My Strategy
  • Dig into The Word. It is your flashlight to the world.
  • Dig in your heels. Life is here to stay, and you can do it!
  • Dig into what you can do, right here, right now, and do your very best.

“Sometimes you feel like you’ve been buried, but you’ve actually been planted.”

My Mission Statement!


  • “This is such a wonderful post! I feel like when we accomplish something, we immediately want and sometimes believe that it was because of our strength, our talent, our own motivation and determination. But we need to be continually thanking the Lord for His strength, His wisdom, and His determination to stick with US when we fall short. So true that we need to thank God for giving us our talents, our motivation, our determination!!” ❤ ❤ (On Goals and Habits: Is it God’s Will?)


  • “Makayla, this was brilliant!! I loved reading, and everything you said is so true. I agree – if we let other things consume our identity then we won’t ever feel satisfied or complete – the only way to feel fully whole is to place our identity only in Jesus Christ!” (On Inner Beauty, Part 4)


  • “Such good thoughts, Makayla! This is a lesson I’ve had to continually learn over the course of my life. I feel like relying on God’s strength is something we have to purpose to do each day, every moment, every decision. Thank you for this reminder!” (On Leaning on My Own Understanding)
