Taking on the World, While Laughing All the Way

Usually, when we face trials and tribulations in life, we are forced into fighting against the fear, the doubt, the anger, the depression, the despair that attempts to overwhelm us. As we do, the opposite, Christ-like characteristics are formed in our hearts. For instance, as we fight depression, we are formed into vessels of joy. As we wrestle with despair, we are immersed in hope. As we renounce bitterness, we are soaked with forgiveness. Throughout the process, we constantly becoming more and more like Jesus. Having learned these lessons myself, I delight to share the heaven-sent wisdom with you. Come and join me on this adventure!

Experience Life

Fill your life with experiences, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

Very Elizabeth Blog Posts

I started writing this blog as a way to share my experiences and desires. It was a way to talk about happiness and sadness. True happiness can be as simple or complex as we make it. It is whatever brings you joy, contentment, and satisfaction in your daily life. The search for happiness can be a lifelong journey, a process of growth, healing, and experimentation through different seasons of life. I pray my rambling will help you find happiness and contentment. I also, pray you will find laughter while you read it.
