steps taken


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. In fact, when I was maybe 6 years old I loved playing at my church playground after church … Continue reading trust?

“he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” 1 Peter 1:3b, ESV I hate the Coronavirus. I hate the Quarantine. But— the thing I hate most about it, is the dominance it has on our conversations with one another. Every single time … Continue reading plagued by control

a rescued one

Happy [post] Easter! He is Risen indeed! There is much to celebrate and much to reflect. If I’m going to be honest, this Easter was the most “Easter” I have ever felt before. Much like what I sad last week, the “Saturday” feeling of social isolation was very real and the unknown has been a … Continue reading a rescued one


Day 4,873. Okay— maybe not. But it sure feels like it. The longevity and never ending feeling is just one of the many challenges of life today. I mean— how many episodes CAN you watch in one sitting. 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.

down but not out

I hate that phrase. “Down but not out.” Not entirely— but when you are down and you hear that phrase it just feels a bit snobby and unnecessary to be told. Of course, everyone has their own feelings on this phrase as either optimists or pessimists, but I think my views just varies depending on … Continue reading down but not out

Peter was my least favorite disciple when I was a kid (we’re not counting Judas in this, it’s for the drama). He was constantly asking questions and messing up and just being bold with his choices in front of Jesus. I mean— come on, it just seems kind of…rude? Right? I remember the morning I … Continue reading grown up
