22 Things I Learned at 22

  1. When God has something for you, you won’t be able to run from it for long.
  2. Community is so SO important.
  3. It’s okay to be scared, but do the thing, even if you have to do it afraid.
  4. Guarding your heart is so important, and more difficult that it sounds.
  5. It’s okay to say ‘NO’ to people and things. You’re not letting them down or disappointing them, but you are preventing yourself from reaching a point of burn out.
  6. I need God just as much on my best day as on my worst.
  7. When I don’t feel equipped, prepared or good enough, God will always fill in the gaps.
  8. Getting your heart broken sucks, but breaking someone else’s heart sucks even more.
  9. Europe has terrible coffee, and is a sure way to kick your caffeine addiction in the butt.
  10. My testimony is powerful, and has nothing to do with me, but EVERYTHING to do with God.
  11. Surrendering things to God means laying them down, and not picking them back up again.
  12. Don’t compare your life to what you see on social media. It’s just one big highlight reel.
  13. When you give everything to God, you better believe He’s gonna use all of it.
  14. Trying new foods can be fun, but also involves lots of mental strength (ramen, sushi and poke).
  15. Being vulnerable is so uncomfy, but so important for growth and healing.
  16. my weight is not consistent, but I love my body in each and every season.
  17. No matter how far away from God I feel I’ve run, He knows exactly where I am, and will wait gladly with open arms for me.
  18. The worst is never the worst.
  19. Never settle on anything. ever. just. don’t. do. it.
  20. You are only responsible for your response, not another person’s reaction.
  21. I have more reasons to sing than to fear (facing stage fright gets easier).
  22. The way you speak to and about yourself matters. Your thoughts matter, so let them be lovely.
