Nikki and Artem are Married!

Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev got married (in Paris)!!!!!! That is the post. Almost fell out of my chair when I saw the news break. Fangirling here. They met in 2017 on Dancing With the Stars. I remember it so well. One of my favorite couples. It was cool to see Nikki’s transformation on theContinue reading “Nikki and Artem are Married!”

A Lesson from Ms. Hilton (Loves It)

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s 2004. For Christmas, I get the new Paris Hilton fragrance with a black quilted handbag that has a little compact in it, and it has the name “Paris Hilton” embroidered into it in bright pink. The greatly coveted and cherished gift set. If you were a teen in the early 2000s,Continue reading “A Lesson from Ms. Hilton (Loves It)”

Overheard in the Courthouse

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s rainy. The kind of rain that makes all of my baby hair curl up. I am sitting in front of a judge I had stood next to at an intersection this morning. We both had the unpleasant realization that we were standing in the splash zone. A car went by thatContinue reading “Overheard in the Courthouse”

Hurry and Fear

By: Gabriela Yareliz There are two things Joanna Weaver points out in her book Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World that stayed with me: Jesus was never in a hurry. I think of all the time I spend scurrying around like a mouse, and this gives me pause; and Fear is like fog.Continue reading “Hurry and Fear”

Martha Service

By: Gabriela Yareliz My mind has still be stirring with thoughts on service (that and the Johnny Depp trial). I have been enjoying the book Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver. It’s a story that is often told or talked about, especially in regards to women. I feel like mostContinue reading “Martha Service”

(Friend) Speech

By: Gabriela Yareliz We will get extra personal today. Uncensored speech. I have been thinking about this a lot lately in regard to friendship. Do we as adults need more friendships? Is there some sort of age cap? Modern friendships are weird. We have a world that wants to opinion check everyone. If you don’tContinue reading “(Friend) Speech”

The Adele Music Series

By: Gabriela Yareliz We walked through many of Adele’s hits and albums and how they relate to her life. She was a fun one to look at. Her songs very much reflect where she was as an artist and as a woman. And it’s not over yet… Wishing her the best, as she enters yetContinue reading “The Adele Music Series”

Arbiters

By: Gabriela Yareliz As someone who interacts with Christians from all political leanings online through my website, I have observed how subtly and yet blatantly we have turned from Scripture on many issues and sort of made ourselves our own little gods. We often gravitate toward whatever makes us feel righteous, good, included and unlikeContinue reading “Arbiters”

Uninvited

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today’s song became Adele’s second number one in the U.S. “Someone Like You” hit the airwaves and stayed there on repeat. It’s one of the last songs on 21, and it makes sense. This song marks the end to the relationship the entire album talks about. The song serves almost as aContinue reading “Uninvited”
