Stay Calm, Beloved

Life continually seems to bring intense seasons of change. Currently, I find myself in one of these seasons. I have just moved to a new state (Iowa), I am about to embark on a new journey through doctoral school, and essentially everything is new here in Iowa. I have found this unsettling feeling of being foreign is isolating and challenging. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t feeling the familiar pang of homesickness in my new “home.” My husband and I moved here prior to my program starting so that he could search for a new job in this new land.


Milk and Honey Magazine explains the importance of finding Jesus Christ!

Hide N' Seek

I’ve always enjoyed games. I mean, who doesn’t?! Monopoly. Settlers of Catan. Chutes and ladders. Code Names. Charades. Spicy Uno. The options are endless! Growing up, my personal favorite game was Hide n’ Seek, with an added element… in the dark.

Milk and Honey Magazine's take on Easter at Coachella!

Easter @ Coachella

When I was a little girl, my family used to gather in Palm Springs every Easter. It was a fun-filled time of hunting for eggs with my cousins, enjoying brunch at the country club, and joyful reflection on Christ’s resurrection.


Am I Strong? Beautiful?

Am I strong? Beautiful? Am I good enough? Have you found yourself asking these questions? We live in a world that tears us down. A world that tells us we will never be skinny enough, smart enough, or good enough. If we let the world define us, we will always be let down. Instead, we have to be defined by the Cross.


Milk and Honey Magazine explains how young women can simplify their faith in Jesus Christ through prayer, the Bible, and community!

Simplify Your Faith

Minimalism is a practice that’s trending right now, born out of an opposition to the rampant materialism and consumerism that seems to devour our American lives.

Minimalism goes something like this: if an object doesn’t bring you joy, throw it out. You need less to survive (and thrive) than you think you do. Edit the objects that make their way into your life and home. Travel through life lightly. Set yourself free from your possessions.


Milk and Honey Magazine explains how to trust God when things are uncertain. Trust in the Word of Jesus and rest in His promises to you, darling girl!

Trusting God Through Uncertainty

The morning I almost missed the bus was when it hit me. No, not the bus, thankfully. It was God’s promise that hit me in a new way. As I sat in D.C.

The Lord's Prayer

A day after my 21st birthday, my darkest nightmare came to life. My mother, Sue Elmblad, was diagnosed with stage IV angiosarcoma, a rare and aggressive cancer. I was depressed and hopeless and unsure of where to turn for help. I was just beginning my senior year of college and believed I needed to drop out, at least for the semester. However, my mother encouraged me to stay in school. She said she would be at my graduation in the spring, whether physically or in spirit.


Milk and Honey Magazine explains how to become a strong woman - the woman you've always wanted to be!

Becoming Strong Women

Last week, during a trip to my grandma’s house, I discovered an old book called “The Book of Me” from when I was six years old. Illustrated in the style of Dr. Seuss, the book contains a variety of miscellaneous questions, everything from “how many freckles do you have?” to “what do you want to be when you grow up?” According to my answers, six-year-old me had one freckle (false) and dreamed of becoming an artist (true, but ill-advised based on my drawings throughout the book).


Milk and Honey Magazine advice for overcoming hurdles of life. Trust in Jesus, sweet girl.

Finding New Strength

My day has been hard. My long weekend has slipped away too quickly and now I’m cramming to finish my homework before the day is over. I’m on my third cup of coffee and the classical music I thought would calm my nerves seems to be doing the exact opposite. Reading reports, tests and Biology assignments are clogging up my brain and I’m starting to feel overwhelmed. I hear the kids outside my bedroom door fighting over who gets to use the red crayon and I’m about 10 seconds away from ripping the hair out of my head.
