SATISFIED

Hello friends! It is almost officially the first day of fall! It is hard to believe that summer is over. This summer I went to Ballet Magnificat’s summer dance intensive for four weeks. It was absolutely amazing!! The Lord taught me so much during this time! An unique opportunity I had there was to learn…

THE WAY WE DRESS​​

Hello friends! Whether positive or negative, people judge others by what they wear. Subconsciously, we put people into categories based on their clothes. You might view someone wearing a black crop top and shorts very differently than someone wearing a pink dress and high heels.  Clothes are a wonderful way to express your personality. Therefore,…

Hello everyone! I am currently reading Sarah Beth Marr’s Dreaming with God. Through reading this book, the Lord is teaching me many things about surrender, trust, and especially dreams. To glorify God through dance, whether writing, teaching, or just dancing, is my overall dream for the future. If I could choose, I would dance professionally with…

STAYING IN SHAPE OVER CHRISTMAS BREAK

Hello and Merry Christmas everyone!! Before the big day, I wanted to talk to y’all about staying in shape over the break from dance. Don’t get me wrong – it is super important to keep your health in mind, but I think that sometimes we take it to the extreme. During break, it is hard…

But, the bad thing about this joy is that it slowly fades away as Christmas passes. Although this does make sense because once the holidays are over normal life begins again, I think…

PERFECTIONISM

Happy October!! I am so excited that it is autumn. It is one of my favorite seasons! So, in this post I want to talk about something I struggle with and something I am sure you have too: perfectionism. I am such a perfectionist. I don’t know if it is because of the fact that…

EVERYDAY WORSHIP

What do you think of when you think of worship? The definition of worship is “the feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity”.  Most of the time when we think of worship, we think of singing and raising our hands.  Although this is worship, I think it could be so much more….

BODY IMAGE

Welcome back!! Sorry it has been awhile! I just came back from two weeks at Ballet Magnificat’s SDI. The LORD taught me many things while I was there, but most of all He showed me that I had let the enemy have a huge part of my mind when it comes to how I view…

CORRECTION

Welcome back! The way we learn and grow as dancers is by correction.  Instead of viewing corrections as insults, we view them as compliments.  When an instructor corrects you, it shows that they are paying attention to you and they want to help you grow.  A dancer feels loved through receiving correction. The same is…

WHEN THINGS GO YOUR WAY

Hi friends! In my last post I talked about how to deal with disappointing times, but in this post I will be discussing how to handle it when things end up going your way.  I have been on both sides of the coin and I am sure you have too!  There are times when we…
