Crowns & Thorns

Today’s Worship Wednesday is a liiiittle bit different from a normal worship song. I am unapologetically a huge fan of Christian Hip Hop (CHH). I believe that CHH is the best crafted music with the label of Christ because, to be frank, most Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) is down right shamefully poor. Much like the…

Mudville 9!

So last weekend, my dad came to visit me in NYC. It was so much fun to see him and go with him to different places in the city. Because he had lived in Jersey City for a long time, he knew parts of Lower Manhattan that I hadn’t been to before. One of them…

Our Only Hope

Q1: What is our only hope in life and in death? A:  That I am not my own, 1 but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death, 2 to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ. 3 He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, 4 and has set me free from all…

Rend the Heavens

This song is so special to me. The first time I heard it, I was visiting my friend Dudley and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity for the 23 Day Challenge last year. A group of our friends went to Summit Church‘s University Campus in Fort Myers, FL. Their worship leader, Andy had written an album…

The Yankees!

Today’s Something New Saturday had to come a little bit late because I saw the New York Yankees today! The game was so much fun and it was my first time at Yankee Stadium! The stadium is totally gorgeous! We ended up getting a free giveaway with a tote bag and  souvenir cups! It was…

According to their website, Restore NYC was started by social worker, Faith Huckel in 2009 after she read about some “unusual domestic violence” cases in homeless shelters amongst foreign women. This sparked a…

Hebrews 12:1-2

Today’s Motivation Monday is a verse that always gets me excited and encouraged. My first memorable time learning it was with my accountability partner, Valorie. She and I had resolved to memorize Hebrews 11, the Hall of Faith. After learning about all of these people who served God “by faith,” I went on to read…

40 Slaves Now Free

This week, International Justice Mission shared on their Facebook page that their partners in South Asia were able to rescue 21 adults and 19 children from a brick kiln last Thursday! They’re now at their own homes! Thorn also shared a study from Covenant House International on the correlation between homelessness among youth and human…

My Heart is Yours

Today’s Worship Wednesday is a song I heard of while in college from some friends who went to a Passion conference.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Today’s motivation Monday continues the theme of Easter, spring, and new creations! Remember this week that in Christ, we are all new and every day is a new beginning!

MoMA

For today’s Something New Saturday, we see the Museum of Modern Art, here in NYC. I was only there for a few hours (it’s free from 4 to 8 on Fridays every week), but I got to see a pretty beautiful place in NYC some pics are below!
