Inspired to Heal

Sometimes, when I really think about it, I am terrified to think that I will be a doctor. God has spoken it over my life so clearly, so my fear is not whether it will happen, it’s that it will... Continue Reading →

I asked, and He Answered.

Tomorrow I have a Biochemistry exam, and I couldn't be more disappointed in myself.  I have been studying basically every waking minute that I haven't been in class or at a meeting.  My body is so exhausted-- to the point... Continue Reading →

A Surprise Conversation
