Tired.

Rest by Sarah Trapp

I write this post tired. Exhausted. Worn out. It’s been a long work week, with crazy students, a sick husband, and not too much sleep. My body is tired. My soul is tired. When something weighs on me emotionally, I feel it physically. When lots of little things add up, I get slammed. Overwhelmed. Worn out. Sometimes I can’t explain my tiredness. Sometimes I can explain it all too well. Want to know something I’m really bad at? Rest. No matter how tired I am, I want to…

Summer Punch Time! Mmm.

Summer Time Punch

Summer is here, Yay!!!  Or not because of the heat.  But wherever you are on your feelings of summer, I thought it would be appropriate to demonstrate a move today that is quick and easy to fit in and packs a crazy workout in a short period of time.  Because let’s face it, time is a premium and no one has time to be stuck in a gym for an hour in the summer.  And since summer means cookouts and punch…

Heart, Be Still. God provides.

Coming from a Christian background with my dad as a pastor, it was instilled into me at a very young age just how fully God provides.  I’ve always looked at it from the material aspect of food, clothing and shelter.  But more recently God has shown me that He provides even more for our emotional and spiritual health.

As I am pursuing my opera, I am coached on a weekly basis to improve and understand the music and characters more.  Since having a baby, I would take her with me and she would, for the most part, sit through my lesson…

The Comparison Game, Part 2.

In my last post, I talked about what I call the Comparison Game. It’s a nasty cycle of becoming jealous of things we don’t have and comparing our lives against others. We let the circumstances and experiences of others determine our worth and the future that we create for ourselves in our minds. It’s a hard cycle to break, and I’m going to be completely honest: I haven’t broken it yet. Here’s a little bit of my struggle with the Comparison Game.

This issue has been on my heart for quite some time. I didn’t quite realize how much of…

Life Happens In the Mundane.

Hi! I’m Sarah! I’m guest blogging for Jess today, and sharing something that I’m learning and being challenged in as a wife and mother. I’m happy to share my heart today!

Change is something that either scares most people, or it’s seen as something that should be avoided. I think this is so that no extra energy has to be spent and also because we are tired. However, I find myself wishing for change more often than not. Not always big, life-altering change, but maybe one or…
