute wooden fence during yesterday’s Zoom calls. He didn’t sign it to me through the window; I just got nosy and investigated with my invisible binoculars. (Sometimes, you have to do what you have to do to stay informed.

Writing on the Wall

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am cleaning out my office because a new adventure awaits. My eyes fell on quotes I have on post-its on the wall.

Preparation

“You cannot plan for the life God has for you, you can only prepare for it.” Erwin McManus Here is to preparation. For the hours we spend in His presence, the times we spend listening and the chapters we read through in His word. Preparation is about character. Yesterday, I was reading in Luke thatContinue reading “Preparation”

My God is Alive

By: Gabriela Yareliz When we feel discouraged, let us remember that God is not dead. God is alive. God is working in every earnest heart that is humble and ready to receive Him. When confusion rages– we must remember that there is a movement of people that is on its knees. A movement of peopleContinue reading “My God is Alive”

Our Greatest Contribution

By: Gabriela Yareliz One of the lessons I have been learning and processing is this idea of guarding our hearts and minds. In spirituality, we often just think about this as it relates to purity, but I think that in this day and age that we live in, as we see more and more peopleContinue reading “Our Greatest Contribution”

Leaving Behind

By: Gabriela Yareliz I was reminded by Bailey, a sweet blogger at This Illustrious Life, in this decade and year– what are we leaving behind?
