Updates+Thoughts For 2018!

Hello! It has been so long since I’ve been on here! I’ve gotten so busy with other parts of my life and to be honest with you I lost my inspiration for this blog but it is coming back! I wanna keep up with this and post as much as possible. So this is just a post to update you guys on what I will be doing in the future with this blog and some thoughts that I have for it, but I want your input! Let me know your thoughts! So something that I will be doing is I will be posting a weekly bible verse on my Facebook Page. I’m super excited to be doing that! Something you can read throughout the week and maybe get peace or encouragement from it. I would love to have discussions about the verse if you have any input towards it. I do have a story I want to share, which will be my next post! I’d like to have it posted sometime on Sunday so keep an eye out for that, if you are not following me then you can follow me and you will be emailed very time I post! Or you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram for updates about posts as well. Links to both of those are at the bottom of the screen!:) So I really don’t have much for this post, I’ll share a little bit about what’s been going on lately. I started senior year which if you are a senior or already graduated then you know it comes with a little pressure. So I was really stressed about that and I am working as well and with every job there were dramas and complications that added to the stress. Not to mention college…I am preparing myself for that which I might make a separate post about how I am preparing and all that (let me know if you’d want that). Then there were birthdays and holidays and it was just a lot going on. I am going at a little bit of a slower pace now, I found ways to not be so stressed all of the time and to be overall more positive which has helped in very single aspect of my life. I’m finding more and more inspiration for this blog and I am so excited about it! I’m glad to be back. God has been so good to me and I am truly blessed, I have some stories about that I’d love to share with you, and if you have any stories I’d love to hear them! I am going to leave it at that for now. I don’t want this to be to long of a post, but yes I am back and with lots to share! Thanks so much for sticking with me and joining me and I will talk to you in my next post!

Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him.”


Introduction + Inspiration.

Hey there! I’m so glad you could join me in this fun and exciting journey! To start things off I want to tell you what inspired me to make this blog. As silly as this sounds, it started with a mug. Yes, a coffee mug.

“This girl runs on coffee & grace”.

When I saw this mug and read the words my head got filled with exciting ideas for a new blog, so I instantly bought the mug and took it home, and started filling a notebook with my ideas. The word grace especially stood out to me because I know that God shows me grace when I don’t deserve it, and I really like coffee. I don’t want this post to be to long, even though I have a lot to share, so I’ll keep it short and sweet. 

When I saw the “coffee and grace” mug something stirred in me and I realized that I wanted to share with you some of my life in West Virginia and my adventures with my friends or family.  I’ve come to realize that no matter where you live or what kind of family you have, WE have something in common: coffee and grace. Coffee makes me think of the common ground (ha ha) where we meet as human beings and grace reminds me that we all need it more than we need the coffee. I know that I am blessed to be here on this planet, in this beautiful state, with my sometimes wonderful and sometimes not-so-wonderful family and those that I am lucky to call my friends. So…

I think that’s about it for now.  I would love for you to join me as I learn what it means to run on coffee (lots of cream and sugar please) and grace. I will talk to you again very soon! If you are interested in finding out more about me you can click on where it says ‘About’.
