steps taken


Exactly a month ago I posted a bold and probably the most polarizing post I have ever posted on this blog, which has resulted in conversations beyond any I expected to have with family, friends, and strangers alike. But I have to say I would not change a bit. I say this because how blessed …

voting peace

I am tired. I am only twenty-two years old and I am tired. I was voted “Most Likely to be in Government” when I was in sixth grade after losing quite badly to the presidency of student government for the seventh-grade year (I’m sure there were popularity reasons to blame but it still sucked). I … Continue reading voting peace


I was an easily trusting kid growing up. Anything anyone told me I would believe and take for truth, it also meant I was gullible to a fault. Having two older brothers surely didn’t help this fact.

For years growing up I always imagined what a doomsday scenario would be like (not that I … Continue reading equipped


“As surely as God is faithful, our word to you has not been Yes and No. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes, For all the promises of God find their Yes in … Continue reading yes?


It has been a while hasn’t it? About a month and a half. Much longer than I thought I was going to take. So— if my writing slurs together or starts getting confusing, I may need some grace. Why the Sabbatical Mitchell? I took a break a while back because I found that I was … Continue reading absence


I am tired. For good reason this time. This past weekend I spent most of it awake doing the 24 hour musical at ACU Theatre as a co-music director. Which was not the plan for my weekend but one of the music directors caught strep the day before and had to bow out of the … Continue reading spinning.
