big crumb apple muffins.

This muffin recipe is probably my new favorite. They are so delicious! I made these for a church breakfast and they were a huge hit! My absolute favorite way of eating them is when they come right out of the oven. Nothing beats warm, soft, gooey apple muffins with a scrumptious crumb topping. Highly recommend [...]

trust & obey.

I posted a while back on Instagram about having faith even when life gets messy ( you can check out the insta post here >> @simplyhisdaughter ) and the more I thought of the post, the more I realized that the post needed more than just a small paragraph on Instagram. I believe that it is a topic [...]

be still.

Ahhh! It has been way too long once again. I hate it, I really do. It seems like every time you turn around, "life" gets in the way. But hey, I have learned to be joyful and thankful even in the midst of school and crazy to do lists. Here's a little update on my [...]

make it matter.

Last night, something really changed some of my perspectives. I had not planned on spending my fourth of July evening watching Joey and Rory's movie, but I am so glad that I did. Watching a family walk through what Joey and Rory walked through was absolutely heart wrenching. Seeing Joey have baby Indiana and then [...]

A quick swirl of two-tone mint-chocolate frosting and a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips created mint-chocolate chip cupcake perfection! Ingredients. *Yield 24 Cupcakes* for the [...]

soccer camp 2017.

If I were to sum up Soccer Camp in one word, it would be: Amazing. If I were to sum up in a sentence what God taught me, it would be: Sometimes the sweetest of moments comes from even the smallest of kids. Everything about it from start to finish was amazing! This past week brought [...]

I made this cake for Father's Day, and let me tell you, it was AMAZING! You can't beat this cheesecake filled chocolate bundt cake with its rich yet tender chocolate cake, surprise cheesecake filling, and thick fudgy glaze? YUM! That's my kind of cake, and I hope it's yours too. Ingredients. *Yield 12 servings* for the filling: [...]

happy Monday.

Hey there, Monday! To be honest, I really don't like Mondays... but who does? Monday morning you are still running on weekend energy, but by early afternoon it just goes down hill from there. But why? Why does it have to be that way? I have realized that if you don't have the mindset of Christ, and are being so [...]

lessons with Emily.

Camp was one word. Amazing! Like really amazing! But honestly, how do you not have a great time at The Wilds?! Thank you so much to all of you that prayed for me and my youth group this past week. We all appreciated it very much! The theme for this Summer at camp was "joy," [...]

breaking of self.

Hey there! It has been awhile since one of my normal blog posts, so here is a little peek into what has been going on in my life lately... First off, I am going to start off with something that has been on my heart lately. Recently my Pastor preached a sermon that contained these words: "God [...]
