Milk and Honey Magazine's advice on how to trust God through change as a young woman. He loves you!

Yearning for Change

Last week I went on an epic road trip with some of my best friends from college. For some it was a grad trip; for all of us, it was a celebration of friendship and freedom and the beauty of our surroundings. Together we were closing a chapter of our lives, enjoying one last hurrah as a group before leaving for grad school or jobs in different cities.


Milk and Honey Magazine tips for young women on budgeting their money in a God-honoring way.

Breaking Down a Bad Budget

I don’t know about you, but paying taxes, choosing health insurance, and budgeting weren’t covered in my college skills class. When I graduated from college in 2015, I entered into life with my husband without a good grasp of how to navigate all of our bills, taxes, and other responsibilities.

This year, we’ve committed to breaking bad spending habits. If you use a credit or debit card as your main form of payment (and you probably do), you know how easy it is to swipe your card without thinking twice about it.

Graduate School Survival Guide

Graduate school can be an intensely challenging time that tests an individual’s strength, integrity, mental capacity, and work ethic. I want to share a little bit about my grad school experience that may offer some hope and insight into the dark depths of the mid-quarter blues and the insurmountable stress levels that seem to never abate. Despite loving the content, enjoying classes, and desiring to do well, the daily grind of grad school can still permeate those positive qualities.

Milk and Honey Magazine explains how to learn to say NO to people. If you don't take car of yourself, you'll become drained. And that's no good for anybody, babydoll!

It's OK to say NO

Hi, my name is Olivia and I’m a yesaholic... let me explain. I’m prone to saying yes to everyone. I don’t like letting people down and a lot of the time I’ll push my own sanity aside to make sure I don’t. It’s safe to say I’m a bit of a people pleaser.

But something that we all have to grasp is: IT IS OK TO SAY NO

Mondays… am I right?

It seems that as we get older, many of us fall into the never-ending trap of working hard all week, living for the weekend, and then dreading the moment we must return to work. Occasionally we find things to look forward to mid-week, like fitness classes and happy hours, but for the most part our days become monotonous: eat, work, sleep, repeat.

#Squadgoals

Ahhh…it seems like just yesterday that I was rackin’ up my mom’s credit card debt at Target, buyin’ binders, ramen noodles, and a turquoise shower caddy for my quickly approaching college adventure. I remember hoping that, in addition to earning my Bachelor’s degree, I would obtain my MRS. Degree. Although I have yet to meet my future husband, God has provided me with my future bridesmaids. Friends who, first and foremost, set my eyes on Christ when life’s distractions threaten to tear my gaze from Him.

You >Your Resumé

I am soon approaching my one year mark of graduation with already two jobs under my belt, and I do not feel disadvantaged, in fact, I feel encouraged! Encouraged to share 5 things that my jobs have taught me in the past year. This week has been especially telling, and has encouraged me to spend some time soul searching. With changes in my job, I have been forced to search for a new career, but am struggling to find a good fit. I know that I do not want to simply jump into a job because an offer was extended, yet I fear being too selective.

Conquering an E.D.

I was thirteen years old when I learned what a calorie was.

I was always a slender child, largely in part to the organic and vegetarian food my mom kept around the house, but around the time of my eighth grade graduation, puberty and junk food joined forces to add a few extra pounds. It was the age of walking to Starbucks with friends to get frappucinos; buying king-size chocolate bars from 7-11; and eating pizza at youth group gatherings. I’d always been thin, so I took for granted that my figure wouldn’t change with my eating habits. 


Milk and Honey Magazine explains how to ditch expectations and remove envious thoughts. You are exactly where God wants you, sweet girl!

Ditch Your Milestones

I used to think by the time I was 24, I’d be married with a baby. By the time I was 30, I'd have had a few promotions at work. At 35, I’d have traveled the world. 40, I’d be attending my son’s high school football game. I’d be stuffing the van and taking my kids to college by 45. 50, I’d become an empty nester. I’d buy a boat or an RV or something luxurious at 55 and call myself adventurous. 56, I’d welcome my first grandchild.
