Raising Our Perspective On Breakthrough By: Maureé Sullivan

I remember the December of 2016 like it was yesterday. Five months prior to that time, I had just graduated from college with a fashion business degree. I had dreams of doing “great things”- not necessarily sure what those things were at the time, but I knew that if I kept walking in the right direction I would eventually find my niche.

During college I had fallen in love with visual arts and creative direction and I knew that I…

Stand Still

The Oxford dictionary defines an unsung hero as, “a person who makes a substantive yet unrecognized contribution; a person whose bravery is unknown or unacknowledged.” 

Life is full of unsung heroes, people who will never be recognized fully or at all for the vital contributions they’ve made. An unsung hero is basically the opposite of that person who is always trying to “toot they’re own horn”, (I have to say I’ve never written that phrase out, and it looks kind…

A Hopeful Invitation

Have you ever been at the end of your rope, so to speak?

I know I have.

I’m not sure what picture comes to mind for you when you hear that saying, but for me I envision someone frantically pulling a rope towards themselves in the hopes that something promising would be attached to it. But to the person’s dismay, they not only come to the dissapointing end of the rope, they also find that whatever “thing” they hoped was attached…

“But when did we ever win in the end when we lowered our standards and dumbed down who we are to get what we think we want?
I’m more convinced than ever that the right person will never ask you to diminish yourself so that they can be comfortable being with you. They won’t shame you for your convictions. They won’t put down what you value. They won’t make you feel like you being you is…

The Why Behind the What

For the last four years I’ve been a full-time photographer…those are words I never thought I would say.
I get asked a lot how I got started, and honestly–I feel like that’s the best question to ask someone–Why did you start doing what you’re doing?
Photography for me has been this crazy journey. I wish I could say that it was my life-long dream to do this profession, or I was truly moved by some famous photo…

The Skinny on Coconut Oil

I cannot count the times I’ve heard friends and strangers alike talk about how they’re “going natural” with their skin care routines. These routines usually consist of lathering coconut oil on their skin and scrubbing their faces with sugar or coffee grinds (insert wincing face here).

I’ll give coconut oil users credit, they sure are loyal. One of my friends used to wash her face with it, swoosh it around in her mouth as mouthwash, cook…

Movement For Your Soul By: Kendall Young

She walks into the studio averting her eyes from the mirror stretching across the front of the room. Dipping her chin she glances discreetly at her companions for the next 60 minutes.
Refreshingly diverse for the boutique fitness world, she feels a little bit of her unease subside as she notices these other people are of all different ages and shapes. She takes a deep breath and finds her place at the barre with her weights.
She is here…

The Five Most Powerful Words

I haven’t been a counselor for very long but in the short time I’ve been practicing, the majority of clients I’ve worked with have endured some really traumatic experiences in their lives.

It never ceases to amaze me how we never know what another person has gone through. The lady checking you out at the grocery store, the business man in the three-piece suit that you pass on the street who appears to have it all together, the college student…

Are Your Standards Too High?

You know those articles, Facebook, or Instagram posts that are so personal and transparent that you literally hit post, publish, or submit with one eye open and then pray that it doesn’t sound like complete babble?

Well, I did exactly that when I submitted this article to share with the Grit and Virtue blog. I rarely share publicly about the inner workings of my romantic relationships, but this article just flowed out of my heart and I knew I needed…

Letting Go

As some of you may have known I’ve had the privilege from time to time to contribute articles to various Christian online publications. One publication that is near and dear to my heart is Propel Women. When I lived in California I worked closely with this organization, and I love dearly the amazing crew of people who serve so selflessly day in and day out so women all around the globe can have a real encounter with Jesus.

In case…
